No, the blog isn’t dead…

… but I wouldn’t blame you for thinking so. Yeah, it’s been a year and half since my last post, and even that one was an automated one. Then the plugin that archiving my Twitter posts changed (I’ll say broke, but the developer would probably disagree) and, well… it all fell apart from there.

All that said, I’ve been meaning to add some more long-form content beyond what social media allows, and I happen to have a bit more discretionary time than I used to recently. Social media posts are usually faster and easier, but it’s always difficult confining myself to 140 characters (give or take). We’ll see what happens.

For those who need a more immediate fix for what’s been going on in my life (you voyeuristic perverts, you), I’d suggest my various social media feeds. I have personal Twitter and Google+ accounts, while GPF has its own Twitter feed and Google+ page. There’s a Facebook page as well for the comic; only close friends get added to my personal FB account. I may eventually get pulled kicking and screaming into other social sites as well, but if I ever do, you can check the GPF Contacts page for the links.

  • The GPF site was down briefly this morning. It should be back up now. I haven't had time to diagnose the problem yet. #

  • Dear UPS: How exactly is sending my incoming package to a distribution center 60 miles away then to another 200+ miles away "efficient"? #

  • Grrr… Network config on my main GPF laptop is munged. DHCP gives it a valid IP but can't reach beyond localhost. Stumped on fixing it. >:( #
  • No, me, don't follow that link to Star Trek's Memory Alpha! You KNOW it's a bottomless pit of time sink you can't escape! Don't you… dang. #
  • Since when did Microsoft start pushing Skype updates through Windows Update? I guess it's not unexpected, but still… I didn't expect it. #
  • I have found that I start far too many sentences with "that said". That said, it's usually in the appropriate context. #

  • Not quite NaNoWriYear: This year's GPF script doc is already past 30k words & might top the previous two (32k & 33k respectively). #
  • From spam-fighting tool options: "Only paranoids and delusional users disable javascript." Only gullible folks rely on JavaScript for safety #
  • I think I just accomplished not one but THREE boring & mundane government beuracratic tasks today… with both speed & efficiency. [Faints] #

  • Taking the boy to his first baseball game today. (That's the one where they put the puck through the hoop to score a touchdown, right?) #
  • Ball game over. Our team won with a sudden death free throw into the end zone for a spare. The boy had a blast. Never did see that zamboni. #
  • Congrats to JPL on the successful Curiosity landing. Wish I could have watched live, but some folks on the US East Coast have to work. :P #
  • One of the few TV opening credits I'll never fast forward through is Star Trek: DS9. I may not always watch it, but I'll ALWAYS listen. #
  • Rest in pieces, SCO. Good riddance. http://t.co/gsPoauqz #
