Journal: Back from exile

Journal by Platinum Dragon

I've chosen to return from my self-imposed Slashdot exile of... *checks date of last post*... two months, nineteen days.

I don't have high hopes for an improvement in editorial quality, but I'm willing to give this site another chance.

The next step, if things prove to have stagnated or degenerated even more, will be a pointed e-mail to Taco's bosses and a much longer period of non-visitation.

Journal: Taco, what did you break?

Journal by Platinum Dragon

Today, I'm being hit by the supposedly Gecko-only Slashdot layout problem, where the middle column will appear slightly under the left column. This has happened on rare occasions in the past, but is happening consistently since I fired up the browser a bit after noon EST. Neither Mozilla nor Galeon have been updated on this box in weeks.

I've always suspected that this was more of a crappy Slashcode problem than a Gecko problem.

Smooth move, Ex-Lax.

Journal: Giving in

Journal by Platinum Dragon

I've given in and joined the weblogging fad. Go ahead, shower your scorn and your rotten tomatoes upon me. Matter no more it does, hmmm?

Check out my random neural firings, a house of intellectual masturbation and technological pretension. Whee.

Maybe I should do something to make this journal the comment section.

Fnord.

Update: Maybe I should make sure that I haven't broken the script first. Duh.

If anyone knows how to deal with the weird box-stretching issues along the left side under Internet Explorer, let me know. I'm not sure whether the use of lists is causing the problem or what, but the whole thing renders just peachy under Mozilla-based browsers.

Journal: Seeking out new life and new civilizations 1

Journal by Platinum Dragon

It seems there are a bunch of people around this here pile of hacked-together Perl scripts that have been moved enough by things I've posted to mark me down as either a friend or a foe.

In the interests of human communication and filling my mailbox with something other than Brazilian spam, could some of y'all toss me an e-mail just to say "hello" sometime? I'm curious about the people who've taken notice of my existence, fans and freaks all. I know a couple of you over various forms of electronic communication already (hi afxgrin, Boy Plankton, any others whose nicks I should recognize but don't).

ObLifeUpdate:

I'm going to apply for a job I probably have no chance in hell of getting. It's not like I have anything to lose.

Whee.

Journal: Stupid trollish moderators

How the fuck is this "Offtopic"?

T-shirt and chant at a tuition-freeze rally in Toronto: "George Bush is the Real Terrorist." When you continue funding the CIA and SOA (oh, excuse me, WHISC), I'd say that qualifies as supporting terrorist organizations. I think only a person that believes the ends justify the means would completely disagree.

Journal: What the hell?

What's this shit? Slashdot hopping on the weblog bandwagon? Yeesh - now I can waste kB's of space with my own crap on Malda's precious colo space. Phun.

Phone calls need to be made, but will put them off until tomorrow. Why do today what you can do later?

Not that I update shit much anyway. I really do need to put a new rant on my rant page.

Still restoring .ogg collection from the Great MP3 Wipe. Next up; Pantera, Far Beyond Driven. Good friends and a bottle of pills...

Ummmm.... hi mom, hi teresa, dunno why I'm getting involved in this shit at all... uhhhh.... right.
