Ten Years Here

| March 8, 2013

Saturday marks ten years of my blogging here. Since beginning on March 9, 2003 under the moniker “TacJammer,” I’ve put up a few thousand posts, and had a bit over a quarter of a million views. Some people get that kind of traffic in a week. But I never got into this with the aim […]

Technical issues

| January 25, 2013

I’m having some technical problems with the back end of the website, having to do with a recent upgrade that was pushed out resulting in memory allocation failures on the server… Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 41943040 bytes exhausted The result is that if the plugin in question is active, I can’t access the […]

Got nuthin’.

| October 19, 2012

Despite all the fodder — debates, polls, the Alfred E. Neumann Smith dinner — I’ve been too busy to do even a minimal post. OK, except for this one. Maybe inspiration will strike. Odds are, if it does, I’ll be stuck on a conference call.

Poll Positions

| July 19, 2012

As a long-time* denizen of the corner of the internet known as “conservative bloggery,” I’m honored to be included in Right Wing News’ Conservative Bloggers Select The Most Popular And Unpopular People On The Right. I’m not going to say that my opinion is particularly suasive… but the poll results appear to have followed my […]

Who is Brett Kimberlin, and why does he matter?

| May 25, 2012

Sunshine, as they say, is the best disinfectant. It’s therefore long past time that more light was shed on the story of Brett Kimberlin, his unsavory associates, and his high-roller sources of funding. Thus today’s blog effort: Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin. I could say a lot about who Brett Kimberlin is and what he […]

Note to self: WordPress Tag Clouds

| February 8, 2012

To change the characteristics of the tag cloud displayed on public pages or on Admin pages, the files to edit are: wp-includes/category-template.php in function wp_tag_cloud wp-admin/includes/ajax-actions.php in function wp_ajax_get_tagcloud() [I need this reminder because WP version updates usually break my customization, and I really don’t want to spend the time re-learning where these particular variables […]

Ah, now I remember….

| February 4, 2012

You might recall that I had a brilliant insight last week that was, sadly, lost to me due to the need for sleep. Now I remember what it was, prompted in part by something Tina Korbe wrote at Hot Air yesterday. It’s related, if a bit tangentially. And it’s not something I can bang out […]

The Perils of Fatigue

| January 27, 2012

This morning, I had a brilliant insight into the GOP primary race. It was clear, concise, and (dare I say it?) profound in its perspicacity. And then I went to bed, thinking I’d write on it when I got up. When I woke up, it was gone. I cannot for the life of me remember […]

A plan I can agree with most heartily.

| August 1, 2011

Blogger and journalist extraordinaire Robert Stacy McCain (whose last name cannot be held against him — he had it long before a certain mavericky senator thought of entering politics) has absolutely the best idea for driving blog traffic I’ve ever heard: video of hot chicks. Indeed, though I have no such videos myself, one of […]
