    What’ll I do on Friday night without FtB? I might have to do something desperate, like read a book or make love to the wife or waste time some other way.

    In a sorta related topic: Do you have any control over the number of entries in your RSS feed? 10 is a bit on the small side for a high-traffic blog such as yours; I’m too busy to check the feed for a day or two, and I have to manually crawl through the blog archive. Highly annoying.

    That’s not a halo, tinyangel, it’s your rectum. Oh, and it’s not supposed to go around your neck.

    Scoot back to the slimepit, tinyangel, and give Wanc Hoggle a big hug and pass on my best wishes for a speedy recovery

    I’m wondering if a change in the site design might help. It sounds kind of unusual that you would have to upgrade to a better server every 1-2 months.

    One obvious improvement that could reduce the load on the server might be to not always load all comments at once.

    Of course, redesigning the site probably won’t be cheap. But it might pay off in the long run…

    “Scoot back”..nice, no porcupines here very polite!!

    “Slimepit”..nice, dehumanizing language much like used by the Nazis!! Make the enemy sound like an unhuman and your soldiers will find it easier to kill them, thanks Adolf!!

    “Wanc Hoggle”..not sure. meant to be Wank?? Can you not write curse words cupcake??

    “give Wanc Hoggle a big hug”..wouldn’t that be a sexually intrussive move and he could be offended?? Should I do it in an elevator or a bar??

    “speedy recovery”..genuineley best wishes or are you threatening the safety of a public figure and leading atheist personality??

    Gi back to lurking you nasty troll!!

    You don’t need a decaying porcupine to fuck yourself with. You can fuck yourself any way your tinybrain can think of. And after you’ve fucked yourself, you can go back to the slimepit with the rest of the menz.
