Stuff that’s happening around here.
after my most recent rex havoc story arc and 50th chapter garnered exactly 2 readers, i’ve decided that the “return” of rex havoc shall become the “retirement” of the illustrious hero. i’ve put a lot of work into the story, and to receive such a lacklustre response is more than disheartening.
i was writing space flight 704 not because i wanted to, but because it was the sort of story i thought other people might like to read. that’s clearly not the case. from this moment, i refuse to write what is popular and choose to concentrate on what will make me happy.
i’m going to write a story about a were-bear and a faerie princess. specifically, an erotic fiction about the love between a were-bear and his faerie princess dom. i’ve been plotting this out in my head for months, and i’ve really gotten into their relationship and i think it will make me much happier than rex havoc ever could. the only thing holding me back from putting pen to paper was the fear of what others might think.
but i’m not afraid any more! i’m no longer ashamed to admit that i want to read and write stories about bear-men and faeries having relations.
those of you who follow the rex havoc facebook and google+ pages might want to unsubscribe before i change the names. you probably don’t want to be seen ‘liking’ bear/faerie erotica.
thank you all for your understanding.
Hi there everyone! If you haven’t already noticed, The Geekorium has moved domains. It used to be the.geekorium.com, but we’ve moved to the.geekorium.com.au — it’s a small change but important, and I’ll be posting more about why I think so in future.
So if you see anything funky, let me know so I can fix it.
In other news, I have more Rex coming, I’m just a bit too busy to get it written.
It was six years ago on a Sleepless Night that I wrote my first blog post on what was then (maybe) not even my own domain. I didn’t set up nunnone.com with Google Mail for about a year after that night so I might have used some hosted blogging environment, but I can remember the night, if not the software. I thought it might be therapeutic, and it did let me get a lot off my chest in those early days.
I spun off a “godblog” for religious posts that documented my dawning atheism, then later absorbed them back in. Since then I’ve done the same for a number of ventures: posts on education and more recently Google Wave. But I keep coming back here, where I can hone my CSS skills and learn about new products and technology as they come out.
The site has undergone some name changes. Once “Josh Nunn’s Wee Blog” (weeblog, weblog geddit? What in space was I thinking?) then simply nunnone.com, now The Geekorium with its own domain, but the site has been the same site with all the same content it originally had (I’m very proud of that fact). Occasionally I clean up: there was a phase of importing crap from all over that I’ve since deleted, and Disqus butchered my comments database at least 3 times leaving some posts with up to six duplicates of each comment. But the essence of the site lives on, eclectic, haphazard and unfocussed1.
Recently I’ve found a direction I enjoy — writing the adventures of Rex Havoc the space adventurer. Some stalwart friends have followed my meandering to this point and I hope are enjoying the more structured posts. I’ll still occasionally post non-sequitur posts like this though, just to keep you on your toes. Hi guys!!
So here’s to The Geekorium! Six up and down years, but six years I’ve been happy to call this my own slice of the web. Welcome! Stay a while! Have a drink2!!
A few weeks ago I posted on G+ that I’d enabled IPv6 on my home network through Internode’s experimental support. The couple of responses I got were variations of “why?” which is understandable, as it’s kinda like turning on a second version of the internet where there’s Google and a tumble-weed.
But now, thanks to the power of CloudFlare, The Geekorium is here now too!
Eventually I hope to set up IPv6 “correctly” through my host, but they’re waiting for CPanel to support it. I’m sure that will happen soon. In the meantime, through the magic of pixies and fairies, I’m doing it now!
So if you’re on IPv6, come by! We’re open 24/7.
Tonight is my five year anniversary of this Blog. It started out as Josh Nunn’s Wee Blog on nunnone.com, and tonight — in honour of my achievement and due to my name-change earlier this year, I’ve migrated to this new domain1!
The Geekorium is now officially at http://the.geekorium.com.au
I’ve had a kid, I’ve started a new job, and bought a house.
I wonder where I’ll be in another five. Hope you stick around!
This site was always just a place to practice my website building skills and publish something to attach to my name if anyone came looking for me. As I didn’t have a burning need driving me to write (other than my first post), I’ve struggled sometimes to find anything to write about.
That probably won’t change — I’m not a writer deep in my soul — but I’m hoping that as I begin my TAFE course I might find stuff to post more frequently. I’m going to study programming (beginning with JAVA), and I’m expecting to write about some of the things I’m learning. So let this be a warning to you if you visit here regularly (yes my three loyal readers, I’m talking to you), I may be posting programming stuff, including code bits, and expanding on what I’m learning as I go, so if you don’t get programming, or are a super-coder you may want to skim over my posts (or even better, correct me when I’m wrong).
Just a heads up.
It’s getting silly really. I spend so much time updating this blog, without actually publishing anything. This is another test to test my new shortening service using Yourls. It should send a tweet out with my own url.
I’m working on a new theme though, so that’s something.
I’m writing this, my 100th post, from my iPhone. It’s making me dizzy, as the screen jumps with every key press. I may not do this again till there is a native iphone app to do it with.
Congratulations to me anyway.
Thank you Beau — your subscription brings me to 16 subscribers in Feedburner!
And if that was you that actually clicked on one of my feed items, you’ve given me a feedburner “reach” of one! Hooray! I’m popular! I can use exclamation marks! See?!
On another more serious note, Hittail.com suggests that I should be writing about “bible comic strips” and “allinurl blog”…
I suspect that Hittail might be getting confused.
