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
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
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

Going to pin this post (if it lets me) so that folks can more easily find the links. You can access the BBS by using your telnet client and visiting telnet://bbs.shadowscope.com or telnet://shadowscope.noip.us If you want an EASY way to get to it from your web browser you can access it from this blog (best…Read more
Due to the severe weather that’s supposed to move through this evening and into overnight I will be taking down the BBS and any other internal servers for the evening. Depending on when the storm moves through it may be tomorrow evening before I come back online (Have to leave for work around 6ish.) The…Read more
Charter Spectrum apparently has an internet Outage in my area so the BBS and mailer are down until they get it fixed.
The BBS and Mailer will be down for just a little bit while I make a backup and upgrade to the latest alpha version of Mystic A45. Shouldn’t take long as it’s just a straight xcopy to another PC where I sync everything to a dropbox folder.
