    I’ve spent the last hour or so looking through old un-categorized blog posts for a couple of chapters of some fiction I wrote a few years back. They should be either here or at skullfuckin but for the life of me I can’t find them. Damn. If any of you run across them shoot me a line. You’ll know them by the crappy writing :)

    I was thinking about adding to them but now I would have to recreate them so I just don’t know if I will or not. I know that I could write successfully but then the laziness kicks in. Heh.

    As I mentioned in that last quick post yesterday evening, I experienced a bit of downtime on all of my sites. Apparently one of the WordPress plugins I was using had thrown a monkey wrench into the gears and I was using a crapload of CPU. My provider contacted me about it so I made a cursory examination and inactivated a few plugins but didn’t do a very thorough job of it. Personally I think it was the syndication plugin I was using to pull blog posts from my other two sites into this one. Long story short they suspended my account and I just didn’t give enough of a shit about it to fix the problem until yesterday.

    I had considered just canceling my account and redirecting all of the URLs to my Google+ or Facebook pages but for some reason I never got around to it.

    I have since decided that I do want to keep the blogs online. Don’t know if I will continue to blog or not but I’ve been doing it so long it would be a shame to get rid of it all.

    In the wake of all the bullshit surrounding the OWS and the 99%ers I realized on my last bi-yearly visit that my tagline was misleading and felt the need to share a little bit about what it is and why it has nothing to do with the protesters.

    While I may be part of that 99% in fact AND I believe that some of the stuff being protested is a good thing I am not a supporter. Just as the Tea Party has moved away from it’s grass roots and way off into right wing lunacy so the OWS has done the same thing just in the opposite direction. I would hate to be identified with either fucking group.

    Anyway, politics aside the tagline at the top of the blog has nothing whatsoever to do with them.

    Once up0n a time there was a blogger named Rob Smith (Acidman). I was an avid reader at his site and while I had been running my original site (Shadowscope, now just an aggregator <sp?> for all my sites) for five years prior to that he was one of the people that I looked up to in blogging. Once I saw what that whole blogging thing was about (sometime in 2003) I moved away from manually updating a web page on a daily basis to something a little closer to what it is now.

    Getting to the point….

    In 2005 Rob posted this little gem,

    A lot of blogs are personal journals and about 99% of them are pure bullshit. But some can remain personal and still be entertaining.

    Fucking perfect and that is the 99% I consider myself a part of.

    So up until the previous Wordless Wednesday post I put up a few minutes ago this is the first time I’ve blogged since April.

    April?

    Holy Shit.

    So why do I even bother to keep my site(s) online?

    Good question.

    I won’t even apologize for the lack of posting. That’s pretty fucking lame. Suffice it to say that I have been busy with other pursuits. Work, work, occasional sleep, work…I think you get the picture. That and after twelve years of blogging it just hasn’t been quite as important.

    Twelve years. That seems sort of amazing to me and it’s one of the reasons I am online typing this right now. Quite a bit has changed for me over the last twelve years, both online as well as in real life.

    Originally I mainly wrote about techie stuff, mostly Windows customization. Then I started drifting into crime as well as personal updates. I drifted into the whole social media thing. Twitter and Facebook  as well as a few others. I used them along with about fifteen or twenty other sites mainly to promote my web sites but over the last couple of years Facebook and now Google+ have pretty much replaced the blog as the place to post my thoughts. It’s a hell of a lot easier to type out a 140 character soundbite to tell how I am doing than it is to actually put down what’s going through my head…

    I enjoy blogging though and while I may or may not continue to blog on any type of regular basis only time will tell. Don’t know about the crime blogging though. My crime site is still online and will most likely remain so since I still have advertising income coming in from that but I don’t know if I will return to it. I plan on at least putting out an update over there today but I don’t have any regular plans to update the site. Perhaps one of the folks that occasionally stop in will also put out a story or two. You never know. All total I have five different domains I still own (I let the other five lapse). This is one, the crime site is another and Shadowscope (my original blog) is still there too. I have it up to syndicate and pull in my posts from both sites because it’s been up so long. I also own a domain I used to put tech stuff online but am not currently using it or my daughter’s site which has also been pretty much abandoned.

    Whatever. So how about an update or two?

    I am unfortunately getting older every day and things that were important to me a decade ago no longer seem quite so important, having been supplanted by other new crap :)

    My son who I have posted about in the past finished his time in the Marine Corps and returned safely home to us in June. He is currently working for me until he starts school in January. He’ll be going to Columbia University in New York City. We are very excited about that. It’ll be a great experience for him as well as open a lot of doors. He’s considering getting his degree in Economics. We’ll see.

    The girls are busy as well. The youngest is right and my eldest daughter will be fourteen next month. Fuck, where does the time go. She’s involved in music and most likely this will be the path she will be taking. She plays in the band at the middle school but is also one of a few middle school students who get to play in the local high school’s marching band.

    Of course I am still doing the same old shit. I have been moved around to different stores several times and now have the exact same district I was running five years ago. Of course it’s in horrible shape so I get to spend the next six months getting shit right. I have pretty much quit wondering why some people in management don’t give a fuck enough about their job to actually do it as they are asked. It’s pointless. All I can do is go in and be an asshole and make whatever changes are needed to get things back in line. It’s going to hurt my paycheck for several months but in the end it’s the right thing to do.

    I had some other shit I wanted to write about but that train of thought has completely derailed by the ramen noodles my daughter just made. Guess it’s time to sign out.

    I will be switching this site as well as Shadowscope from Movabletype to WordPress shortly. I have run MT since 2002 or 2003 and while I really like the extensibility of it MT has become more of a pain in the ass than it’s worth. Comment spam has become overwhelming and the only way to keep from having it is to force people to sign up as members. For awhile I used Disqus as my commenting system as I do on Sick Crimes, but MT and Disqus don’t seem to play very well together, thus the fact that you couldn’t get to my posts for a while. My web provider basically refused to help out, just telling me I had to edit the php, which I don’t know shit about.

    That’s another story entirely but considering the fact that I pay them $350 a year to host my fucking sites the least they could do would be to fix the fucking problem. Instead I am forced to switch to a blog software that at least I know works very well. MT development is slow anyway and it’s difficult to get the plug-ins to work together at times. As much as I like Movabletype it’s only with a small bit of sadness that I dump it for something modern and useful.
