Geekdom

Friendly Is Not Enough

Presently stwirling (combination of swirling and twirling) my brain around Google’s new mobile friendly web page requirements. Awhile back the multi-hued behemoth let the world know that they were making a huge change to their search engine rankings. Pages that were not mobile friendly would be bumped down the search results in place of those sites that are mobile friendly. I am an advanced WordPress applicateur. I like my ‘things’ to line up, which is the extent of my design skill. It is hard to line things up when some slightly drunken server decides where things go depending on how wide the screen is. Arrrrgh.

Maddening Max

I have not seen the spectacle of motorized death that is Mad Max. I live near an urban highway so not sure that I need a fix of high speed carnage. When I had the chance to catch a movie last weekend. I chose to see Tomorrowland instead. What a wonderful movie that was. Robots, blasters, comedy, dystopia, utopia, parallel dimensions, everything a science fiction geek loves. I am not sure why people need to choose between the two movies. Watch them both.

I Went Phishing…

Well I am new to twitter. A friend tweeted  me a link to something I would be interested, I dutifully browsed there on my Nexus.  Next thing I knew everyone on my twitter list was being bombarded by spam about weight loss, scary blogs, and links to more phishing sites. Oops. I had fallen for the oldest new trick on the intertubes. My twitter account had become a spam spewing tweet fest. Many of my more alert tweeters let me know right away, and sorting it out was painful because the center of excellence I was working at blocks all social media. However the experience inspired my to get tethering up to speed on my nexus, create a phishing for spalmon pic, two giggley quotes, and one found piece of strangeness.

“the twats have stopped tweaking this twits tweets”

and

“I went phishing and caught some spalmon”
