Looking into the past

I’m poking through WordPress.com again, as I’m currently engaged in a trial period for working at Automattic. This gives me some motivation to be more familiar with the things I’d be working on, after all.

It’s very strange reading this blog, which I last updated 9 years and one month ago… I think mostly in parallel with my LiveJournal, at the time. This dates me a bit.

What might be strangest about the experience is the reminder that I’mĀ old enough now that I can look at content I wrote 10 years ago and realize that I’m fundamentally the same person, without a huge change. The me who wrote these blog entries couldn’t say that.

World of Warcraft addons

I likes me the addons. In fact, elevating me to new heights of geekiness, I writes me the addons. Not that you could tell from my journal, since I’ve been very, very quiet about it here. In fact, addon writing has received only one mention ever.

I currently have four addons out there:

FuBar – QuestsFu
A quest tracker plugin for FuBar, which is a Titan Panel alternative (a little bar on your screen for things to show info on).
FuBar – ToFu
A flight time tracker for FuBar. Sadly neglected currently. Mainly written for the silly name.
FuBar – KungFu
A skills tracker for FuBar.
Remembers things about your friends, so you still have some idea who they are when they’re offline. Also allows you to make notes.

A side-effect of all this is that most of the addons I use I get from svn.wowace.com. So part of my daily playing routine is to run “svn update *” in my addons directory to get everything up to the latest version. Very convenient.

Now you know something of what has taken up my time.


Approving category suggestions for the Celebrities category makes me feel dirty.

(We now have a Paris Hilton category. This will be a trainwreck of epic proportions.)
