    @mgrimes @remus Yeah. New mom, first baby — overreactions are pretty typical. I'm pretty sure she was going to take that baby to the hospital, though, no matter what anyone said. Can't hurt, I guess.

      Still. That soft *whump*. Seeing that baby pancaked on the mulch. <shudders>

        The momma started freaking out. Screaming baby. Dad was trying in vain to settle everyone down. Spooky stuff, though I think the landing was soft enough the little's okay.

          Went for a nice walk on some of the trails around the museum. On my way back, I passed some new parents with an infant, getting photos taken. They had the infant sitting about 3.5' off the ground on a piece of art when she fell, face-first on the mulch.

            @keita Might have something to do with this [posts.app.net].

              @lasar That's part of our problem. Somewhere back there several years ago, someone tried to heavily customize WP to become a CMS. It's now so far behind it's literally unsupportable.

                @ludolphus Cool. Thanks for your work!

                  @lasar Yeah. WordPress. Not sure why that was our platform of choice, but there you go. / @matigo

                    @ludolphus Looks like Chimp doesn't want me to use emoji in PMs. The keyboard only briefly switches to emoji, then right back to normal.

                      @lasar Oof. That's the last thing we need. Sounds like standalone really fits our use case better. / @matigo

                        @matigo I'm quickly learning to hate WordPress. We're quickly moving toward segregating those sites behind a much more restrictive firewall, after which we're likely to ignore them until the customer agrees to pay for an overhaul.

                          @matigo You're probably more cautious with plugins than we were. No standardization. Many have been modified. Custom themes that don't get updated. Carnage.

                            @matigo As often as I'm seeing compromise and breakage on our 35 sites, I'm kind of glad they're not multi.

                              @sbeebe Nice. Sometimes I miss having the back end of a pickup loaded down with useful things like that.

                                @matigo As an aside to this — and as someone who knows almost nil about WordPress — what's the benefit of multi-site over single site?

                                  The best parental control is still adult supervision.

                                    @mandyd Good to know I'm not the only one who experiences this. 👍🏼

                                      @longstride No telling. I like bluegrass more than I like, say, Grateful Dead cover bands. But jam sessions always feel repetitive to me. I get bored.
