Oh S2, I've missed you. - Spirit — LiveJournal
Oh S2, I've missed you.
My journal was breaking when certain communities would post. More accurately, a self written function used to produce my spiffy links would not terminate because it was badly written. :P So I found someone else's function and used it instead. Very similarly written, which makes me happy...amused that old me never realized the terrible condition that would cause my old function to fail. Anyways. Problem fixed. While I was there, I even fixed one other minor display error. When I first setup my LJ, the idea of having a 24" monitor was...absurd. =)

So, today, for the first time in god knows how long...I fiddled with my LJ layout. I miss S2, or more accurately, I miss the problem solving part of coding. Even if in the scheme of things, this was a tiny thing, it felt nice. I even got to use the coders, 'enh, that's good enough' clause - I realized that it's been long enough that they've changed a lot of the linkbar stuff (the buttons that let you edit, track, etc. Maybe just text links on your layout, who knows) and I'm not sure if the hacked function I have properly lets all the new stuff work. But honestly, you know how often I use those? Yeah. That's what I thought too.

It was a pleasant way to waste an hour. Maybe 2. :) Very nostalgic.

I'm finding myself doing things like that, too, as of late. I spent a very pleasant couple of hours the other day just fritzing around in Photoshop and playing with making icons. I remembered how much I used to enjoy doing that and wondered why I just completely stopped. I even played with my personal website a bit, something I haven't done in over 3 years.

Nostalgia can be a very good thing :)
