Is It a Bug or a Feature? Either Way, Publish0x Doesn't Like Deleting Massive Amounts of Posts

By LoonyLiberal | Dollars and Nonsense | 11 Sep 2020

I mentioned yesterday (in a now-deleted post) that I was going to repurpose my Publish0x blogs. I did save some of my favorite blog posts; I don't plan on reposting them, but I'm willing to recycle a joke or two.

Publish0x had other plans. I found out the hard way that we can't delete Publish0x blogs with active posts.

"No problem. I'll delete my active posts," I said to myself.

It turns out that Publish0x only allows us to delete one active post at a time.

"Oooookay... this might take a while," I muttered to myself.

And then... after I delete 20-25 posts, Publish0x just stops deleting posts. I verified that other sites such as Google worked just fine. I restarted my browser, then resumed the purge.

And then, my computer became completely unresponsive.

That's right. Publish0x was my HAL.

But Dave didn't have a smartphone. I did. I completed the purge there until my computer restarted.

And now... I have three new blogs.

This blog will focus on anything pertaining to finance: cryptocurrency, traditional currency, stocks, bonds, dividends, bear pelts, leopard pelts, Lucy Van Pelts... I'm sure my readers get the point.

Of course, I know nothing useful about money other than that gambling is a losing proposition. (Sadly, that doesn't stop me from trying to win anyways.) Fortunately, I know how to make a variety of jokes. So I'll try to make money zany! I did somewhat well with my #SatoshisSaturday posts. I hope to make those posts even sillier. After all, what's crazier than 1/100th of a United States penny? What will that buy? A shaving off of a one-year-old gumball?

For now though, I'm going to keep writing. After all, it's hard to make jokes about money when I don't have any.
