10/02 - Another Somewhat Timely Update? Huh?
I wanted to get this update out towards the end of September so I could be caught up on my quickies for the first time in ages, but I came down with a cold. Here are the quickies for July and August 2019.
And for what it's worth, after two months away from WoW I've taken my laptop to the library a couple times and pressed my luck with the nighttime bandwidth, as I wanted to get that Hearthstone toy from the Brewfest event and work towards that manta ray mount from the Unshackled faction while I was at it. My ability to play is still very limited, forcing a healthier balance between it and the rest of my life which I'd like to maintain when/if I get a consistent connection again.
9/04 - I Am Taunting the Apocalypse Today
Wait, what? Two updates within thirty days? Wow, I can actually get things done when I'm not grinding in Azeroth all day, huh. Today we've got the quickies for May and June 2019.
8/10 - I Want to Break Free
For the five of you who still read this site, here's some news; in mid July I flew back out to western New York, which means I'm on back on satellite Internet. I don't want to bore you with the technicals of how bad satellite Internet is, so let's cut to the chase and say World of Warcraft is basically unplayable on satellite and raid is totally impossible on it, so unless I haul my laptop to a place with WiFi I'm out of the game. Which in turn means I'm not longer farting away the day on it and can maybe get some relevant shit done. Or at least I could once I got my workstation sorted back out and had a place to use the laptop.
Let's kick off the 2019 quickies with January, February, March, and April.
I also made some small changes to the navigation around here. On the main page I replaced the section images on the left with a smaller text link listing, that way I could increase the size of the actual update listing. I dropped my forums because they hadn't been posted in for two years and for fuck's sake, one of the subforums hadn't been posted in since 20-fucking-11.
Some day I really need to put the header into its own file and connect it to the individual pages with PHP; I know how to do that (or at least know where to find the video I followed to do that before), but you have to change the .html files to .shtml, and I need to figure out how to forward pages.
6/01 - You Bastards May Take Exactly What I Give You
2018 in Review is up, and it only took me four months to do!
Hopefully I can get the first batch of 2019 quickies out sooner than that.
2/17 - Siiiiiigh
The final three months of 2018 quickies, for October, November, and December. Yeah, I'm sorry about the terrible updating schedule through the year, and I want to do better in 2019, but can't make promises.
And here's something I learned a couple weeks ago: Encyclopedia Obscura no longer exists.
06/28 - I Ain't Dead
I'm fine, unless you count a World of Warcraft addiction fed by depression over real-world events. To make up for lost time, here's the January, February, and March quickies from the beginning of 2018.
02/20 - I Hope You Haven't Forgotten My Role in This Little Story
Today we look back on 2017, a year spent mostly grinding in World of Warcraft with a little bit of Final Fantasy to fill in the gaps.
09/29 - Ook
Monkeys and Mario in the August 2017 Quickies.
08/28 - Determination
Hey, we finally got away from Disney for the July 2017 Quickies.
07/10 - Woo-Ooh
Another Disney heavy month in the June 2017 Quickies.
06/18 - Your Pain Shall Be Twofold
What's this? TWO updates in a month? With one of them being a new full article to go into the File Cabinet? That explosion you just heard was an army of flying pigs erupting from the ground after Hell froze over!
Today, we look at my adventures in Repairing an Auron Play Art.
I also altered the CSS of the File Cabinet main page to look like the Music page. Yeah, I got a little excited with learning CSS and made some of my menus an eyesore.
06/07 - Wish For the Nile
We've got a Disney heavy month in the May 2017 quickies. I'm probably going to piss off a lot of people with the first entry.
05/16 - Biggie Smalls, Biggie Smalls, Biggie Smalls
I got a cheap USB capture device, so I went ahead and replaced the placeholder image for Legend of Dragoon back in the December 2016 quickies. I've also got the quickies for March and April 2017.
04/26 - Juicey
Very minor update today. A year ago I put some ads on Nightshade Insanity, which expired yesterday. I went ahead and updated it to the new layout while I was reverting the text, although something tells me the page itself could stand to be edited.
Out of sheer coincidence, Jim Sterling posted this video about "SEO Juice" on Monday, which made me feel embarassed because the "ads" I'd been running were revised sentences with a few links, just like the description of sponsored content, and I didn't realize before that was a problem. As such, I'm no longer accepting ads for this site, and updated my About page accordingly.
02/01 - That's Great, It Starts With an Earthquake
December quickies. Sorry for not having 2016 in Review yet, it's been slow writing in between getting sick with fear and anger at all the stupid shit that's been going on (with the added bonus of December containing a RiffTrax film I couldn't write anything about). But might as well do something to distract myself from the awfulness of the world.
01/10 - Forget Me, I'm Lost
Let's make up for the month-long drought with the September, October, AND November quickies all in one go! I'll try to get the December quickies and Year in Review out soon.
Yeah, still wasting too much of my time on World of Warcraft. But now that I'm at level 110 and there aren't any major events happening, I can wind back on my play time. And hey, I finally got the "Crazy for Cats" achievement and my Tauren gets to be a Crazy Cat Man!
