100% true stupid.
Category: Miscellany

Somehow I ended up staying up all night and doing absolutely nothing. But I did turn on part of Maury...anyone wanna guess what it was about? 😛 Today they put a twist on it, though -- there was one woman who literally had to have 20+ men tested to find her "baby daddy". And you know what? I'm pretty sure they didn't find him.

Yep, go ahead and say it with me. "Bloody hell." (more...)

First of all -- if you're having trouble viewing images, here or on SC, please send me an e-mail and let me know about it (replacing the "-at-" with "@" and removing the spaces, of course). I've been having a lot of trouble with people remote linking the images, which wouldn't be that much of a problem if they weren't doing it on forums and using the images in their signature files and as avatars. Forums get a lot of views a day, and it's really been a drain on the bandwidth -- for the month of February, SC is already up to 630 MB in traffic, and we only average about 150 unique visitors a day (most of whom only view one page). So I've implemented a script to disallow remote image linking, but depending on your browser it may not be as successful. If it doesn't work, try reloading the page -- there could be problems caused by your cache -- and if that doesn't work e-mail me to let me know, and tell me your OS and browser while you're at it. And if you want to drop a line to say, "Hey, Wes -- just wanted to let you know everything's a-okay for me!" feel free to do that too. (more...)

Fallout shelter
Category: Miscellany

The first part of this morning post comes to you courtesy of Matt of X-Entertainment, who in the X-E blog has posted a "poll" of sorts (it's not really a poll; more like a question, really), asking readers what they would take with them in the event that disaster struck and they were forced to retreat into a fallout shelter of their own design. My answer to the question is below, in its entirety: (more...)

So I read this story...
Category: Miscellany

Nothing really new to add, except look for the debut of a new SC ongoing feature really soon. Like maybe later today, maybe Monday. Soon. I'll keep you posted.

Tonight's post is courtesy of Hannah, who also has a link now in the sidebar. In a blog post today she referred readers to "Kafka in Bronteland", a short story by Tamar Yellin. If you've got the time, give it a look and let me know what you think -- I'd be really curious to hear what you've got to say about it. (more...)
