A Minor Programming Note

A very good friend of mine sent me an email the other day and said they may not be scanning the blog as often because between the Wuhan virus and other matters, life has become a little too hectic.

I told my friend to get bent.

No, I’m obviously kidding, but the email had a specific message that is worth addressing here. As you can see in the photo above, this blog is basically written by a monkey – and not the smart ones NASA sent into orbit. The Wuhan virus has affected everyone, whether physically, mentally, or economically. Most of us are stressed out, dealing with health issues, or worrying about family members.

Writing posts for the blog has been a chore lately, because it is difficult to find stories which are not Wuahn-related. No one wants to keep reading about the doom and gloom every day – certainly not me. The blog has been hemorrhaging readers for a while now – self-inflicted, after quitting blogs the past few years – and that’s okay. I’m nowhere near as obsessive about this place as I was in the late 2000s.

There are a good amount of core regulars who stop by and comment occasionally, but please do not feel like that is an obligation. Everyone has other serious obligations awaiting them, and this blog is not on that list. If you can use the blog as a momentary escape, terrific. If not, then attend to your family, friends, and most of all, yourself.

I’ll continue posting here, since I feel it helps me do my part to keep everyone somewhat sane. You don’t have to read the posts or comment. At all. When things get back to normal, the blog will still be here. Seriously, attend to your matters and keep yourself safe and healthy.

  1. My sisters only listen to depressing news all day long. Coming to your site is good for me. Keep blogging & I’ll keep visiting. Thanks


  2. Don’t be so hard on yourself. The monkeys they shoot into space aren’t that smart either! Case in point, Mark Kelly. Aside from being staunchly anti- Second Amendment, he’s been taking money from the Chinese! And he wants to represent Arizona in the Senate.


    1. The socialist have had their sights on AZ for some time now. And due to its unfortunate proximity to Kalifornicate, it looks like they will succeed.

      When I get back home, I’m going to drive to the west New Mexico border and put up signs that say “Welcome to Texas! Just move in right here.”


      1. AZ republicans aren’t all that great.
        Except that she would choose Schumer as Senate leader, I prefer Sinema to McCain or Flake.
        Which is a low bar, but still.


  3. “Heeerrreeee I come to save the daaaaayyyy!”

    Heading home this weekend, barring any last minute snafu. So, get ready for some serious snark. 🙂

    Hang in there. And remember, it could be worse. Think of with whom Bill Clinton had to quarantine.


  4. Proof – I worry about AZ because McSally is not a great candidate. Kelly is a tool, but theu will have sympathy because his wife was shot.

    TX Nick – Every one of his conquests were galactically more spectacular than Cankles.


  5. “…. [R]egulars who stop by and comment occasionally, but please do not feel like that is an obligation…”

    Oh, thank G-d. I am so sick of coming here and stroking your damned ego. Adios, MFer!!!!



  6. I haven’t commented until now, for a couple of weeks, because I escaped jail and went on the lam with my lovely bride and feelow escapee. We drove up near Seattle to the heart of Wuhan land and saw our son, DIL, and grandkids. It was great fun. We went nowhere while there, got around no infected people, and it was, well… just like being in jail at home – with the exception I got pretty tired out playing with four little kids all day every day. I threw a lot of balls and built a lot of lego creations for them. Being a grandpa is fun. Now I am back in jail at home, ready to waste lots of time on my computer.
