Website Issues

Just a quick one here.
Yes I am aware that the website has been acting wonky. Things have been broken since my webhost redirected the DNS server to an old archive last week. I haven’t had a chance to fix it quite yet but I suspect I’ll have more free time in the coming week to devote a little bit more than a cursory glance to it.

Just bear with me and it’ll get done in time… Greg time that is *grin*

… And We’re Back

Woo!

Yay, I don’t have to wade through 10 months of archived posts trying to salvage things. It looks like my web host actually came through and found my missing sql databases. Hooray! Still no clue what all happened but right now I’m happy enough not to care and can now continue blissfully in my sporadic postings of deranged enlightenment.

In other news, I managed to see Iron Man yesterday. I figured I’d get it out of the way before Indy hits. It was good, but there were times that Robert Downey Jr.’s performance was just a little over the top and it grated ever so slightly. Still a great adaptation and it sets the stage for the sequel and the addition of Rhodes as War Machine. If you have the chance, I highly recommend seeing it.

Coming Late To The Party… Again

So I stumbled upon another gem of a webcomic tonight and I’m amazed I hadn’t discovered it sooner.  It’s a brilliant amalgam of storytelling and art in a world reminiscent of a very trippy Alice in Wonderland. I can’t wait to read more because the story arc looks like it’s just beginning to unfold.

In the meantime I suggest you take a look for yoruselves and bask in the glory that is Kukuburi

If Your Life Was A Movie, What Would The Soundtrack Be?

Alright. I haven’t done one of these silly memes in awhile now. Going to place the blame fully on Christine for this one. Besides, placing the blame will totally distract everyone from my eclectically bad taste in music.

So, here’s how it works:

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that’s playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don’t lie

A Bit of Mindless Fun

Well, it’s been a fun weekend. The novelty of having a computer again still hasn’t worn off. I’m surfing randomly and trying to rebuild my bookmarks and links while also playing catch up with the sites that I haven’t had access to in the past 6 months. It’s bliss, glorious bliss.

Of course, once I had a working computer again one of the first things that I did was… no, not porn you dirty minded buggers. No, I downloaded the last couple of episodes from this season of Doctor Who! Yay geeky me. It was glorious.

Next was to go through all the fun and stupid links that people sent me.

I’m blaming my friend Tamara for these ones.

First up is a mindless little flash video that gave me a giggle.

Next up is Tokyo Plastic. An odd little Japanese site filled with modern and digital art...

I Can Haz Laptop!

And my toy arrived bright and early this morning. Thankfully my dog likes to bark at the doorbell or I wouldn’t have heard the courier, but I did and I now have a fancy new toy. Yay. I’m currently upgrading the software and tweaking it to remove as many traces of Internet Exploder that I possibly can. Firefox all the way baby!

The speed of this thing is glorious. Copying my whole 10GB of songs on my ipod amounted to a whole 5 minutes as opposed to the hour or so it took before. This rocks. Now I am sitting here, getting comfortable with the keyboard layout and downloading all the mail that I’ve received since I last had a functioning computer back in September. Anyone care to take a guess as to how many messages that I have (not including deleted messages and spam)?

No, higher than that...

Twitching The Night Away

So here I sit, hopefully for the last (or at the very least the penultimate) time at this keyboard on this crappy computer waiting desperately for my own new toy to arrive. I keep hoping that it will arrive soon. For the past two days I’ve gone to work hoping that I’d come home and there it would be, exhultant in all it’s glory but have been disappointed both days. Tomorrow perhaps is what I keep telling myself. I hope it’s here before the weekend though so as I can spend time setting things up and then come Monday on my day off, I can actually play on it.

Can you tell I was never any good at Christmas?

Anyway, since I’m bored and trying to amuse (read distract) myself from my lack of computational goodness, I’ve been surfing the web randomly looking for things to amuse and delight.

Tonigh...

A Miscellany

Just a brief and mindless couple of comments tonight as I’m sick as a dog and nursing the mother of all colds.

Guh!

Snot should not be virulent yellow. At least I have two days off to enjoy my NyQuil. Yup, it’s green death fucking flavour. *grin*

Err, anyways, before I go off on my Denis Leary Nyquil homage I am happy to announce that my Laptop shipped today… about an hour ago actually according to my email, so here’s hoping that come monday morning I have a shnazzy new toy to play with. I don’t have a shipping # yet though so I can’t obsessively track it to find out where it is and when exactly it will get here.

In other news… WTF?!?!? Honestly, just WHAT. THE. FUCK?

Also Here are some hillarious muppet bloopers!
