Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

Man, They Grow Up So Fast!

Hey, all — just a quick note with the skinny on some changes around here. The scoop. The striaght dope. The scuttlebutt, if you will.

(And you will, because that’s a damned easy way to get the Word of the Day out of the way. Don’t hate me because I’m lazy.)

Anyway, here are just a few of the many delectable changes I’ve made for you, my adoring fans.

(You not-so-adoring fans are out of luck. Don’t even think about trying out the new shit if you don’t adore me, dammit. Adore me!)

Ahem. Sorry. Here’s the list:

  • This site is now a ‘Klip Joint. (Yes, I made that up all by myself. And yes, I stayed awake all last night doing it. Smartass.) Anyway, you can now get your daily dose of hilarity as a ‘Klip‘. Essentially — and as far as my severely-limited brain understands it — you can download a little program called a KlipFolio, which will sit on your desktop. You then configure it to auto-download and track all sorts of news channels, and weather updates, and (*nudge nudge wink wink*) your very most favoritest weblogs. Seems like a cool idea to me, so I’m on the bandwagon. Go try it out, and then subscribe to my Klip. Come on — all the cool blog readers are doing it.
  • I’ve also added a search feature, brought to us by our good friends at Atomz. You can use it to find all the hilarious crap you’ve missed — not just from the main blog, but from the 100 Things, as well. What could be cooler? Want to know how many times I’ve used ‘assbag‘ in posts? (Um, three, so far, and all in the same week. Well, now four, I guess. Fun!) Looking for that post about the “Wheel of Fortune”? Or maybe you’re just curious just how many times I’ve typed in fuck. (Answer: a lot. Fuck.) Anyway, search away. That’s what it’s there for.
  • I finally also made my ‘Friendly Folks’ list of blogs a proper blogroll. So now, you’ll see little stars light up by their names when they update. So go see. They’re all nice people. They’ll only bite if you promise to bite back.

So, that’s about it. Sorry to interrupt the zanery around here, but I thought you ought to know what you’re dealing with. This shit is high-falutin’-tech, folks. And leaning further and further that way, too. I’ll be working on building a better RSS feed next, and re-templatizing my non-main blog pages, like the ‘about’ pages, and the 100 Things. And if none of that last bit meant anything to you — don’t worry! It’s all behind-the-scenes crap.

(You might notice the RSS thing if you subscribe to my Klip, or some other service that picks up the RSS feed — right now, it’s pretty crappy and generic. It’s the Yugo of RSS feeds, or maybe one of the Olsen twins. I’m not going to go overboard futzing with it — I just want to bring it into the twenty-first century. You know, make it a Nissan, or an Alicia Silverstone. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it should at least have some ‘oomph‘. And be nice to look at.)

So that’s it — check out the Klip thingamadoodad, and search away, folks. Hey, and I get reports on which searches are being done, and how many get entered. So hop to it, dammit. I wanna see lots and lots of crazy queries, all right? This shit didn’t read itself the first time around, and it ain’t getting any funnier just sitting around in the archives. Go get it.
