I Got My Domain Back

What wonderful news, I can hear my inner 17-year-old self say. After losing my personal domain nrg-online.ca back in the early 2000s to the horrid Michael “Mikey” Yack from FerberleursSabings.com I managed to get it back.

Granted it took many years, but it’s the principle of it all. What do I plan on doing with it ? No idea, maybe make a homage to how much I detest Mikey Yack, but I already did that for a while on mmn.on.ca.

While it’s not a massive victory, by literally any stretch of the imagination, it’s kind of the same feeling I got when I managed to get MrMan.NET on a domain auction from Dynadot in 2014.

Let’s see all the old accounts I still have attached to my old email address now…

Reading is Fundamental

In the lockdown boredom and sudden liberation of social commitments on the old bank balance, I boredom bought decided to buy a Kindle.

Granted, selling my soul to Amazon wasn’t me best idea (although I did pay extra for the Ad Free version of said Kindle) it was probably the best option for my lazy ass to start reading again.

I’ve bought a couple of books while I await the Kindle itself since of course, it’s one of those 7-day delay products (hashtag thanks COVID) to flip through on my phone for a while. I even got back on to GoodReads, because I’ve committed to this now.

Let Me Share a Story

This happened last night, told in the medium of text message.

[23:48, 24/03/2020] Kévin: I just had a hilarious moment
[23:49, 24/03/2020] Kévin: Getting out of bed for a pee, halfway down I managed to knock over a pint glass, thing rolls on the floor and smashes, I try not to step in the glass, which of course means I fall into it repeatedly, screaming
[23:50, 24/03/2020] Kévin: While all this is kicking off, I’m spraying an ungodly amount of blood from a small little cut all over my floor
[23:50, 24/03/2020] Kévin: I give up
[23:50, 24/03/2020] Kévin: I stand in the glass cos there ain’t anything else to stand in at this point
[23:51, 24/03/2020] Kévin: Grab the brush, bleed everywhere, try and get this shit sorted before Kaja comes flying into the kitchen, because she will of course, and there will be more blood and screaming
[23:52, 24/03/2020] Kévin: Meanwhile, the reason I came down is because I needed to pee, so here I am about to piss my self, covering the floor in more blood
[23:52, 24/03/2020] Kévin: Sweeping up
[23:53, 24/03/2020] Kévin: And my nose is running too, so blood everywhere, going to burst a seal at any moment, nose dripping in
[23:53, 24/03/2020] Kévin: Sweeping while of course stepping on more glass, bleeding more, making this problem a fucking horror show
[23:54, 24/03/2020] Kévin: Finally get all the pieces I can find, check my foot, and in the process nick myself on a ninja splinter in my food, now bleeding from my hand, considering to just piss myself and call it a night
[23:55, 24/03/2020] Kévin: Eventually, it’s all swept up, now I’m using wet wipes to clear a murder scene, still wishing I took the opportunity to wet myself, when I waddle to the toilet, do my business, figure OK we done now
[23:56, 24/03/2020] Kévin: To find Kaja blast through the windows cos now she’s having an argument with a fucking leaf and is rilled up by the fact she can smell blood, metaphorically and figuratively
[23:57, 24/03/2020] Kévin: I was à good 3 minutes away from being very asleep before all of this
[23:58, 24/03/2020] Kévin: Now, now I am going to stare at the ceiling while the angry one tries to kill whatever she thinks just exploded in the flat

Many moons ago I created an account on vk.com, it basically just got shit from my Livejournal posted on to the wall for an eternity. Until February when somebody hacked it (somehow), I only found out when LiveJournal told me that it wasn’t cross posting.

I went on and sure enough there are a bunch of people I don’t know and a garbage photo in my Album. It kind of explains all the Instagram password resets I was getting around the same time.

I’m sure there are a bunch more old accounts that had been hit, thanks to using the same password in the past and a shit tonne of hacks from places like Dropbox, Bitly, and tumblr. Good work assholes.

I’m so so bored

In France we are now kept inside our homes and only let out for specific reasons, obviously this is for the greater good.

But when you can’t go do a thing you realise that being at home is quite boring. Don’t get me wrong, after a long week hiding for an entire Saturday is pretty exhilarating, but being at home for what will be a week as of tomorrow night is rather boring.

For a while I had work to keep me occupied all day, but now our hours have been temporarily reduced, so filling my time with activities, is well, trying. In fact, my cat now hates me for existing in her space.

But it also means I can do other things I really should have been doing for some time now, like working on my BBS, expanding my web presence, buying a shit tonne of domains, and doing up my gopherhole.

So far, I updated a single page on gopher.is, so we there, in the grove.

Tequila is Just Mexican for Liquid Regrets

Seeing as it’s been a couple of days since I had a soirée, some how still have a hangover, and it appears all the photos still haven’t resurfaced. I ask myself, how I didn’t listen to my own advice at the start of the evening.

I remember it quite well, as I looked at the Tequila bottle, and said to the same people I was later doing shots with, Tequila is Just Mexican for Liquid Regrets.

I really should have listened to myself.

First Post (Phlog)

I want to create a Phlog, so I did.

I generally use content all over the place, because I’m not enough of a content generator to be able to get my shit together and write different things around.

No jokes, you’ll find this post on my blog, livejournal, and no doubt elsewhere I see fit, on top of it being on the phlog.

I also post it on the web via the phlog, only because I really want to get more in to posting using Markdown and it seems the most logical way of doing this.

And before you ask, I considered creating the webpage using phlog.gopher.is but I decided to keep that domain off of the old HTTP and it seems I have standards. I picked my BBS.ec domain, because in a weird sort of way Gopher has always been linked to my BBS.
