Well, here we are back where I started from



I started this blog back in 2008 and ran it here for 5 years before going to Wordpress for reasons I can't recall. It probably doesn't matter though - they've had 7 years to fix whatever it was that pissed me off.

I really had no intentions of posting here anymore but thanks to GoDaddy, I don't have much of a choice for now. You folks have been good to me and I really enjoy interacting with you - I was afraid that if I didn't do something I was going to lose all that, so I came back to blogspot.

I've been looking for a new hosting service and I think I've found one but I've got to get GoDaddy to try to resurrect my blog first so that the new host can migrate it over, otherwise I'll lose everything I've written as far as my personal stories. I put a lot of work into those. But if they can't bring it back, I'll start from scratch and build a better blog. Fuck 'em.
When that does happen though, we'll go back to knuckledraggin.com but in the meantime, we're here. Think of it as a motel room while your home is being renovated. We may be here a week or we may be here a month, who knows?

In the meantime, there's going to be some changes here - not just sprucing the site up but also in the posting. I'm able to pre-schedule posts here so they'll start at midnight (my time) and one every hour or so until you get your usual 15 or 20.
Posting here is a little different than on a Wordpress platform so it's going to take me some time to get used to. For one thing I haven't figured out yet how to post 3 gifs, insert a 'More-below-the-fold' line, then add seven more. Maybe one of y'all can help me out.

As far as a blogroll goes, I pretty much dumped them all because 90% of them were dead links. If you run a blog or have one that you read on a regular basis, shoot me an email at k59lane@yahoo.com with the link and I'll add it in soon enough.

Again, I apologize for that other site fucking up but damn, there just wasn't a lot I could do about it. GoDaddy was saying it was a wordpress issue and Wordpress was saying it was a hosting issue. It did turn out that GoDaddy did fuck it up when they were migrating it back to Linux but that's all water under the bridge now. Like I said, I'll be looking for a new host.

And while I'm thinking about it I want to thank those bloggers who posted this URL on their sites and sent our mutual readers here. Thank you, Gentlemen. I appreciate you for that. Hopefully I won't have to do the same for you, but if there's anything I can do for y'all, just holler.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding.

  2. Hi Mr. Lane.

    Sorry for all your troubles.

    FYI, I don't think 95% of the links to other blogs are dead and I would hate to see them go since I only bookmark your site and when caught up, I open several of the others you list.

    Regards,
    JamesD

  3. I'm inferring, from what you wrote here and in the post above, that Wordpress and/or GoDaddy has no facility for the client to do their own backups? Can that be in this the age of modern office technology or would it require an exorbitantly large hard drive?

  5. Ken, I'm really enjoying the old site! It seems to run better for me and I hadn't
    known about it back then so I'm having a great time going through all the old stuff! Ed
    P.S. the milfy mondays were great!

  10. Hang in there man. I have 2 Blogger back up sites in case Wordpress shits the bed.
    It was their censorship that caused me to migrate to Wordpress in the first place and then WP turned out to be a bunch of simpering pussies too when they started deleting entire blogs for content they didn't like.
    We are surrounded by the perpetually butt hurt.
    Fuckers have absolutely no sense of humor.
    At least I am finally getting follow up comments here.

  11. I just posted it up on my blog. I was a sleep circus'd wreck yesterday and it went in one eyeprint and out the other. I think most of my traffic from you comes in through your sidebar link, but for anyone who may have bookmarked me, they now can get back to you.

  12. Hang in there, Ken.
    You can rest assured that we aren't going anywhere. I've been here since the beginning - or damn close to it. I saw the first link for this site on Theo Spark : Wirecutter gases a hippie. Been a daily read ever since.

  13. Sitting here in Tempe, AZ your blog is a lifesaver. I used to check in from time to time when I had spare time (not as often I would've liked) and now that all I have is spare time your page has become my morning read with my first cup of coffee. Thank you very much for the time and effort you take to keep us entertained and informed.

  15. Can't Wordpress host it all? I guess I'm not as savvy as I thought I was. GoDaddy has things so screwed up I'm only looking at a blank screen and address bar.

    I'll post this address over at Woodsterman for you.

  16. So glad to see you back. I really missed reading your posts.

  17. Damn man, I'm glad I found the link to the new site.
    I restarted blogging and would be honored if you'd include a link on your site.
    It's just something I'm having fun with. ;)

  18. Linked.
    It's been hard getting the word out to everybody about this site, trust me.

  19. Thank you for info you sent to a friend. Glad to see you online at least. Sorry about GoDaddy. I am so confused on what they had happen. These websites are supposed to be backup in the Server. Tells me a lot about their business practice.
