american on purposeThe server that hosts this site was located in Hong Kong, which I had long forgotten about until last night, when the hosting company helpfully suggested I migrate to a server in Boston. So now rubbercat.net is finally a U.S. citizen! dance

I wonder if I can book a trip to visit my website...

New York Times:

It was the first time Disney marketed characters separately from a film's release, let alone lumped together those from different stories. To ensure the sanctity of what Mooney called their individual "mythologies," the princesses never make eye contact when they're grouped: each stares off in a slightly different direction as if unaware of the others' presence.

Rubber Cat Productions was named after this cat puppet thing made out of rubber I got when I was nine that is now lost to the ages. This is a picture I found on The Internet of what I'm pretty sure is the exact same model [?]:

I know what you're thinking: multiple posts on the same day??? Such is the power of Movable Type, my friend.

movable typeWhoa hey I'm done moving from Blogger to Movable Type! As you can see, everything looks completely different now but I promise that in time you will get used to it. I feel pretty good about having more control over this thing and no longer having to give my FTP information to Skynet. Welcome to the Brave New Era of rubbercat.net!!!!

Now I get to do this all over again for my simpsons news thing sweatdrop

time toasterDid everyone in the tech industry just completely give up in 2008? Nobody's bothering to make the next Twitter, they're too busy making applications that allow people to twitter from places that aren't twitter.com. Google and Yahoo! are insistent on awkwardly trying to turn their sites into social networks. The newest Apple device is a big version of their previous device. It's 2010, shouldn't all the crazy new shit should be coming out this year?

movable type migration status

this attraction is being refurbished for your enjoyment

Nothing makes me feel quite as inept as trying to install a new blog engine and deal with mysql databases and shit. Things are moving smoothly now, I guess. The important stuff is configured and things look pretty snazzy (which is to say, it looks identical). Now all I have to do is solve a bunch of mysteries such as "Why is there a damn line under this picture?" and "Why aren't these link anchors working correctly?" Not sure if I should import all the previous posts from Blogger (if I can figure out how the hell this thing works).

from: Blogger Support
subject: Important: Changes to Blogger FTP Service

Dear FTP user:

You are receiving this e-mail because one or more of your blogs at Blogger.com are set up to publish via FTP. We recently announced a planned shut-down of FTP support on Blogger Buzz (the official Blogger blog), and wanted to make sure you saw the announcement. We will be following up with more information via e-mail in the weeks ahead blah blah blah blah

I have to switch to movable type or whatever
