Welcome to my new digs.

Finally all moved in and all settled down.  HostPapa is nice and fast, and I’m happy so far with what I see.  Soon I will chronicle the hilarity that is my attempt at getting technical support from Webserve, as soon as humanly possible anyway.  Boy has a lot of junk happened that I really want …

Our long nightmare is nearly over.

I’m getting an account with HostPapa.  Besides them buying green energy, they also have a great plan for the same price I was paying at Webserve, with the option to host unlimited domains and use unlimited space (within reason, whatever that means), and it appears as though I can actually turn off PHP Safe mode …

Clifton is hitched. Pay your respects.

So Clifton got married today.  Jodi had been feeling under the weather for the past few days, so I attended the wedding alone.  The chapel had a chalk outline of a body in the parking lot, they forgot the marriage license, the preacher used the word “God” more than the word “the” (I was kind …

ur in my house stealin my internets

If you can see this post, then you’re seeing the blog as hosted on the Ubuntu side of my desktop computer.  I don’t know how long it’s going to have to stay here, but I’m fed the fuck up with Webserve’s lack of technical support and their particular security measures which, under normal circumstances, I …

Enough is enough

There comes a time where you have to get bitchy to get results. Folks, This is my fifth attempt to contact someone on this issue.  I have entered 3 e-mails attempting to contact someone via the Live Chat support site, and when I once called 1-888-443-4678 for technical support, the agent who answered informed me …

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 …

My rebuttal to JTankers

Sir, with respect, get a god damn life. Five minutes of Googling has revealed to me that you are either a composite of dozens or hundreds of like-minded individuals building a body of work over the past year, in an effort to build a persona the likes of which has not been seen since Usenet, …

The downtime that was not downtime

It looks like my home internet connection is blocked somehow from connecting to this server (either my site or Jodi’s), but when I’m logged into my work VPN, I can connect to it fine.  I have to wonder about this — how many other home consumer-class cable or DSL accounts are blocked?  How many people …

Ridiculous downtime, and my first troll

First up folks, my apologies for the ridiculous amount of downtime over the weekend, and this immediately after I close my Facebook account and direct people here.  Murphy’s law and all that.  Needless to say I’m irritated at my hosting provider, and while I’m only paying for the lowest package available, I could probably get …

Critical thinking, evolution, and how to not be dismissed as a total idiot

As you’ll likely recall, I had planned a post about Darwin pareidolia.  I have about twenty tabs open in my Firefox right now, most of which having something or other to do with this, but the remainder are actually sort-of related to this, to pareidolia in general, and to the creationism v. evolution debate.  To …
