Remember the rant about people posting stupid crap? Well, someone posted some willfully stupid crap this time - after someone pointed out correctly that the included plugin already had the needed functionality and even showed how to do it, some jackass said "Or you could use curl" and proceeded to include a short bit of a script that wouldn't do nearly as much as the original plugin nor nearly as well.
That's like someone saying they tried rowing their speedboat across the river, but the current was too strong. So some kind soul points out that they've got a speedboat and shows them how to use it.
And then some idiot comes along with a log and a paddle and says "Or, you could take this here log, it's a beaut, and yer could paddle yerself across yon' river wif'out much trouble at all".
OR YOU COULD USE YOUR DAMN SPEEDBOAT! *slap*
I was good, though, in my reply I only called it pointless and silly, and I didn't make comments about his breeding or his hygiene or anything.
I was tempted, though.
I think I must've just pissed out a gallon or so. Wow, I feel empty all of a sudden.
*takes a drink of water*
...I'll play a round of Mechwarrior IV tonight, maybe some instant action, or something. I just feel like blowing something up and it's the only reasonably destructive sort of game I've got around right now.
Must resist the lure of Black and White... (no, it's not particularly destructive, but it IS supposed to be one of the greatest games ever.)
...I do so love chrysanthemum tea. I just wish it wasn't so bloody sweet. Still... warm, yummy goodness. Nice on a sore throat and general sickness.
