Logins and bots oh my PDF Print E-mail

Haven't finished installing and setting up the new version of Joomla for my site (I'm slack... but hell what is the site called...)

Anyway... it's come to my attention that any time there is a "register" link suddenly hundreds of accounts get created with names like "zxsaersfkl" or "buyshoesnow". So here's the thing, I'm sure most of these accounts are created by bots, but on the off chance that there is a real human sitting there creating them - they will never be approved and allowed to post.

And if you're a real person who was hoping to register in order to, I dunno... maybe comment on a post or to post a review, then I'm sorry that isn't happening until Version 3 (the next version) of the site.

So to summarize: if you're a spammer - go away, if you're a real person hoping to post, sorry - posting coming soon.

Well that was quick... PDF Print E-mail

After finally getting the site up and running after a huge hiatus I've just discovered that the CMS (Joomla) I'm using is way out of date. So probably going to be another lack of posting for awhile as I get the new version installed and configured. Hopefully this time round it'll only be a week or two, not several years *cringe*.

Personally, I'm very happy with Joomla 1.5 and it's working just fine, but the new version (3.0) offers more features and a better upgrade path moving forwards. So rather than get a ton of content in here that I lose (or have to manually move) in 12 months time I think it's much better to move now and only have to deal with a few articles.

About Half-assed PDF Print E-mail
Written by Ken Beattie (Skrybe)

I originally started a website back in the 90s called "Skrybe's Tales of Terror"... somewhat cringeworthy I know. Over time that changed to become Half-assed.net, mainly because I didn't have the time to do things properly. Hence the "half-assed". Due to work, health, lack of spare time, moves between hosting companies (some of which supported different technology) the site has experienced long periods of downtime.

Now I'm restarting Half-assed with a focus primarily on reviews, movies, books, tech and so on. It'll also have articles that will hopefully be helpful to people - focusing on "how tos" for some of the troublesome tech I use and the workarounds I've found. You might also notice the Rants & Raves section, it contains well... rants about things that are annoying/frustrating. The first one is about the movie Prometheus.

So... yeah, Half-assed is basically another blog site... just not a very good one. Enjoy, or don't...

 

ps: The old horror stories (and new ones) from Skrybe's Tales of Terror will make a return sometime in the future.

Zombie Apocalypse 2012 PDF Print E-mail

This will be a quick review for one big reason, this movie is neither good nor bad enough to spend too much time on. It's an Asylum/Syfy zombie movie starring a bunch of mostly unknowns. There are only two people I recognise; the ever dependable Ving Rhames and Eddie Steeples (Darnell aka Crabman) from My Name is Earl.

Not much content up here at this point, but Half-assed is back. I'll be adding more reviews on a semi regular basis (hopefully weekly) and will try to reinstate some of the more interesting/popular reviews from the old Half-assed site. No guarantees on them making it back though.
