Well, the transitioning phase won’t go as smoothly as I had hoped. My hosting pal went ahead and altered his ‘arrowsmash.com’ domain to point to his new host provider, thus I no longer have a working site. He couldn’t wait for me forever, so that’s fine – I don’t mind a little downtime. In the meantime, I’ve set up a free web hosting account with good ole Microsoft to temporarily host this page and had the NO-IP domain ‘nick.serveblog.net’ redirect to it. It’s the best I could do on short notice.

I STILL need to come up with a new domain name! HELP! Gimme suggestions! So long as I don’t have one, the site will remain offline. The ‘serveblog.net’ domain was a freely provided ready-to-use type and I didn’t put a lot thought into choosing it originally. I had set up your basic blog using wordpress so it was a good enough idea way back, but then I quickly switched to this portal software so it stopped being applicable.

Anyhow, what is the site now? What speaks to ME and to the work that I do/did here? The answers to those questions would help one arrive at a more proper name for this site. And so, what would your suggestion be?? Should “Plight of the Fan Translator” be incorporated into it somehow? DeuceBag suggested www.thecrankyhacker.com but eh, I wasn’t sold on the idea… THINK! FAST! I need something lasting… Understand the significance: I would have to update all the patch documentation, any edited credits images, etc. to reflect the new URL so it’s gotta be good. If you’re one of my 10,000 standard useless, warez, freeloaders, here’s a chance to make yourself useful… Just email me the suggestion with the yahoo address provided below if you can handle that.

Oh, and just in case you get generous all of a sudden (which, statistically speaking, has a ~98% chance of NOT happening going by the current crop of “fans” I’ve attracted over the past ~6 years of my hacking career. Donor-to-freeloader ratio is about 2 per 100; read another way, for every 98 freeloaders, there are 2 donors), here goes that evil anathema that is the paypal icon:

P.S.

I got that final Felghana patch waiting for you right here! OH YEAH!!! It’s all finished!!! Come and get it… Then after that, I got an Ys VI: The Ark of Napisthim PC patch waiting for you right here too, because yeah, you’ve all been such great fucking fans! I mean seriously, who could ask for any better fans than you all? Not me!! OH NO! Not me! You’re so goddamn fucking insanely generous you’ve spoiled me rotten to the core!!! I’m rich and it’s all thanks to you! Rich I say! Hell, I could retire right now if I wanted to! SO STOP SPOILING ME! SERIOUSLY! STOP IT! Anyway, yeah, after that, I got an Ys Origin patch for ya too! Bet your greedy little warez grabbing hands would especially love to get a hold of that one, huh? Well, how about it? Huh huh? See, I understand… I understand perfectly well the drive to fill those warez coffers up with all the goodies you can grab a hold of! That said, how about one for Xanadu Next while we’re at it as well? YEAH, WHY NOT? I WANNA BE JUST AS GENEROUS AS YOU WONDERFUL FANS HAVE BEEN TO ME ALL THESE WONDERFUL YEARS! Thus, Xanadu Next it is! Xanadu Next it is! All set! Yeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrgh!
