Privacy Statement

'Tis the season to tell people exactly what information we do and do not collect. Most sites are doing this because the European Union just passed a law that makes them. I'm not entirely convinced this site is obliged to do any such thing, but I do believe that making people aware of what information is gathered and used on the net is a Very Good Thing. As such, I present to you, to the very best of my knowledge, a list of information that is collected and used by Eviscerati.Org.

Potential site warnings ahead

Submitted by C B Wright on

A reader pointed out a few days ago that he was getting certificate errors and site warnings when he visited my site. I tracked the problem down to a Drupal module that provides the "like" and "+1" widgets for a number of posts, and deactivated it. However, I am re-activating it in order to try to help troubleshoot the issue for the module developer.

This means that for a while when you visit this site your browser might tell you OH MY GOD THIS SITE HAS A PROBLEM BEWARE OR YOU'LL CATCH A VIRUS AND DIE which is a reasonable thing for a browser to report, but is probably not what will actually happen. Please bear with me for a few days.

Thanks!

Update: The problem was patched, and everything should be working again. If you're getting certificate warnings, please let me know, because it's for something new.

Hello Alabama.

I made it. It was a rough trip. I was trying to minimize the pain by splitting it into two pieces -- Saturday driving and Sunday driving.

Saturday driving was supposed to be 5 hours. It wound up being 9 hours because they closed down one of the more important roads I was sort of counting on not being closed down. Sunday I left at 8:30ish and was supposed to arrive around 7:30 (Central time). It wound up being closer to 9 because I had to drive through a pretty heavy rainstorm that apparently spawned a tornado once it hit South Carolina.

But I made it. Expect fun things to appear on this site soonish.

Curveball Fail

Submitted by C B Wright on

One of the things I'd hoped I'd be able to do when I started Curveball was "keep to a damn publishing schedule." This is, after all, modeled after a comic book. It publishes monthly. That's significantly longer than any webcomic or web serial I know of, and under most circumstances it's doable. Even so, during the course of this run I found myself going off the rails, and I spent a lot of time at the beginning of this year improving my workflow and focusing on getting Curveball back on track.

Which has just completely unraveled, officially, as of today.

The May issue of Curveball is not coming out in May. It will be coming out in June. Hopefully the June issue will also be coming out in June.

There is really only one reason for this. I've spent so much time trying to move to another state -- much of that time spent in futilely trying to do the last few things on my own -- that I haven't been able to write. I've been able to work my day job and try, with varying degrees of success, to pack. And that's about it. So Issue 11, while plotted, has not been written. Today, the 31st, is the last day I could reasonably post anything at all and consider it legitimately the "May Issue," and it's just not going to happen.

My apologies to those of you are following the serial. It, like everything else in my life, has been pushed aside and trampled over because I can't manage all of the logistics involved in trying to move AND publish things at the same time.

The good news is I'm moving this weekend, but everything will still be a whirling sea of chaos for a while, and while I hope to get back on the stick and get all my publishing work moving again, I'm too stressed right now to estimate when that's going to happen.

I hate moving. I hate, hate, hate, hate, hate moving.

I Am Still Alive

Submitted by C B Wright on

Hi everyone. I know it's been a while since I've posted... anything at all really. I'm in the process of packing up my house, trying to get it all stuffed away into a storage unit so I can move to Alabama.

I'm not doing it very well.

I have help this week though, and I have high hopes that this weekend I will begin my trek to Montgomery, Alabama. After that, I figure it might be nice if I, you know, started posting stuff again.

Limited Support for Mobile Devices

Submitted by C B Wright on

Eviscerati.Org now has limited support for mobile devices. "Limited" because it's still based on the non-mobile theme and the text isn't very optimized for mobile browser viewing. Tablets will probably do OK. Smartphone browsers will still probably not be the best user experience in the world -- you may want to view the site in landscape mode to mitigate some of the issues.
