LiveJournal likes to remind me how long I’ve been around, if you’re reading this on my LiveJournal then you’ll have seen this twice. Sorry not sorry.
The recent election is what we all kind of expected, Brexit was just the test the Conservatives to see how much lying they could get away with and still manage a win. If anything the cover photo says it all, in BoJo’s riding they had a choice of a bunch of fucking clowns and a labour candidate, they went for the biggest clown they could find. 👏
Then we have the bizarre world of « I can’t really stand Corbyn, so I voted Con » lot, which in itself is counterproductive, but hey, you do you.
Either way, I’m not going to dedicate an entire post to this consortium of shit fuckery, because I’d just be repeating what everybody else has been saying and that clearly falls on deaf ears. That and some bot will probably start attacking my blog, the usual things that happen when people don’t agree with you online. 🤷♂️
Side note : Grammarly seems to think this post is « optimistic », I think your AI is fucked chaps.
In actual optimistic news though, other than the Great Strike of 2019 griding France to a halt, I have got an upgrade on my internet. 10GB fibre, which has been so amazing. Granted I didn’t realise you had to request a specific IP type from my provider and I panicked a little when my Freebox started to refuse to let me use certain ports. But it was pretty easy to fix, it seems like a pretty solid security patch for those who have no idea what they’re doing from causing havoc in the IP range.
Another update on the news front is that oddly enough I managed to grab I domain I didn’t expect, I was trying to register something else, but Autocorrect did its thing. I went through the checkout and setup without even clocking it.
So here I am right now the proud owner of eu.sb 🇪🇺😂 I can’t say that I’m upset about this moment, but it for once autocorrect didn’t duck something up badly.
Yesterday I finally got most of my adulting things out of the way, getting keys copied, a hair cut, followed by giving up going to the shop and ordering food online. I feel that this could have been the top point of being an adult, I have peaked everybody. Incidentally, I had a bit of a shock when I realised I’m 2 years older than I remembered. Oops.
I guess I’ll finalise this post off with a shameless ad.
bbs.yt, ec.gy, frankenserver.eu, mono.mx, uun.nz, and zigs.eu are being shared via Free DNS, a dynamic DNS domain sharing project where members can setup, and administrate their DNS entries on their own remote internet-connected systems in real-time. You can register your own subdomains at ec.je/public/freedns/default.wct.
Also, if anybody actually still reads this blog I’d be interested if you dropped a comment in the comments, I might put it on my life plan to update more often if there are still lurkers.
I have done a few jigs and changes over this evening to this site, since I’m currently in the process of really resmashing ec.je in to something else. With that it means most of the links there are now dead as I’m doing all of this.
You might have noticed that the reCaptcha icon is now irritatingly everywhere, I’m not sure how to turn it off, but it’s because the contact form is back in place. I’ve also remade the about page here, there is a redirect on ec.je over to this site.
For now it seems logical, and if you’re wondering, yes, that is indeed a copy paste job from my LiveJournal Profile, you know, since why not.
If anybody is wondering why the BBS is inaccessable right now, it’s because my internet is offline, I’ve been living the 3G life for the past few weeks and it’s not the dream.
Although there are other life changes that I will happily share later on 😀Ross Findon
I am now testing that this will make it over to LiveJournal.
Not like it makes a lot of difference, but I didn’t realise that my plugin to repost my entries on to Dreamwidth (who then reposts to LiveJournal, cos lol api) blocked comments.
That’s been fixed now, and I even dropped in a link to the comments page here.
I have managed to do two things in the last twenty four hours that I have been wanting to do forevers.
The first being, after many years of wanting to run my own version of the LiveJournal code, I finally got my shit together to do so. Granted, since LiveJournal has since dropped off the open source circuit, it’s a Dreamwidth install. But it’s forked off LiveJournal’s code.Lire la suite de « Oh mer gherd »
