Despite the fact that this blog’s overall popularity hasn’t been growing much recently (for obvious reasons since I haven’t been posting much), one thing that does continue to increase is the spam comments.
But I just got one that’s more than a little ironic; a spam comment that starts off with “Do you have a spam problem on this site?”
If I lose track of time, it’s most likely because I was reading a website with huge numbers of pages all linked, which of course any wiki is a great example of. TV Tropes is probably the
worst best most time-consuming, but it can also happen with Wikipedia or other reference sites, or on any fandom wiki (of which TFwiki is by far the best in both completeness and style).
Basically, if there’s a subject I’m interested in and a ton of links, this can happen:
(xkcd also did one about TV Tropes, but I can’t remember its title.)
And more often then not, I’m there until I have an external reason to leave; not because I’m “done”.
It’s not entirely a bad thing since I’ve certainly learned things that I’ve been able to apply from some of those sites, but there are definitely times when I just look at a clock and wish I hadn’t spent so long there.

It’s 96 degrees Fahrenheit (over 35 Celsius) right now, with a “feels like” heat index of 107.
I’m also pretty sure it’s been over 90 every day this month.
I’m having trouble getting anything done. My brain just does not function properly in this kind of heat.
