Well Archives Department finally got all of the archives loaded back in to the new databases. Hopefully they’ve learned their lesson and will quit fooling around with things and learn to just leave well enough alone.

We’ll see…..but I’m not holding my breath.

There’s still some tweakagement needed to be done, but that can be tackled piecemeal at a pace that I can oversee with BOTH of my critical eyes.


As we rejoin our show, already in progress… 12 Jun 2009 @ 08:58

As the cameras fade in from black, we find ourselves on the Comm section of the local stardock. The lone figure seen is one Wizard Merlin, relegated to the graveyard shift of Comm Station duty…..remember, the rest of the crew is either dead or still on medical leave trying to mend from the recent devastation.

We can see where Merlin’s eyelids are very heavy, obviously he’s been hitting the Romulan Ale again…and possibly the late hour as well…….

Just as his chin hits the desk the comm speaker SCREAMS to life. The Wizard flings awake so violently he flips the chair he’s sitting in backwards and nearly passes out from the concussion of hitting his head on the floor of the station. The voice we can hear emanating from the now nearly non-functional speaker is that of Supreme General Rayegun.

Let’s join the conversion……

[RAYEGUN]: Damnit, who the hell is manning Comms!!! Answer me you sleaze ball or you’ll be scooping shit at the Democratic Convention from now till eternity!

[MERLIN]: Ummm, ummm….{shakes his head to try and clear his addled brain} Merlin here General. Ummm, uhhhh….Can I assist you with something?

[RAYEGUN]: MERLIN!! What the hell are YOU doing on Comms? And have you been hitting the Romulan Ale AGAIN????

[MERLIN]: Ummm, ummm….uhhhh, No sir. {prays that is the correct answer}
And after the little war as well as the fall of the Pegasus it’s been a bit scarce to find qualified comm techs to watch the subspace channels and all.

[RAYEGUN]: Fine. {Merlin wipes his sweat-ridden brow} Where’s Darth? He needs to be made aware that I’ve finally returned from my extended TDY in the Gamma Quadrant.

[MERLIN]: Ummm, he’s unavailable at this time General, sir.

[RAYEGUN]:WHATTTT!!!!!! {the comm speaker nearly explodes from the console}
Well be sure he gets the message as soon as he is AVAILABLE!! I’ll be in my office if anything comes in.

[MERLIN]: Ummm, {hic} yessir.

[RAYEGUN]: MERLINNNNNNNNN!!!!!! {cameras and sound fades to black}

Yes folks, I’m back from a rather unplanned extended absence. There’s been quite a bit going on down here at the Southern HQ. First of which is that much like Darth, the General’s residence is in the process of changing locations. This is due to the impending nuptials next month (kinda also the reason for my disappearance). I won’t go into too many details here, but the General is a very happy camper again. The big day is July 25, 2009. The new Generalette-to-be is like-minded and would happily laugh at any of the “52 percenters” and their so-called “change”. She is also an elementary school teacher of almost 20 years who absolutely hates what the federal guvmint has done to ruin the education system.

After a week-long honeymoon in Hawaii, I will be posting much more frequently. For now, be on the lookout for some stuff that has been annoying the crap out of me. I’m sure you can guess what it concerns.

Keep the comm channels open.

Southern Command status update 19 Sep 2008 @ 21:16

Most of you I’m sure have seen either pictures or video coverage of the devastation that occurred down here due to Hurricane Ike.

Well check out these pictures of the Texas Coast and elsewhere. Sobering in the least, trust me on this one! Yes, we realize it’s a snooty “Bawstun” newspaper website but it’s the pictures we were most impressed with.

Take note, image #11 is quite telling. Small tidbit of information about the house that is pictured. It was rebuilt after Hurricane Rita mowed through the neighborhood back in 2005. The reason it is still standing today is the fact that when it was rebuilt, it was specifically designed and constructed to withstand the wind and water effects of a Category 5 hurricane. I do believe more people will be looking into this once the reconstruction begins in earnest. I’m betting the architect is going to be a very busy person(s) for the next couple of years. Let alone the builder and contractors who put that gem together.

For now though, all is well here at the Southern Command. No buildings were damaged, all aircraft are present and accounted for and ready for combat sorties. Other than the loss of electricity (which was restored on this past Wednesday) and a very minor loss of foodstuffs we’re good to go.

And just as a shot across the libtards bow, Joey-boy Biden is totally farked in the head if he seriously thinks that “PATRIOTISM” should include paying more in taxes. Hey Joey-boy, you wanna do something REAL to get the economy back on the right track? How about you and all of your buddy donkheads vote to change your “retirement package” to where you’re all on the same one us little people have!!!! Or how about ya’ll start PAYING for the gas those limos and Suburbans guzzle down. Or pay for the jet fuel those G-V Gulfstreams ya’ll use to commit adultery or to go on those infamous “junkets”!!!

Let me guess, that would be too damn much for your audacity to stomach. Well keep it up, us little people will do our part to ensure that one day soon audacity is the only farking thing you’re gonna have to eat or drink!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, and we’ll be sure to have Sarah-Cuda serve it up to ya….and then shove it down your damn throats!!!!!

…and now a word from the Southern Command HQ 6 Aug 2008 @ 21:32

So Edouard crossed over to land just after 0700 yesterday, dumped about 1.5″ of wet stuff on the Command complex. And then basically wimped out throughout the rest of the day.

As weather events go, it was about as useful as Shrieker of the House Piglosi actually calling for a vote on the continental oil drilling bill before leaving for the August break. For those of you in Rio Linda, that means it was a non-event.

Most everything has dried out by today, so everything at Southern Command is back to normal ops.

Capt. Carter (Base Weapons Officer): General, long-range sensors are tracking an inbound object. Identification computers indicate it is the reconnaissance droid we sent towards the Pegasus some time ago to infiltrate the Shelliak ships attempting to circle the Pegasus.

SG Rayegun: Captain, have the targeting computers on the rail guns been calibrated for long-range objects?

Carter: Sir, they’ve been cleared for short-range operation but we’ve only gotten them to 99.999% on long-range objects.

SG Rayegun: Then I suggest you get them fine tuned that last 0.001% on that recon droid. You have my leave to fire at will Captain.

Carter: Yes sir! Targeting droid with battery #1. Target locked.

{Carter speaks over the base intercom} Prepare for rail gun battery #1 firing.

Firing NOW!!

Carter: Sir, droid has been obliterated. Rail gun targeting is now at 100% accuracy.

SG Rayegun: Thank you Captain, you may cancel the Alert status.

Carter: Yes sir!

Well, with that little problem out of the way the Southern Command stands ready to do the same to any other “targets” that enter our surveillance range. Just as Spats has mentioned, I have for many years now ran the Area5Xp blog and for some…you should remember me from the BBS glory days.

Look for new posts from myself RSN (that’s “Real Soon Now” for those of you in Rio Linda).
