An update on Wavatars:
Yes, I know recent changes to Gravtar functionality (actually, a complete re-write from Ruby to PHP) has broken my Wavatars plugin. I haven’t found time to fix it yet. This is doubly annoying because WordPress 2.5 is coming out very soon, and it will have built-in support for Gravatars. I have no idea how my plugin will work with a system like that. My worry is that it won’t, or that my plugin will become an ugly hack that runs independent of the integrated system. I might need to make small changes, or I may need to re-write the blasted thing. I dunno.
I don’t really have time to spend on it, and now I’m facing a situation where I might fix the plugin only to have the whole thing become obsolete in a week. Or perhaps require a re-write. I could install the upcoming WordPress 2.5 release candidate and find out, but that would take more time I don’t have.
Anyway, all of this whining is here to you know that:
- Yes, I’m aware of the problem.
- No, I can’t fix it right now.
Several people have fixed my plugin themselves. Someone actually sent me a .diff this morning, which resolved the problem and also cleaned things up a bit. If I manage to get time I’ll update the plugin, but I can’t make any promises.
The plot of this game isn't just dumb, it's actively hostile to the player. This game hates you and thinks you are stupid.

For one of the most popular casual games in existence, Match 3 is actually really broken. Until one developer fixed it.
DM of the Rings
Both a celebration and an evisceration of tabletop roleplaying games, by twisting the Lord of the Rings films into a D&D game.
What is this silly word, why did some people get so irritated by it, and why did it fall out of use?
Push the Button!
