Woho! First post on the “new” server!
“New” in quotes since it’s actually Temeryx, my old faithful G4/450 that’s been pressed into service as a web host. Hopefully it’ll be studly enough to handle Movable Type.
Big thanks to Joe for letting me tap in to his DSL line.
The migration from the old box turned out to be much more of a pain in the rear than expected, but–knock on wood–I’ve worked out most of the issues at this point, apart from MT-Blacklist eating itself. And unfortunately, with the state of comment spam being what it is, you pretty much have to run MT-Blacklist with Movable Type, so it’s a bit of a bummer.
Good things should be ahead now, since I finally have a host on which I’m root to fiddle around.
Onward and upward.
UPDATE: For some reason, had to go completely medieval on the current MT-Blacklist install in order to reset whatever was the cause of the horking. All seems well now.

Another book roundup, including some stellar athletes and soldiers, what might be the most jaded, soul-weary protagonist ever, and some grimdark fantasy.
The Internet is getting creepy, and Nic is breaking out his tinfoil hat after newspaper paywalls push him over the edge.
Nic is tired of tech sites obsessing over Apple’s financials and business strategy. So very tired.
Nic reads a book about the processed food industry and is incensed.
Computers are complicated. This brings out the irrational in people.
Nic proposes the loan word Rechthaberei be incorporated into American English.
The Core Dump is back! Books were read during the hiatus. Includes The Coldest Winter, Oh, Myyy!, Tough Sh*t, The Revolution Was Televised, The Rook, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Gun Machine, Fortress Frontier, Standing in Another Man’s Grave, and The Memory of Light.
This site will return in February.
From a true patriot to a world-weary detective, a dead god, and a civilization about to sublime from the galaxy, this book roundup spans the gamut. Includes Where Men Win Glory, Wild, Inside the Box, The Black Box, Three Parts Dead, Red Country, and The Hydrogen Sonata.
Springsteen gives a concert in Phoenix. It’s fantastic.
