Well that pissed me off.  WordPress did not inform me that changes made to a table and saved in one document would universally change the table in any other document, existing and saved separately.  Thus no table is reusable, if you update in save one day, yesterday’s table becomes that table.

Fuck You very Much WordPress, your update was ill thought out.  Thanks for not bothering to explain that my saved documents are not truly saved, that your blocks take precedent to my words in my own document.

I am fortunate that all my pages had not been updated already, thanks to my TBI making that a pain in the ass which is mentally exhausting, I had only done a few pages.  All of them exist of course as a word document on my PC, but WORDPRESS, it seems they value their widgets more than they value the words written on their pages. Thanks a lot WordPress, good fucking thing I did not redo all the fucking tables.  Some of the Data I have backups for, but back to the shitty text format it goes.

I find it offensive that a document I created, saved, and published;  could be edited after the fact by the way they designed permissions on their site.  It makes the table not re-usable, each day I would have to re-create the table from scratch, and name it for that day, and then save the table separately from the document.  In their quest for ease of use they forgot to think about the sanctity of what has already been done being protected.


Like most things these days, there is no contact point for the company, at all.  No way to tell them how offensive their table design is, or how it edited me without consent on other documents.  Once something is saved, and published, it ought no longer to be subject to global widget changes.

Fortunately I do not much trust the web, so I have my copies, in Word, on my personal PC.  When I am not so pissed off about this I will have to go back and redo those pages, in text, not tables.  To do it with their table is to have thousands of goddamn tables rather than 1 reusable one.  Stupid design.

Point of interest: Squirrel tests positive for bubonic plague in Colorado

“A squirrel in Colorado tested positive for the bubonic plague this weekend, the latest in an increase of reported plague activity in the state, according to KUSA. The squirrel was found in the town of Morrison, Jefferson County Public Health said in a news release. It’s the first case of the plague recorded in Jefferson County, according to the release. The bubonic plague is an infectious disease caused by a bacteria that is naturally occurring in Colorado, KUSA reported. It was responsible for the “Black Death,” which caused 50 million deaths in Europe during the 14th century, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment says there has been an increased amount of plague activity in the state and it was recently found in Broomfield, KUSA reported. Are humans at risk? The short answer is yes. It “can be contracted by humans and household animals if proper precautions are not taken,” the release said. Humans can get the plague if an infected animal or flea bites them or if an infected person coughs on them, according to Jefferson County Public Health.”–Miami Herald

Point of Interest

I see a lot on the news about how many tests have been performed, as if tests themselves are significant.  The fact that we had given 41 million tests is not relevant, how many were positive is.  Yes, you can use the number of tests given on any single day to determine what rate of positivity exists in the population.  You cannot use the overall number for anything except illustrating how much effort has been made.

A test given today and then an exposure tomorrow requires a new test.  Counting it as a negative when the virus is still extant in the community is pointless.  It is like coming in out of the rain, checking your raincoat for leaks, finding none, and going back into the rain.  You need to check the coat again afterwards to see if it still has no leaks.
