Yeah, I'm Here

Basically, I had to make a decision between fixing my teeth and paying for my website, so I'm back on the blogger train.

Now, if I could just remember how this works . . . 

55 comments:

  1. (formerly Firefly Pulse)

    Sorry to hear that you had to deploy a bit of the ol' ruthless pragmatism. Trust me, I can empathize.

  2. Yeah, that's an easy choice. Though it's not easy having to choose. Best of luck with both the teeth.

    Minor tangent, but it seems many of my old internet spots are being shaken up recently. This, the old slacktiverse having gone of the deep end (that one's less recent I suppose, I haven't been there in a while, but it was my portal to here, FormerCon and Ana), Ana's recent post and last but not least Spoony going down in flames fueled by what appears to be depression-induced twitter tirades.

    Also, which of these profiles lets me post under my usual alias with the least amount of fuzz? My google-id tends to use my real name, and I prefer not to.

  3. Good luck with the teeth, PF!

    @Ivan -- What's the Spoony drama? I love his reviews, but don't follow Twitter at all.

  4. Glad to know you're still posting, at least. Sorry you had to sacrifice the other site.

  5. @rubytea: Neither do I, so I didn't hear of it until ThatGuyWithTheGlasses posted an announcement that Spoony and TGWTG were parting ways. All very politely written, but so lacking in details that it heavily suggested something nasty. After a quick look around the internet, that does seem to be the case. It's a bit hard to reconstruct the exact timeline, never mind filter out the bias of the different posts on the subject eager to blame one side or the the other for everything.

    TW: Rape-joke, depression, suicide

    But the two leading points I hear are Spoony allegedly misbehaving at E3, which may have caused others affiliated with TGWTG to be denied interviews with developers, and a twitter rape-joke by Spoony directed at JesuOtaku. This lead to a temporary suspension, during which Spoony continued with tirades on twitter, including on people trying to calm everyone down, which resulted in him getting fired.

    I can't vouch for every detail here, but all in all it looks like a mess. The rape-joke tweet at least is real, and the anger at it from Obscurus Lupa is valid. Sadly, Spoony has frequently suffered from depression, which I think is an important contribution to perhaps not the tweet itself but probably to the outburst against people calling him on it. And LordKat apparently saying Spoony should just commit suicide isn't helping matters in the slightest.

    I really hope his brother or someone can convince him to calm down and maybe seek some help. He was a legitimately funny entertainer and, when he was just being himself in his counter-monkey videos he seemed like an okay guy. But I also fear Obscurus Lupa is going to get a lot of shit from Spoony's fanbase, whom Spoony himself in his more stable days frequently told to calm the hell down already. I've already seen posts pointing at Obscurus Lupa as the evil harpy who brought up a month-old tweet to get Spoony fired. I'm hoping the moderators at her videos are standing by with the banhammers, we'll probably need them.

  6. Welcome back, PF. We love you.

  7. So that's why I was getting a "this site does not exist" message the other day. Good to know you're okay.

    @Ivan - I use openID, but it does involve entering my handle in one popup and then my password in another, so it's probably not the simplest option.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Well, if you really dislike Blogger, you could try wordpress.com instead. (Wordpress.org is the software site; wordpress.com is free blog hosting).


    BTW, Inquisitive Raven here. Though you could probably figure that out from my avatar.

    ReplyDelete
  9. A great big hug to both you and Uzza (without whom I probably wouldn’t have thought to check back here). Definitely missed you these last couple days, and glad to hear you’re back and all right. :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I sympathise with you PF. Paying the tooth-fairies can get ruinously expensive. It's totally a protection racket: goddamn glittery winged twits all work for the mob, you know. But what can you do?

    And yeah, I'll second Inquisitive Ravens comment: Wordpress.com is where I'm running my blog, and it's been great. I'm kind of surprised they won't let you just drop foreverinhell.com back to foreverinhell.wordpress.com, actually...

    Cheers,
    Quasar

  11. Thanks about the profile suggestions, but once I posted I saw only my first name shows up. That's fine. I think one time when I accidentally used my google account to post at Ana's site it gave my last name too, and I prefer not to do so. But it doesn't happen here, so I'm cool.

    ReplyDelete
  12. So glad----I was starting to get worried. Teeth are expensive, and unless you have bajillions of dollars to afford implants, you only have one set. Love to you and hubby & Bo.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Glad I found you again. Yeah, dentistry is outrageously expensive. Even with great dental insurance, I had to put up nearly 2000 a few years ago to have my wisdom teeth out.

    An honest audit of where this money is going needs to be done. I swear that the dental profession is a huge conspiracy.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Well, as long as you're bloody ~somewhere~!

    I'm sorry. Money is just... I won't even start.

    I'm glad Blogger is able to set back up here, though. (I mean, not that this domain ever went away, but you know what I mean.)

  15. Hey PF,

    So sorry to bother you with this, but I was hoping I could ask you a little favor in your capacity as a legal secretary. There’s this litigious twit who’s threatening to sue me over claims that I ripped off an article of his and tried to pass it off as my own – when in reality, I quoted a few paragraphs and linked back to his post, as per Internet custom (and Fair Use). If you ever have a few minutes to spare, could you please come over here [http://preliatorcausa.blogspot.com/2012/06/in-which-i-am-vaguely-threatened-with-a-bogus-copyright-claim-3612.html] and let me know if there’s any validity to his claims?

    Again, sorry for bugging you with this, but I honestly don’t know who else to ask. Everyone else tells me I’m in the clear, so I was hoping your experience might come in handy. Just thought I would ask.

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Okay, last comment here, I promise. :P I just thought I’d offer my name (in my capacity as a pretty decent Blogger template formatter) if you ever want any help to refurbish this place and make it as nice and shiny as your now-yet-hopefully-temporarily-defunct domain, like with your custom top banner and so on. For your consideration. *bows*

  17. Glad to see you've set up shop. I can't wait for your next installment of Deconstructing Elsie Dinsmore!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I was getting worried there for a bit! Glad to see you've been able to find a new location elsewhere on the shores of the intarwebz. =)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Missed the weekend dog blogging and the Deconstruction of Elsie Dinsmore. Can we at least get a report on how the dental work went?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sorry that you had to choose, but I am SOOO glad you are still around. I've followed your blog for about a year now, and was devestated when the other website came up as "poof, nothing here!"
    Good luck with the teeth.
    ~Mac

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm glad you're OK, teeth notwithstanding.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Glad I find this too. When the site disappeared, I was imaging all kinds of dire things that had happened.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Will the Elsie Dinsmore deconstructions continue?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Please come back soon – and be okay. *hugs*

    ReplyDelete
  25. Really miss your blog. Please start adding new posts (especially Elsie ones!!!) even if you have to do it here. Open a kickstarter-I know I would contribute, and am willing to bet there are a lot of othrs wh would, too. Even faceblech notes would be better than no foreverinhell!

    ReplyDelete
  26. And in other news, have you heard that Dennis Markuze is apparently violating the terms of his parole? Yep, he's spamming atheist blogs again. Either he's off his meds or they aren't working for him anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't know if this will help, but it may get you past the opening pangs of dealing with the Blogger update.

Comments are for you guys, not for me. Say what you will. Don't feel compelled to stay on topic, I enjoy it when comments enter Tangentville or veer off into Non Sequitur Town. Just keep it polite, okay?

I am attempting to use blogger's new comment spam feature. If you don't immediately see your comment, it is being held in spam, I will get it out next time I check the filter. Unless you are Dennis Markuze, in which case you're never seeing your comment.
