Miscellaneous

Things have been quiet, but that's just a clever ruse.

Submitted by C B Wright on

I know I haven't updated much. There are few reasons for this:

1. I am sick. I am sick and I have no more leave, which means I am working while sick. This makes it very hard to focus on things.

2. I can focus enough to try to solve site-related problems, so I've been trying to get the comic pagers to work the way they used to. Unfortunately, while I can focus enough to try to solve the problems, I can't focus enough to actually solve the problems.

3. The sickness has made it harder for me to string together coherent sentences. Just in case you filigree marsupial banana.

That's all. Sorry for the delays. I am working on stuff.

My SSL Certificate has Expired

Submitted by C B Wright on

I let this sneak up on me... again. If you visit this site, you'll be receiving messages from your browser telling you OH MY GOD THE SSL ON THIS SITE IS UNSIGNED AND UNTRUSTED AND HAXX0RS ARE STEALING YOUR RECEPIES because today my SSL Certificate expired but good.

I've been shopping around for a new SSL provider for a while, but it hasn't been easy. SSL Certificates aren't cheap. I'd been using GoDaddy, and they actually were pretty cheap, but after they decided to support SOPA I really haven't had much enthusiasm for giving them any more money.

I just bought a cert from Comodo but I still have to go through all the registration/tinkering business, and I won't be able to do that until I get home. So... this won't be resolved until later tonight.

Eviscerati.Org is now Ad-Free

Submitted by C B Wright on

As I'm writing these words right now I'm looking at an ad on my site exhorting you to pay $5 in order to 30,000 Twitter followers. I'll say it again: an ad on my site is trying to hawk fake Twitter followers for five dollars.

And how much am I getting for the privilege of showing an ad promising to deliver 30,000 sockpuppets to your Twitter account after you pay them less than the cost of a Happy Meal?

Eight cents a day.

I think it's time to acknowledge that, for my site at least, ads just aren't working.

State of the Eviscerati, August 2012

Submitted by C B Wright on

Here's what's happenning at Chez Eviscerati:

Help Desk: Started a new storyline last week. Comics resume updating tomorrow.

The Points Between: I'm actively writing Chapter 23. I expect to be finished with it some time this week.

Curveball: Issue Two should be out Wednesday.

The site now has Forums which I've started to use to log and track site issues. It's very bare-bones at the moment--only two forum groups at the moment--but if you have suggestions or requests I'll be happy to consider them. At the moment you need an account to create new posts but I believe you can respond anonymously.

Drupal 7 tweaks and changes: A few issues got resolved this week. A few more still need to be addressed. More information below the cut.

The Eviscerati.Org/Drupal 7 Changelog

Submitted by C B Wright on

People are noticing that the change from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 brought with it a few changes in the way the site works… and that some of the changes are more accurately described as “regressions,” since in some cases the site has lost functionality that it used to have. This post is an attempt to list as many of the changes that I can think of so you’ll know what is different.
