DreamHost will be upgrading our MySQL server this afternoon sometime between 1600 and 1900 (4 p.m – 7 p.m.) Pacific. You might notice some small interruptions of the site availability. Not to worry. has not been hacked nor have I had to blow up the site.

Good afternoon, my dear Glibs. And the rest of you, too.


For those of you still on Team Google. SMDH.

Those storms in the lower midsection of the country? “The Arkansas River, which was just above 37 feet, or 9 feet above flood stage, at Muskogee, Oklahoma, was expected to eventually reach 43.5 feet. Officials encouraged residents in several communities along the river to leave their homes.” Still not good and might get worse.

I hate Netflix more and more. 


I’m sure it comes as no surprise to anyone here that J.D. Tuccille is OK in my book. “If my wife and I and Anthony himself have properly done our jobs, he’ll be equipped to take care of himself and to offer aid to others. And he’ll be thoroughly immunized against the promises, lies, and temptations of demagogues.”

And on that encouraging note, I’ll leave you with some music. But never fear, I’ll be back with a new poll tonight, if all goes well with the database server upgrade!
