Who doesn’t like “???” being given as the reason for a post being removed from a forum. Last.fm pushed out a feature that basically broke everything for many people – Spotify to Last.fm integration stopped working.
After weeks of it still not working, the help forum was still of no help because there was no workaround for the broken beta feature. Comments to that effect got removed by the moderators:
I’m not sure whether the author is truly confused, or if this is meant to be just a blatant attempt at grabbing membership numbers for their forums. I won’t dignify them with a name or URL, but here’s a “personal message” I received through the last.fm messaging system with their name elided:
You are invited to join ……., a Gothic & Metal online community aimed at making it easier for like minded people to meet and get to know each other.
I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.
Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried php, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on emacs org-mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is org-mode and hugo.
