Absolutely Not Your Monkey

My flickodometer just turned over the 50,000 mark, i.e. my photos have been viewed 50,000 times since I started using Flickr. Not as many as some people, but respectable. Not long ago I was contacted by an art agent in town who is interested in putting on some exhibits of my photography around town. All I need to do is figure out how to blow up my digital prints to an acceptable size, and we’re in business. It could be pretty cool, in fact.

In other news, it turns out that, previously unbeknownst to me, this journal actually does have comments; the comments and options only seem to appear on the individual post pages for some reason, so you have to click on the time to go to the individual post page to comment. And they’re in black, so you have to mouse over them to see them. I’ve written Blogger about this. Hopefully they’ll reply with some kind of solution; if not, I’ll just leave it the way it is, as my code at this point is like one of those cartoon closets that explodes all over anyone who dares open the door.

Now, all of you who have heard me say at one point or another, “…and that’s why I don’t have comments!” are probably wondering why I should have a change of heart on this issue. The main reason I took comments down in the first place was to placate a certain friend of mine who had great, unresolvable issues with the whole concept of comments on blogs. What’s different now? First of all, said friend has told me to screw myself, left the country, and, incidentally, installed comments on his blog. Secondly, these newfangled comment systems the kidz are using these days have moderation built right in, so I can avoid all of the “Screw you, man, you only write about yourself all the time!” kind of comments I inevitably get. Not that I’ll be getting any comments as I’ve probably lost most of my readers over the past year or so due to infrequent updates and less-than-inspiring content.

And now, for those who expect some kind of continuity around here, I should add that Ms. Li Xie Shu-zhen won the borough election. Her shop was crowded with well-wishers when I passed by that night on my way home. We also have the good fortune, so far, to have avoided being beat up by the losing parties, which is certainly a point in our favor.

  1. Poagao —

    if you search your template, at the beginning, your comment color should be specified somewhere in the commands for comments.

  2. I looked in the comments portion of the code and didn’t see any references to font color. Adding such references had no effect, no matter where I put them.
