boring; also: tags
Okay, so I can manually add a ?skip= at the end of a tag URL to see the preceding entries. [wisdomeagle
is not on the list of people who fail at helping me with tags.] Which is incovenient, but I'm more sad about the impaired accessibility for everyone else, even though I'm using tags primarily for my own searching convenience.
And I learned that the white bullets next to the tags (in tag management
) fill up with blue like thermometers as you increase the number of entries tagged with that tag. It seems to hit full ~30, however, which confuses me.
I really dislike the way the entries seem to all blur together on the S1 tags page and wish there was a way I could design an S2 layout just for the tags display. (I'm not really keen to recreate my current layout in S2.)
I do really like the rename feature. An improvement over the Memories feature wherein you have to manually retag every single entry if you want to change a label. Love especially 'cause I keep tweaking my system, and the rename function makes that so
easy and painless. Though sadly, it doesn't redirect if you URL to a no-longer-existing tag.
Plus it displays the entries in order of posting, which I wish Memories did (as opposed to "order in which the entries were added, and by added we also mean edited" -- though I suppose it's easier since it's just within your own journal rather than a multiplicity of journals.)
[P.S. ♥ that Semagic breaks your tags down by first letter, so your main menu isn't so unwieldy.]
It was nice
today. Much less windy than yesterday. And yeah, I honestly liked the cold. *is freak; knows and revels in it*
Nancy was back. Her daughters (Nicole, age 4 and 26 pounds; and Michelle, age 9) learned how to downhill ski in 6 hours one day over the vacation last week.
Nancy's giving the NOM talk next Wednesday afternoon, so Eric and I have been enlisted to possibly babysit Nicole. I made a crack about giving Eric an impressionable young child and he said that's why she was asking when we were both there. He is so
excited about this, though; talking about getting coloring books and everything. Tres cute. Alyssa's gonna be babysitting that day, too, but in the morning (one of Max's doc students is presenting her dissertation, I think).

I thought about going to
Tue., Feb. 28-"When There Are No Good Choices: Lyndon Johnson and the Vietnam/Great Society Connection." (American Academy of Arts and Sciences) Francis M. Bator, emeritus, KSG. Introduction by Ernest R. May, Harvard University. The House of the Academy, 5:15 p.m. Reception to follow.
but really I just wanted to go home. So I did.trijinx
called me from a concert to inform me that the New Pornographers' YAMAHA keyboard still says YAAA :D
I never did talk about Monday's new staff orientation. It included a 4-segment video (The Harvard Legend, You Made A Great Decision, An Insider's Tour, The Harvard Culture). Yeah, good times.
In FY04 they hired 2,274 people, out of 119,279 -- a 2% acceptance rate, far less than the college itself. It occurred to me later to wonder if this included faculty hiring 'cause obviously they're gonna have a bajillion faculty apps. I'm assuming they meant staff, though.
No real amusing anecdotes to speak of.
