    The more I think about this the more I wonder, am I another one of their projections? I've let myself be used like one of them for so long. Years. But it was in the purpose of our overall vision, or that's what I told myself. I'm starting to doubt that I even exist, at least any more than the others. Would I be cast aside? I don't want to disappear.

    thanks and / or sorry for letting me test the guestbook rollback censor. I probably shouldn't do this but I'm childish and I hate to lose.

    Fresh up in the deprecated section is a turbo HD remix of sillyputty. This was the original concept for the guestbook page, but built within the constraints of the web of 2004. With no HTML canvas or socket support in Firefox 1.0, things were much more limited in terms of functionality. The remastered version brings modern capabilities to the original concept and ditches the SQL injection vulnerabilities.

    Just turn off for awhile and see what happens. If you do feel the urge to check in, make sure it is to do something meaningful. Don't just let yourself fall passively into the void that is consuming today's internet.

    Freshly added is a DMCA Policy for the site. Personally I have issues with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, particularly Section 512, but this site complies with it.

    More broadly, copyright law in the U.S. has a ton of problems (and even more in Europe), but it needs reform, not some kind of anarchic overthrow. Copyright is the glue that holds Free Software together and makes copyleft licenses like The GNU General Public License enforceable.

    I might have more to say at some point in the future, but I've already gone toe-to-toe with copyright lobbyists in a past life, and those people are brutal. For now I'm going to limit the number of beehives I kick.

    it's nothing personnel. I don't want links to torrent trackers on this site quite yet. I don't really think you're a foreign bot, I hope you understand.

    I've posted an older remix of The Residents' song The Sleeper, with the generous permission of their business entity (The Cryptic Corporation). The Residents are still one of my favorite groups; they brought many a subversive smile to my childhood. Thanks guys, whoever you are!

    It's 5:30am and the site is up. Everything went basically smoothly except the part where I hosed the server's boot and had to physically boot into recovery mode. Now I'm just waiting on Mozilla to approve the Memespeech Firefox Extension, then wire it up to the page and we're good to go. (Google approved the Chrome Extension within 2 hours [at 3am])

    I'm still going to work on re-adding features to the deprecated section. But most people are unlikely to find that area anyway.

    It seems like I finally have to #launch this. I've had the pieces in place for awhile but I've been afraid to take the plunge. Superficially I fear rejection, but really my mask has protected me against that since learning how to use the false ego as a teenager.

    More significantly, I'm afraid of how this changes me, the progression from a thought to a statement, a statement that cannot be taken back. Even if it goes into a void (which would be fine), just the act of having made the statement will solidify certain thoughts into beliefs. And those beliefs will not be congruent with my IRL persona or the ethics of how I pay my bills. I will lose that part of myself, and probably my job.

    So what replaces that? A new set of ethics only goes so far. What kind of person will I become? Will I be happy? Will I carve out a new life for myself? Or will I descend further into neuroses, isolation, and the uglier parts of my mind.

    Guess there's only one way to find out, #yolo #lol

    The virus logo, created in mid-December 2019 before I or anyone had heard about the outbreak in China. At the time it seemed ridiculous for a browser extension's logo to look like a virus, and since the extension is ridiculous I went with it. Now that we are facing down an actual world pandemic, it is mandatory.

    Reality bends again. The brief moments I've experienced this before have been pivotal in shaping my life, but this has not been brief, nor has it been a moment. For an extending period of time, I have lost and continue to lose myself to a sense of compulsion.

    Here are a couple of things that still need to be tested.

    First url rewriting need to work correctly.

    Finally, tags must work: #test #yolo #drugs

    Mass Effect 3 should have ended the split second before Shepard was able to activate the console in the room with the Illusive Man. It would have been much more dramatic and satisfying than the events that followed.

    Also, regarding the updated ending where EA gave two extra middle fingers to players who were rightfully butt-hurt about the original ending—this was an insult and should not have been released.

    I would have been happier seeing all of Shepard's efforts being in vain than this bizarre attempt to make his or her decisions matter with a color selector.

    Listen up gun nuts.

    I grew up around guns. I am a gun owner and a die hard second amendment supporter. But it's time to ban semi-automatics, fully semi-automatics, ammunition, assault guns with too many magazine clips, shoulder things that go up, and guns designed to kill people. That's just common sense. After that you can have all the guns you want! After a thorough psychological evaluation, of course. And you can even go down to the local precinct to visit your gun under strict supervision whenever you want if you have a valid reason.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm all about the second amendment. The right to bear arms is extremely important to me, but isn't time we abolish the second amendment? Isn't it a little outdated? Well regulated militia. Why does anyone even need a gun?

    I'm not saying we ban guns. Fucking Christ you gun obsessed psychopaths, get a grip. Calm down, no one is coming for your guns. No one is saying ban all guns. I'm just saying that we ban the guns that can kill people. No one, and I repeat no one has ever suggested that we ban guns or abolish the secondment amendment. I don't even know where you evil baby killing monsters come up with that one.

    No one is a bigger supporter of gun rights than me. Common sense. Why won't you compromise?
