Privacy Statement

Submitted by C B Wright on

'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.

... You can download podcasts now....

Submitted by C B Wright on

So it was pointed out to me today that it wasn't possible to actually download any of the mp3's of the podcasts I've been posting to this site. I was confused by this, because any time I'd look at a page where a podcast was posted I'd see a download link under the player.

It was a permissions problem. I didn't realize it was a permissions problem because I have an admin account, and of course administrators can see everything. The permissions are now set correctly, so y'all should be able to download any and all podcasts posted on this site.

Sorry about that! Fixed now.

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.

The Return of the Forums

Submitted by C B Wright on

On the theory that it's not always convenient to have to find an old post to comment on it, and on the (further) theory that some old posts with locked comments are still worth discussing, and on the (yet one more) theory that there are times when you'll want to start a topic that has something to do with something on this site without waiting for me to create a post on it myself, I have, once again, set up forums on this site.
