Apologies, user accounts are gone

A hack attack on the server hosting my blog was pretty much wiped out in an attack (wasn’t me!) so the system had to be reloaded and the blog recreated. Some of the images didn’t survive and apparently the user accounts for people who had signed up and were commenting. Their comments are still there, […]

Registration issues

This is cute.

I just learned that the captcha was broken. I disabled that plugin and am now just using the one that requests email confirmation.

Register with a username and an email address and it says it will send your password once you confirm. It’ll send you an email with a link that you […]

Playing with the “look”

I upgraded wordpress to the latest version and noticed in my last posting that it was not displaying hyperlinks in the posts.

I’m trying to fix that but don’t want to change the appearance of the blog (I kind of like how it is now). Unfortunately, upgrading to a newer version of this theme is […]

Ok, that was actually painless

Well, MOSTLY painless…

It didn’t take that long to get everything uploaded, then ran a script and ‘bang’ it’s done. xD

I wasn’t expecting it to be done this soon, and I WAS expecting it to take much longer, but what do I know, right?

Exploring the new wordpress…

Blog upgrade coming.

It’s been a long time since I’ve upgraded the software (and heck, the blog too. Sorry) and I think it’s about that time. I haven’t been able to do the automatic upgrades because of permissions errors and I don’t know why, so I have to do it manually – unzip the software, copy the pieces […]

Sorry so quiet…

I haven’t found anything new to say about Cowboy Bebop in a little while. I don’t know if I’ve said everything that I have to say or if I just haven’t been watching it enough lately (that latter is probably it).

I have a fic started, but have NO idea what it’s going to be […]

We have a forum!

It has been suggested in more than one place (here being one of them 🙂 ) that we should have a forum where folks can chat about Cowboy Bebop and other things that may be of interest.

We can talk about Cowboy Bebop there, or if the threads start going off topic, well that’s ok.

Watanabe san is ok!

I said I wasn’t going to post again about the status of anime and gamer personnel, but thought I would mention that Shinichiro Watanabe updated his facebook page posting about Yoko Kanno.

He’s ok.

It’s northern Japan , Honshu, that’s suffering from the destruction from the earthquake and tsunami, specifically the Miyagi prefecture where Yoko […]

Japan quake – Who’s ok in anime (so far)

Someone tweeted this link from Anime News Network. Check it often, it’s being updated with followups.

I won’t be posting on followups, I just want to make sure any of my readers who are not on twitter or are not searching the #anime hash tag see this.

Two names on the list I immediately recognize, […]

Prayers for Japan

A massive 8.9-magnitude earthquake rocked northeast Japan late on Friday afternoon, setting a nuclear plant ablaze and unleashing a 10-metre tsunami that tossed ships inland and left at least 110 people dead. [quote from Australia’s ABC News]

The news coming out of the country is grim and the west coast of North America are at […]
