Re: RIP Chris Cornell

The official report is that it's a "suicide by hanging" but given the timing and so on I can't help but wonder if that's the usual media-friendly way of talking about autoerotic asphyxiation. Whatever led to his death, it's a shame, and it's sad that he didn't have whatever support he need...

Re: The MP3 Is Officially Dead, According To Its Creators

You don't think this has anything to do with all the patents on mp3 running out in 2017 do ya? The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits, a division of the state-funded German research institution that bankrolled the MP3's development in the late '80s, recently announced that its "licen...

Re: Congrats! You've been blacklisted! (Certificate issue?)

Also worth noting that this is a problem at the intersection of shared hosting and SSL, and is why it's still a bad idea to run plugins like "SSL Everywhere" that attempt to force your connection to SSL based solely on the server responding to https requests. I much prefer the Firefox appr...

Flippant reviews-from-the-hip: JB - We need to get a time machine so that we can go back in time and make this the well-known folk song that it deserves to be.

Re: Congrats! You've been blacklisted! (Certificate issue?)

Dreamhost provides a default https connection for all sites but don't provide a cert by default, so if you try to force a non-SSL Dreamhost site to be SSL that's the error you get. Look at the CN on the cert and you'll see that it's usually a self-signed thing with the underlying hostname of the Dre...

Oh man I've been looking for an affordable mandocello for years. Where did you end up finding it, and how much did it cost if you don't mind my asking? I think my most obscure instrument is the SIDstation , or maybe the Yamaha TX7 (a less-known rackmount version of the venerable DX7). I also just bu...

Re: Song Fight Live 2017 in ... ???

Texas doesn't work for me, I need to be able to pee without getting arrested or shot.

I don't think any of the Seattle contingent are up for hosting but I'd totally go for Portland or SF Bay Area again. Also are any of the Long Beach folks still around? That might be a nice Left Coast change.

Re: Themesong Fight 2017

I think for the first time ever I'm going to be late on a sidefight, because I've just been sick for the last month and a half and my singing voice is still worse than usual. :(

(I do have an idea for a theme song, although I still don't know much about the band or its members.)
