Press This

WordPress removed the “Press This” bookmarklet because:

  • WordPress developers are fucking idiots.
  • WordPress developers fucking hate you, the user.

Most of the links I put up on this site were usually through the bookmarklet. “We just want to increase security”, they say, then break the functionality without a proper equivalent in place.

They’re probably friends with Firefox developers, who also like to break with the past without regard to their users.

But what do users know, right? Developers always know better.

Tonight I encountered a bad surprise:

This was the first time in over a decade after being murdered (electronically, that is) I connected to this network. I… I do feel like something has gone into the night, never to return. I expected for there to be at least three or four people. The hardcore users who, no matter what, would be there to show a friendly /whois to anyone who cared to join.

I was a hardcore IRC user. I jumped IPs, ran bnc, shells, anything to hide my real location and identity.

Clean up as you go

There really is no solution, I think. There’s only the frankly awful act of dragging your sorry ass into the kitchen, loading the dishwasher, and wiping down the counters, after dinner, before you land on the couch like an anvil and give up the last of your energy for the day. Just start there. I’m sorry. It’s terrible. It’s a nightmare. But just do it.
