Name Generator

Finally got around to moving this over to the new site.

Generate a Name! The names generated are randomly generated, so you can wind up with almost anything, including English words and names from various movies, games, books, whatever. The names are truely random, if you get something unexpected, just hit Generate Name again. Yes, this can include certain four-letter words, although it's very unlikely. It's random.

I'm Horrible At Approving Comments

Just in case anyone wonders, the reason comments sit in the moderation queue for ages is because I'm far too lazy to get around to approving them.

Sorry about the wait.

I wish I could claim it's been a busy week, but... well, it's been a cold one. That's my excuse.

That and I have the attention span of a - oo, Daily Show time.

Site Update Complete

The site has been updated, although there are still a few problems with Internet Explorer and certain pages that I'm not going to fix.

Other than that, everything appears to have come through OK!

Site Update, September 30th

On September 30th, 19:00 GMT (3:00PM EDT, 12:00PM PDT) this site will be unavailable while it is being upgraded. This downtime should be at most an hour.

Why Thank You, Spammer

More and more of the comment spam is starting with complements. It'd be nice if I thought there was anyone actually writing them.

I'll get stuff like "Great site! Love the hard work!" followed by a collection of spam links.

Yeah. I'm going to fall for that. Pull a random complement out of a database to win over website operators from around the world.

The smartest ones are those that have just the complement and hide the spam link in their username. Sorry. "Like your site!" linked to "buy-my-viagacra-now.info" is really going to sneak past.

There's a reason why all comments have to be admin approved. I've lost count of the number of comment spams I've deleted.

Thought for the Moment

This is simply a list of old Thought for the Moments from the box on the right side of the page.

  • Bittersweet chocolate is more bitter than sweet.
  • Someone should create an electric powered ice cream scoop.
  • We should burn spammers as a renewable source of energy.
  • Internet Explorer was originally created as a punishment in Hell for the hubris of the Netscape developers, until Bill Gates bought it from Beelzebub and released its blight upon the world.

    (Or: What CSS rule is IE interpreting as "draw random sections of this block?!")

I've Moved

Oh, right, I've moved. So I suppose I should mention that I have Internet access at my new address now and can receive email and moderate comments and all that jazz.

I'm Moving!

I'll be moving this weekend, which means I'll be even less responsive than in the past. I still need to sign up for Internet access from a company, so I won't have access to the Internet for a while.

Note that "this weekend" is July 1st, 2006. We'll see how long this story stays up after it no longer applies.

Fixed User Privileges

I can't remember if I've ever posted this before, but user accounts created on this site also work within FFXI @ xenoveritas.org. However, due to a configuration error, users created from this site would have no privileges to access the other site, and vice-versa.

I have now corrected this. All user accounts created from either site should work on both sites. You'll (currently) still need to log in to each part of the site individually, but your user account should now work properly on both sites.

So, I'm Back

My brother's reminded me that I've been back for a week and haven't bothered updating. Well, now I have.

Plus I think I have some new blog entries that may be interesting.

Maybe I should start allowing blog entries to perculate to the front page...
