Thoughts on winter driving in Montreal.

When I was a kid, when it snowed local authorities would actually deploy equipment to take the snow off the streets. However that seems like an enchanted and mystical time never to be seen again. We had a snowstorm in Montreal on Sunday, and three days later the streets are still lined with snowbanks — some several feet high — and even the highways are covered in the stuff, stretching 20-minute commutes into two and three hours. What exactly are we paying taxes to the useless assclowns at the city and provincial levels for, anyway?

Blog update

I managed to “unbork” things that the WordPress “update” messed up — mostly by removing dead links — and put in a silly placeholder for the “about” page so clicking the link doesn’t cause an error anymore. All in all however, I’m pretty determined to write my own software again and ditch WP, at least I’m sure my own SW won’t have the sort of surprises I’ve been seeing this week.

More things I learned since yesterday!

Apparently the WordPress upgrade completely borked my pages (like “about”) and categories as well. Gee, thanks, WordPress! So, don’t bother clicking any of the links near the title bar, they probably just won’t work. And since I have 1700+ entries I really can’t be bothered to go in and edit each bloody entry manually. So, I think I need to put WordPress in the list of things I’m not too impressed with lately.
