That was dumb. Sorry. I mean, for that last post. That was just dumb. Try to understand though, by making
Dieyuppiescum.org more dumb, I was sort of trying to get you guys to go check out, and hopefully participate in Nougats.org. Also, I was, and still am, deeply upset over current world events. More
specifically the profoundly retarded actions of a once proud America and it's formerly glorious military, bla, bla, et
cetera. Stuff needs to be said, I just start hemmoraging eloquence when my heckles are aroused... but there are many far
better writers than I who do not appear to have such problems, so I shall steer your attention in
if you don't mind. Those are only 2 examples... there are many more, but I will put them in the more comments section of
this, as soon as I get caught up on some work... I do still have a job, by some lucky mistake of fate.

the return of the rage
it's hard to believe it was ever missed.
Remembering better times in stark contrast
with the cowardace of tyrants,
I look up and see only filth and darkness;
insect carapaces and the dim outline of the dead fluorescent tube.
It's all noise and fear and hate
It's all the rage.
Content Management Systems|
Added by Lord Nougat|| Wenzday Marchus 12st - 9:56:66 aM
That's what they call it: content management systems, or software... and a few other variations. That's the name for
the stuff that makes up sites like Slashdot, Morons.org, and plenty of noteworthy others. See, I have lofty hopes
for the new site and what it can be. This one can remain what it already is, whatever the hell it is. I guess
it's just 'mine'. I still don't want dieyuppiescum to be a mere blog, for better or worse... it has too much stuff
glommed into it for that... perhaps it's a SUPER Blog. Bla.
Anyway, apparently wishy-washy fickleness rules supreme here at the Nougat Factory, because the appeal, the love affair
with, the attraction of PHPWebsite has waned. There are so many other choices, such as the aforementioned Slashdot's
mammoth abomination of Perl, Slashcode, my new enfatuation, Squishdot, the
attractive yet somewhat broken monstrosity momentarily squatting at Nougats.org, PHPNuke (Which is really rather worth a gander, but all the really good documentation
seems to be in German and it's being difficult... and there are so very many other choices that might be so very easy I
see no reason not to try them. I'm just a little code-slut I guess. Tee-hee.
So, in summation, Nougats.org is up, it will change and not work right periodically
since it's all experimental at this point, and opinions and feedback on such will make the Nougat fluffier and more
delicious. Oh, and for some reason, if you put big ugly Ws in front of the nougats url, like this: www.nougats.org, for some reason you find yourself right back here again. I'm sure
it's sumething extremely simple, but for the time being, I sorta like it. Try it yourself, You know you want to...as
they seemed so fond of saying way back when 'try it, you'll like it'. Kay. So, um, bye.

I know, we've been getting all glum lately here at dieyuppiescumdotorg, and hopefully we've not driven off both of our
loyal readers... it's just that all this really creepy depressing stuff is happening all around us and everybody seems
to be pretending not to notice or something, so in an effort to be journalistically integritized (hehe... i bet certain
rich boys think that's real word), we feel it to be our duty to draw attention to all this craziness, if only to feel
justified in saying "Told You So!!!" after the fact.
To be fair, though, this 'main' or 'front' page as it were

Have you ever wanted to use your DDS1 or DDS2 data

Added by Lord Nougat|| Thor's day NOvember 14st - 2:05:66 pM
Well, Trygve has been wondering about that too, and when he posts stuff on his
site someplace, it usually means he's figured it out. I know I'll have to update that,(I have updated it, since
he gave it it's very own page!) apparently when it's not
November anymore, judging by the way he's got his blogs arranged, but damn fascinating.
I just got some new DDS
decks, I'm not really sure what they are at all, because I got a big heap of neato old SCSI devices, and little by little,
I'm testing them out. I started with the DVD drive, but it's sadly dead. There's an external harddrive of some kind, and
I've only tried connecting that to my Win2k box, and it was all freaked out by it... but I
still wanna try mounting it
on one of the unix boxen to see if there's something on that disk (and if it works at all). All this stuff came from a
JPL auction, so there might be some fascinatingly boring data on there. On the other hand, they likely would not be
selling off all this stuff for fracions of pennies on the dollar if it still worked. Never know, though... so I'll test
out all the stuff, and let y'all know how the tape drives work out! Then I might be able to back this site up more
traditionally (and regularly), AND mix down some primo audio tracks!

write stuff on so my site would be all together and well thought out like some

Okay. That was a stupid idea. Never ever ever try to use a Compaq Presario (sorrio) as a server. Trust me; just don't
even try. Long story short, I'm in the market for a new motherboard, some new harddrives, and, well that's it, my parts
bin overfloweth otherwise... I'm only lacking in functional
motherboards and harddrives. FreeBSD installed fine, by the
way. It was a thing of beauty for a short time... until one of he harddrives just up and quit...and I
suspect there is
a problem in the BIOS of the sorry thing's motherboard too... it's all messed up.
I'm gonna just salvage the working
components, then fix the rest with the format hammer, or the
repartitioning chainsaw, or the data-security microchip
But enough about me, how are you doing? That's nice.
I know you folks don't come here to hear me whining about my crappy hardware
that I mostly scrounged from rubbish bins anyway...that's what I get, I hear you

funny stuff, I don't want to be considered

Well, where I'm going with this is, this is the absolutely best frozen pizza we've ever had! I heartily recommend it.
If you know how I can get money from Safeway for saying what super-great frozen pizza they have, let me know, I can use

good pal who's been hosting this monstrosity for... well, forever. Well, the time
has come for him to move up one rung, and move from an apartment to a
house of his own, and moving is always a huge pain, so the server is going to have to be down for a little while. Or is
it? See, now that I will have bandwidth, the server (or at least the www directory) will get to live on my very own
webserver. Bider actually hosts a pretty significant number of domains from one little
old dual-proc pentium pro box. I
sorta think that the time has come for all those domains to move to an Athlon box. Maybe not, stupid athlon heat
issues...a server needs to not be overheating and shutting itself off and crap like that; well I have a weekend to think
At any rate, there will be some downtime, at least the time it'll take for dns records to get
propagated, what's that, like 24-48 hours max? We'll see how it works out, but just keeping you informed.
