I wish bluealien were more lively.

Several months ago I started a poll about how often people look at and the results are approximately in line with what I expected (though I'm surprised that there are 4 votes for every hour and suspect it's the same user voting on four machines).

The time for talk is over. The time for action is now.

The lines have been drawn and it is time to pick a side in Vicarious Visions's Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 published by Activision.  A new video is now available see below.

Corrected: Windows Live Writer Server 1 Error

After some digging I discovered permissions were not set for utilizing the Drupal blogapi_module under:
Home > Administer > User management > Access control (see image below). 


I also manually applied the patch outlined here but it did not work.  I am leaving in unless it becomes a problem.

However I discovered one can no longer just insert the image into WLW as before.  Now you must configure FTP upload.  I used public_html/files with the URL as my dumping ground.  Though I may have had that setup before and forgot about it being needed.

9'' Nails

Great news now that Trent and gang are RIAA free I was finally able to purchase their latest album new.  What makes it even better I can do it directly from the guys as they are offering it up from their website store for bargain prices.  Check out the Google News Articles concerning their latest album Ghosts I - IV.  I opted for the $10.00 + s/h of 2CD set.  The next level looked tempting but I don't have a blu-ray yet but that could change with the MGS4 PS3 bundle.
