Happy Talk like a Pirate Day!

Avast me hearties, it be International Talk like a Pirate Day.  My webhost still has me barred from making port in me own hometown, so I be sending this message by carrier parrot.  If they don’t end this embargo soon, we’ll chum the waters with their entrails, we will!  Arrr!

I have many chores this weekend, not the least of which will be getting these sumbitches from unbanning me before I take my business elsewhere.  I don’t know how much I’ll be able to post.  Apologies to those of you who were expecting actual content.  If you’re looking for something to do, research the Large Hadron Collider and decide whether or not the doomsayers have a case, visit Something Awful and try to start a new internet meme, or maybe donate some money to me toward a Chevy Volt.

One of you lubbers fetch me a grog!  Smartly now!

    Hmmm…. no attention from the readership yet. I’m not in the habit of doing this, but here, have a pity comment.

    I notice things get quiet when I can’t post more regularly. That happens when you have a readership of 5. I appreciate your pity, though. I’m not likely to be able to fix things what with an uncooperative webhost and doing double-duty at work. I’m going to be pulling an overnight tomorrow at the other centre — you should come visit. Bring grog. I missed out on ITLaPD.

    I think you are lovely and do quite the job in keeping this blog in order and frequently updated. Me, well, I am sorely lacking in the maintainence category as well as presentation. I apologise. I aspire to be more like you.

    Allison uses the internets!?

    Lots of people aspire to be more like me. That’s nothing to be ashamed of. It just means your standards are lowered!

    Hmmm… a visit at my old place of employment, with alcohol. Wouldn’t be the first time I’ve been half cut in that building.

    Tell ya what, any time after 8 or 9 pm I’ll probably be winding down my big troubleshoot spree hopefully.
