It seems like godaddy screwed up, it forgot about the server IP!

Was fidling around for a while on the server with nothing wrong, weird.

This is what happened, domain renewal broke it somehow:

I was both worried and bored.

This time I ended up with a band of roaming cannibals in the wilderness. There weren’t any people around so we just ate granola, but it was awful — some kind of off brand.

That reminds me!

Was watching some apocalyptic show and there was this weird house of friendly people. My first instinct was "there's no way people are that friendly in a fucking apocalypse. If people are that friendly with random strangers, it's because they see their next meal."

Welp. It was a cannibal cult.

Thank you, TC. I was just getting ready to call you.


I thought the FEDs were investigating us.

hood, you should have watched the one about the four-year-old that went to heaven while he was being operated on.

He didn't die on the operating table or anything he just went there where he met his great-granddaddy and Jesus himself.

In the end, there was a girl on the other side of the earth that had a similar experience who painted a picture of Jesus.

The little boy was having trouble describing Jesus. When he saw the picture in the paper he told his dad, that's what he looks like.


At my age, it was very uplifting. :)

I was very worried (and bored to death) and needed answers. My best theory was that Turtlecrawler had taken the HUNDREDS of dollar we donated to upgrade the server and retired in the Congo as a ”king”. Lacking credible sources, I could only assume that Turtlecrawler had arrived safely in the Congo but then gotten kidnapped, raped and subsequentlly died of AIDS.

Interestingly (true story) my first theory involved cannibals in the Congo. But it just did not seem as plausible.

I spent the whole weekend clicking the reload button and thinking about to end my life on monday if the site wasn’t up by then. Thanks for fixing it. You saved my life.

You didn't even have a half-Mexican with you to eat first?

I took some self-footage of myself during the downtime:

Thanks for restoring my grasp on sanity.

That sounds like the Walking Dead "Terminus" episode! :D

Well, terminus wasn't a house though, he wouldn't mistake a train station for a house. I was thinking of Book of Eli, I believe they run into a house of cannibals.

I would've said The Road... but those cannibals weren't friendly...
