Untitled (for now)

Written by Raymond Santos Estrella on Tuesday, 17 December 2013. Posted in 2013

Here I am again exhibiting the quintessential trait of being an introvert: overthinking. If there were a contest for this kind of behavior, I’d certainly be in the running by now—if not outright winning first place by a landslide.

This piece is actually quite overdue and may be three something years in the making. I could have written all this down maybe a few months ago but then it wouldn’t be the same words or the same feeling or there would be a different glass of scotch behind these thoughts. In any case, it’s come to the point where I can’t do anything but put this down into tangible words and be done with it. Not, of course, just for the heck of it, but rather to hopefully free myself from the heaviness of it all. The years and years of keeping it all in do they take their toll and at least for this one thing, I’d like to just leave it behind once and for all. I do hope you’ll indulge me this one rare time.

I’m not too sure about my presentation but maybe I’ll come back to this and clear it up with a better presentation if it comes to me.

Or how to turn a complicated thing simple

HTML redirection, mod_rewrite, and .htaccess

Last night, after hitting my reading quota and while trying to fall asleep, I was taking a deeper look into the access logs of this site and Corpus Juris and found some really strange access entries. It seems that because of the shared hosting environment of the two websites, there was some erroneous cross hits occuring.

The Dream

Dream seashore

I dreamt of her last night. Or this morning. Whatever. I fell asleep at around 5am after exceeding the day’s reading quota. I woke up around 10:30am or thereabouts, stretched and groaned, booted up the PC, and then began writing this.
