Another Milestone for Tacky Raccoons.

Thursday, 21 September 2017

Earlier today we passed the 2M mark and I almost missed it. Thanks, peeps and search engines. I feel like a hundred bucks.

Time to Pot or Get Off the Excrete [Updated]

Saturday, 16 September 2017

Folks–

Might have to go dark, but it’s only temporary.

My old XP mule (2005 Compaq Presario SR1750NX) is having sporadic seizures, messes with the files and programs, and otherwise shows signs of dementia. Bessie has no viruses, rootkits, worms or other detectable infestations according to MalwareBytes Premium and Kaspersky Anti-Rootkit, but she no longer wishes to reboot to an earlier date, even in safe mode. In the words of hospice providers, she’s “in transition.”

Bessie also no longer recobanizes Firefox. Her memory is fading, some of her RAM is gone for good, and I think her hard drive is giving out after so many rotations. Sometimes she grunts incoherently and speaks in tongues on a blue screen. After so many years of loyal service, I’m forced to put her out to pasture, and I’ll miss her.

But I have a backup that I’ve been avoiding using, mainly because of Windows 10. It’s a Dell XPS with a solid state drive, a lot of bytes and a big ‘ol honkin’ wad of RAMMAGE that should last me for a few years. That’s what I’m posting on now.

I haven’t named this new-and-improved, cutting-edge, state-of-the-art, wave-of-the-future, now-more-than-ever computer yet, so any suggestions are welcome.

Update: Successfully made the transition. A full system malware scan used to take hours, but now it takes under a minute. Now all I have to do is spank Windows 10 a bit, realign the monitor, and increase the font size to something legible. 6 pt sucks.

The backboard is clean because the game hasn’t started.

The Cheeto Chair – Results of eating 1 bag of Cheetos every day for years and wiping hand on seat. Yes, that is mold.

Image and caption found here. I don’t know whose chair that is and I don’t eat Cheetos, and if you’re at all squeamish about CheetoFilth, Stop Right Here.

Christmas Trees – Win, Place & Show

Click on any image to see it in its full glory. IMO these are FAILS or at least NICE TRYs, and any one of them that didn’t give little children nightmares might be considered a WIN.

We hit the WordPress Freebee Wall today. So what.

3074-kb

Yep, that’s 3 megs worth of free WordPress hosting storage in The Archives, and we hit the limit today. We knew this day was coming, but we weren’t sure which path to take:

A: Say “Adios Amoebas,” and snivel away quietly.

B: Open up another WordPress freebee account and link back to this one.

C: Bite the bag and sign up for a WP Premium Account with more storage.

Nobody quits after 9+ years of fun, so Option A was out. IMO Option B is kinda taking advantage of a free service, and it meant setting up and rebuilding/resurrecting a fan base. As for Option C, I’m cheap frugal. I don’t like buying something that I can’t eat, drink or squeeze, but then I remembered our PayPal Donation account and the decision was made. Yeah, I squeezed it. I bit the bag.

Tacky Raccoons is good for another year if advert income & donations keep up. Hope y’all enjoy yourselves here – a dime a day keeps the meerkats away (cutesy little standy-uppy weasel-lookin’ bastards).

Crappy Taxidermy Cat Fail

Spotted this machine here, and all I can say is WOW.

The following is the Feb. 29, 2016 Medal of Honor award ceremony for Chief Special Warfare Operator (SEAL) Edward C. Byers Jr. who won the award during actions he took in a hostage rescue in 2012. [Jump to 00:16:00 to hear his story.]

Scientists have discovered a way to extend the lives of lab mice by 40 percent. Somehow that’s darkly humorous to me.

This is a must read for all voters: Dr. Thomas Sowell.

Foxes are idiots.

The Star Wars paintings of 1920 Soviet Russia.

The Museum of Communism, Prague.

Happy Birthday, Ella Logan.
