Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

07/27/2005: Rook Resumes...Ranting

Rook’s Rant has fixed his webpage after his encounter with the Vicious Attack Internets: Ok, Back Up And Running:

”As you can see, I am back. I lost the posts all the way back to July 15th. For those of you whom left comments about the passing of The GirlFriend™'s mother, thank you again.
I really am disappointed that I lost those posts, but that is the chance I took when I decided to try the beta of Movable Type.

I will be hacking the default template and restoring the old look. I just do not have the time to do so this evening. I have to get up and go to work in the morning. Rest assured that I am not going to do any intentional re-designing. I was happy with the old look.

Update: I forgot to mention-I am allowing only authenticated comments, i.e., you have to log into TypeKey to be able to leave comments. Sorry, but I do not have spam protection installed at the moment. However, it really is not a big deal, go get yourself a free account with TypeKey.

But I can’t [won’t] leave a comment IF I must sign up and create some TypeKey account. This is not a "Diss" to Rook’s Rant…more a recognition of my severe Techno-dweeb limits.

Last time I tried something like this (on E-Blogger) just to leave a comment -- I ended up inadvertently creating a brand new E-Blogger WebPage in my name instead. So, if ya ever run across this mis-begotten Page and it’s single “test- post” you’ll know why it’s there. However, being a total Dweeb, I don’t remember how to access it, nor edit it, nor delete it.

There it sits --a forgotten little web-page all by it’s lonesome, Road-Kill on the Bloggie Highway.
