  • Hello everyone, and look forward to visiting people’s sites 🙂

    Little short story about my site. Back in 1996 to 2001 I owned a domain name which I hosted myself out of my old studio apartment. Back when domains were $75/year from Network Solutions. From 1996 to 1999 I was hosting it on a Slackware Linux box on 2 128k ISDN lines bonded. Anyhow things change, times change, job changes, and end of 2001 I had moved and let my domain slip and the rest is history.

    I had a blog on blogger for past 4 years, but I recently thought ‘I wonder if my old domain was available’ and to my surprise it was.

    So I thought I’d start anew instead of moving my old blog over. Installed WordPress on a co-located server I own. My short story is turning long so I’ll just say I am disabled and at home most the time, so my blog is more of an eclectic mix of posts, from cool links I find around the net, to some of my favorite music, the odd or strange news stories I may discuss, it’s sorta a catch all while I try to stick to 3 main areas, news type discussion, music, cool links.

    my website is:

    the domain back in 1996 was first thought up when I was in college and there was a formal function I had to go to and the suit I borrowed from a roommate was tad short on me, me being 6’3″. A friend said I looked like a “gorilla in a dude suit” so it sorta stuck with me so when I decided to purchase a domain I liked the idea of 🙂

    Anyhow would love to hear any advice, criticism, or whatever you may think.

    Thank you!

  • I went there and nothing comes up (using Chrome), after getting Google’s cached version of the site it looks like the theme didn’t install properly.

    Yep, I get an error page too.


    sorry, the isp my colocated server is at is swapping hard drives on the dns server so dns dropped on the domain. They had to pick the same day I posted this to let me know 🙁

    I’ll repost when this maintenance is finished.

    sorry again for problem
