A perspective on recent site events

I posted this at, um, a dating site:

“I just lost the database with 7200 blog posts.”

Oh, that’s bad.

“No, that’s good. All the original posts are archived, and the site will run much more quickly now without all that dead weight.”

Oh, that’s good.

“No, that’s bad. It plays hell with the continuity, especially if you have a regular audience.”

Oh, that’s bad.

“No, that’s good. At least they can’t take me for granted.”

[this could go on for hours]

It is with great relief that I announce that it did not.

    The feed seems to be questionable at the moment.

    Sounds like you paid a visit to Archie Campbell’s barber shop.

    Ummm, I think I may have a small clue as to your singlehood.
