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!

Well, That’ll Teach Me to Tinker!

Hey, folks. Just me. The boob-headed wonder.

See, in my flurry of improvements and additions that I mentioned in the last post, it seems I got a bit careless. Maybe I reloaded when I should have resubmitted. Or control-alt-backspaced when I should have shift-tab-deleted. Something like that. Anyway, the upshot is that late this morning, as I was adding a new webring to the main template (I’ll let you figure out which one), I apparently futzed the file, so that ninety percent of it or so got chopped off. Eaten. Lost.

And the upshot of that was that for the last eight hours or so, all anyone coming to the site would see is a blank page, with one yellowish, barely visible header. No witty banter. No compelling stories. And no nasty dildo jokes.

(Okay, so only one of those things ever existed on the site. Fine. Look, I never said this was Shakespeare, people. Cut me some slack.)

Anyway, I finally noticed the problem, and I think it’s fixed now. At least, it must be fixed now, if you’re reading this. Otherwise, I’m just talking to myself, and you’re delusionally pretending to be reading a new post. Which means we’re both fucked. So I prefer answer A, where everything is fine again, and we can both go back to pretending we’re sane. Or some facsimile thereof.

So, there you go. Apologies for any inconvenience this little glitch may have caused — I sincerely hope you won’t hold it against me. I gotta run to catch a comedy show now, but I’ll be back later with all sorts of material that I stole from the people onstage.

(Just kidding, just kidding. All the booberage you read here is purely my own. Except for the new Simpsons stuff. And a couple of guest posts. And I modified the site layout from someone else’s, and… damn! I didn’t expect the Spanish Inquisition!

Okay, that’s stolen, too. Look, just let me slink out of here before I do any more damage, all right? Apparently, it’s not my day. I could never get the hang of… damn. I did it again. I’m Audi.)

    I cry pooey. Because of you, I was actually productive after class today ;P And here I thought my virus unleashed upon the school’s computers had really fucked them up. Anyways, I’m glad to see that you fixed things up in a timely manner

    At least you fixed your tinkering..I accidentally deleted my entire blog with one click. Yep! Gone. Kaput! Not recoverable, as far as I know. (I did get 3 items from Google’s cache. That’s it.) All I was intending to do was to delete a test blog. Guess I clicked the wrong button. I want a re-do!!
