Hello future Dr. Frank. Was this what you were looking for?

The comments have been broken on this blog for some time now, and I find it really inhibits my posting. Posting mainly happens when I have some lengthy comment to make on something, or when I want to post something here so that I can link to it from facebook or twitter where people can comment.

That is fine really, but I wonder if I'll still think it's fine in a year or so when I want to find a link or some other thing I vaguely remember from the past year. I use the search box here all the time to refresh my memory on things like that. It's kind of the timeline of your life, when you've posted a lot. Now, it's still there but there are a lot of gaps.

(And don't tell me facebook is just as good. You don't tend to write very well in the little box, first off, plus have you ever tried to locate a specific "status update" you remember typing from two years ago on there? Pretty difficult.)

So yesterday, I did this kind of throwaway comment on twitter to the effect that I never realize how grandiose my plans are till I've realized they're all set to fail. I guess a lot of people liked it, for some reason, because it "blew up" slightly. So I was thinking, wow, that's my first ever successful twitter aphorism, maybe I'll want to remember what it was a few years down the road, and who knows if you can search twitter for stuff like that or even if so if I'll be able to figure out how to do it.

So I'm posting it here:
