Annette Funicello and BGG

Filed under: Commentary — admin @ 14:48

Every once in a while the Geek has a reference to something quite funny. Take a look at this. A short excerpt or two:

There was talk at the Triple R Ranch, of course; the rumor was that if you were around when Annette had her bathing suit on, you might be lucky enough to see her secret passage. That was the game, anyway.

and

. . . swordfish happen to be one of the very few species with the ability to heat “selected body parts” above the temperature of the surrounding water. Thus, the question “Does Annette like swordfish?” takes on a whole new meaning in the game . . .

Man, there’s nothing innocent anymore :-)

Guess What I Found.

Filed under: Commentary — admin @ 08:27

In the directory wp-includes/js/tinymce/themes/advanced/images: a substantial pile of files with all kinds of lovely links, pornographic references, and other keywords.

the parent directory appears to be what WordPress uses to direct editing themes, the forms of posts, and so forth. It looks like someone placed this data in my directory structure. Once removed, I am able to see the admin pages for the plugins again.

I’m still at a loss to understand how it was done, but at least it’s gone. Still looking for help kicking these pus-bags in the nether regions.

Wordpress Problem.

Filed under: Commentary — admin @ 09:50

Something is amiss with Wordpress, as if that’s news.

If you click on an individual post, the header will show something like this:

WordPress database error: [Unknown column 'option_description' in 'field list']
INSERT INTO wp_options (option_name, option_value, option_description, autoload) VALUES (’rss_fe9a8123b52219df4a6512241900c87c’, ”, ”, ‘yes’)

WordPress database error: [Unknown column 'option_description' in 'field list']
INSERT INTO wp_options (option_name, option_value, option_description, autoload) VALUES (’rss_fe9a8123b52219df4a6512241900c87c’, ‘YToyOntpOjA7czoxOiIwIjtpOjE7czoxMjoiL2Jsb2cvP3A9NDA0Ijt9′, ”, ‘yes’)

Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

Blog Technical Problems

Filed under: Commentary — admin @ 12:32

My ISP has been unable to make my blog work properly. I’m getting spammed like crazy, I’ve lost my calendar, my BGG game list, my spam filters, and my current theme.

So things are in transition. Hope to be back running again soon, but in the meanwhile I have a book to finish.

EDIT: A few things are back now. There are no explanations for any of this, but it should be possible to post things again.
