…migrants of servers in the silicon crack of history…

Bat migrating

The server migration is complete…almost. Last night, I transferred CNAME records from my old host to my new host, WebFaction. While I was on my WebFaction control panel, I also recreated the email addresses that I would need. (There were some I had created that I never used, so I was able to pare the …read more…

I’m a Red Shirt!

So I took the Which Star Trek Character Are You? quiz that Jeff Baker offers on his web site. Guess what? I’m a red shirt! And proud of it! (I think.) Your results: You are An Expendable Character (Redshirt) An Expendable Character (Redshirt) 90% Spock 84% Geordi LaForge 75% Jean-Luc Picard 65% Data 64% James …read more…

New Personal Home Page

For the past ten years or so, I’ve always used my own index.htm file as the homepage for all my browsers, adding to it the links I visit the most. Over the years I added and deleted links, and occasionally tweaked the css, but for the past few years, it’s been pretty static. I recently …read more…

…it’s a part of my rock and roll fantasy…

For some reason, I needed to hear Devo’s “Whip It”, so I headed over to YouTube and found this:

“Whip It!” by Devo

I was just a kid when that song came out, but I still love it. The video is a little questionable, though—slightly racist, slightly misogynistic. Still, gotta love that song.

How the new “Star Trek” movie should have ended.

I was really looking forward to the latest Star Trek movie, but it turned out to be just a tired retread of the last Star Trek movie: ugly Romulans (read: foreigners, illegal aliens, Arabs, people from India, Muslims, people with beards, Mexicans, Democrats, people with turbans, people with an accent, immigrants, people with dark hair …read more…
