If by genius I mean, "one who foolishly tries to update a website without verified backup and than manages to piece the damn thing together again". The fact that this thing looks almost exactly like it used to took some database tango on a truly impressive scale. Some of the posts are out of order, some comments were lost, and there are some broken images on old posts that I haven't been able to fix yet. In memorial of all those broken images, above is one of my favorites. It makes me lol.
Clever right? Anyways, what happened here? Short answer, I'm an idiot. Always back up your shit, and if you think you've already backed it up GO EFFING CHECK. I have a database full of the content I've created up to now, but I can't figure out how to link it up with this Drupal installation. Well, this website was kind of an experiment anyways.
A horrible thing has happened recently - I've kind of lost my engagement in the single player game. This is bollocks and cannot stand. I half blame work - this is practically the first time I've worked a full time job ever. Say what you will about bartending and waiting tables (and I can... at length), you can definitely make enough to live on working only part time. 8 hours is a lot of hours, folks. A good deal of the time when I get home all I feel good for is watching teevee and mooking around the internet. Another factor is the bullshit depression, of course.
One of the most terrifying things for depressed folks is asking for help. There’s a funny thing about depression, it tends to convince you that you’re somehow an incomplete person. I don’t know how it applies to other people so this post will probably be pretty personal, but if it helps someone that is what I’m here for.
