Seeing Double?

Filed under: Contributors,Site News — Dennis @ 10:45 pm

No, you’re not.

What you are seeing is that visitors to this site are now getting TWO loudmouthed right-wing arseholes for the price of one. Because, you know, we never stop finding new ways to give you more value for the money that you don’t spend to come here. 😛 Ain’t we nice?

Some of you have likely noticed Karol here before. As in “Karol of the Damn Long-winded Comments.” So I figured to myself, why clutter up the comments when posts will do?

Like I’ve said before, I have no problem letting others post here (as long as they ain’t friggin’ Libs). So, without further ado, mosey along and check out Karol’s first post and throw in your two bits.

How long’s Karol going to be posting here? Gee, I dunno… Is Karol a mean, nasty, evil, right-wing, gun-totin’, Harper-lovin’, liberal-hatin’, knuckle-draggin’, puppy-torturin’, socialist-slappin’, feminazi-baitin’…

We’ll see. 😉

Taking A Break

Filed under: Blogosphere,Site News — Dennis @ 12:23 pm

Call it blogger burnout. Call it post-election exhaustion. Call it too many projects and not enough hours in the day. Hell, call it George, if that’s what turns your crank. Either way, I’m taking a break.

As of today, I’m going to do everything I can to try and keep my damned trap shut for at least the next two weeks (unless something really jumps up and pisses me off, of course) and just plain relax for a change.

Don’t worry, I’ll be coming back (always do) just as soon as I’ve had time to recharge the ol’ batteries and enjoy a little R&R. Until then, if anybody wants me, I’ll be at the range.  Or, more likely, in the hammock…

Time to relax...

Hope to see you all again real soon.

Risky Business

Filed under: Site News — Dennis @ 5:25 pm

We\'re doing stuffI know it’s probably a reckless thing to do at a time like this, but I’m going to try to update the software that powers this site.  Yes, I know we’re in the middle of a busy blogging season and things have gone sideways when I’ve done this in the past, but it does need to be done.

So, if you can’t access the site for an hour or so today, don’t worry (too much).  If all goes well, everything should be back where I left it in a couple of hours, if not less.

Wish me luck… 😯

Time To Fiddle A Bit

Filed under: Site News — Dennis @ 8:42 am

We're doing stuffWell, as some of you have likely noticed, there’s a bunch of funky new double-underlined links all over the place now. The reason for this is that I’ve started embedding Infolinks paid links into the blog code (hey, shooting my mouth off is a lot of fun and all, but running a website costs money, too).

While I’ve heard some bad stuff about Infolinks, I’ve also heard enough good stuff about them that I fugured they’re worth a try. The main complaint that I came across is that they can make pages load slower — a lot slower. We’ll see.

So far, the code is embedded in both individual posts and the main page. If you notice the main page starts loading like old folks shag, let me know and I’ll limit them to just the individual post views. Let’s see how this works out…

Aw, Fer… *$#%*!!

Filed under: Site News — Dennis @ 3:01 pm

Site changes & stuffAnd here I just got done updating this bloody thing…

Well, it looks like the latest and greatest for the site software has arrived. Normally, I wait for a while before I update software; I believe in letting other people find the bothersome bugs. It’s a little habit that I picked up after beta testing the original Windoze95. 😯

This update, though, just has too damned many bells and whistles that I actually want (most of ’em are on the backend, so you folks probably won’t notice much of a change but I sure as heck will), so I’m gonna hold my nose and take the plunge.

Aside from that, it’s the usual: site might be down for a bit, sorry for the inconvenience, etc…  you know the drill.

Wish me luck…

Down Time

Filed under: Site News — Dennis @ 1:42 pm

Site changes & stuffJust giving a heads-up to all who like to pop by every now and then that I’m finally getting off my lazy backside and upgrading the software that powers the site.  Everybody knows that I damned well hate doing this (something always seems to go wrong in the biggest possible pain-in-the-ass way), but it really is time to get this done.

Hopefully, the site should only be offline for a couple of hours or so.

Hopefully… 🙄
