My bad

You write a post about missing your girlfriend at what, two in the morning? And you decide to give a vague allusory nod to Tantek, Matt, and Eric in the process by titling it with whimsical reference to their XHTML Friends Network. But since you’re using Safari as your primary browser these days, and it’s two in the morning, and you just want to go to bed, you fail to run your Decaffeination script, and fail to check the post in anything but Safari, and fail to notice that your post just isn’t valid. And then… since you’re serving your pages with the application/xhtml+xml MIME type, Mozilla users everywhere find your site to be a big, broken, invalid mess; and you’ve gone to bed.

And you don’t return to your computer screen for twelve hours.

So, to the handful of humans who saw fit to email me angrily about my broken website: thank you. Of course, me being asleep meant that such things didn’t get fixed very quickly, so I must beg forgiveness.
