.htaccess crap, ebay and ENOUSAI, and SC needs a Super Turtle!
Category: Miscellany

Apologies to anyone who tried to visit the site between 8:30 PM and 10:30 PM tonight -- I was mucking around with the .htaccess file again to see if I couldn't set the log file not to record image requests. Sadly, that endeavor was a failure, but I did make it so that all people typing "scary-crayon.com" into their browsers get redirected to "www.scary-crayon.com", in addition to simplifying the image blocking script by a couple of lines. I can't figure out what went wrong with the log mods, though -- my guess is that the server won't let me mess with the log files, so all attempts to do so ended in error. After all, it won't let me delete them, so I can see why it wouldn't let me modify them. That really sucks. 🙁 (more...)

Happy Valentine’s Day!
Category: Miscellany

Okay, so I'm kind of late with this -- everyone's probably off at their romantic dinners by now, or huddled on the couch with a bottle of vodka and a stack of dvds -- but here's the official Valentine's Day entry. Yesterday's poem was relevant, but this is the genuine article, folks.

YOU 'DA MUTANT! Happy Valentine's Day! :)

Yep! Happy Valentine's Day to (in no particular order)... (more...)

A poem for Valentine’s Day!
Category: Miscellany

Okay, I promised a poem for Valentine's Day, so here we go -- I wrote this one in 2001 or so, I think, though I occasionally return to it and modify it slightly. "Railroad Spike" is based, in part, on the events of a flashback in the Buffy episode "Fool for Love", which aired during the fifth season, and it takes its title from the quote of one of the persons who, upon hearing Spike's poetry (before Spike became a vampire), remarked, "I'd rather have a railroad spike through my head than listen to that awful stuff!" (After being made a vampire, we can imagine that Spike did just that, for William, as he was known in life, earned the nickname "Spike" by torturing his victims with railroad spikes.) (more...)

Sigh.
Category: Miscellany

Okay, just a brief one. Things have been going pretty slowly on SC -- only 47 unique visits yesterday, a couple of which were probably me 🙁 -- so be sure to visit and give the content over there a look. (You can click here, or simply use the link at the top of the side menu.) I'm thinking the April piece will go up on Saturday evening, if not sooner. Sunday at the latest. (more...)

Not a good sign
Category: Serious

Yay, Dawn's mentioned/linked us again. 🙂 Unfortunately for those of you who've followed that link over, I don't have much in the way of new substantial content for you at the moment; I've promised myself that I won't write any more significant posts until I finish writing the short story that I'm currently working on. (But if you want to check out a recent substantial piece, try "For Hannah" and let me know what you think. Dawn enjoyed it, but it's also moved one person to discontinue speaking to me, and I haven't heard from Hannah since I posted it -- not a good sign. In any case, it's definitely getting mixed reviews...) (more...)
