Address change

The URL for this blog has changed. It used to be esoterically.net/weblog. Now it’s just esoterically.net. We dropped the ‘weblog’.

So, if you have us linked on your site or bookmarked as a favorite, well… first of all thank you very much! Second, please update your link or bookmark.

Thank you. Hasta luego.

Len adds: This blog was updated to Dreamhost’s DreamPress over the weekend. It was a difficult couple of days but I think the transition is complete. Hopefully, we’ll see an improvement in performance. Please let me know if you notice any problems. This service is not cheap so I need to know if it’s really worth it.

Entrecard 101

Entrecard is currently running a promotion whereby you can earn 5,000 free credits just for posting a review of their service, so…

I have been involved in Entrecard practically since the service began. There have been several changes since then (including a change in ownership), but it is still a great way to promote your blog, see some new blogs that you likely would never have otherwise seen and gain some new friends (or antagonists). So check it out. You may be glad you did.

Top Droppers Day

Today is Top Droppers Day at Entrecard. It is the day you are supposed to create a post on your blog listing and thanking the top ten droppers to your blog for the month just ending. However, I didn’t think it quite fair to cut the list off at ten since at least twenty folks have dropped their card on mine every day this month. So here are those twenty. Good folks these… pay them a visit why don’t you?

Once again, my thanks to all these fine folks. Remember, our Top Twenty Droppers are always tracked in real time in the column to your left.
 

Downtime

My apologies for the downtime today. This site was inaccessible for five hours today. It was the fault of my webhost, DreamHost. I have been their customer for the past six and a half years, but their service this year has been deteriorating rapidly. I do not recommend DreamHost. I am definitely in the market for a new webhost. Hopefully I will not lose the past six and a half years of this blog in the process.

Again, though I had no control, I do apologize for today’s downtime.

And… though others are making a big deal of it, I really do not care that Johnny McCain got all irritable and sarcastic during his interview with the editorial board of The Des Moines Register today. He’s a grumpy, irritable and sarcastic old man. What did they expect, chocolates and roses?

P.S. Speaking of downtime… (this stuff just writes itself)…

UPDATE: I’m kind of leaning toward bluehost. Anybody have any experience with them?

Faces

This site uses gravatars.

A gravatar, or globally recognized avatar, is quite simply an 80×80 pixel avatar image that follows you from weblog to weblog appearing beside your name when you comment on gravatar enabled sites.

If you do not have a gravatar, we’ll make a face for you. For that, we use wavatars (only with funky faces).

So… you can either have a gravatar or a wavatar; the choice is yours. But, if you never comment, you’re not getting either.

Clear enough?

This weblog was updated to version 2.3 of WordPress yesterday. Everything appears to be working. Please report any problems you may encounter.

There was one snag… the poll program we were using does not appear to be compatible with the new version. It had to be replaced. So if you previously voted in our poll, please vote again.

Thanks. We now return you our regularly scheduled programming.

Congratulations, Kos

“There is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary.” — Brendan Behan, Irish author and dramatist (1923-1964)

Congratulations to Daily Kos! You really cannot buy publicity like this.
