In an effort to simply update my page navigator, I caused this site to go blank. Had to do some fiddling through ftp just so I could see it properly again. It seems okay now, but I no longer have easy page navigation. May have to look for a new one that won’t eat my site.

Meanwhile… in the time since my last update I have registered on both Youtube and Twitter. Twitter happened a few hours ago. I’ve got some friends on it who apparently update more ther than on Facebook. I’m hoping it might be of some use for this blog. Unfortunately, I could not get @roboticdragon as it’s already been taken. Same with the youtube account. roboticdragon was taken. Perhaps if I had checked back when I set this site up, it might’ve been available. Oh well.

Also, on the subject of fixes… I messed up my ankle a while back limiting my ability to go skating and, after over a month, I have yet to feel up to snuff on going again. At least my limp is gone.

Web Critters

Friday, February 18th, 2011

The internet is a funny place. There are strange entities “living” within its imaginary walls. Maintaining an existance by feeding off the innocent are virii. A simple one merely duplicates itself on your computer. A more complex one hide is email attachments, like alien eggs waiting to hatch and molest your face. Once cleared, you may think its gone, but something more sinister moves on through your address book, bursting from within. Then running off to do more damage.

A virus is not the only type of creature living online. Most of these things are bots. Not necessarily so troublesome as a virus, but also pestular. Bots, as I have discovered, like to attach themselves to blogs and webforums. Hooking on via email accounts. If there is an open registration, these things will constantly get in, using up user numbers and waiting, it seems, for something. Possibly leading to a hacked site.(This site was hacked a while back and fixed before I could check it out)

Aside from these silent user bots, there are spambots. Spambots can speak. They post comments that seem somewhat valuable as they seem written to flatter the blogger into approving the messages so that the spambot might post again without approval. I haven’t gotten beyond permitting these critters to exist on this blog, so I really don’t know where that leads.

It could also be that these things are legitimate human beings… but I’d hardly classify them as that.

Oh yeah. And the point of this entry was to mention I have turned off open registration, but if you happen to be a reader of this thing and would like to register, you’ll have to let me know by shooting off an email or contacting me another way. Not that any normal humans have registered.

They Don’t Need Titles

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

It clears out a lot when you finish online traffic school, file your taxes, and get a paycheck to fill in the missing bank funds. The stress goes and it seems things begin to look up. I even came across $1.10 lying around while working, which, when still not making a whole lot higher than the lowest legal wage, it’s a nice little bit.

The previously mentioned upcoming move to nicer digs seems to be at a hault. At the moment it’s all in the hands of my brother/roommate. We have 11 days to be out of the current place and his being rather busy it’s putting me a little on edge. New potential business prospects along with Fox approaching him for a reality show sort of puts him in the boat of slightly too busy to fax over the applications for the apartment on Sweetzer. Trouble.

As for my “comedy career”, I just put Zoo appearance #8 in the toilet bag and collected myself a link to open mic listings. I’ve started using an RPG analogy and I now I feel I’ve reached level 7 or level 8. I’ll level faster if I can use this list, network and collect xp(which is appropriate, seeing as how literal experiences build material).

Oddly, probably not ironically, my brother so recently(less than 24 hours ago) found out that the show How I Met Your Mother, featuring Den Regular(and Muppet fanatic) Jason Segel, was not a reality show but a sitcom. I have no idea how exactly such a title would work as a reality show and I suppose that question is pretty damn moot, but damn.

Meanwhile, to add to the plethora of subjects, here, I had a minor issue with my site navigation and had to replace it with another. Bottom of the current entries. Use it to see what I did.
