RPG Dice Roller For Android

So I made a pretty simple dice roller for my android phone using Tasker. If you don’t know what Tasker is, it’s an all-around automation app. It’s been around for as long as I have been using Android phones I would guess. I’ve used it for years but have gotten really serious about it in…Read more

Hacked Again

One of the downsides of posting crime stories on top of the tech stuff is that some people (including Google apparently) count it as hate speech. I don’t know but it seems to make the site a target for getting hacked. It’s happened several times over the last few years, but I’ve gotten rather good…Read more

Updating Old Posts

As I am going through the older posts on here (and the ones that are still listed as private) I am slowly but surely trying to fix problems with formatting, grammar, missing information, and photographs. Each time I update a post, WordPress sends an email out like it was a new post. I’m not sure…Read more

DNS Issues for the BBS

As I have had my site here hosted with LivingDot for at least the last 15 years or so I just manage the DNS…Read more

Changed My Mind

Yesterday I posted that I was going to remove all of my crime posts, most of which were from 2005-2010 and I made them all private. Fuck those guys at Google. It will take a while but I am going to make them all public again. Don’t know if I will start blogging about crime…Read more

Pixel Watch – Two Weeks On

So, I received the Pixel Watch back on October 13th and figured I would post an update on it. I got the non-LTE version as I already have five lines on my mobile and don’t currently feel like I need the added capability that it provides. I’m never anywhere without my phone, and (I am…Read more

Post Removals

I know I have just killed 99% of my traffic. Google AdSense disabled my site from showing ads due to “sensitive content”. Unfortunately I guess all my old crime posts, and my foul language, did not meet their advertiser’s needs. I have temporarily made private all my crime posts. That was several thousand pages unfortunately….Read more
