Damn You, Evil Button.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 5:06 pm

I again tangled ass with Mr. Template, trying to add a farookin’ button to the left side of the site. When I was done, the text above the button didn’t come out the way I wanted it to, the button itself looked like ca ca, and clicking it sent you nowhere.

After checking the Jimbo Code and not being able to find the error, I successfully deleted my noodling, rather than risk a hypertensive crisis. This time, I saved my work and sent it to Craig (whithout whom I would still be bogged down in BlogSpot), requesting that he “mark my paper” and tell me where I screwed up.

In return, I promised to talk to him about Business Law and Promissory Estoppel until his hair hurt.

So, that makes it:
The Button – 2
Jimbo – 0

The Fat Lady has not yet sung.


  1. I can’t wait to see this infamous button. My nails are worn down to nubs here. Will it at least set off a spectacular fireworks display? :-p

  2. Either that, or it will contain a virus that will render anyone clicking it sterile.

  3. You should have my email already, but I couldn’t find any errors on your paper.

    The problem was with the tool, not the wielder of the tool.

    Now, I’m going to pack my bags, sell my house and move to New Jersey, since you have already offered me a job as your ass-kicker.

    I accept.

    Then, when I get there, we can talk at some length about Promissory Estoppel. ­čśÇ

    Damn buggy code!

  5. Let’s all get together & talk about something mo’ funner than Promissory Estoppel:

    The Rule Against Perpetuities.

    Guaranteed to glaze your eyes over in less than 5 seconds….or your money back.

  6. Pssst. Heard The New Curse Word? Pass It On

    John Shabe picked up a new “neo-curse” at the Parkway Rest Stop: “Farookin’.” I like it. I like it a lot. Farookin’ Mussina….
