Dear random html generator script on Slash City: Why do you hate me? I do not hate you. In fact, I think the concept of you is pretty cool, hence me trying to partake of your services. Yet, though I follow the directions to the cut-and-paste letter, you do not work. You mock and laugh at me. Though I am enterprising and adapt the directions to reflect the fact that the page on which I want you to make pretty text appear is not in the top-level public_html directory, still you make no pretty text appear. Still, you jeer at me.

Do I smell?

*cries*

sincerely,
MP

Well, to misquote Terry Pratchett: I understood every word of that post but not the actual post itself.

However ::hugs:: anyway.

*g*

Slashcity, on which the Queer Eye For The Undead guy site currently resides, provides a neat little feature whereby you can have a file with a list of .. pieces of text, basically, separated by blank lines. If you've implemented it properly, and you paste the code into a web page, every time the web page is refreshed, you get one of those bits of text, at random.

The Victorian Sex Cry Generator uses something similar.

I want to set that up for the 'Hip Tips' page on the Queer Eye for the Undead Guy site, so every time you refresh the page, you get a different Hip Tip, rfom Angel, Spike, Gunn, etc.

Only despite me follow directions like good girl, she no work. :-(

Ah! Actually, I did understand that! Weird!

You will post here when that is up and running won't you, sounds fun. Are you doing actual quotes from the shows? Or your observations? Or should I wait and see and stop bugging you?!

I'm sure it's not that you smell, as you don't smell.
Maybe it's because it's not in the top-level public_html directory.

Alas, I tried putting it in the top-level directory, and still it sat there and did nothing. I can only assume it must indeed be the stench.

*cries further*

I wondered what that funky smell was.

And where's this Queer Eye for the Undead Guy thing? I think I want it.

The 'official' site is here: http://madpoetess.slashcity.org/queereye

The one that's being mean to me is the test directory for version 2.0.

God, that's fricking funny.

You gonna be writing fic for it, too? Please say you are? Because that's just too fricking amusing. Please? Pretty please? With horny gay men on top? (Or on bottom, or both...)

*begs prettily*

I'm thinking not fic per se -- more fake episode recaps. A la Television Without Pity, only, you know, not asshatish. The real episodes, recapped through slash goggles. "Did everyone notice Angel's hand on Wesley's ass, there? What, were you *all* up getting a snack? What the hell, people?"
