Another Tuesday, another rant. This is a very special Tuesday Rant because my hands are frozen from the cold (office heating here in Brussels is not working great today). So I'm typing this with heavy gloves while sipping hot lemon vodka from a flask. Excuse the occasional slip as the cold and the vodka fight it out for control of the old grey matter.

Gazooks! Wikidot still has some strange quirks of language, thanks to its Polish heritage, and this blog thread is dedicated to those. Please help us improve prompts, error messages, labels and so on by reporting them to this thread: our dev team (in this case actually me, fortified with espresso omelettes) will zap the offending texts.

Occasionally I use this blog to explain simple Wikidot tricks I've learned. Here is one that just proved useful. On this blog, the main page was showing footnotes mixed with the story summaries. There are a few ways to fix this (like, don't use footnotes in the first paragraph, fool!) but the proper solution is some per-page CSS styling on that list page to hide the footnotes.

In many parts of the world, especially those with powerful Coca-Cola franchises1, families are starting to bring dead trees into their homes, hunt for wild turkeys, and mentally prepare for that dreadful day when the whole family sits down together, exchanges presents, and pretends to like each other.
