After spending HOURS under the hood here, tightening screws, cinching down bolts, and looking for vacuum leaks, I finally got things humming along at a pretty respectable speed.  In the process I even “Poped” a few rivets as I have a tendency to do every now and then.

What did I find?

I know some of you expected to find this:

Yes it’s Tuesday and that means the obligatory reminder, and if I hear any groaning the Imperial Storm Troopers, that have been out of sorts lately could easily receive a Search and Destroy mission order.

Therefore, the standard reminder is in effect:

Tuesday is Rottie Radio Night on Your First Choice On the ‘Net!!!

LC Jackboot, Imperial Correspondent and Ambassador to the Outer Blue Rim and Ranter Extraordinaire™ slicing, dicing and stomping the left on Tuesday Truth 7-9:30 CT and yes I might consider taking music requests. That doesn’t mean I’ll play them however.

We haven’t received firm confirmation yet from his Vindictive Invectiveness, so we’ll proceed to announce (at risk to my own rather outdated worthless hide) that I’ll be followed by his Imperial Despotic Benevolence, Misha I with Keep The Home Fires Burning 9:30-12:00 am CT. He’ll take requests too, but be careful what you wish for it may be 30 or 40 years too late.

Reach us on the RadioCIA request line ciarequest AT gmail DOT com or via Yahoo Instant Messenger (tuesdaytruth) for JB / (emperor_misha) Teh Imperator™ obviously.

We do get rather busy on the console, so your patience is appreciated and please, no IM “Buzz” that’s reserved for technical emergencies.


Please note to all listeners: We have been experiencing issues with the Winamp media player that occurs during our handoffs from one studio to another. Listeners, immediately following transfer of the broadcast may hear either James Earl Jones on barbituates or Alvin and the Chimpmunks on crack, issuing forth from your headphones or speakers. Not to worry, if that happens, just reset your player using the “Play Bookmark” function or alternatively you can also just bypass using Winamp altogether and stick with Windows Media Player. It is NOT necessary to reboot your ‘puter to correct. Sorry folks it isn’t something that is under our control to correct, so don’t waste your time telling us about it, M’Kay?

Yeah, me too, although I feel a bit overstuffed, but that’s to be expected this time of year. At least I can still walk under my own power. Most of the time.

But who I’m really talking about is the Imperial Minister of Truth, who has resurfaced to let us all know that he’s still around, he’s just been a little busy as of late. Besides, he does tend to spend a while writing his essays, which is all fine by me. If he only wrote one a year, it’d still be worth waiting for.

So why not pop by and say “hi there, Bill, good to hear from you again?”

Wow. There are few things I can really add after the two awesome contributions below. I fear that anything I might add will seem bloodless and trite by comparison, but that never stopped me in the past, so here goes:

I give thanks for the best family any man ever had. My patient wife who manages to put up with me (no small feat there) and, as if that wasn’t enough, manages to love me on top of it. And, of course, she’s the one who gave me two beautiful little boys and suffered mightily and bravely in the process, something for which no amount of thanks will ever be sufficient.

I give thanks for being an American, for being one of the lucky few to call this shining city on a hill home and, of course, thanks to America herself and her citizens for the warm, unconditional welcome I have been blessed with.

I give thanks to Almighty G-d for putting up with the grumpy, hedonistic atheist that I used to be for decades, all the while smiling patiently as He made wonders happen in my life regardless. While I may never have seen His face, I’m sure that, when I finally found Him, He had a warm smile on his face as he said “welcome home, my wayward son, I knew you’d find your way eventually.”

I give thanks for having the smartest, most compassionate and loyal readers and friends in the world, people that I, in many cases, have yet to meet in person but who, nevertheless, have always been there for me and mine as if we’d known each other forever and lived right next door to each other. A special thank you to the Rottie Staff™ for their tireless work in keeping this site full of excellent content even when I am being a lazy bastard and, of course, to the Imperial Tech Wizard Deej for keeping the pumps pumping and the pipes piping.

And last, but certainly not least, I give thanks to our military heroes, our brave, selfless men and women overseas without whom we’d be just another hole in the ground waiting for the next dictator with territorial aspirations to overrun us (that should have been written in fwench, by the way). I am grateful every day for what you do, what you sacrifice for our sakes here at home, but never more than when holidays roll around and I enjoy them with my family, knowing full well that I wouldn’t be doing so if it weren’t for YOU giving up the opportunity to do the same. And, like my wonderful wife, I would like to extend the same thanks to the families of our troops who are making the exact same sacrifice, only more so because it wasn’t their decision. But if it weren’t for those families’ support and love for their military loved ones’ decision, we most likely wouldn’t have any troops to speak of at all, because no Army can fight for long without the support of the ones they fight for.

Never forget that.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

It is the time when we feel the urge to point out that the Rott has gotten a couple of new sponsors on the left sidebar that we’d like to point your attention toward since they’re every so helpful in keeping the site running AND they have some nifty stuff that you might want to check out.

The first is an old friend of ours, Realm Dekor, who have more wickedly kewl accessories for your home than you can shake a well-sharpened stick at, and the second one is an ad for a new book, “America Falling”, by Don Brockette about terrorists launching a campaign of bloodshed and murder in the U.S. All too plausible, unfortunately, thanks to the spineless feckwits in D.C. who bend over for every pisslamic terrorist in the world and their fifth column helpers in this country (yes, CAIR, we’re looking at you), not to mention their open borders policies that mean that any camel bothering, dish towel-wearing caveman can leisurely cross into the country any time he wishes.

Check ‘em out.

Buy This Book!

Just in case you’d forgotten (I almost had), today is:

 

More information right here but, as to myself, I’ll be off to Wally World to replenish supplies…

Remember: It’s better to have and not need than to need and not have, so load up those buggies and buy ’till you bleed. Give the GFWs a heart attack!

Thatisall.

Not that any of our Loyal Citizens of the Empire could possibly forget, we do have guest readers passing through the Realm, and might not be aware that besides having an Imperial presence covering the blogosphere we do in fact, also control the Intertubewebnet via Radio.

Therefore, the standard reminder is in effect:

UPDATE from His Imperial Dorkiness: Sorry to let y’all down, but my throat is feeling like crap, which makes broadcasting a bit hard. I’ll be back in force next week, however. Again: My apologies for the late notice.

Okay, now is the time for some feedback.

I figure I have about two more days of off-and-on tinkering before I will be done. It would be good to hear some thoughts and concerns as I finish tying everything together here.

The instant chat isn’t going to remain on the front page as a permanent fixture. It can be toggled on and off there whenever it is needed, but normally it will be accessable from its little tab at the top of the page below the header.

In case you didn’t notice, I changed the URL for the music picks. If you are bookmarked, you might want to change it now. Also, I have an RSS feed set up. I already have the entire week’s picks queued up to post at midnight ever day. Tuesday’s is kind of a fun one.

I still have some sidebar work to do. Once all of this is done I will make a second copy of this theme that those of you with older monitors with the low resolution can pick.

It is me, your ever-meddlin’ Liberal.

I am sure you all have been experiencing the ooozing speed this site tends to work at lately.  Sloths and your garden variety slugs seem to be sprinting around.

As you can see, the site looks radically different right now.  There are no plugins, and the theme is the default WordPress theme. 

It is also a LOT faster.

I have taken everything back to the basics here.  All the way back.  I will be spending the next day or two evaluating each plugin and checking out the Rottie theme for issues. 

I wasn’t going to say anything until it was time, but I have been working on a new theme design for the Rott, because the old one is …well, old.  The  basic code on it was written back when WP 1.5.2 was new.  There have been some major changes since then and I am sure that the architecture of the theme has areas that are waaaaaay out of date.  Up until now, I have been applying bandaids to the site each time a major update.  NOW I am completely rewriting the theme.

The site is functional this way, so you can still enjoy it.  If you experience some strangeness here from time-to-time, just wait — it will quickly pass.  Just be careful of the nails on the ground and that big gaping hole where the furnace used to be.

So let me know if you are having problems here…

Give us more, O Emperor! »
