 Apparently, the following must have left the rest of Management™ temporarily speechless, because nobody has even mentioned the fact that this Tuesday past, this site reached a new benchmark of

Give us more, O Emperor! »

It is that time of the week again.

And we sure wouldn’t want anyone to miss out, as the Imperial Torturer™ tell us the Dungeon Gameroom is at capacity from last week’s no-shows.

Of course, the standard lineup is on tap:

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.

Immediately followed by his Imperial Vileness, 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.

Reach us on the RadioCIA request line ciarequest AT gmail DOT com or via Yahoo Instant Messenger (tuesdaytruth) / (emperor_misha)

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

Be there early, as we’ve been running at near capacity on seating.

As is the case twice a year, EVERY year, those of us who run something that depends on the usage of correct time are screwed because of the Congressional Clownshoes and their Moronic Feelgood Measures™, more specifically the Daylight Savings Time that they keep moving around every time they feel the need to prove to the even bigger imbeciles that vote for them that they’re actually doing something.

So if the post times for your comments seem strange, that’s why. You see, thanks to the overpaid, underworked, corrupt, graft-sucking parasites in DC, yours truly has to fix the code every time we move from CST to CDT and vice-versa and no, I don’t get a check from the Parasitic Pissants on the Potomac™ to stay up until 3 am to do so.

Anyway, the time is correct now (well, not exactly, since Wordpress’ version of UTC is about 6 or 7 minutes ahead of the UTC that the rest of the world uses, but close enough), just don’t get confused if a comment you post now appears to have been posted before something you posted earlier.

We know. Time traveling sucks. You should see the things it does to the grammar of Imperial Galactic Standard, but that’s a subject for another day. Or year. Or decade.

Thatisall.

Yes, we’re sure that you’ve been wondering why we haven’t gotten around to this sooner, because we’ve been wondering ourself.

The author of the excellent, outSTANDING “Unsung Glory” series, LC Crunchie 0311, Imperial Military Historian, has been long overdue for a promotion. Not to mention that it seems rather silly for His Imperial Majesty to post, unedited, his wondrous submissions when he might as well be posting them himself.

So we offered him to become a full-time Minion of the Empire and he, thank G-d, graciously accepted.

So please welcome to The Management™ LC Crunchie, who will henceforth wield all of the Tools of Empire in his more than capable hands.

P.S.: Besides, we bloody well NEED a bona fide, arse-kicking Jarhead to keep you maggots in line around here, so consider this your Fair Warning™.

You might in the past have relied on His Imperiousness’ soft heart and gentle nature and, if so, bully for you. You’re now under the supervision of the USMC, so I strongly suggest that you start behaving.

TUESDAY !!!

Baseball is over, so you have no excuse as it’s: ROTTIE RADIO NIGHT !

You betcha! 5 solid hours of the ass-kickingest radio that the Intertubes have to offer. Please exercise caution, if there are any loony, librul, leftards about, ensure all windows are closed and sharp objects are under lock and key. Otherwise our official Imperial Trash Technician™ will have quite the mess to deal with.

Standard Lineup O’ Doom:

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.

Immediately followed by his Imperial Vileness, 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.

We do get rather busy on the console, so your patience is appreciated.

We’ve been nearly sold out the last few weeks so grab your chair and a libation early.

Welcome back, and welcome to the new digs!

All that needs to be done now is that I need to see if there’s anything about the front page that can be streamlined a bit, because other than that, things are running SMOOTH.

You may unfasten your seat belts now :)

It’s time to tune in for:

ROTTIE RADIO TUESDAY!

Guaranteed to not lag on you, drive your liberal neighbors nuts (er, nuttier), and get you in an overall great mood for the rest of the interminable workweek.

As always, the lineup is as follows:

LC Jackboot, Imperial Correspondent and Ambassador to the Outer Blue Rim and Ranter Extraordinaire™ goes ballistic on Idiotarians with vim and vigour on Tuesday Truth from 7-9:30 CT.

Immediately followed by his Imperial Rottieness Misha I with Keep The Home Fires Burning 9:30-12:00 am CT. As always, the request line is wide open on Yahoo (emperor_misha) or ciarequest AT gmail DOT com. We’ll do our best to honor any wishes you can come up with as long as we have ‘em in the library AND they’re not Barbra Streisand (which we wouldn’t have in the library anyway, except for mocking purposes).

Don’t miss either show or you will be sorry.

Also, Dumbledore is teh ghey. In case you didn’t know. Good thing we weren’t witnesses to the “disciplining sessions” that he so adored.

Sorry about the constant downtimes on the site.

Apparently there’s some issue with the new server not being able to handle the load, and since there appears to be no other places to move it to, I’m left in a bit of a pickle, since I obviously can’t run the site if it’s down due to overload 85% of the time. There wouldn’t be much point in that, now would there? On the other hand, I don’t have several hundred bucks a month to pump into a dedicated server, so that ain’t an option either.

I suppose I could just pack it in, but I’m too stubborn for that so I don’t see that happening.

Anyway, in case you’re one of the lucky ones managing to get through in the few windows while the server is not overloaded, that’s what’s been going on. I’ll figure out what to do next somehow.

Thatisall.

UPDATE: Things will be much better soon, so please bear with us. A different and much more powerful server is getting ready for the 25th and, in the meantime, our hosts will see if splitting some of the resources over a couple of servers temporarily won’t speed things up a bit, just to get us through the next few days a bit smoother. But, regardless, the 25th is when the move is.

Once again, we apologize for the intermittent downtimes and thank you for coming back regardless.

Also, I should point out that Dave is kind enough to host the Bark on his server, for free, until everything is back up to speed. Just click on the link at the top as you used to and you’ll be taken there. You’ll have to log in over there as well, but it’s the same username and password that you use here.

THANKS, DAVE!

UPDATE the Second: In case anybody sees this, the move is now confirmed. It will be this evening, commencing at 9PM Eastern. Hang in there, and see you on the other side.

UPDATE the Third: Something popped up last night at the server farm (those things happen), so the move has been delayed to tonight, 10-26-2007.

Our thanks to the two or three readers who still persistently and loyally keep checking back. Our thanks and our apologies.

As you may have noticed, we have experienced intermittent outages on the site over the last days.

It has been determined that this was due to some in-”fighting” over resources on the server and, as a result, our gracious hosts have decided to move us to a brand spanking new server with plenty of room to play on.

Of course such a move isn’t quite as simple as it sounds, particularly since the Empire is a big affair so, beginning at 9 PM EDT tonight, you may experience some more weirdness as everything is packed, moved and unpacked again in the new digs. It will also mean that if you post after that time, your comment and/or post may just miss the moving van, which will mean that once the move is over and the new place is open for business, your words of wisdom will be gone.

I’ll be posting an “all clear” as soon as everything’s done, which will be when we unpack the sparkly and baptize the new palace properly. Just a note: Please, please PLEASE try to keep the bloodstains off the marble this time, will ya? Once the sticky stuff congeals, it’s living HELL to get it off again.

We now return to our irregularly scheduled programming.

Thatisall…

UPDATE:ALL CLEAR!!!

Alright, we’re done. It turned out to be a bigger job than expected, but things should be running on all cylinders again around here. You may unfasten your seatbelt and, in case you managed to do so, now would be a good time to wipe the spilled drinks off of your neighbors’ laps.

…which stands to reason, since a lot of good shit seems to happen to thoroughly bad people as well, or Hillary and her cohorts would be busy selling pencils on street corners. And the rest of us could get a huge kick out of consistently refusing to buy any, but I digress…

The thing is, whereas I can live with good stuff happening to bad people even when they don’t deserve it, it breaks my heart when bad stuff happens to good people, because they most certainly don’t deserve it. It’s even worse when the good people in question happen to be my very closest and dearest friends, as is the case here.

Our very own LC Jackboot and his lovely wife are, as you may or may not know, recovering from the financial hole in which one finds oneself when bad shit happens to you outside of your control and you end up shooting off whatever meagre savings you might have in order to stave off the inevitable or, hopefully, hold your nose above water until better times return. And then sometimes, just as better times are about to return and you can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel, even more crap hits the fan. Every time you patch up one hole, two more holes appear and it just won’t. stop. happening. Your car breaks down, the kids get sick, the roof leaks, the pipes burst etc. etc. etc.

Jackboot and Mrs. have been going through a period like that and, since he’s who he is, he’s been keeping mum about it. Not one to whine and moan or even ask for a hand when the ship is sinking. It’s a guy thing. So he’s never mentioned it with a word until I find out, through other channels, that he’s sitting in a house where half the power is out, his business connection to the Intertubes is cut off and G-d knows what else. But will he ask me or any of the Rotties for help just to get over the hump? Oh no. Which I respect. I know all about pride, even when it’s carried to its logical extreme and parts beyond.

However, I’m not him, so there’s not a damn thing he can do to stop me from asking. I know, I’m evil that way.

So what I’m asking, very humbly, is that if you happen to have a few coins laying around under the sofa cushions, it would be more than just a little bit appreciated if you could part with them and throw them in the PayPal tip jar on the left sidebar, right above the T-shirt in the section called “Support the Rott.” I’ll make sure that it gets to him immediately. I’ll do what I can myself, but I sure would appreciate anything you can part with too. Don’t sell your children’s kidneys or anything, however.

I’ll deal with him and his reaction once he finds out what I’ve been up to :-)

Thank you in advance. Not a handout, just a hand up, for somebody who’s a truly good man.
