New Name Thursday, Dec 14 2006 

Ok, I was getting sick of “Superlicious”. This is a much better name, and it alludes to my love of old Nintendo games. “The Minus World”, of course, being a famous glitch in Super Mario Bros. that creates a never ending water level.

Feedback would be much appreciated.


Back in the US Thursday, Aug 3 2006 

Hey, if you were wondering why Superlicious seemingly stopped over the summer, it’s because I was away in Northern Ireland enjoying the unusually hot weather (global warming, anyone?). I assure you, I’m not dead (although I may smell funny).

By the way, you’re missing some serious entertainment in the comments for my ever-growing “Best Songs Ever” list if you haven’t been watching it. Case in point:

Go to a record store and spend a little money…It’ll do you some good…For now, you should lock yourself in a small windowless room and cower in the corner while seriously considering suicide…That is all.

A record store? Apparently this guy hasn’t read this post.

The First Post of 2006 Sunday, Jan 1 2006 

It’s always cool to see people’s URIs on WordPress blogs changing from /2005/ to /2006/ at the beginning. At least for me. Yesterday’s problem is almost solved (hint: it involved caching…sort of). May 2006 bring all Superlicious readers prosperity yadda yadda.

Oh, and can someone Digg this site? I’m curious to see how a blog like this will perform under that kind of pressure.

Step Into Christmas Saturday, Dec 24 2005 

Welcome to my Christmas post! I’d like to thank you for the year. See, I was writing this Christmas post to say it’s nice to have you here.

Merry Christmas, readers of Superlicious. If you’re the sort of person who reads but never comments, now would be a good time to say hello.

To the readers of Superlicious, without whom this blog would just be one guy talking to himself!

On XFN, Part Deux Friday, Dec 16 2005 

(Part One was published a year ago on my old blog. Damned if I can find it. It’s not necessary to understand this anyway)

Tantek Çelik recently asked:

And if you have a blog, ask yourself, why haven’t you joined the XHTML Friends Network?

Because, Tantek, I find it superfluous. I just can’t see the usefulness of saying wether a link is my friend, muse, crush, whatever the fuck you call it. In fact, I don’t see any real value to the average user of any Microformat in general. It seems like a geeky thing, sort of like having links to every word/paragraph on the page. Even if you did have a 100% usable, unobstrusive way of showing the contents of rel and rev links, who the fuck would care? I know I wouldn’t.

Also, it’s sightly hypocritical for a guy whose blog’s permalinks are junk like to be implying ways to make my blog better. But that’s a minor point; an aside.

So, in conclusion, don’t expect to see Superlicious using any sort of oblique, esoteric “microformat” anytime soon.

Update: CM Harrington has written why he thinks microformats are useless on his blog.

Hello Carnival of the Godless Folks! Sunday, Nov 13 2005 

This is just a quick hello to everyone coming here from Pharyngula for the Carnival of the Godless. I just barely missed the cutoff point for submissions last time, so my entry is in this edition (#27).

So, thanks for coming and I hope you enjoyed my submission. I plan to write something for the next carnival as well.

Where hast thou been? Wednesday, Nov 9 2005 

Where have I been? I’ll tell you. I’d have posted if I could. See, my internet has suffered a bit over these last few days. I don’t know what the hell is wrong, but my connection strength has been low and it’s been off and on continuously. I did learn a new trick from my dad (who used to work for Compaq). It’s probably painfully obvious to most of you, but I’ll document it here for myself.

  1. Open up Command Prompt and type in ipconfig/release
  2. Wait a few seconds
  3. Type in ipconfig/renew

And you have reset your connection.

Oh, and remember I was talking about how I was building my own feed reader? Here’s a screenshot. It’s not even in alpha yet, but I’m getting there. (Why can’t more people send Last-Modified and Etag headers? Molly and Dean, I’m looking at you guys.)

Why do you or do you not believe in God? I’ll randomly choose a comment to get a free invite.


I’m in the Theoretical Money! Thursday, Oct 27 2005

How much is your blog worth?

WordPress Technorati Tags Favelet Friday, Oct 14 2005 

A sweet hack for all users (and maybe even regular WordPress users). I’ve whipped a neat little favelet for adding Technorati tags to your WordPress posts. The source code is below (WPMU has some serious formatting problems, so I couldn’t make it a link).

javascript:var $tags=prompt('Enter tags', ''); $tags = $tags.replace(/([^ ]+)/gi, '<a href="$1&quot; rel="tag">$1</a>'); document.forms[0].elements['content'].value+='\n\nTags: '+$tags; void 0;
