In Unrelated Site News

This is getting out of hand.

It’s impossible to log in, there’s no option to register that actually works and the site keeps redirecting those of you brave enough to try to comment.

I’m about to just shove this whole load of crap into the shit bin and start over.


Pissed off with myself here.

    Well, logged in and commenting Sire. Perhaps it was a shot across the bow from the UN/Beijing towards bloggers? :em03:

    No, it’s my own fault. I got too hands off with the website apart from posting, and now it’s an unholy mess that even I myself can’t figure out without devoting a couple of weeks to it, which I don’t have. And then it got progressively worse with every single WordPiss update to the point where you can’t edit, you can’t register, you can’t even fucking log in from the comments page. Heck, I can’t even get to the back end without picking edit from the front page…

    Damn, I long for the good old days some 12 years ago with BlogSnot.

    I’ve had intermittent problems logging in, but that could be due to my less than stellar interwebs service.

    My nephew does this for a living – do you need some assistance?

    I figured out that you have to log in from the landing page, not the comments page.

    Also, the Comment Editor doesn’t work. Opens, but doesn’t load or activate any text. Guess we’ll have to do our proofreading in realtime!

    And Now for Something Completely Different: Here is a totally cool map of the solar system — to scale.

    “If the Moon were one pixel. . . .”


    Hop on, and scroll to the right. Don’t cheat! or you’ll miss the entire experience (and the funny remarks Josh embeds along the way). I have a strong feeling I’ll never forget this: there is a vast amount of Nothing out there, even in our solar system.

    Yeah, I haven’t been able to log in from comments for at least a couple of months. I just figured it was microcrap f*****g with ME.

    Tallulah @ #5:

    Good find. Here is one of my favorites on the topic of the scale of the universe.

    Are you receiving me?

    NSA, do you want me to say that louder?

    I build WordPress sites all day long. It’s my day job. If you need a hand, let me know — BC’ll vouch for me, I’m sure. Fucker lives right down the street anyway.

    I was aware that the login from comments wasn’t working. Also aware that the edit function didn’t work either….and that for me is a good thing, I am a lousy typist and have a tendency to speak or post before measuring my words, so not having an edit function forces me to proofread my words and also think about what I am about to say, not bad things to do I guess.. :em03:

    what you obviously need is some Funemployment time, so you can get to those things you want to do…

    now, aren’t you glad we passed the ACA, so you’d still have insurance while you pursue your dream?

    This is my comment. There are many like it but this one is mine.

    LC Xealot @ #:

    I’d vouch for Xealot, but the bastard refuses to come over and drink beer around the fire in the backyard. Until then, I’m not so sure of his character…

    Thanks, all. 🙂

    To think there used to be a time when I knew every single nut and bolt of this site. Well, that’s my own fault for being too lazy to keep up.

    I’ve been thinking about going back to a much simpler design. Same look, but simpler. Mainly because with WordPress updating more often than Adobe Flashplayer and a lot of the really nice bells and whistles on this site that I like a LOT requiring massaging and tweaking to work with WP’s latest iteration (as opposed to the vital, VITAL update they posted previously, as in approximately 20 minutes ago), it’s just too much work. Especially when you’re a busy and lazy bastard Imperator like myself.

    And I can’t very well keep expecting others to keep spending hours upon hours 24/7 keeping the wheels spinning and the gears ticking.

    Part of me just wants to shove up a basic WP template and load the DBs into it, but that fucker is so ugly it makes you want to cry. But that’s how bad it is. First I need to figure out where everything is, though. Argh…

    Seems ok, or not.

    I can’t log in from the comment thread, but as long as I do it from the upper left hand corner of the page, it works.

    Likewise for me. Not a major upscuddle, all things considered.
