Yesterday, the WordPress theme dudes did some “minor” tweaking to the CSS of Vigilance by The Theme Foundry, a free theme that precisely a bajillion WordPress bloggers use (including myself). Unfortunately, one of the tweaks included adding a 1px grey border to all our photos which, for those of us who blog like we’re an overzealous nerdaurus and post photos based on the assumption that our blog is 600px wide, janked the crap out of the one blessed thing that keeps us from just ending it all after fielding one too many so what do you really want to do’s from losers and strangers after copping to our less than stellar day jobs. While I felt pretty bad for Lance, a theme dude who got caught in Bitchfest 3000 that instantly erupted in the forums following the changes, I also wanted to sucker punch someone (anyone!) for making me lose my blog boner for over 2 hours.
But by the late afternoon (ie after Lance and his team had enough of our blogging gang bang), they kindly removed the border and my very public love affair with the internet was back on. Winz for everyone!
