Yes, things are still hosed.

The person who hired the person to do the update has been sacked. The person hired to replace the person hired to do the update has also been sacked. The person who sacked the person who hired the original person to do the update has also been sacked.

A wholly new person has been hired to do the update.

The creator of this post wishes you to know that he, too, has been sacked.

And the comments still don't work.

Except that they do, for some people.

Which is really very odd.

Those of you for whom the comments work - you're sacked.

That is all. Do have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Just checking to see if I wasa sacked, too.

Oops.

Yer sacked, rehired, just so I can sack you again!

Barb briefed on November 23, 2006 10:36 AM

Lessee - I was sacked, because I can comment. So now I can be rehired for future sacking, I guess ;-)
heh

Oh, boy. First we have bad puns about "Meuse Argonne," and now people are being sacked.

What's next, Ralph the Wonder Llama and the tremendous molars of Sven Donovan, Swedish-Kansan dentist?

...Come to think of it, that's why Rummy got fired! It's all John's fault!!

On a more serious note, John, (for debugging purposes) when I clicked "Preview" the window was headed by your blog blurb in huge letters; probably H1 text. My entery was fine, but when I clicked "Post" MT nattered that I hadn't entered a name or email address, and to click on a link to return to my entry. Which was gone.

All was not lost: I just started clicking the "back" button and returned to whence I had come. This time, NO preview! Heh.

At the risk of suggesting the obvious, have you tried getting the original MT 3.33 comment template from Six Apart's website, and testing that?

"Sacked".....like men running at me, knocking me down and falling on top of me? OK, I'm in. Just make sure there's something soft and comfy for me to fall on.

I’m going to make like Rummy and preemptively resign – so, you can’t sack me.

I'll have you know I DON'T appreciate you sacking all those blokes, Sir. Like most sacked workers, they will now come out to Oregon to live, and I will have to support them while they try to take my guns away.

The operative rule here is that sacked Conservatives don't stay sacked long, but a sacked Liberal is quite likely to stay sacked at least until their unemployment compensation runs out, and Oregon extends it forever, it seems.

So, PLEASE, if you're going to continue on this sacking bender you're on, please sack only the conservatives, and if you have to sack a liberal, make sure that their pink slip packet includes a map to Massachusetts, which, if I read my blogs correctly, is a hopeless case already.

Geez! Rivrdog, what did I ever do to you?

John of Argghhh! briefed on November 25, 2006 06:34 AM

Geez! Rivrdog, what did I ever do to you?

Lived far enough away to be safe, Maggie!

Maggie briefed on November 25, 2006 07:18 AM

What?

John of Argghhh! briefed on November 25, 2006 07:24 AM

Rivrdog lives in Oregon. I doubt he really had you personally in mind, but when you asked your question, that's the first thing that popped into my mind - he picked on Massachusetts because it's a solidly blue state far away from Oregon.

Sigh. This has officially taken too much effort!

8^)

Maggie briefed on November 25, 2006 02:41 PM

Well that's completely impossible. How could he have not had me in mind? I am the center of my universe. Of course he was thinking of me.

Rivrdog briefed on November 25, 2006 06:45 PM

Email me a photo, Maggie. I usually have room for someone at the center of MY universe, since those arriving to share it with me don't usually stay long....except Die Frau, and she figgered me out in 1975....BTW, I have lived in MA, spent three years in Chicopee Falls, 1969-72, while flying B52s out of Westover AFB there. The state wasn't quite as FUBAR then, primarily because it was run out of the Archdiocese of Boston and the HQ offices of the big insurance conglomerates, and Teddy was only a shavetail asshole then (Chappaquiddick happened while I was there, and I did notice how the whole thing, especially the inquest report, was sealed and remains so to this day).

All you need to do is an image search on Google for "BostonMaggie".......after reading your blog, I think you will approve of the pose!
