k. i. s. s.

I've watched The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and it was interesting to see the differences between the book and the movie. Many things were handled better in the movie (as I thought they would be), but I do wonder how many of them were changed because the screenwriter and director realized that there was room for improvement, and how many were simply because there wasn't enough time to follow what was in the book.

Of course, there will be spoilers. Press "show" to go further.


In tech geek news, I was dissatisfied with the "Recent Posts" links over there on the right, since I wanted it to show only the real posts, and not the ones which are merely plugs for new stuff over at utownwriting.com. So, I poked around, and found some PHP code that would do the job, placed in a "widget."

I've ignored widgets until now, but it turns out they're ways to customize the blocks of links over there on the right. Until now, I've done that manually, like adding the list of characters. And the new widget worked fine, but it turns out that once you enable widgets, all the stuff you coded manually gets wiped out. So, I had to scramble to recreate the "Characters" listing as a widget.

But now I can't remember if there was anything else over there. Characters, recent posts, categories, meta. I think that was everything...
