I HAVE MISSED YOU ALL. EVEN YOU, YEAH YOU. THE REALLY STINKY ONE(s).
It’s been a long time I know, but I have a few hours free to engage here, so it’s time to catch up. Prepare for a flurry of likes in your directions…mwahahaha!
I hope you have all been well. What have I been doing? Well, there’s always work, then moving house, then more work and why oh why are days only 24 hours in length that’s nowhere near enough to get everything done and then suddenly I run out of furniture—-
So yeah, all of that has been going on. Things are starting to settle down here, but the Maintenance Hive-Mind will be doing a flying visit to the United State of Americans next week, so that will again interrupt attempts to get back here and just engage.
One last thing I guess I should mention is that some of my time over the past few months has been devoted to making a Chrome extension that I finally managed to finish this weekend. Basically, when I started to get a large number of followers on here (I’m talking >500), I found I couldn’t keep up with everyone who I was following, and who was following me. I was following too many people, and I had to really work hard and scroll through a lot of pages to find posts by the people who I spoke to personally most often. I was finding the Tumblr interface for going through who you follow, and who follows you, kinda not suited to what I wanted, so, being a picky bastard, I made my own interface for keeping up with people.
The extension is called Horizon Scanner and it basically lets you create lists of your favourite blogs - and not just Tumblr ones, Twitter ones and other RSS feeds too (I know, I got carried away) - and it notifies you when they have been updated. When doing tests prior to release, I found it was really helpful for keeping up-to-date with the people I wanted to stay in contact with the most, and not lose track of them.
Anyway, time for me to now catch up on your posts and lives and drama and gossip…much love to all of you who download the extension and give it a test, even more love to those of you who don’t, or don’t even get to this far down in this growing wall of text ahhh it’s so long I think it might topple and crash down upon me and furniture.
