New Host Test Post

We were down for approximately a day because I was coordinating the change while on a trip to Laos last week.

A pox upon whoever bought JaguarPC and ruined a once-great webhost. My new host is much, much better, and I’m paying less than a quarter what I was to JaguarPC. I was with them for over twelve years – the last few years, their service got worse and worse and finally, they tried to double their fees on my yearly invoice, so fuck them. Want an honest webhost review for Jaguar PC? They are dishonest. They are slow. They suck. Great, hope that helps someone makes a decision.

We are Cosmic Buddha

Aadab arz hai.

They are not us, yo :

Cosmic Buddha has never charged for music, mostly because we know we suck (although that obviously does not stop others). We have not released music for many years, but we have the Real Media files, several mixtapes, and Y2K coding errors to prove we were first. Our band predates our blog on this domain by 10 years or so, and it’s been going since 2003.

Also, here’s some album art and gig posters from back in the day:

The DRAGON year.
Funk you, dude!
Apologies to Rollins Band…

UPDATE: Really?

Will blogging get a second chance?

Maybe after FB withers and joins Hi5 and MySpace in the Afternet, blogging will come back big… I really don’t care that much, but it would be kind of cool to see people writing more and emoji-ing less ūüėČ

Also, WordPress completely prevented my posting capabilities today until I installed their new editor plugin called Gutenberg, which really reminds me of early HTML editing software (PageMill? GoLive? Claris?). I mean, I thought we ditched block editors for simpler editing tools… Or are there only nerds and techies still blogging?

Flushing out the cobwebs.

I’ve done a clean install of WordPress because things were getting slow and I had problems using Jetpack and some outside services as well.

It was a pain in the ass, and I may change my webhost in the next month or two, but things are running a lot faster now.

This is a test. Or a pineapple pen.

YES, IT’S A SCAM.

Do not reply to the message.

Do not check out their shitty website.

They want to sell you shit you don’t need and/or cheat you somehow; it’s what they do.

That is all.

P.S. People looking down on you love to use the word “dissent.”

Um, a post magically disappeared…

…After I was transferred to a “new and more powerful server” by webhost. I guess it is powerful enough to make a post disappear.

Did you hear me?

WILL THIS POST REMAIN?

NEW!

MORE POWERFUL!!
