Balloon Juiceocalypse Refuge Open Thread

We have a working server, we have bandwidth, we have archives, we have popcorn, and we have sympathy with folks from our sister blog as it goes through this traumatic transformation.

Make yourselves at home if you can’t find a warmer corner of the intertubes to hang out in. No gouging, no biting, no goolie shots.

Progress report:

Nope. Me neither.


Also too and furthermore:

First!

No gouging, no biting, no goolie shots.

Wait, I thought you said this was for Balloon Juice refugees.

Oh, the Juicers aren’t so bad. But watch out for their pets.

Heh. Second comment in and we got an argument. ;0)

How’s it going, TMJ? Good to see you again.

Not too bad, and yourself?

Trucking along, thanks. Did my shoulder in with RSI at the tail end of the election, so had to take time out, but slowly trying to get back in the blog groove again.

OK [taps] is this one on?

Can somebody put another log onto the fire? Dogless here in Mayberry.

@mike I have a dog in my lap and MIB3 in BLURAY. Plus rumproast

Life is grand!

ABL is gonna kill JGC

So I loaded up a bunch of balloon juice tabs for to read and went off to dinner. Came back, started up computer, opened firefox, and it denied any knowledge whatsoever of a previous session. There were 17 tabs you POS! I am so disgruntled I might have to go pack a bowl…

It’s still accessible, just read-only. Though faced with the choice between reloading 17 tabs or a bowl, it’s probably not much of a contest.

I’ve got to turn in, but feel free to make use of the facilities.

The bowl won.

Good Morning!  It’s a rainy day in GA and Balloon Juice is still down.  Someone wake Mistermix

Balloon Juice is now back up.

If you see the top post titled “This is the old server,” you either need to wait and let your ISP’s DNS server catch up, or hit Shift-Reload, in which case you should see a top post titled “This is the New Server,” and you’re home and dry.

in what form is balloon=juice back up?
how do i access it from windows 7?

I recall first looking at this new ‘internet’ thing with my programmer husband a few decades ago; my conclusion was BFD, who cares, this will never interest anyone (yeah, I know; I’m quite the Nostrodumbass). 

Now the internet hosts communities of such intensity that a temporary blog outtage is an event, and ABL will be justified in smacking Cole upside the head for that kind of trolling….

I’d email Cole and the entire list of frontpagers over there. Repeatedly.

Silly, you didn’t count on the power of porn.

B4, my husband says the same thing; porn (and cat videos) is why the web exists.  He says this as a web developer who toils endlessly at making more web stuff for a company that has nothing to do with porn, but is sure there’s a pony in there somewhere and as long as they keep making fancier, more interactive web pages, the money will come.

I actually think videos of teh kittehs are an even bigger driver than porn anymore.  ;-)

Pfft, I’ve read the entire internet and to be honest, it’s not all that interesting. That’s why I am now mentoring the local Young Republican Creationist Society.

“The bowl won.”  Well, duh.

@YAFB: Good news!  We ought to be in for a delightful Trumpertantrum.

Meh. Shame, it might distract from him and Malkin knocking chunks off each other on Twitter.

Trump’s not finished building the original Menie golf course (as I explained a while back, for financial reasons, nothing to do with the experimental offshore wind farm, he’s just lying about that and using it as cover for his usual financial malfeasance and an excuse to oppose our renewables program), and he already wants to build another one further down the coast. He claims that the Menie course is doing well, but locals report big gaps in the daily sign-ups.

The latest was that he was going to erect a large marquee at Menie as a temporary substitute for some of the permanent buildings that may never get built (without the hotel and housing development he originally envisaged, the course has no long-term financial future, according to somebody I know in planning up there).

If the winds up there live up to their usual reputation (we’ve just endured two weeks of blustery near-gales and serious snowdrifting all over the country, and it’s not over yet), the marquee may prove a very temporary structure ...

Also, some of my compatriots may not be treating Trump’s annoyance with the gravity it warrants.

Peter McMahon, Kirkintilloch

Why doesn’t Donald just incorporate the windmills into his course, most of the courses I play have windmills and you have to get the ball into the doorway before the blades hit it away! He could also use them as an indicator for deciding whether to go out without gluing his thatch down!

(I’d post about all this, but there’s nothing much folks in the US can do about it, and most folks over here already know he’s a fraudulent buffoon.)

Shame, it might distract from him and Malkin knocking chunks off each other on Twitter.

While I could watch those two acidic twits barf bile at each other for days, it appears that they’ve each seen something shiny in the last couple of days.  Here’s what YAFB and I are discussing, for everyone else.

I’d post about all this, but there’s nothing much folks in the US can do about it…

FALSE!  We can point and laugh and hurl snarky invective.

To steal a line from a friend: “Spoiler alert! It ends in illiterate bickering.”
