The Genius

I think I'm a genius and I'm going to tell you why. I'm been having some pretty annoying problems with my recent comments widget and I rely on that quite a bit to check if any of you guys were silly enough ... urrmmm, I mean nice enough (LOL) to leave me a comment or two.

But the past two days, it has been working intermittently and yesterday it completely stopped working altogether. Now, I know I could easily just scroll down to the post and see if there are any comments waiting for my attention but sometimes I do get comments for some really long ago post and I just simply hate it when I don't notice the comment and fail to answer it.

I don't want you guys thinking I'm some macho, handsome, quirky, arrogant and stuck up little spaceman now do I? LOL! I always make it a point to reply all my comments individually because I believe if you took the trouble to read through my painstakingly horrible postings, then it's only fair to reply all your comments person to person. And that's why I rely on my recent comment widget extensively for this purpose.

So when it went down completely yesterday, I scoured the internet looking for replacements or alternative widgets for it and while I found a few that worked, they just weren't of the same format that I was used too. I'm a creature of habit so I stick to things that I'm familiar with. After almost going all round the world, web wise that is, I had no choice but to use one that I didn't particularly like.

I still wasn't satisfied and did another check around the world. Gee, it's great to be able to go around the world again ... LOL! And that's when I found a site, I can't remember the name though that said I could host the recent comments code myself as all the ones in the market now had problems with their domain and that's why the comments widget failed to work.

Now, I know nothing about hosting codes on external domains but with nothing to lose, I followed the instructions as best as I could and managed to host the coding on my Google pages site and presto my recent comments are back up and running again :D See I told you I was a genius, well, for someone with hardly any knowledge in doing stuff like this, this makes me a genius la! LOL!
