David W. Boles’ Urban Semiotic is back!
I changed DNS and servers for this blog a mere six hours ago and I am now back live saying, “Hi!”

I will have a full report for you soon on the server move and the reasons for it and to celebrate the kind help I received in transit!
Oh, and comments are turned back on so have a heyday with me!

  1. Frankly, Robin, I’m disappointed! (and you say, “and stop calling me ‘Frank!'”)
    Instead of cleaning you could have been writing down longhand comments in your notebook that could then be typed up later and posted here! :mrgreen:
    We forgive you, though; we know you’re still in the bliss of a beautiful new WordPress template.

  2. You asked for it:
    First of all, Papa Smurf didn’t create Smurfette. Gargamel did. She was sent in as Gargamel’s evil spy with the intention of destroying the Smurf village, but the overwhelming goodness of the Smurf way of life transformed her. And as for the whole gang-bang scenario, it just couldn’t happen. Smurfs are asexual. They don’t even have reproductive organs under those little white pants. That’s what’s so illogical, you know, about being a Smurf. What’s the point of living if you don’t have a dick?

  4. I did, I know a lot of quotes by heart like from Se7en and Swimming With Sharks but that’s a little long for me.
    How about this:
    Donnie: You are such a f*cka**
    Sister: Did you just call me a f*cka**? You can go suck a fuck.
    Donnie: Oh please tell me…how does one suck a f*ck?
    This is fun πŸ™‚ Obviously the movie is a lot more than this. This movie is amazing. I still to this day debate over what I really think it was about. Trust me that you’d have an amazing post about this movie.

  6. Frank — Thanks for the URL! Very cool!
    Carla — Ha! You are so funny. I’ll look at the ceiling, too, so you won’t stick out. πŸ™‚ Oh, and uhÒ€¦ it all depends on how you define “heyday!” ;lol:

  8. Frank — This would all be over if you had just played along and said, “And stop calling me Frank” but since you never did you shall always and forever remain…
    Carla — Is it a violation of Blog Policy for you to use a single Mr. Green as an entire post?!! I THINK THAT’S A RESERVED FEATURE!!!

  10. Surely you didn’t think this comment string could go all day without me? (“Don’t call me Shirley,” he says.)
    Glad to see you’re here, David. I actually did try to get into the boles.com site earlier and wondered where you were. Saw this was down and that was highly unusual. Where are the guys? Oh, wait, Frank’s here.

  11. Paula! — I have missed you today and I’m glad to get my fix from you now. πŸ™‚ Why, I’d never call you “Shirley” but Frank might! Yeah, I moved allllllllll my ganglion of sites from one host to another host. More on that tomorrow probably…
    Carla! — I was merely approving the non-singular-use of Mr. Green I wasn’t even paying attention to the fact that you were crying. πŸ™‚

  12. Robin — Oh, no! You’re back! πŸ™‚
    Carla — I’m staring at the ceiling!
    suzanne — It’s good to see you here and it’s wonderful to see Lucy back in her chair! She was missing most of the day when I checked on her.
    Frank! — Be careful! ROBIN IS BACK! And she’s writing fromÒ€¦ INSIDE YOUR HOUSE!

  13. Good to see you back David. My blog is down at the moment, but strangely overnight I got a comment. So it is working, just very very slowly and timing out. My server (free space which comes with my ADSL connection) is probably overloaded or something. Some simple links work but WordPress just won’t show up.
    Since Urban Semiotic was down too, I thought there was some WordPress conspiracy for a few seconds, like October 8th was WP no blog day or something. However, you’re back and I’m not, so that can’t be right :-D.
    DNS moves are hairy… so good to see that you didn’t lose anything.
    Do you have anything specifically in mind for your new template? I designed my own template but I haven’t really finished it yet… haven’t got a good idea for a header image.

  14. Frank — I’m awake now! The rain here is killing me and my leg and the forecast if for 10 more days of rain. Gah!
    Robin — I find it interesting you think Frank is in your subconscious… πŸ™‚
    trench — Thanks for the congrats on the move. It was a spectacular success and I will talk more about that in my post for the day as soon as I go over and disconnect everything from my previous host. The template I am currently using is superb. I love the design. I am now looking for something unique that no one else will have and for that you gotta pay. There are a few artists out there I have contacted and I’m waiting to hear back from them on timeline and pricing.
    fruey — Yeah, I can’t hit your blog now either! Ooo, that hurts. A WordPress Killing Day. That would scare me because it would work so well and a lot of people use WordPress! If you are serious about blogging you should consider getting your own space and get away from the free stuff from your ISP. You’ll be much happier. I have ideas for the new template but mainly only tonally. I don’t want to restrict the designer from using their talents. I have contacted a few of the template designers I really like. We’ll see if there’s any interest. I’m in no hurry to make a change.
    Carla — NOW I’M LOOKING AT YOU! :mrgreen:
