And NOW I noticed a whole new group — err – trio of commenters. New home plug:
dgood1.typepad.com
Same guy, less bitterness (not that I was ever bitter in the first place … I just ripped off the name of a Soul Coughing song … and it wasn’t even one of my favorites!).
Typepad lured me away with their Journalist Bailout Program, which offered me free Pro membership — with ads — for free, if I could just prove i was a pitiful, livelihood-threatened journalist. They did require a usable link to some of my dinosaur-media copy posted online, so you can’t con your way into this sweet gig easily.
I work for a newspaper (you know, the OTHER industry losing money hand over fist, with leaders teetering toward bankruptcy). Six-Apart felt sorry for me, and actually lent a hand; with that, they earned my eternal allegiance.
Wordpress is kinda dead to me now. So if you’ve commented, and not been replied, or visited and lamented the lack of fresh content (not that I actually believe anyone gave enough of a fuck to do any of that), but if you have, visit me at my new digs:
dgood1.typepad.com
I’ll come back later and hyperlink all this.

I moved again, to dgood1.typepad.com

reunited and it feels so good

My main computer — a frankenstein’s monster of a desktop — is finally back in action. For months now, I’ve been using one of three worn out, outdated laptops (whichever one was fully functional at the time). I had almost forgotten what Windows XP looked like, since the newest OS the laptops would handle was Millennium Edition.
But now, Prime and I have been reunited, after my father and I finally cut enough time out of our busy schedules to get it up and running again.
I’d almost forgotten how nice my dedicated desk-space was; being able to sit down and get to work right away, without first clearing the coffee table of sippie-cups and bills, is vastly underrated.

Government intervention never helps in the long run. It might alleviate a few small pains for the ‘little people,’ but the actual cause of their miseries still fester, and are often made worse.

Just to be safe, the cached Sarah Palin wiki entry

Now that she’s been announced as the Republican nominee for vice president, I imagine the moonbat “editors” at Wikipedia will begin scrubbing anything positive out of her entry. So here’s a link to the cached version, via Google.
