Injecting ink into the body? What could go wrong?

I can't imagine what it would take me to inject colouring into my skin, but it might be more than a lot of money paid to me.

Dreamhost is sucking it hard

My website host computer died again today for at least 1.5 hours at the time of writing this. It should be back up by the time you read this, but this is the second time in the last month that my site has been affected by temporary server downtime. This isn't usual, or good.

Site was down again today

My main blog at has been down at least 3 times this Summer, mostly due to Dreamhost in L.A powering down during hot times of the day. This one happened at night and lasted only a few minutes.

Blog broken again July 28th 2006

I think Dreamhost is having serious sytem troubles, as me, and several other websites I've checked have been offline since 2:30 today and it's 4:30 now. So is offline for the moment, and should be back up sometime today. The last outage was about 6 hours.
[UPDATE: It came back up at 5:00PM today]

Blog outage Monday July 17th

Now known as Dark Monday, today my blog host died inexplicably when I wanted to post pictures and get back on track posting my thoughts. Oh well, I guess I can find a way to sort my nearly 1000 pictures and videos from my vacation.

Crater hunters rejoice; Customer Service; War criminal dies

Discover crater impact sites in your spare time? Someone did using Google Earth, and found two undiscovered craters in the first few hours, but not any after that initial success.

This morning I went looking for a "flying combine" outside of Saskatoon, and instead found a moving train that just crossed the Yellowhead #16 Highway. On you can see all sorts of interesting things, much better than my train discovery.


If you have a bad experience, the retailer really should make you happy again. Like, DUH, huh? I know when eBay treated me badly, I didn't say nice things about them, but now that someone there is making an effort to win me back, I'm not going to direct people elsewhere.


War criminal Slobodan Milosevic was found dead of natural causes in his jail cell this morning. Now if only Saddam Hussien would have the same sense of decency in his final act on earth, and pass away of natural causes before we all fight about whether we should let him rot in jail or kill him at the end of his trial.

Sheaf Gate and the War in Canada

First off concerning SheafGate:

Here’s an excellent opinion about the events surrounding the publishing of Capitalist Piglet in The Sheaf UofS paper. And I’ve got links from the editor in the heart of the storm. He points out that there was no outcry at the cartoon depiction of love between a hot lady and rabbit. Before that The Wayward Reporter details a timeline in the controversy. There has also been a blog set up to support the Sheaf, and to counter the boycott blog that got provincial media coverage while the webmaster remained anonymous and bashed bookstores for selling The Da Vinci Code [while claiming the work of fiction is an anti-Christian historical document possibly].


Now moving on to war, a REAL war, the one we’re fighting in Afghanistan. I feel that Canada is justified in staying in the battlezone and assisting the defenseless Afghani people who have no control over the warlords or Taliban thugs. I also feel it’s essential that the House of Commons vote on where our Canadian Forces are deployed. If the House can’t be consulted before the deployment, then they should at least review the action every 6 months, because we owe our brave troops at least that much consideration.

It’s so, pardon me for drawing from recent events, American to send an army overseas without consulting the people’s representatives in an official capacity. It doesn’t show disrespect to the troops or mission to vote on their deployment, it just shows good common sense if we want to remain a democracy. After all, how would you like it if your government sent your daughter overseas to invade Belgium, and you didn’t have a voice in Parliament, or any organization for that matter, that holds the Defence minister accountable if the invasion isn’t in the defense of Belgians and Canadians?
