Another Maintenance Day

...The number of social services you have to register a blog with to make it visible is really amazing.  Right now, I'm fighting with a service (not to be named) I had previously registered with, but which now won't integrate my account properly, so thinks this blog is already claimed by somebody else.  Perfect.  I suppose I'll be contacting maintenance.

Note that each post now has new buttons to play with at the bottom.  Very soon, navigating to this blog will cause everyone immediate sensory overload, and you won't be able to see the content through the social bookmarking buttons and widgets.  Notice we have a Facebook like button in the sidebar, too.  I'm still trying to figure out how to get that in each post, but I need to do something fancy with code or something.

That reminds me:  I need to find a news ticker to replace the old one that crashed.

Oh, and by the way, pickafig.com, the Catholic social bookmarking site, is awful.  Most of the time I try to navigate to that site, the server's crashed, and their widgets are primitive in the extreme.  What do you mean I have to publish my post, copy the URL of my post into your button code, edit the post again, and paste in the edited code?  I'm suppose to do that every time I post just so one or two of my readers who click the button can see your 503 error page?

I guess it wouldn't be Catholic if it were technology-savvy; I mean, when's the last time you saw a Catholic parish website that was updated regularly?
