A Corporate Whore

When did Jesse James become such a whore? He’s endorsing everything from Coors Beer to AutoZone to Yoo-hoo. Yoo-hoo, for fuck’s sake!

When I first saw a programme about Jesse James on TV, I thought he was such a cool guy. Now, his appeal is waning as a result of his willingness to shill whatever piece of shit product someone waves in his face. Granted, I’m sure he’s making a ton of money, but come on, Yoo-hoo?

Also, I’d like to apologise to anyone who clicked on the suicide girls link without knowing about the site beforehand. In the future I’ll find some way to denote when links are not work safe.

One more thing, I mentioned in a previous post about how my blog freaked out when a friend of mine posted a comment. I figured out why that happened (so if you run MovableType or are considering it, you might want to pay attention). By default, MT displays the last X-number of days worth of posts (X being a number you specify in your blog configuration). Since I wanted it to display the most recent post, but only the most recent post, I chose one day. Two problems arose from this, however. First, if you post twice within a 24 hour period, both posts are displayed. Second, if you don’t post for over 24 hours, then make a change to the site that spawns a rebuild (of the index page, such as the addition of a comment to a more-than-24-hours-old post or an edit to one of the same), it displays a blank page because it’s trying to do what it’s been told; to display only the last 24 hours worth of contents. So if you haven’t posted in the last 24 hours and a change is made, you end up with a blank page.

So is there a way around this? Well, you could increase the number of days displayed, but that doesn’t help someone like me who wants no more than one post displayed at a time. The key is to look for the <MTEntries> tag and change it to say <MTEntries lastn=”X”> where X is, once again, a number you provide; this time the number of posts you want displayed. This tells MT to display the previous X posts, regardless of when they were written.
