"Get the Picture? Neither Do I."

I knew there would be unforeseen complications to the recent under-the-hood behind-the-scenes below-the-surface under-your-nose inside-the-box off-the-beaten-path under-the radar behind-the-curtain between-the-seat-cushions off-the-wall in-the-crawlspace and up-the-tailpipe changes to the ol’ blog. And while some of you (mostly at Twitter) have said nice things about some of the Old Content that has been returned to the Archive, I am still quite anxious about what may be lurking back there. I did have an annoying amount of difficulty posting the Overthinkin’ Bean graphic in the MetaFilter-reference post yesterday, and have since discovered that some (but not all) of the pics in older posts have disappeared. Apparently, somewhere in Conversionland, the addresses in the posts started pointing at places where the pictures were not, or just never stopped pointing at where they used to be. THAT’S A FAIL, WORDPRESS. BRINGS YOUR WEBLOG SUPPORT AVERAGE DOWN FROM A-MINUS TO B-PLUS.

Anyway, fixing it all appears right now to require going in and re-entering long and goofy-looking URLs, so that’s one more item on my It’ll Take Me Years To Do List. But if you, my happy, tolerant, possibly-drugged-up webfriends, should find something missing [which reminds me, my Oxymoron Site is also on that List] that you’d like me to restore ASAP, leave me a note in the comments for this post (if they work) or on the Contact Form (if it works), or if neither works, give me an Angry Twitter. Which would be a great name if Burger King ever wanted to make a chicken sandwich like its “Angry Whopper”. But I digress. Interminably.
