Due to my lack of interest in blogging, my website will cease to be bloggy. It will, however, become more tweetish? Harnessing the trendy power of Twitter (with just a hint of magic…and cheese…), my posts will just be status update thingies. I do reserve the right to randomly post an actual post should the mood strike me, but as we’ve seen over the past few months, I’m not that moody.

While 4 straignt days of activity here at mimicvii.com had some people worried that Hell was on the verge of an Ice Age, luckily the weekend stepped in, did it’s part, and put a stop to that non-sense. Those of me that actually do happen to visit this site should make a note that weekends are likely to be dead around here. Very similar to the way this place is durring the other, normal dead times.
On another, almost related note…now that I’ve fixed a css issue on this site, I am finally able to make posts that are shorter in length than the random images I insert in every post, without it causing odd display issues. As such, expect more useless, short posts! Except on weekends.

So I’m back from the MMO dead. Luckily, only a couple months of my life lost on this one.
As is customary, my website tends to suffer the most from these distractions, because why would I want to waste time here when I could be grinding for phat loots?! Unfortunately for Warhammer Online, the loots were lacking phat and the grinding kicked in way too soon. Back to farming my Xbox for achievements…
Maybe a post or two thrown in here just to keep the place on it’s toes. Speaking of toes, if this place has them, would they be webbed? [Badoom-cha] Thank you, I’ll be here all week, try the veal.
As the previous post no doubt indicates, I’m having a hard time coming up with something worth a damn to comment on. As such, I’m forced to do something somewhat drastic. Be prepared to endure a little something about me.
But not here, in this post, that would suck for everyone. The info about me can be found in the frequently overlooked About page. Note that the term frequently overlooked is a relative term. A frequent overlooked page on a normal site means it’s at least seen occasionally. A frequently overlooked page on a site that is itself frequently overlooked means the frequently overlooked page has probably never before been seen by human eyes.
In the event any of the 10′s of people who visit this site might have accidentally stumbled into that section before, and lived, it has actually been overhauled a bit. Hold onto your potatoes because it now contains:
- The complete history of mimicvii.com – From it’s humble beginnings to it’s humble, now, times.
- A blurb or two about real life™ me – As opposed to something about the super cool, interweb version of me.
- An explanation for what the hell a mimicvii is – Finally, one of life’s great mysteries explained!
After a couple of days fighting with the Fotobook plugin for WordPress, I am finally victorious. As it is now my vanquished foe, it is required to do anything I wish. Unfortunately, all it seems willing to do is fetch my Facebook photos, but it does do a well enough job of that.
The fighting was based upon the fact that the 3.1 version just wouldn’t work for me. I dug through the code, reset/re-installed the plugin, tried a little voodoo, nothing worked. As I was about to give up, I decided to give an older revision a try. Luckily, the 3.0.7 version appears to work flawlessly.
The whole reason I even bothered with any of this is because the Fotobook plugin allows me to easily import photos from my Facebook albums directly into this site. As such, I have now replaced the old gallery I was using with this one, which can be accessed through the Photos page.
