25 years ago yesterday, EgyptAir Flight 648, hijacked two days prior by the terrorist Abu Nidal Organization and forced to land on Malta, was raided by an Egyptian special forces counter-terrorism team. The raid led to dozens of deaths, making the hijacking of Flight 648 one of the deadliest such incidents in history.
I think that's the most cowardly things I've ever heard a terrorist leader do, in reality or fiction.
I'm having trouble deciding whether I think his second sentence was fair or unfair. I'm not too used to thinking about different national law systems interacting.
This blog post is late. I fell asleep early last night, and slept soundly for several hours. To the extent that I have any obligations to blog each day, sorry about that.
That was my first reason to feel slightly incompetent. Here's the second reason: you remember yesterday when I cleared the cache and the problem just went away, right? And I concluded that whatever faulty
.trans call (or whatever) might have caused this, it must be gone now. But a new problem appeared: now the markdown was no longer turned into HTML.
I wrote "And yes, I did revert the change that turned off the Text::Markup::Wiki::MediaWiki code path." Problem is, it seems I reverted that change after running November once. Which (duh) re-cached the page with the HTML generation turned off.
After realizing that, I cleared the cache again. Now we're back to this.

So this day and yesterday have essentially taken me a full circle, not giving much insight besides the realization that I'm sloppy and forgetful.
Ah well. New chance to actually fix stuff tomorrow. Er, I mean today.
