The website and its assorted network miscreants were being attacked and waylaid over the last week or so. God I hate maintaining the website. So many predators!
Bots – fuck you!
Crawlers – ibid!
I remember when the internet was so “nice” – a great place for a little picnic. Now it’s as dirty as . . . the internet – nothing dirtier in life.
And then you spammers, sending me info about your inconsequential doings and events and inventions and . . . Every time I meet someone at a gig or event and they say, – “I’d like to keep in touch. Let’s exchange emails” – more than likely, soon after, I’m receiving newsletters from them telling me everything about what they are doing. This has happened too much to count. Don’t do that, alright!
I’ve missed this little stupid gif blog.
The worse thing about the whole attack was that at first my host wanted to charge us more money because so many crawlers and bots were attacking our website. Only when I demanded that they help that things got better.
Too many people think they have the answers for what we should do. They have nothing, even less than nothing, just conjecture and subjective perspective which always leads to erroneous suggestions. Shut up please!
I actually feel pretty good about getting the websites back up and working.
Ha ha ha! We bought business cards per suggestion of a friend and it was as worthless an investment/expense as the continuing payment of the hosting fee for these websites. Who cares? After getting a slew of cards for last weekend’s events, not one person asked for a card or contact info. I forced one card on someone. Probably ended up in the garbage bin or lying on the grass where a dog spit-up on it. A total waste!
