Rumors of my Death Were Greatly Exagerated

Despite what Contagion and Harvey seem to have been thinking, Sally has not killed me from peanut butter related poisoning. Sadly, there are a whole bunch of reasons that I have not been here, so boring that even listing them makes me want to commit suicide even now.

I feel bad that I have neglected people who have been good to me, and Contagion :-P However...

...my role at work has changed significantly and I am now in partnership in two business ventures and contracting for a thrid, so life has become a little hectic to say the least (plus I spend most of the day coding a website and other applications - so typing on my blog sometimes feels like a chore).

I missed all the news. I have no idea what is going on in the blogosphere, whether Evil Glenn has taken over the world or whether I have any people who bother reading me any more. I don't even read Sally anymore! Not good.

So your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to point me to the best of the recent posts that I might have missed (even if it in archives) so that I might catch up on my reading.

PS - Sorry to hear the Harvey lost his job. Someone who has been consistantly funny and a good friend even when I vanished does not deserve that kind of treatment. If I had a job to offer Harv, I would offer it to you.

Christ almighty, it's about time!

But how do we really know it's actually Alex posting and not just that Sally found his password?

If he starts calling you "Shelly", you'll know it's me ;-)

All I can say is that your first move should be to adjust your setting to show the last 20 posts instead of the last 7 days.

Naked blog is VERY embarrassing.

See Weblog Configurations>Preferences & click the little question mark by "number of days". You'll find this helpful bit of advice:

Number of days displayed
The number of days displayed by default on your index templates. Note that you can override this behavior in your MTEntries tag; this is merely the default, used when you do not supply MTEntries with any attributes.

For example, if you wish to display the last 15 entries that you have posted to your weblog, you could use the lastn attribute to MTEntries instead of relying on the default behavior:

<MTEntries lastn="15">

Oh, and the only important thing you missed is my second blogiversary (June 21st).

This year's theme is "toys".

We are glad that Sally didn't Off You, as Contagion has been suspecting!

No news on my front. Me, Hubby, 3 kids, and 1 hamster. Same ol' boring life. No hurricanes... yet.
