What’s an incredibly good looking person to do when they want to update their blog, but don’t have the time to write a REAL post?
That’s easy! They write a bullet post!
- My big news is that THIS BLOG IS FINALLY FIXED! No, I don’t mean I got myself neutered (that would be a crime against mankind). I mean that the problems that I have been bitching about with my blog have finally been corrected.
You may remember that during last summer, I suddenly lost about 30 percent of my readers, who thought I suddenly deleted my blog because they could no longer access it. Yeah, that was really fun! I banged my head against the wall, trying different setups, scouring geek forums, and doing everything short of selling my kidney to try to figure out what was going on.
NO ONE had a clue. Not google, not my isp, not my hosting company….. no one.
The really infuriating thing was that, last week, it just started working again for everyone who was having an issue. As near as I can tell, it seems to have had something to do with Verizon’s DNS setup, but as maddening as it was, it’s over now.
So, all you AWOL people can come on back now. Of course, those people are no longer here, so I’m actually talking to MYSELF right now. Wonderful.
- The Saga of the Atari 800 continues! You might remember that last month I began the process of getting my childhood computer, my beloved Atari 800, up and running again, to play with Mini-Me. I am happy to report that not only do we have it up and running, but I was amazed to discover a really lively internet community that still sells, plays, and builds Atari stuff. I actually am in the process of purchasing a second Atari 800xl that is still new in the box! Who the hell keeps a computer new in the box for 20 years, only to sell it? That’s freaky. I’m also in the process of swapping out my ancient disk drive with a machine that will allow it to accept programs from a modern SD card, which might sound very lame, but if you are a techno-geek like myself, makes me all tight in the pants.
- Speaking of computer fun, all week I have been having the most fun I’ve had in a while with my pants on, playing a new game called MINECRAFT. It’s basically like playing Lego’s on steroids. You are given a complete world to build, destroy, and basically do whatever you want with it. It’s been tons of fun, and both Mini-Me and myself are having a ball with it. If you have 14 Euros to spare (it’s made in Sweden), I strongly suggest googling it and picking it up.
I guess that’s it for now. Have fun, my lovelies, and have a super sexy weekend!
