This is me testing some fancy (clunky) plugins that will cross post these things to Facebook and Twitter. Will it work? I have no idea. I went through enough insanely complicated and complicatedly insane configurations to get this far, and I’m still not sure I have the Facebook plugin I want. We shall see. I’m also trying to fill this post up with plenty of ridiculously long and pointless words to see when the Facebook plugin cuts off the excerpt. I guess I’ll just have to post things for real some time and just tweak as I go? Yes? No? Maybe? Abort? Retry? Ignore? Fail? Old school computer error messages nobody born after 1990 will understand? Oh yes.
Oh my word, what is this? WHAT IS THIS? It’s a post! Exciting! My last one was about a year ago, how scary is that?
So what am I up to? I’m not sure. There is some interesting political stuff going on. And by “interesting,” I meant “stupid.” Of course, what other kinds of political stuff could be going on in this administration? Also, I just realized I miss all the liberals that would come around and try to comment something coherent enough to base an argument on that wasn’t just full of hateful rage to anyone who holds an opinion contrary to their own. I miss that. It kept me sharp. It made me research. It steeled me against the idiocy of the human race.
There’s also some interesting stuff going on in video gaming. The least of which is me attempting a bit of gameplay commentary on my own YouTube channel appropriately named RivenwolfTV! My interest waned a bit, and I let content slip for the last month due to me getting sidetracked by my own personal Mario Marathon, which powered through Super Mario Brothers and Super Mario Galaxy (up to two last comet levels and all the purple coins) and then promptly got distracted by visiting my grandparents and working on a project down at their house. After that, I was cleverly distracted by the strong desire to play a game of good caliber, a la Perfect Dark on the Nintendo 64. Then I realized that Perfect Dark was ported over in HD to the Xbox 360 in all its goodness, and I’ve been playing that.
During all that, my Xbox Live account was hijacked for the notorious 10,000 Microsoft Points robbery and my account had to be locked (and subsequently unlocked for the purchased of Perfect Dark) and my credit card number had to be changed. That set in motion a series of unfortunate events that eventually led to the suspension of my Steam account because Valve decided to wait to charge my card for a game until that one day when I reported my credit card for fraudulent activity and payment was denied. I may discuss that later. It’s pretty terrifying what they threatened to do to my entire library of over 100 games because the purchase of a single game failed over a fault of their own making.
But now I’m back and wondering how to integrate WordPress into Twitter and Facebook so it automatically pushes a blog post link to the other sites I use. Is there something that’ll do the same for Google+? I don’t actually use Google+. Does anyone use Google+? Is it popular enough to have plugins that publish articles to it? Who knows. I’ll look into it later.
Woah. WordPress has a word count now. I’m around 500 words already and I didn’t even have to think for any of it. If only NaNoWriMo words came this easily. If only that wasn’t 3 months away already. If only I still wasn’t in university, that might actually be something I’d look forward to. Either way, I’m doing it. It’ll just be really hectic and frantic and amazing instead of… Well, hectic, frantic and amazing.
But I’m done for now. Bye!
