Good day to you all. Or rather let us hope that it will be a good day. As you have probably already noticed, my site looks like ass. And it will probably look like varying shades of ass until I get it fixed. Yesterday, I transferred everything from WordPress’s servers to Taco Planet’s servers. Needless to say, some things got lost in the move and I will be working diligently today, and hopefully not tomorrow as well, to make sure that the site is functioning well enough for you to see/read/comment on things. Awesome. Luckily, after uploading the newest version of the Journalist, my current theme, most of the problems with the page corrected themselves. Unfortunately, some of the bigger problems did not. Seeing as how Taco Planet will not be up for another four or five hours, thereby limiting my help in this fiasco to just me, and possibly Furious Jessy, you will just have to suffer along side me until we get this figured out.
The problems that I have discovered thus far include, but are not limited to:
a) Images are not being displayed as thumbnails, but as their ridiculously huge counterparts.
b) All of the links to my associates are missing.
c) Links throughout the pages that connect to corresponding pages within the site, do not work.
d) It looks like a flaming turd.
e) None of the embedded videos are showing up, only their corresponding URLs appear on the page.
And so on. And so on.
So today, I will be devoting my time and energy to correcting these problems and the thousand others that will surely arise as I delve deeper into the work.
Alas, every rain cloud has a silver lining and this fiasco brings some good news. The good news is that I can now post using videos and music (I think). This situation is also forcing me to do the manual re-size and re-upload of all of the past galleries, which is something that is stupid and time consuming and which I have been avoiding for almost six months. Also, if I ever have to change servers again, I will be really good at doing it seamlessly, because I will know what to do instead of just waving my dick in the wind. I was going to insert the Ween song “Waving My Dick In the Wind” here, but for some reason it is not showing up on my hard drive. So you’ll just have to click here to hear it.
Okay, well I’d love to stay and chat, but I have to go fix this hot mess. For you. It’s all for you. All of my suffering and toiling over a hot stove(read as keyboard) for hours is for you. And this is the thanks that I get?! That reminds me. It has been way too long since I watched Bill Cosby: Himself. Maybe I’ll cue that up while I’m working. More soon. ~SC
P.S. If you notice anything that is (well, how should I say this, um) fucked up, let me know as soon as possible. You can email me via sandwichcontrol at gmail dot com.
