World O' Crap Has Moved (And Is Currently Couch Surfing)

Thanks to a particularly vicious hacker, our previous home is a spectacular, unusable mess at the moment.  So until further notice, we'll be squatting here -- please do us a favor and pass the word to any other Crappers you may know.

On the bright side (or is it?) our Annual Christmas Movie Massacre will posted later this evening.

(Wonder if I can post pictures on this thing...?)


Yay.  Hope everyone is having a happy holiday.

Ah, I see what you mean. That sucks++!

Positive note: I have an avatar here.

I am house-sitting and typing on a foreign computer, and I thought that the reason I couldn't get to you was because of links and cookies and whatever. Or that maybe I somehow accidentally broke stuff. That would have been really embarrassing. Stupid hackers.

Some people (i.e., stupid hackers) just can't have fun without trying to make someone else miserable. War On Christmas people are the same way. I can run around enjoying the festivities in my innocent, primitive atheist way, and I can smile when someone wishes me to have a Happy Time doing anything (because that's very considerate, yes), but meanwhile, that's not enough for the War On Christmas people.

Nothing is ever enough for people like that. It's like they have to live in the problem, like they deliberately choose to be "painbows" when they could be rainbows.

Luckily I am feeling cheerful anyway. Best of luck killing the stupid hackers. Um, do you need extra money?

Scott said...

Larkspur, that's extremely kind. Thank you. (I can'y deny that extra money would be very helpful at the moment -- at least, I can't do it with a straight face). Sadly, I think we'll be scrimping for quite awhile before we can afford to hire someone to disentangle the Gordian knot of code left behind by the hacker(s).

I'll bet there's Holiday Cheer inside the Frolic. Not necessarily actual happiness, but you know ...

Is that picture from this season?

Scott said...

M: Yes, I took it about a week ago. I had some others I was going to post, but then the whole bloggerdammerung happened.

Here is my Xmas wish: I wish that today or tomorrow, I could save someone from almost certain death, and in his or her most heartfelt gratitude, he or she confesses that he or she is a world-class hacker, and will happily grant me one single beautiful wish. You know what it will be. Gordian knots are made to be hack-sawed.

M. Bouffant said...

Wish I knew someone who knew anything about web hosting/programming. And was a helpful sort.

I really should get out of Little Bangla Desh more. Except for the box-mobile, that could almost be, say, 1970, w/ a West Side Story road show at the Pantages & Hair coming soon.

Or are we in a (creative) time warp w/o knowing it?

That hadn't even occurred to me, but you're right. Suddenly I'm thirsty for Annie Greensprings Strawberry Wine, and I don't know why...

Thank the FSM Bouffant told us at Sadly No where to find you guys.I was totes distraught at the thought of no Bad Movie Xmas Write-up.
Hackers - Hell is other people, indeed. Rot their twisted hides.

Always have wanted to go to the Frolic Room, never have.

Hope you're having a good Christmas - er, Happy Holiday! - thanks to M.Bouffant for the directions.

Scott said...

Thanks, Aunt, glad you found us. And many thanks to M.B. for passing the word.

maryclev said...

Dittoing the thanks to MB.

I like this avatar thing we can do!

Stacia said...

Argh, the hackers. That sucks. I'll try to get a post up about your new digs today (can't tonight, took melatonin already and zzzzzzzzzz...) Your old site looks okay for now, although a couple minutes ago it tried to redirect me. That hung, nothing happened, and then the page came up just fine. Maybe that's my cached version kicking in, though. Hope you get it sorted soon!

Scott said...

Thanks, Stacia!

Woodrowfan said...

glad you're back! Happy Christmas and Happy 2011!

StringonaStick said...

Well Scott, apparently your professional grade snark hit a target extremely well; you should be very proud!

Seriously, WTF is up with some people? If ya can't take the criticism then quit being a first class bint or own up to it like a real, mentally competant person instead of a Stalinist thug. Whack-a-mole is the response of a pissed off child, not an adult.

Scott said...

Yep, that pretty much says it all.

What would really be sweet is if there were a way to hook an industrial welding machine to our computer coaxial cables and send a couple thousand volts to the hacker (without frying anyone else's computers or houses...)
We live in shitty times, indeed. You can't open unknown email without risking your financial and personal info, you can't surf in uncharted territories without catching a social disease planted there like an unwatched land mine, and you can't hold forth with progressive opinions without attracting mouth-breathing knuckle-draggers whose only mission in life is to spam/comment/hack away at your site until you submit or resign from blogging.
In a perfect world some whiz kid would come up with the anti-hack-attack program that instantly puts ten times the amount of misery they produce back on their asses, while simultaneously notifying their parents, friends, and relatives of their shitty behavior.
A bonus software app would also neuter them. Sort of like cyber-chlorine for the shallow end of the gene pool...
Good luck getting your original site back up, and I'm glad I found your link to this one.

happy new year, regardless....

Scott said...

Thanks, squatlo. We're very glad you found us! Happy New Year to you too.
