We’re Down

kent-brockman

Support Your Local Gunfighter is down. For me, at least. I get nothing but a blank screen, which is actually better content than is usually posted there. Bear with us, and hopefully, we’ll be back in two shakes of a lamb’s tail.

Yeah, I don’t know what that means…

Hangin’ With Mr. Obama

Obama Ignores VoterFry cook Darnell Summers appeared on Google Hangout with Barack Obama – is this a thing, because it sounds ridiculous – to whine about his hours being cut because of Obamacare.

Naturally, the results were typical of a president who cares about voters solely on Election Day.

During a Google Hangout session on Friday, fry cook Darnell Summers told President Obama that his hours were cut due to the Affordable Care Act. “We were broken down to part time to avoid paying health insurance,” he said. Summers explained that he makes $7.25 an hour and has been on strike four times seeking a wage increase. “We can’t survive, it’s not livin’,” he said.

The president responded by urging states to increase the minimum wage. “I am working to encourage states, governors, mayors, state legislators to raise their own minimum wage,” Obama said.

The president did not address Summers’s comments about the healthcare law.

Of course he didn’t, because 1) he could not defend his ridiculous healthcare law, and 2) he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about Mr. Summers’ problem. Worse still, the “president” throws out a ludicrous argument about raising the minimum wage, which would cause businesses to lay off more workers, and make Mr. Summers’ problems worse.

Stay Alive, I Will Find You!

tech

Yeah, that’s me rocking out a Last of the Mohicans quote. 1992 called; it wants its obscure references back. If you made it here, you know the main site is down. It shouldn’t be down for long, but since I am already being deluged with e-mails, I wanted to post the info here… for the three of you who copied down the backup blog’s url.

So… what’s going on?

Houston, We Have A Problem

We-have-a-problem-HoustonFor those readers who actually copied down the backup blog’s url, I have not quit SYLG. Apparently the site’s servers are down, and error messages are cluttering my inbox, taking away precious gigabytes usually reserved for Christina Hendricks photos.

Thankfully, Jim is on the motherf***er, and the main should be online soon. Or not. It depends upon Cthulhu’s reaction to my sacrificial offering.

The Main Site Is Back Online

I’m still very, very pissed off, but new posts will appear there . . . until I get thrown into the gulag again.

UPDATE: In case you still can’t get to the main site, try this. Erase your cookies, use the right url (http://supportyourlocalgunfighter.com) and refresh your screen.

Because The Blog Issues Aren’t Maddening Enough

I know I’m beating the blog story like Chris Brown beats Rihanna, but I wanted to mention a pet peeve of mine.

Between yesterday and today, I’ve received a few dozen e-mails asking about the blog’s status. Most people remembered the main blog’s e-mail and naturally inquired. No problem there, as I’m happy to explain what happened that brings us to this site.

What is maddening, however, is that most of the e-mails finished like this:

1. What did you do?
2. How bad did you f**k up?
3. Who did you piss off?

It’s as if everyone thinks I’m a troublemaking asshole that contributed to his own blog’s demise.

Now, I guess you can say this entire thing is my fault. If you want to go that way, fine. But when an obscure photographer comes after you for a photo you posted three years ago, it’s hardly a forseeable situation. I deleted the photo and replaced it with another one. I would have deleted the post, but my server banned me almost immediately after it notified me of the issue. I cannot log into the site, let alone edit it.

So yes, you got me. I f**ked up by not expecting a copyright infringement claim for a photo I posted in 2009.

Boston Uncommon

Boston Speedo Santa Run

There hasn’t been this much alcohol and spandex in such close proximity since Bill Clinton’s inauguration.

At the 13th annual Speedo Santa Run, joggers took to the streets wearing almost nothing as they raced through Boston to raise money for children’s charities. Runners braved the brisk winter temperatures in little more than their underwear.

Started 12 years ago amongst five friends in a bar, the run has exploded into a holiday tradition with hundreds of participants raising more than $1 million for children’s charities.

They should put some of that money aside for the frostbite victims. This race would give the term “blue balls” an entirely different meaning.

A Blog Update

Okay, here’s how we stand with reference to the main site.

Obviously, we’re still suspended at the old server – and a big frak you to them, by the way – but Jim is actively looking for a new host. He’s spending his Sunday off downloading our old files – all 24,000 of them – so we can make the move. I’ll be posting here in the interim, and it may be days – or weeks – until we’re back up at the old url. I’ll keep you advised.

Suffice to say, this is easily the worst issue I’ve ever had to deal with in seven and a half years of blogging. I don’t know how I’ll ever get my full audience back, and the daily hits went from 1,400 to 200. It’s been a lot like starting over from scratch.

That being said, this is home for now, and I’ll get back to the regular SYLG schedule starting tomorrow. I appreciate all of you who have sought me out, and for all of the nice messages when you realized I was still blogging.

Most especially, I want to thank Jim for all of the work he’s put into getting us back online. You may want to thank him, too, because without his expertise, this blog would be dead.

UPDATE: I just saw this on the blog dashboard. Apparently, a lot of people want to know what happened to the main site:

If The Muumuu Fits…

California Women Labeled Fat Girls

Note to wait staff: When you’re serving fat girls, you shouldn’t actually type “fat girls” on the receipt.

Christine Duran, Christina Huerta and Isabel Robles were having a good time at the Cameo Club Casino restaurant in Stockton but when they asked for the check they couldn’t believe their eyes.

I got the bill, and I was like, why does the receipt say, “fat girls?”‘ Duran told News 10.

The ladies quizzed their waiter when he returned to their table but he denied any involvement. He said that Jeff, whose name was on the receipt, must have typed the offensive slur into the computer as he was taking their order. But he said Jeff had gone for the night.

Yeah, Jeff left early so he could hit the gym before going home. *Hint, hint*
