The title says it all really. I started out booting into the Windows 10 side of my machine in order to update Microsoft’s latest (my main OS is Linux Mint just so you know) and just started farting around with all sorts of things afterward–always a mistake on my part.
I ended up playing around with MS’s new-ish Edge browser with it’s new-ish extensions feature, loaded it up with my usual password manager and ad blocker then I went on a viewing binge just to see how this new-ish browser worked on my usual sites including the back end of my old blog here. That’s where the trouble began.
I had to update whatever plugins needed updating as I had gotten a bit behind of late but then, much against my usual better judgment, I got into screwing around with a couple of other themes losing the “Note to my readers” widget along the way. How I did that I have no idea. If you move a widget from the sidebar to the “Available widgets” column it’s not supposed to just disappear is it?
So I switched to Firefox, changed everything back sans the missing widget and wrote this short little post for no apparent reason. Oh yeah, I also had an SEO plugin that kept complaining about how lousy my posts were written with respects to search engine optimization plus it also kept telling me that I had to write this that way and move that this way and where’s the damn key word anyway?
So I removed it. I feel much better about myself already.
I told you it was just a short little post.
