Get yer asisaid shares!

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 6:18 PM

Well, I haven't been messing with BlogShares much lately, but I decided to today. I accidentally pushed this blog way over the edge and crashed it to 1/4 its old BlogShares value. It has almost regained all of its value however from me buying a large number of newly issued shares (and through some other buying I've almost gotten back to my old $4.3 million in BlogShares worth).

At any rate, there are presently 700 newly issued shares available at $23.38 a piece. If you'd like a few shares, why not jump over here right now? This is an ideal time to pick up new asisaid.com shares if you lost yours when Just James Productions quite maliciously did a hostile takeover last month.

Disclaimer: For anyone who isn't familiar with BlogShares, this is a fantasy stockmarket. I'm not really worth 4.3 mil., and the money you use to by asisaid.com shares is fictional money. Just thought I'd mention that in case you'd never heard of BlogShares before.

New Day, New Blogs

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 3:14 PM

Well, I seem to be on a blog adding mode at the moment. I've added two new blogs that I think should make nice additions to the blogroll.

  • David's Journal - David McGlone is a friend of mine I met, hmm, I can't remember any more! Anyway, I met him a long time ago on the SuSE-Linux-E mailing list, and he has since been on other mailing lists I'm on, most notably FaithTree.com/OfB.biz's own ChristianSource and OfB-Talk mailing lists. He's new to the blogosphere, so give him a hearty welcome!
  • DogfightAtBankstown - This looks like an interesting blog from down under with a wide array of stuff. “Saint in a Straitjacket,” the writer, stopped by and commented here a week or two ago and I've been reading the blog since then. I like it!

Have a nice Saturday afternoon!

Blog Roll'n

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 12:43 AM

Well, I've added a few good links to the ol' BlogRoll (see right) over the past few weeks. I just added Elevation, a new blog (I just got word about it!) that should prove very interesting, I think. Gavenagain is a very nice guy I know and I'm really looking forward to hearing what he has to say here.

I've also finally added a link to Darren Rowse's Living Room, a blog I've been following for some time, but hadn't linked to. It's a great blog with lots of thought provoking content. Darren recently did a cool series on “Underblogs,” those of us who have blogs that aren't quite as well known.

Finally, I've added Discoshaman's Le Sabot Post-Moderne. It's somewhat of a political/culturally focused blog. I really like it so far.

The Case of the Lost Comments

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:49 PM

I think I figured out what might have been causing some comments to get lost after posting. If you did post and your comment didn't stay online, please try again. I think everything should be working now. :-) Thanks!

New Graphic.

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 12:41 AM

First graphical logo for the site (circa Summer 2001):

Pre-asisaid.com logo (circa April 2002):

Old logo (circa March 2003):

New logo (circa right now!):

So, which one's best? Yeah, I know, don't quit my day job. ;-)

Now You Can Get Twice the Tim!

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 2:19 AM

Kevin, perhaps in a lapse of judgment, has invited me to write for The Sakamuyo Network. TSN has been Kevin's blog for over a year now, and more recently he has added two other authors. Now with me, there are a total of four bloggers writing on Sakamuyo providing all kinds of bloggy goodness.

So if Asisaid.com hasn't succeeded in driving you crazy already, now you can get more of the Asisaid guy himself at Sakamuyo (Kevin's always insightful posts will continue to be there as well).

We apologize for the delay, your blog is important to us...

We'll I hate to be late again, but things just haven't been on my side the last two days for blogging. I had hoped to get the Ozark review up last night but some small stomach bug got me and laying down felt much better than blogging. Today I had some urgent work to do and a long committee meeting (which had some issues I'm still grumbling about) at Church, so I guess my post will have to wait until tomorrow. See ya then.

In the mean time, I should add that I saw a woodchuck the other day coming home from some errands. This is rather unusual as I was on a fairly busy highway. He was just sitting on the side of the road, watching the traffic. Perhaps he was pondering one of life's deepest questions: “How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood.”

What a day

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 9:43 PM
With a small schedule today, I slept late this morning. Big mistake. My schedule grew and today ended up being crazy. First, a fire, or something like that, took down all sites my company sells hosting services to (through our hosting provider). That was at around 10:00 A.M. and didn't clear up until after six this evening. For those who are curious, here is the explanation I sent to my clients:
At approximately 10:00 A.M. Central Time this morning, Network Access
Corporation's (NAC) Site B datacenter in New Jersey, where Universal
Networks' name servers are located, had its fire suppression system activated
after what appears to have been the explosion of a [capacitor for a] uninterpretable power
supply located in the building. This resulted in the loss of power and
consequently the loss of access to Universal Networks' internet properties.

At 11:00 A.M. Central Time the fire department allowed NAC personnel back
into Site B, however due to various circumstances, the section of the
datacenter housing Universal Networks' nameservers, and those of our hosting
affiliate, were left without power until after 6:00 P.M. Central Time.

Everything now appears operational again.

Thank-you for your understanding.


Then, to make things more interesting, the Linksys ethernet router I installed for my church was on the brink today (I think I have “collisions” going on with DHCP assignment). Between the two events I had to squeeze in some actual work.

And speaking of work, the most interesting piece of it was writing on the on going SCO-IBM conflict. That conflict now envelopes Novell and Linus Torvalds too. I was going crazy today not being able to put anything about it on OfB.biz (not to mention going crazy because no one could access the article I put on OfB.biz last night).

At any rate, hopefully things will calm down now. I haven't forgotten about finishing my trip summary (complete with traveling tips for those going to the Ozarks), but I didn't want to rush putting together the second entry. It'll be on soon, however.

More Blogroll, More Blogshares

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 5:45 PM

Well, I conducted a reverse stock split this morning in hopes of increasing my share price so that I could issue some more shares. That worked, and there's 940 shares available for the taking if you so desire. The only bad news is issuing more shares caused my P/E to rise precipitously, and I lost $2,000 in worth in my personal portfolio as the price dropped. It seems a bit odd that buying sixty shares should cause such a large drop, but oh well. It should be stable now though, as the P/E is close to perfect and at a much better price than it would have been a day or two ago… remember buy when it's low (but, because you like asisaid, don't sell high)! ;-)

In other news, I have made some Blogroll additions. First, I've added “Sisters' Weblog: It Bloggles the Mind,” which I've been following for a little while now. Also, just this morning while following my Blogshares, I noticed Josiah Richie's blog was linking to me, and I've returned the link. I know Josiah from ChristianSource Free Software and Linux Users Group and I knew he had a blog, but I was thinking it was mostly discussion of Gentoo news. Anyway, it is now blogrolled as well.

Perpetually Behind

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 12:00 AM

Well, I've been so far behind I haven't had the time to post anything meaningful here for a little while. I'll shape up… I promise!

Saddam Hussein's son, Uday, comes home from shopping with everything in a
cardboard box.

Saddam says: “Why have you brought the shopping home in a cardboard box,
Uday ?” To which his son replies: “Because there's no Baghdad.”

Okay, now, if you're looking for something to do, go visit Pressed's site and read his interesting piece on Pluralism. This is a really important topic and one that faces every Christian today. I can't even begin to remember how many times people have used the arguments that Pressed discusses to argue against absolute truth — and as Pressed explains, these arguments fall apart by themselves.
