Posts under ‘the internets’


I gifted myself with a new look for my design firm’s home this weekend, over at Sekimori Design.  If it looks all gear-y and pipe-y, well, that’s a’purpose as I was going for a Steampunk look. Steampunk is a subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set […]

It Ain’t All About Gardening

Ok, so *most* of it is. But when one gets tagged for a meme, one must scour the dirt out from under one’s fingernails and break out the CD-Rs. According to Michele, I’m supposed to pick my 19 favorite songs and do the following: Choose 19 of the songs you like best, regardless of artist […]

Browsers and Idiots and Soup

If you’ve recently upgraded to Firefox and are finding the sodding thing locked up completely whilst your CPU howls like a banshee…downgrade that bitch. does not have the same troubles. I love you Firefox. Don’t become another cpanel, testing your new “features” on actual release versions. … When we send you access information […]

Entertain Me, Won’t You?

In the past few days I’ve put a goodly number of new blogs on the reading list, subcategoried by interest, so the other people who use my list as *their* list won’t have to slog through the Gardening/Foodie links when all they want are lolcats. I like WordPress’ integrated Blogroll tool for this, since it […]


Dear “celebrities” who are fucking LATE to this whole blogging thing: The entirety of your weblog is called a “blog.” A single fucking POST is not called a “blog.” It is called either a “post,” or an “entry,” as you like, but it is not fucking called a BLOG. You didn’t write five “blogs” on […]


Moved the sodding Twitter update box down to the bottom since they have so many damned load issues. Hey guys, it’s called failover, look into it.Ok, you install an (open-source *spit*) application from the one-click installer we so helpfully provide. One day it starts erroring. Oh noess, whatever should I do. Well, Genius, the first […]

Tasty Niblets

Otherwise legitimate people who spam their entire freaking address books with their “important” and “need your help!” bullshit causes need to have their intarwebs taken away. And their thumbs, too.Have I mentioned how much I love this girl’s dancing? I do. And that Daft Punk song Harder, Better, Stronger, Faster makes me giddy. And also […]

Intarwebs Hosting: Know Your Rights and Responsibilities

Well, more Responsibilities than Rights, but who’s counting…Just because you insist upon something, it is not automatically true. The more shrill you get in your insisting, the more less true whatever you’re insisting on becomes. When we tell you the remote network is queueing the mail for delivery, that’s because it is. Insisting that something […]

Internets Killed the Video Star

Podcasts. I don’t get it. What is so special about hearing *radio* on your computer? Even better, some twit’s low-budget production value radio?”But you can download it to your iPod and listen later!” That doesn’t fix the whole “low-budget production value radio” thing, now does it. Thing is, I go to the internets to READ […]
