Hello there. It’s me – the Scottish Jerry Lewis again. I wish I was the Scottish Warren Buffet. Or even the Scottish Andrew Carnegie. But no. At best I’m the Scottish Jerry Lewis. At worst, I’m the Scottish Me. Anyway – that idiotic preamble aside – I’m here to leer through your computer televisions to remind you that this thing you’re reading right now and all the links surrounding it using special hyperwords is kept vaguely accessible on a server that is hosted by a nice company with a bad habit of wanting money for their “service”.

Yes HELLO THERE. How are you? If you’ve managed to get out of bed on a regular basis over the past two weeks without weeping at the wasteland your life has become, then congratulations – you’re doing better than me. Not only have I been mostly unable to write or do anything constructive (like answering the 94 emails in the Inbox), I’ve also missed the quarterly payment for hosting this thing we call Wordsmoker. Oops.
Hello Everyone Except That Moaner Hydroceph
As you’re no doubt very aware of – no-one’s been sent a lolcat as way of thanks for their donation. This is because I’ve been too busy picking out the exact type of yacht I really want, thanks to my now huge PayPal account (who knew that www.luxyachts.com took PayPal? I know! Yay!) Anyway – I’ve paid the hosting company to upgrade us, and that should happen over the next day or so. And I promise to get the lolcats out this week – as soon as the Russian hookers leave, I’ll get right onto it.
You may have noticed a subtle message popping up when you visit Wordsmoker on occasion. Something about processor or RAM usage being under stress, with that being the ridiculous reason you can’t read the super-brilliance of our contributors, or post your own wonderful commentary like you want to.
Well, we don’t run a blame culture at Wordsmoker, but really – it’s all your fault.
This AP item, I think, proves either the cognitive dissonance or clever sense of humor of the outgoing administration.
To wit, President Bush today awarded over 20 people with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. One of those people was Charles “Chuck” Colson of Watergate fame, who started an organization “which conducts outreach to prisoners, former convicts, crime victims and their families.”
