Big scary message

I tried to queue up a Dead Pool an hour ago and got a nasty WordPress database error. The suggested fix involved mucking around in the bowels of the blog, up to my elbows in other people’s diagnostics and other shit I don’t understand.

It may have dropped some things. Comments maybe. Maybe even posts.

In the end, there were some unrecoverable errors, but everything seems to be working. A little slow, maybe? Hard to tell. Our internet isn’t the best.

The Dead Pool should drop in a couple of hours and I’ll keep an eye
on the stability. Just a reminder, though — I have no idea
what I’m doing.

The new-ishly released WordPress ‘foundation’ (for lack of the correct term I can’t remember), while a positive improvement, is not playing nice with some old WP themes.

I feel your pain, Sweasel.

Regarding WordPress: I am reminded of Gehm’s corollary to Clark’s Third Law:

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.

That might explain it, Lester. My theme is custom and very, very funky. It doesn’t play nice with all sorts of things.

A little something to brighten your day, Swease…

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
