We have a house.

We Have Keys


Come on.
How freaking cool is this shit?!

We also finally met the current owners. They. Are. Hippies.
In hiding.
The husband asked if I was going to any of the jam band shows this summer at Innsbrook. Nice to know we'll have some folks to drink with, apparently! Phil Lesh, moe., Disco Biscuits, The Umph, etc etc etc...

Yeah, it has been a good day.

T-Minus 18.5 hours...

We close in 18.5 hours.
Sweet Christ.
There's still a ton of packing to do - mainly clothes at this point - and a ton of stuff to get out of the house and taken 'round back to the trash heap, but wow.
Eighteen and a half hours.
We od the final walk-through in 2.5 hours. I guess at that point it'll be closed and locked only to be opened a few hours later when we - WE - are the new owners. Honestly, I've been waiting for this day for a long fucking time - what with my sometimes foolish belief in the American Dream. Technically, I guess it's not ours until the mortgage is paid, but still...
Fuck... we're going to own a house.

And, of course, we have no internet service scheduled to be there as of yet, so... well, that may take a bit. I HOPE to just roll down to Verizon on Friday and grab some boxes as the place is already wired for FIOS, but something tells me it ain't that simple. Regardless...

I will be back online from home soon and TheRightRevRob will once again terrorize obnoxious cunts on XBL.

Test Picture From My Mobile

Testing the Mail to Post

This is just a test of the email-to-post function.
If you're reading this test message then it is painfully obvious that you are sorely lacking any other type of diversion.
It would behoove you to go outside and enjoy the spring (or fall, depending on where you are).


Really.
There is no more to this post other than what you have seen. Don't ask for anything else - it ain't coming.

Damnable Yahoo

So, moving a domain currently registered with Yahoo to a new service (like GoDaddy or Network Solutions) is quickly becoming a severe pain in the ass.
Let me give a few tips here:

1) Setup your account and order the domain transfer from GoDaddy.
2) Login to your Yahoo account and unlock the domain.
3) Wait 30 minutes.
4) Follow the directions on transferring the domain you receive in your email - it will be sent to the Administrative Account listed in your Yahoo profile.
5) Eventually the Pending Transfers screen in your GoDaddy accoun t will show "Accept transfer at current registrar" -- this means that MelbourneIT (Yahoo's registrant) has to approve the transfer. Everything I have read states that this will likely take upwards of 5 days.

Look, I know DNS changes aren't fucking immediate. I get that - I change them all the time for any one of a hundred clients, but having to wait 5 FUCKING DAYS to transfer ownership of a domain is not only ridiculous, it's... well, it's just fucking ridiculous.

In the meantime, I have placed some forwards out there so hopefully the 3 visitors who actually read this page will get re-directed properly.

It's a bit shambling right now, but hopefully in the next 30 minutes all will be re-directed.

UPDATE:
*.SPIDLER.ORG is now forwarding correctly.
WWW.SPIDLER.ORG is not.

Testing One, Two, Three...

I don't know how temporary this site will be, but if I can figure out how to import my archives and pics, then it may end up becoming permanent. In the meantime, my DNS is all updated, so let me know if anything appears wonky.
