Sometimes people ask me how I decide what to write each night, where I get my ideas, and generally how I achieve all this bloggery goodness.
Okay, no one asks me that. But if they did, I’d tell them that it’s magic and to quit bothering me. I’m far too busy to answer dumbass questions like that.
However, I will gladly explain my process for fixing the HTML and CSS coding that comprises the backbone of the blog. I have a very precise series of steps I follow when something breaks.
1. I swear. Loudly and vulgarly. Occasionally with accompanying hand gestures. This step has yet to actually fix anything, but I feel that it’s a vital piece of the process nonetheless.
3. Leigh whips out the katana, and let me tell you, she does more than threaten the problem with it. 99 percent of the time the problem admits defeat at the first glimpse of my wife with a sword. For those truly tenacious problems I proceed to step four, my secret weapon.
So there you have it. That’s how I go about fixing coding problems on the blog. Feel free to use my four step problem-solving process the next time you find yourself in a bind. I use it for coding, but I’m sure you could apply this to everyday problems as well. Cashier refusing to accept your coupon? I’m sure a ninja star would appropriately persuade him. Get caught speeding? Even cops are intimidated by the katana. Mugger threatening to steal your valuables? He’ll poop his pants when a ninja masked Ellie comes charging down that dark alleyway.
P.S. I can hear the collective “I want my own ninja mask!” from all you readers. Well, here’s a very good how-to video. Just remember, a ninja mask is a very big responsibility. Use it wisely.
