Recursive Cross-posting Spiral of Death…or Not

Sigh. I meant to get back to flogging the undead, undying pony that is The Stupid Novel today, but I got sucked into a WordPress to Twitter cross-post issue on my website and ended up spending most of the day debugging it. There is much pointy irony here in that I was able to upgrade several other peoples’ websites with a plugin that crashed on mine over and over again.

But after much code scouring and swearing, I fixed it. I think.

And I am, once again, seriously thinking about switching domain host providers.  The problem was not helped one bit by the server going down twice during my upgrade/debug/hacking efforts. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

Although, y’know, with LiveJournal now being able to cross-post to both Facebook and Twitter,  and the Twitter plugin I just hacked being able to cross-post tweets to WordPress, and WordPress cross-posting to LiveJournal, Twitter, and Facebook, there’s the chance of the universe imploding in a recursive cross-posting spiral of death.

Mwa ha ha haaa! Let the apocalypse begin!

Um, I may be a little loopy from staring at code all day…
