Diablo 3 Meme – A Comedy of Errors

Diablo III not only epic failed on launch when all the servers crashed but has had problems ever since. Blizzard had to issue and apology to angry fans and released a server-side patch fixing over 30 bugs just a few days ago. Aside from fixing bugs it also nerfed the abilities of some characters classes. Recently Blizzard announced that the release of the real money auction house, originally expected May 22nd, then pushed back to the 29th, has been delayed indefinitely in order to fix errors in the system before the release.

Flattr integration with WordPress/Comicpress.

You already know how awesome I think Flattr is, especially for webcomics. Unfortunately it’s still a little clunky to integrate, preventing many people who want to adopt it from doing so.

It is easy to add a Flattr button to a single blog post, but if you have a large website it becomes a chore. If, like me, you are using WordPress the solution seems simple: use the Flatter Plugin. This not only adds the Flattr button to your posts but submits new posts to Flattr when you publish them. Alas, whilst I’m sure it is an excellent solution for many people, it didn’t work for me.

In the Plugin Debug I discover my problem: ‘No cURL extension found.’ Bugger. As tech savvy as I am this is not something I can fix. Fortunately I’ve figured out a couple of workarounds. These ought to work even if you have a different error.
