A new look

pixelbomb blog

I was getting a little tired of the look of the old design, so I finally decided sit down and do something about it. Presenting the all new pixelbomb … live and in living color. There are still a few minor design issues I have to deal with, but those aside, this is the new layout. Hope you enjoy…

p.s. due to spamming issues I have closed all the comments; but not to worry … taking the place of the comments will be a new forum. Look for it soon!

Katharine McPhee aftermath

Katharine McPhee cleavage purple dress

My apologies to everyone out there (and I know there was a countless many) who received the Service Temporarily Unavailable message; as I mentioned yesterday, Katharine McPhee brought my server to its knees. But, it would appear as though the dust has finally settled.

So … welcome to all my new readers, I hope you stick around! And to all my loyal readers, thanks for being patient through the McPhee-ver epidemic!

Katharine McPhee — Idol or bust!

Katharine McPhee cleavage in the white jacket

Second place Idol contestant Katharine McPhee managed to break my blog and bring it to a screeching halt today when Yahoo! featured a link to her now famous yellow dress in their buzz log. It would seem, however, that Katharine’s great taste in clothing and desire to promote her curves cleavage has continued well beyond that little yellow dress. Win or lose, Katharine made sure her wardobe choices for the Idol finale would leave a lasting impression.

So here they are — Katharine McPhee’s cleavage in (possibly everyone’s new favorite) the black dress, the white jacket, and the purple dress … after the jump.

Idol or bust!

Pardon the dust

Under

Yeah, I hate the Under Construction thing as much as the next person, but it’s unfortunately warrented this time. I was hoping the migration from the current image/content management system to the new system would be transparent and seemless, but (as are some things in life), it didn’t go quite as smoothly as I hoped.

For most part you shouldn’t notice a difference — but there are some instances where the images and formatting are rather, well, screwed. I’ll be working to correct this as quickly as possible, but in the meantime, please bear with me. Thanks!

Update: After a lot of tinkering, it would appear as though we’re back! Everything seems to check out ok, but please let me know if you encounter any anomalies…

Missing images

missing

Due to technical issues I had to move both the blog and the gallery. The transition seems to have gone smoothly and everything looks to be up and running again (I hope!). One issue I did notice, however, is that due to the cache some images may appear missing; reloading the page should resolve the problem. Please let me know if you encounter any other problems. Thanks for bearing with us as the dust clears!

Website Copier

Website Copier

Why in the world would someone want to download an entire website, especially if it wasn’t their website? I was checking my logs and noticed an abnormally large amount of traffic coming from 68.107.200.135 with an HTTP_USER_AGENT of “Mozilla/4.5 (compatible; HTTrack 3.0x; Windows 98)”. It looked kind of suspicious so I did a little digging. Apparently HTTrack (httrack.com) is an offline browser utility which allows someone to download an entire site — recursively. That person can then effectively mirror the site and keep their copy up-to-date.

Why?

Not only does it generate a tremendous amount of traffic, but there’s really no practical reason for doing something like that other than to swipe content (if there are better reasons, please let me know!).

Desperate Blog is at least one blog that I know of that has been completely mirrored on an alternate site. Can’t we all just get along?

Slightly off-topic: I don’t know why I thought of it, but here are some screen captures from that humorous Double A Paper ad from awhile back.
