So, don't think this site is abandoned. Every year i shill out another chunk of my wage to renew hosting.

Burmese govt vows action against drug traffickers

Burma’s government has pledged to take strong action against drug producers and traffickers across the country.

The 'plug in' seems to have been upgraded.

At a glance it seems like this version has features that were absent from the first.

Johnny Htoo working with KNU

While perusing the news from home at Panglong.org I noticed in the article about a possible summit between armed groups that leading the talks was

POPE DIES! Beatification awaits approval of new Pope.

Canonization is probably not far off for Hey Seuss certainly the most saintly of popes in the past few centuries.

The Effects of a Tattoo.

How would anyone born and raised in suburban Brisbin with its regimented schooling and religion founded on fraudulent testaments that look tattered and lame once the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, and Little Red Riding Hood have been accepted as frauds ever accept that a tattoo, more accurately a style of tattoos, can ever exert an occult power however simple and mundane that power might be demonstrated.

Strontium Dog

There's a Doc around here who croaked like a bullfrog in the wet season until he lost his licence to prescribe, which he is contesting, when I have worked up a monstrous 7 Xanax/day habit. So seductive they're despicable.

 

He did pay attention to my health by sending me off for all sorts of tests and scans, one of which revealed osteoporosis. He put me on one medicine which is a hormone strategy which made me feel worse than Seraquel so he gave me Strontium Ranelate

Page Not Found errors

Hello - I've noticed in the logs since the server migration that we're getting Page Not Found errors from Library of Junk when we click from the 'More' link.  Workaround - click from the heading/Title link, the one on orange, and you'll get where you want to go.  It's happening because spaces in names are being replaced with %20's, not with underscores.

Diffrent Strokes

"What ever gets you through the night..." is a memorable lyric. It is also a truism that gets me into some of the most unpleasant nights in memory when "Whatever" is unavailable. I wish I was a schoolboy for the night when a bit of masturbation would do the trick but those days are long gone.

Joy, Joy, Joy

With the state of the site being a complete mystery I had become somewhat perturbed however I am a man of faith which has again been rewarded. The Tracker can go through another simple trial.

Suboxone Film

I'm just back from my weekly visit to my chemist, picking up my six takeaways.  A sign on the methadone counter tells all customers that they have to move off Suboxone tablets and on to Suboxone Film by 1/9/13. I remember when they moved everyone from Subutex to Suboxone, due to 'misuse' of Suboxone. Seems they're doing a similar thing now, although the chemist tells me it's because the Suboxone tablets had a nasty foaming side-effect? I've never used Suboxone, so I don't know much about it and side effects, but I do know that you could get $800 for a 50 box in prison not too long ago.

The twenty day upgrade

Well, choosing to do the server migration whilst assignments are due and work is busy perhaps wasn't the best moment to perform it, but I guess getting hacked and spammed put me on edge. I think the new box is *somewhat* more secure now, for varying meanings of somewhat. Let me know if you find any bugs, please, this horse is tightly bolted down and no doubt some information will not be as free as it should be.

Tonight's the night

Ok, if you're reading this on Friday August 2nd, you're reading it in the short gap between when I wrote this blog and kicked off the final backup.  Once I've a safe archived copy in a few spots, I will reformat the HDD of the newjunkie server, install teh distro i've chosen, then start learning the command-line interfaces necessary to set up a server and a uni dev box for C dev and  eclipse....

Hacked but functioning

Okay, so I paid teh price for running this site on a Microsoft box.  Last Tuesday a few bots set up user accounts on the site and then proceeded to exploit existing Drupal hoels to take root on the MS box.  Serves me right really.

So teh site will be down for a few days as I wipe the MS install and put a unix flavour on the same box. Better security, and serving is still the raison d'etre for unix, and just a sideline for MS. So hopefully we'll see some other improvements.

When I was twenty

When I was twenty scarcely a fortnight could go by without a song, a movie, or even a well-thought out comment from a friend evoking a strong, honest emotional response.
Now I've travelled forward in time as far again as I had back then, I guess I'm saying I am over forty, just. And it was for the first time in perhaps years that tonight I listened to a song that managed to trigger something in me.
Mountain Goats, Sunset Tree album the first few songs. I've heard them before many times. But I haven't had a shot today and I've had a LOT of shots as of late.
