Photo Gallery changes, again…

So, I’ve had to switch photo galleries again. I’m not sure what happened with the old one, but it just kind of stopped working for me. I’m using different software this time, and it seems to be much better, so we’ll see how it goes. The photos are in the process of uploading right now, so for anyone who actually looks at this stuff, it’ll be there shortly.

 

Comments

I just realized that I had it set up that you had to have an account to post comments, but I also had it set so that no one could register.  I set it so you don’t need an account now, so on the rare occasion that someone would want to comment, you’ll now be able to. I do have it set that I have to moderate every comment, but that’s to cut down on shitty spam bots.

On blogging and other subjects

I’m really not sure why I even have a blog anymore. I don’t really post. I hate the idea of giving up the URL, because attackofhubris.net is so awesome, and the hosting is very inexpensive. I also really like messing around with wordpress.

I guess I just really have a hard time finding the motivation to write anything, especially because I suspect that my wife might be the only person who reads my blog, and I think she only does that when I tell her that I’ve posted. And really, if it’s just her, I can just talk to her about whatever is on my mind.  We still do that from time to time.

Hell, as much as I think twitter is an awesome thing, I hardly ever actually keep track of what’s going on on there. It’s gotten incredibly unwieldy for me. A couple have told me that I need to start using lists, but that kind of feels like it’s defeating the purpose for me . I never use the website, all my twittering is done exclusively on my phone in an app. It’s set to update every 15 minutes or so, but I usually only check it a couple of times a day, and just click the jump to top button.

I think it all comes down to the fact that, as smart as I think I am, and as much as I think my opinion is pretty much always right, I haven’t been able to make the leap to thinking that anyone actually gives a shit what I say. Also, despite the fact that I am all over the damn internet, I’m pretty much a loner, and a solitary and private person. If it wasn’t for the fact that I somehow managed to trick a very unlucky woman into marrying me, it’s very unlikely I would have any human interaction outside of work and occasionally hanging out with my friend Tim.

Also, I’m pretty sure I have a pretty bad case of sleep apnea, because I’m always tired.   Maybe I would feel more motivated about anything really if I didn’t constantly feel run down.  I’m sure losing weight would help that as well, but I’m about as motivated about that as I am blogging.  We are eating a lot better though, and that’s made me feel a little bit better.

 

Photo Gallery Changes

I don’t know if anyone ever actually looks at my photo gallery, but I’m currently working on a migration from Coppermine to Gallery3. The new address will eventually be www.attackofhubris.net/photos instead of www.attackofhubris.net/gallery . I’ll probably keep the old one up for a while, but eventually it will go away.
The subdomain photos.attackofhubris.net will start pointing to the new gallery shortly.

New blog, same as the old blog

I don’t know if anyone at all actually visits this site, or has it in a feed reader or anything, but the slate has been wiped clean. I’m completely starting over. I had well over 4 years of posts on this site, that were for the most part pointless and unimportant. They’re gone for good.

I can’t say that I’m actually going to post more. I’m not making any promises. Not to myself or anyone else.

I want to believe that my life is actually interesting enough to write about, but I don’t really think that it is. While I consider my opinions to be superior to that of just about anyone else, I’m under no illusion that anyone else really gives a shit what I think.

This will be used mainly to document, for my own purposes, what interests me at the current moment. Everyone else is more than welcome to come and share in my celebration of all things strange, geeky,  and awesome. Discussion is more than welcome.

Right now, I do ask  that if anyone is actually out there reading this, post a comment so I know you’re there. I use no tracking software or anything, so comments are really the only way I know if anyone is there or cares, or whether I really am the only member of my own audience.
