It’s official: technology definitely hates me. Proof #1: the commenting situation still persists [read; sorry for a lack of comments on your posts; they just don’t get through an apparently aren’t found in spam folders either – consider me very frustrated]. #2: the actual second post planned for this week, meant to go online on Thursday: didn’t happen thanks to – right, technology. #3: this post. Yes, you’re reading this so where’s the problem, you ask? The fact that I’d originally saved a half-finished post with many links a few days ago already and when I opened the draft tonight they were gone. Thanks for nothing, WordPress. Anyway, I remembered most of the posts and included them but for some others I’ll have to consult my brain once again and include them in the next Good good links.
