What's currently baffling the living fuck out of me are pings and more specifically trackback. I stumbled across the term on a few blogs and after looking around found a pretty basic summary on Wikipedia. It seems pretty straight forward, right? Wrong. Since I didn't want to pay hundreds of dollars for some high end blogging software, I searched around until I found some bare bones program that would accomplish the job that the creators put out. I took a look at the instructions and my head exploded almost immediately. I could wring more coherance out of this if it were in freaking german or backwards piglatin.
I think what it finally comes down to is you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Back in the day I could proably struggle and research and puzzle this sort of thing out but at this point, just looking at it gives me a headache. Whatever happened to the good old days where the most complex thing you had to master was figuring out all the freaking control codes for emacs?
Anyone out there who can give me a hand and translate?
