And now, a message from our Tech Dept.

As my 3.6 Loyal Readers will note, I have recently installed a Tip Jar on this website (see at right), and am beginning work on setting up an automated mailing list. For those of you who may wish to do similar tasks on your own WordPress installations, here is a simple training video that tells you nearly everything you need to know about how these tasks are done.

This technology was originally developed by Chrysler for use in the electronic diagnosis and denoberation of transmission misaccelerance, but has recently found a whole new range of uses in the emulation of dystactic fimularity on hexameric server configurations, such as that employed by WordPress. I hope you find the original description as informative and helpful as I did.


Tolstoy McStudge

Sarah Dimento has the honour to inform us that Tolstoy agrees with Smiggy McStudge about Wagner:

The actor with the horn opens his mouth as unnaturally as the gnome, and long continues in a chanting voice to shout some words, and in a similar chant Mime (that is the gnome’s name) answers something or other to him. The meaning of this conversation can only be discovered from the libretto; and it is that Siegfried was brought up by the gnome, and therefore, for some reason, hates him and always wishes to kill him. The gnome has forged a sword for Siegfried, but Siegfried is dissatisfied with it. From a ten-page conversation (by the libretto), lasting half an hour and conducted with the same strange openings of the mouth, and chantings, it appears that Siegfried’s mother gave birth to him in the wood, and that concerning his father all that is known is that he had a sword which was broken, the pieces of which are in Mime’s possession, and that Siegfried does not know fear and wishes to go out of the wood. Mime, however, does not want to let him go. During the conversation the music never omits, at the mention of father, sword, etc., to sound the motiv of these people and things.

It is not known at present whether Tolstoy was a McStudge by blood, by marriage, or by adoption, or whether he merely learnt his craft at the prestigious Studzhnik Institute in St. Petersburg.
