Everlasting Vacation

A young secretary had just returned from her vacation and was telling her boss about the fun time she had. She then asked him for two weeks leave so that she could get married.

“But you just had two weeks off,” her boss protested. “Why didn’t you get married then?”

“What?!” she cried. “And ruin my vacation?”

    Just noticed that the ratings plugin is ONLY active on the weekly cartoon page, not any others.

      You are correct, sir!

      The rating plugins all tend to suck. I can’t seem to find one that I like, and this one is quickly getting on my nerves as well. Some are subscription based (read: “pay to use”), some are remote hosted, (read: “3rd party tracks my visitors”), some require short codes (read: “It’s gotta be in every %^&*ing post!”, some won’t show up on the front page (read: “Nobody knows it’s even there”), some use voodoo black magic to store the rating data (read: “I can’t trust it.”), some have lame formatting (read: “No customization), and all of them suffer from one or more of these issues (read: “FUCK!”)

      The one that I’m currently using requires a short code at the end of the post. I’m not going through the hassle of putting that at the end of each joke. What happens if (when) I want to discontinue it? I would have to go through and delete every short code.

      What I would like is a rating plugin that lets me use my own graphics, stores the ratings in its own separate database record, is free (or a one time purchase), tells me the time and IP address of each rating, allows me to delete individual ratings (or reset all if I so chose), shows up on all posts automatically, shows up on the main front page posts, provide a checkbox when editing a post to opt out of ratings (“Sunday’s Rant” should not be included in ratings), does not “phone home”, doesn’t slow things down, and doesn’t have a back door for the Russian hackers to fuck my shit up.

      But that’s too much to ask.
