Wow ... wonder what happened ...

LJUR140730I probably shouldn't pay attention to that Live Journal "user rating" thing ... but my OCD just gloms onto that number. It's a ranking, so the number is the "place" you're in, the smaller number the better.

And between yesterday and today that went from being 11,000-something to being 36,000-something. That's a huge jump (drop). Wonder what the heck that was about.

For a while I was writing this stuff down, and there was a time (not too long ago) when my "ranking" was in the upper 6,000s ... generally the number moves around a few dozen slots on a daily basis, but this was the biggest shift I can recall seeing. I mean, really, WHAT would cause me to suddenly (overnight) drop 25,000-some slots?

I feel damaged. This is so confusing.

LJUR140730aOK, there must been some sort of glitch on LJ's part ... usually these don't update more than once in a day, and so that 25,000+ jump (drop) must have been some strange behind-the-scenes number crunching error ... if you look at the rankings, it's now showing me having gone up 26,180 slots!

Hmmm ... considering that I was at 11,000-something yesterday, this means that I got ranked higher today despite the brief WTF? moment!

Today was otherwise a crappy day in yet another crappy week (in yet another crappy month, in yet another crappy year, etc.), so I'll take whatever little glimmer of "happy" I can find ...
