nunquam securus via

For months, maybe longer, starts as a joke, but I used the above phrase as the Latin version of the expression, a family motto if there ever was one, “Never the easy way.” Messing around with Google Translate, though, I came up with a simpler expression, which, looking at it, might’ve better. The first is really a raw translation as “Never Easy Way,” whereas the following is more likely, “Never the easy way.”

Should be on a family crest, no?

numquam facilis via

We all know people who can never, ever take the easy route.

Unsure, but I’m guessing it’s close enough to count.

“In formal language theory and computer programming, string concatenation is the operation of joining character strings end-to-end. For example, the concatenation of “snow” and “ball” is “snowball”. In some but not all formalisations of concatenation theory, also called string theory, string concatenation is a primitive notion.” via Wikipedia, retrieved recently.

One piece of software I like? Little WordPress add-on called Thesis — simply put? A visually stunning, architectural masterpiece of web CMS: sporty, high-performance delivery engine. The problem? Currently, I use a subsidiary skin with it. So it rolled out an update, which then had to be updated inline along with the skin, and both went from 0.x to 0.x1 in a 12-hour period, or so it seemed. 0.9 to 0.91 to 0.93 in under 24 hours? What I adore is a responsive update from the builder; quick turn-around on fixes.

That’s two updates twice across a half-dozen weblog motors. Groan.

I’m trimming my material down to two outlets. Two URLs.
