"Do Not Adjust Your Set"

2009

We do not quite control the transmission, but we’re trying. Yes, the Web’s Semi-Beloved Wendell is attempting to make some adjustments to The Blog’s inner workings, including one that will allow frequent and possibly random style changes. So things may not be fully functional for a little while (which may be defined as anywhere from a few hours to the remainder of the Obama Administration) but when I’m finished this little site is going to be totally Web 2.1 (which may be defined as anything from a few more rounded corners to user customization via telepathy).

In the mean time, I may be taking a brief break from posting. NOT because of the other work I’m doing on The Blog; I have tried ‘focusing on the back-end’ before, and that way goes MADNESS! But because of some work I’m having done on myself. This afternoon (5/6/09), I am undergoing some medical tests that may or may not lead to hospitalization that may or may not be almost immediate that may or may not limit my internet access. Or if may just extend my semi-bedridden state of the last few weeks during which I have blogged like crazy to the rest of my un-natural life.

But I am taking up a new personal mantra, via the title character of Phil & Kaja Foglio’s wonderful webcomic Girl Genius, a character who has brought a whole new meaning to the word “plucky”, and who recently made the proud declaration:
icanworkwiththat
(I altered the image slightly to remove extraneous dialogue in favor of the main message… if it is in any way esthetically ungood, it’s all my fault… but I CAN WORK WITH THAT.)

Your Turn...
