Back where it belongs…

Monday, December 6th, 2010

I realized that I had broken a lot of old, existing links by moving this blog to a new location on the server (basically, a directory named /blogold/), so I’ve moved it back.
There’s nothing much on the new blog, but its location is here:
IbaDaiRon Blog (New)
(This doesn’t really mean I’m coming back to blogging here. […]

Hot Arab Women With Large Breasts!

Monday, December 10th, 2007

Will NOT be found anywhere on this website.
But you’d be surprised how many people seem to be ending up here as a result of googling for them.
So I thought it would be interesting to see what this post does to my hits over the next few days.
(I’m adding the “Breast-soothing” category tag, which is supposed […]

Mr Dean asks…

Where I read new articles?
Good question.
Here, of course. Sorry…I’ve been mainly occupied most of the last week or so with the office move (a snafu from day one, let me tell y’all), a little with figuring final grades for the semester (due at the end of the month), and with various side interests and living […]

Anybody notice the outage?

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

I don’t know if anyone noticed…but the database server for the site was down again.
I hadn’t checked in much yesterday, so I didn’t notice until after midnight or so my time.
I fired off a rather pissed-off letter to Yahoo Support about it…using a draft of a longer complaint I started to write back on June […]

Here we go again…

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

It looks like the nice people at Yahoo! are doing something to the databases again…with their usual level of expertise.
I tried to access the blog here a little after 4:00 and got the old database error message. Hopefully it was just a minor glitch and not the beginning of another run of intermittent downtime like […]

Free Speech America

Tuesday, May 8th, 2007

Owner of, please stop comment-spamming my blog.
I tried accessing your website to see if you were a sadly misguided and over-zealous but real webmaster. Your site took too long to begin to respond appropriately, which is always a bad sign. I therefore conclude that you’re just another stupid spammer. Get a life.
And btw, publishing […]

It wasn’t solidarity…

Monday, March 26th, 2007

with the ADiots—who haven’t had a post to their mailing list since the middle of February—or anything silly like that. It wasn’t that I’ve been sick or really all that busy with work or other pursuits.
No, none of these are the reasons I haven’t blogged since early in the month.
Don’t know what it was (or […]

Comment blogging?

Monday, January 15th, 2007

I just double-posted comments over on Ltart’s blog and after the second one cycled through, I noticed that the particular thread I had commented on had 33 comments.
Several times, we’ve had little contests over there trying to get the comments for a particular post up to 100 or 200. (I think we’ve actually done it, […]

No head for anniversaries!

Saturday, October 7th, 2006

Damn…I completely forgot (again!) and let yesterday go by without posting this!
October 6 is the date on which I came to Japan in 1987. I have been living here now for 19 years. (DAMN!)
October 6 is also the date on the oldest entry in this blog. IDR Blog is now two years old! (Whoopee!)
OK. Back […]

An odd day for searches

Saturday, August 26th, 2006

Was kinda bored, so I got a copy of the current access log and searched for “search?”, to see what has brought people here in the last half-day or so. Odd results, as usual.

Online again!

Monday, August 21st, 2006

Looks like this blog’s done gone online again!
I’m imagining that sung by Willie. You know Willie, he used to do that thang with wailin’, Willie and wailin’ and the boys.
Anyway, not clear yet what happened yesterday other than that there was a problem with the provider’s MySQL server. Everything seems to be working OK now.
Keep […]

Not that I’m feeling left out, or anything!
In time he came back to the conference room, found it dark and Paul asleep on the table with a guard’s robe thrown over him and a ditty pack for a pillow. The Duke walked softly down the length of the room and onto the balcony overlooking the […]

Eek. I’ve been nabbed by Marc AND L. Tart. Where was this kind of action when I was younger?!
1. One book that changed your life?
The Holy Bible, in various versions, translations and portions in the original languages. Exposure at an early age is the best preventative against religious belief and fervor later in life that […]

New Minimalist IQ Test for Commenters

Friday, August 11th, 2006

The spammers who have caught on to the checkbox and changed their bots accordingly have become either numerous or active enough to warrant a change to the code. The new method doesn’t require any real smarts, just an ability to read and type.
