Wiggy Code...

     Now, I don't know if it shows up on your end or not, but in my rather cluttered "About Me" section, there's a little phrase saying "Code corrupted.  Insert fresh copy." 

     Yesterday, I was having a bit of an issue with my StatCounter, and it stopped keeping track of hits to this journal.  And, considering I was muddling around in the HTML of the section when it went goofy, I figured, Hey!  I screwed something up.  Neato.

    So, I went and got some new code to replace the screwy old stale code I had in there, and now, for some dumb reason, though it's still keeping track of visitors, it keeps telling me to install a fresh copy of the code --which I've done probably a dozen times to no avail.  In other words, it's working fine.  However, it doesn't think it's working fine.  In other, other words, it's got self-confidence issues, and I've got to figure out a way of explaining to this unhappy little slice of HTML gibberish that everything's fine, everyone likes it, and it's doing a fine job.  There, there, little gibberish.  You're doing a fine job, and --gosh darn it!-- everybody likes you.

     Yep.  Leave it to me to insert a piece of code with a nearly dysfunctional and crippling sense of self-worth.  

     Oh well...  It's Friday, and I'm not all that ambitious to remedy the issue.  So, if you'd like, take a moment to consider the phrase "Code corrupted.  Insert fresh copy," and create whatever joke you please from there.  Just make sure to leave your funny stuff (or links to your funny stuff) in the comments. 



  1. I'd try deleting the code entirely, then clearing your cache and rebooting before trying to reinstall it. Why would than make any difference? I have no idea, but with AOL the answer always is, "when in doubt, clear your cache."

  2. Oh, and instead of just trying to reinstall the same code, try making a change in the counter, like the size, or the colour, or something, so statcounter has to actually generate fresh code.

  3. "Code corrupted.  Insert fresh copy," .... Yes, I see it - I hate when that happens ... KNOW WHAT I'M SAYIN' ?


  4. Oh, No! Dan! You do not want me to go there!!!  Oh.. no.. you .. don't! hee


  5. I dunno - the "Code corrupted.  Insert fresh copy."  phrase sort of fits with the whole ambience of your blog, don't you think? (LOL!)
