end of days innit
Geezer gets an insane amount of stick for providing a service that most of of use daily and for free.
think it was the fourth day in a row from Theo.
the snapping is understandable
both pointing out something harming the state of your website in the last four days, FFS.
I'm not griping at you, I'm trying to point things out to you before some hyperbolic arsehole starts a thread on here moaning that gets 100 replies.
And, as I said in my reply today, it doesn't really matter that you're on DiS 1.5 days if you don't have a deputy who resolve things or a process for this. If you want us all to just bombard w00t Media whenever adverts are breaking the site, I'm sure that can be arranged.
when all Sean needs is a wife.
Literally: Maybe 2, 3 days' work per week, tops.
He can be kept on in a ceremonial role if he likes.
Will you also be able to ensure the £1500 a month server bill is taken care of tho? That's the problem.
as long as you let me manage your brewery too. Craft beer's a pretty big market these days.
plenty of times about potential revenue generation/ investment strategies. I can only conclude that you either think I'm a dimwit (and who could blamne you) or that you are too busy to think long term (dangerous) or you don't actually want change (which is fine- but don't drag your feet complaining about it.)
What happened to the 'donate to DiS' page- is that still going? You should bump it every so often. most people would be happy to throw a few quid at it every now and again.
I find some of the grief you get on here to be a bit tragic, especially considering the first thing these people do whenever DiS goes down for a bit is wet their nappies and have a tantrum. I think most of the teasing is meant fondly though. Ya big daft nugget)
and the Amazon associate link and (to a lesser extent) the tshirt shop should be a proper page of their own in the links at the bottom or something at least, instead of random threads that need bumping
They should be above the fold. Although the fact that over half the stuff visible when you load a page is the logo does mean there's not a lot of space to incorporate them properly.
Theo you big old perve.
it looks like I commit more time to DiS than Sean does.
I work for two other companies and manage Ed Harcourt, if you want to know.
it's a brewery I think
has never seemed so apt :(
And its nights
And its manual labour
Its deliciously working class
Is Ed playing Manchester any time soon?
that we are in the middle of organising a Manchester Brewdog bar takeover for January.
Didn't see the username at first. Genuinely thought this was in the realms of possibility.
he's on tour with Marianne Faithfull until the end of the year and then heading into the studio with Flood in January to finish his next album. Hopefully be back on the road in the spring.
do you know Flood?
(Flood went to my school)
I'm seeing him tonight, in fact. You aren't as old as Flood. Or ARE you?
and in the cubicle next to you its sean
doesn't seem right
and he's really stressed cause of something you said the day before :(((
and nobody in the office invites him out to drinks but they invite you on your first day :(((((
thats not fair.
his phone keeps buzzing and he looks at it and its always theo
maybe it isn't a lot but you should look into Amazon EC2
You presumably know the values you'd need to plug into this. Maybe you can find a cheaper way to host the site.
DiS is literally Sean's baby.
please donate to my PayPal? Thanks.
that he picks up when threads like this happen and just screams 'FUCK YOU' over and over again until he's just sobbing.
And all the while DiS, never switching off, never powering down, never sleeping, puts him into further debt.
And Royter laughs.
Perfect last line to pretty much anything.
it's not fair. He's perfectly within his rights to tell us all to GTF. I just hope he doesn't take it too personally and god forbid he ever listens to anything royter aims at him.
this is like, er... the flea-circus guy being hurt by the fleas complaining, or something
whenever he responds on threads like these there is a kind of kneejerk defensiveness from him, which suggests to me that he's (rightly) a bit fucking pissed off, and sometimes people are hurtful so I wouldn't be surprised if occasionally it stung a bit too.
at this dickhead thinking a flea circus is an actual circus with fleas
hahahahaha what an idiot
Serious question - if i take on the £1,500 monthly costs of running DiS does that put me in the big seat?
But he keeps the advert revenue.
shelling out £18k of my salary over a year in order to demote Parsefone as an admin.
It's a tough one.
You are parsefone, yeah?
so we asset-strip it and flog bits to hedge funds.
can we stop the screen freaking the fuck out every time a new page loads? and transparent advert glitches too.
