It would appear that Wilson has taken to posting disturbed links on his own now. Hey, more disturbed links are better. Even Ardith got in on the action the other day. This pleases me and makes me happy... in a sick and sadistic kind of way.
Note: Blogger perma-links are kinda screwy... the post referenced should appear at the very top of your browser window.

Well... I was gonna post last night. However, when I got on, the thing was whining something about updating everyone to the new Blogger. Maybe that means that it won't lose any more of my posts or other screwy things like that.... I hope. It does look nice though, and I wouldn't be annoyed if it hadn't gone and updated when I wanted to post.
Incidentally, it didn't rain yesterday that I know of but today when Gecko and I went outside we were greeted with a deluge. Fun stuff that East Texas Rain...
Oh, and when you check out this great disturbed link of the day, be sure to check out the Nazi Sheep.

Apparently I toasted this post. If someone has the old contents or links, email them to me or leave them commented and I'll try to fix it. I really hate Blogger some days.

I hate it when blogger FUBARS. I wanted to whine about the fire alarms at 3 am, but it wouldn't work. As is, I've been insulting idiots on Gaia at a fairly regular clip. If you want to abuse them too, go ahead and get on. I'm Vengeful Cynic, the Brit is on as well... as is Shem.
Here's a link to the dissident frogman, where you will find good conservative commentary and a very well-done cinematic clip on the war in Iraq.

The Cynic Will Exact Vengeance Upon: Enetation
My commenting is down and I hate it. If you're going to be cynical of something, be cynical of those who want to give you something for nothing. In the end it will always screw you over. That would appear to be what is happening here. Maybe it's just that I jacked some settings up or something or there's a bug in the system. I guess we'll find out tomorrow.
Commenting has been offline almost all evening and it's been a pain in the ass to read anyone's blog. Some nights it's Haloscan. I have a personal gripe because I use Enetation and I can't hear you all griping and complaining if it's down. And no, just because I don't pay for it doesn't remove my right to gripe about it. You provide a service, it's supposed to work. If you don't want to catch hell about it, don't provide it. If you need more server capacity, get more or limit customers like Haloscan.
It's getting to the point that as soon as I get a job (the sooner the better) I'm going to get my own server space. That way I don't have to deal with blogger's crap and I can run my own commenting. And then it will only go down when my server goes down. And when that happens I can bitch and get results, because I'm paying money. Not that that should make any difference, but it does... and even moreso that I can take my money elsewhere if I'm not happy. And maybe I can even get some pictures to work right.... unlike with freaking Blogger. It's just not worth paying the money to get hosted using Blogger's POS servers and not getting the service you would with a real server.
It's a damned shame that I don't have a net-side connection or I could just set up and run my own server. Come to think of it... I could even host other people's crap with that so none of us LUsers would have to suffer through Blogger and the commenting monkeys. Food for thought over the summer...
