8th year

I’ve been blogging for 8 years. Fuck me.

wordpress

Migrated from Movable Type to WordPress – something to start for my New Year. Spent the whole New Year Eve re-coding my old Movable Type template into WordPress… it was hell of a work, since I’m not a programming kinda guy.

[Reasons aplenty, on why I took the trouble to do this. I’m not gonna start on it.]

Just let me know if you have any feedback on bugs/errors or suggestions for improvements/etc… In the meanwhile, here’s a summary of some of the notable changes in this blog

– the old URLs will not work anymore. It will work for now and temporary, but they will all be changed once I got the archives running, and the old MT files removed. The content of this blog however, remains the same (the new URL structure will be shorter and neater)
– there will be no more pop up commenting form/list. All comments will load as a single entry page now.
– as a result of that change, all comments will now be linkable, just like a blog entry.
– your vapid text expression inside the commenting system will now automatically churn an actual smiley image.
– the site is now paginated. Just click the page link (on top or bottom of screen) to scroll for older entries (this is to save loading time).
– the sidebar menu is now FF / IE compatible. Previously, it was only FF compatible. (IE sucks donkey cock)

That’s about it for now. There will be more changes coming, now that I have WordPress powering this site. Happy New Year to all of you.

1000th post

This is my 1000th published entry. (Exact post count = 1192. 188 entries had either been deleted or taken down due to complaints from readers, violation of workplace etiquette, conflict of interests, etc, 4 entries are hidden)

Not sure if this is something that I should be proud of, but in a way, it’s telling me that I have been spending wayyy too much time sitting in front of the computer punching keys and has been as productive as a retarded paraplegic sloth.

And these wasted time, hundreds fucketh of hours of it, could have been used to do something better, like going to the gym to chisel up my increasingly doughy physique… or perhaps to volunteer myself for community services (eg. free breast examination for college students? Yeah…). But sadly… nevermind.

Anyway, I just would like to say a word of thanks to all of you who have been – as productive as a retarded paraplegic sloth – regularly visiting this site and read the craps that I had churned over these 39 months. Without you, I’m sure I would be just another beefcake in a gym providing pro-bono tits kneading services to college students. -_-

PS: Say, if you guys could tell me how did you first discover my blog, I’d want to be grateful to those who had pimped my site by putting them in my thoughts and links page. Thank you.

banned

Just found out from some concerned readers that my blog has been banned at my own workplace – Company X.

Bloody hell, so much for telling everyone about myself being an awesome leader. Only chicken asses use dirty tactics to undermine their opponents. *Ptuiiiiiii !!!!!*

friendly disclaimer

I came to know that some of you have just discovered my blog. Well, big fucking deal and good for you. I have nothing to say to you and also, please, don’t be confronting me in public about what I’ve written or what you think about me. This blog, is my own personal site for letting out… an extended hidden side of me that I prefer not to discuss in person. I hope you people can respect that…

And then, there might be some posts of mine which may cause you some discomfort, especially those concerning my/our workplace and it involves you, somehow. I can offer no explanation on this difficult behavior of mine. Maybe if I don’t do this (bitching about fucked up people at workplace inside my blog), I’d probably be an even more difficult person. Like, someone you hate, who could backstab your ass and discreetly spit on your keyboard. Who knows.

Hence, the only logical thing that I can offer to you, should you ever feel pissed about what I have written here, is an advice. The advice is – Just find the nearest toilet bowl, put your head into it, and flush. Heheh…

It is only good if you can understand, that the moment you choose to read this sacred site that details the sick side of my personality, you’re making a decision to delve deeper into what I think – and I shall not be held accountable to whatever negative repercussions that might befall on you. Take this as a privileged disclaimer for those of you who knows me personally.

I certainly hope that this will not change anything about our existing friendship. If I tulan you, we probably would never have been friends in the first place. Think about it.

Have a nice day guys.
