The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

There's always another wrong button

I managed to hose up the previous-page links on my WordPress site today, which eventually proved to be the fault of a badly-written (by me) .htaccess file. I wrote it in a text editor, not in the WordPress editor, and duly CHMODed it to 644, but the syntax was twisted beyond any reasonable parsing. This also explains why a copy of said file wasn't working properly at this site.

Incidentally, it is not wise to open forty-three (!) Firefox browser tabs at once, especially if you have a QuickTime video running in one of them, unless you have more RAM than God, which seems unlikely. (Then again, there is no evidence to indicate that God runs Windows, though I suspect He allowed Job to download a copy.)

In Eden, there was an Apple.

I got the impression from Genesis that Adam had a Wang, but I could be assuming too much.

Besides, Sean, what happened to them after they touched the Apple?

The eyes of them both were opened, McG.

And Solomon, in his wisdom, would rather touch an Apple than his lover. "Stay me with Flagons, comfort me with Apples: for I am sick of love."

(The "Flagon" was a precursor to the iPod, according to my concordance.)
