Whistling In The Graveyard: February 01, 2004

Saturday, February 07, 2004

Got the car back today and it's running better than it has in quite some time. Now I just need to get the guy that has my window part to e-mail me back so I can buy the part, wait for it to get here, install it in the car and get the car inspected so I can drive it.

Shit, how long can that take?

Yeah, I know. I was being sarcastic you assholes.

Speaking of sarcastic assholes, the one year anniversary of this very blog is fast approaching (Feb 23) and I'm planning to do something special to mark the occasion. Something like maybe moving the blog to a place where all the fucking functions work. I mean is it too much to fucking ask to have my comments? I wasn't really complaining about the lack of an archive, but I'm still pissed about the comments.

Blogger can Blo-me.

So anyway Blogger is pissing me right the hell off.

See, most of you have noticed that the comments are down. Not just down, but down indefinitely.

The way I looked at it, it's a free service. What can you expect right? Then I saw this:

Blogout System Message: System Closed. See Site for Details.

Which led to this:

Ok. well as you have all probably found out, BlogOut is pretty much down. I dont have the drive space to facillitate the system any longer and am unfortunately going to have to shut it down for now. Hopefully in the future I'll be able to bring back a more stable, more flexible solution, but until then I apologize for the inconvenience.


Once again, free service, right? The tone of the message makes it seem like it's a little site run by some underdog, little guy that's struggling to do me the favor of hosting my little blog.

But then I thought about it. It's goddamn proffessional enough to have an ad banner and an ad banner means they're making money from my little blog being here. Not a ton of money I'll grant you, but a little from me, and a little from everyone else on Blogger. You'd think they could fix the fucking thing.

So I considered going to a pay site (and I still haven't ruled that out, mind you) and I realized that if I was paying for the Blogger upgrade I'd probably still have my fucking comments.

Anyways, I'm going to give it a few more days, but if you come here and find a link to another site you'll know that I moved and why. If I need to pay for a blog I'm going to one that works. My fucking archives never did work here...

So how about that Superbowl?

You know, for two teams that nobody gave a shit about it turned into a pretty good game.

Yeah, yeah, I know. SOME of you gave a shit, but nationally I think most of us went into it with no strong feeling either way about who won. Most people agreed that they "Just wanted to see a good game" and then gave some reason why they marginally favored one team or the other, but it seems the rabid fanaticism of most previous years just wasn't there.

Maybe it's just me.

I really wanted to write something funny here, but I'm just not into football enough to come up with something.

Oh, one thing. Was I the only person that noticed Janet Jackson's titty popping out?

And the close up here.

And lets not forget this either.
