I finally ditched my Cable TV package and started streaming my TV shows the way nature intended. How did I do it? I signed up for a free trial with Netflix and Hulu-Plus on my PS3, that’s how! But how did it go? Let me spoil the suspense for you: I returned my Cable TV DVR a week later. Now, I’m running my TV on nothing more than media streaming bliss.
So how can you flip your expensive Cable TV package the bird? Read on to find out.
If you tried to visit Atheist Geek News in the past week, you may have noticed the dreaded White-Screen-of-Death that greeted you. This is what happens after you’ve been running a site for like seven years and you keep screwing around with it. The site is still partially broken, in fact. For example, I am typing this in a text editor because the visual editor isn’t working.
The plan is to back up everything, then start over fresh and import my articles, pages, pics, and your comments. Don’t look for this to happen until next week, however. Also, my spam filters aren’t working correctly, so if you leave a comment, it probably won’t be approved because there are dozens of spam comments popping up all over the place. They are being held for approval by the system, but I may not have time to sort out your comments from the spam.
My hope is that the site will be snappier when it comes back. It was getting slow, and Hostmonster hasn’t exactly given me a lot of system memory to work with, so it may be a bit more streamlined as well. We shall see what happens.
Thanks for reading!
UPDATE. P.S. – I have disabled comments because of the spam. If you would like to leave a comment or contact me, please use my email on my about page for now.
Actually, the geniuses who seem overeager for the world to end were wrong. The Mayans never predicted that the world would end yesterday. Like so many other things, some jerk made that up. And a bunch of you fell for it.
Not that it’ll make any difference. Cash money says someone will come up with an explanation for this failure of nonexistent prophecy by inventing some new date based on the Mayan calendar and claiming that was the real date all along. Millions eager to see the world end will believe them.
Why? Because people are smart. [Irony detected.]
I wonder how many went nuts last night and sold all their stuff or drank themselves into needing a new liver?
Don’t be that kind of smart, kids. Please.
You should have been getting laid. Amateurs. Learn from your mistakes!
This would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religions in it.
