This release is a complete rewrite, adding the ‘Remove’ alias to the ‘Add’, ‘Edit’ and ‘Rebuild’ aliases that are included.  Also, there is no need to rebuild the entire alias cache after an add or remove through the supplied aliases, as only what’s necessary is performed.

If you wish to upgrade to this version, please note that I have renamed the ‘Refresh’ parameters and aliases to ‘Rebuild’ in an attempt to lessen the confusion as to what is performed.

Due to all the recent hype about this stuff, and my failed attempts at getting the published scripts to work, I decided to have a shot at scripting something similar myself.

I take no responsibility whatsoever for the ideas, let me assure you—just the code used to get the job done. 🙂

Please let me know what you think.

Oh, it tinkles.

Here’s something for you all to remember: when you’re swinging a computer monitor around over your head, pay more attention to your light fittings or you’ll have a mass of electircal wiring hanging from your ceiling and shards of glass all over the place, including your desk, your bedside table, your floor, your chair and your bed.

I loathe them.

Longings, emotions, feelings, hopes, dreams, expectations, ideals, optimism, pain, confusion, hatred, envy, lust… God knows why they exist—you can live a perfectly good life without them.

Without them all. But alas, no—you can always find a subset of these rearing their ugly heads at any one point in time.

Those who know me well know that my past school years are a taboo subject.  Here’s another item to add to your list.

One down, n to go.

Well, one issue on my mind has been resolved now and my head already feels lighter—I’m no longer going to give so much of a flying duck about other people’s expectations of me. More »

Yeah, about that.

Luckily, I’ve tread carefully enough not to position myself for another potential downfall, and I feel good knowing that.  Nevertheless though, I can safely say that the next month or so is going to be an emotionally taxing time for me.  Not because I want it to, I hope that’s obvious—but because pensiveness is a pastime in which I excel.

I’ve come home from a shift with Kateena tonight and I’m feeling so damn spectacularly great.  I honestly can’t remember the last time I felt this good—it would have to be three months ago at the very least? More »

Hippy bumfday to me.

Today was a functional day indeed.  My noisily quarrelsome family inadvertently woke me up at 8 this morning, so I got up, got dressed, stole the car and went into the city thinking, hey, it’s my birthday so I’m gonna treat myself to a DVD burner. More »

No more of that.

I’ve finally come to the realisation that I’m putting myself through something that quite frankly I shouldn’t be.  I appreciate people’s tactfulness very much, but when I ask for honesty I really want honesty with as little tact attached as possible. More »
