Cutting the cheese since 1996

Where does the time go?

It never ceases to amaze me how fast time seems to fly by. It seems we spend our childhoods impatiently waiting to grow older, and adulthood futilely trying not to grow old.   Read More →

The plot thickens

I was only kidding when I titled the last post being about a mystery, but things seem to have spiraled out of control since then.   Read More →

A mystery wrapped up in an enigma with a dash of quandry

Hmm, looks like I'm averaging a post about every two weeks now. It's not that I've had nothing to say, I just haven't taken the time to say it. Then, when I do have the time, I either forget or decide it's not worth saying anymore.   Read More →

The big one's comin', 'Lizabeth!

I've been sitting on several posts for a couple weeks now because I've frankly been too lazy to sit and write anything. Instead of flooding the site with a bunch of small posts, I'm going to roll them all into one biggie. I expect to post it some time in the next couple of days.   Read More →

Welcome back,

It's been a tumultuous week or two, but after two hosts, two sites, a domain and an IP, several database iterations and some code tweaks, has finally come home to roost. I'm proud to say, the site is now official.   Read More →

Not dead, just feels like it

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything, but I came down sick last weekend and frankly, just haven't felt the urge to do it. I really hate the site getting stale, but sometimes other things come first.   Read More →

Um, season's tidings, I guess

Okay, so I haven't posted anything for a while. The first order of business is to wish everyone a belated merry Christmas and a happy New Year. There, I said it.   Read More →

Progress Report, part 2

Things are moving along nicely now. It's easier than ever for me to add entries, and the commenting system is complete. Now, bear in mind, none of this has been vigorously tested, but as far as I know everything is working. (Not withstanding how this post might look on the front page.)   Read More →

Will the real prostitute please stand up?

I'm not sure whether to file this under hypocrisy or stupidity or what. I signed up with an advertising affiliate network to place some banner ads on the site. Thinking I'm most willing to support advertisers who I myself have purchased from in the past, or who offer products or services that align with my own personal views, I applied to about a half-dozen dozen companies, all promising a "review" of my site.   Read More →

Progress Report

I guess it's only fair I give a little update as to what's been going on at First, you might have noticed we technically have two sites right now. We're in the process of switching hosts, so our old one still holds the DNS to "" while the new is available by IP only. But, I've been using this dichotomy as an excuse to revamp the new before it goes "live." So I've been rewriting the code from the ground up in ASP.NET (and what fun!) and trying to make sure everything works as it should.   Read More →
