I have people skills; I am good at dealing with people. Can't you understand that? What the hell is wrong with you people?

I spent the entire day yesterday struggling with some code that almost worked during the first half hour I was writing it. It *almost* worked all day long. Towards the end of the day, I realized that what I was trying to do was a goofy thing to be trying to do.

I got up this morning; and decided that I should start over.

Forty-one minutes later: *BOOM*, done. Flawless.

I think you mean: TROLL POINTS !!

Listening to an episode of Podcasting 2.0 when it's Adam and Dave by themselves is like going to church.

The original article title is titled
"The dumbing down of programming"

( I saw this quote this morning in this thread on NASocial :
noagendasocial.com/web/statuse )

This quote is from an essay published in 1998, which is quite good. It's the punch line about 14 paragraphs in, describing someone's experience spelunking on a system, doing a linux install over the top of some flavor of NT. The quote has even more impact in context.

I remember it to this day; I have a hard copy somewhere, saved somewhere in an "important stuff" bin.

Unfortunately, it's from Salon.com. So, here's a link to archive.org instead:

I just tried to follow <AT>adam@noagendasocial.com here , meaning from this podcastindex.social account. There isn't any way from the UI to accomplish this, if I am also logged in at noagendasocial.com as well as here.

I end up over at that site if I try to click on a link to his profile over here, looking for the "remote follow" button or its equivalent.

However, I found if I just dropped a "web/" between the site url and the @username@somewhere.else value, it did want I wanted:

I am presuming that I will need read/write API keys in order to remove this bogus item from the index?

regarding my monster thread: podcastindex.social/web/@IceCu

I figured out how to use the developer_search page at: api.podcastindex.org/developer to get my fake podcast and feed listed on the live podcastindex.org . Yay! I do not see where this is documented; I simply stumbled upon it. And I needed to register as a developer before I found it, so I still think that it is not possible for a new podcaster (non-programmer) to simply submit their feed to the index, unless via a host service
