Goodbye Slashdot; Hello Blogsome!

And so I decided to leave my Slashdot blog behind. The reason?

Well, their April Fools’ joke of changing their theme to pink went too far because they never tested its effects to the journal’s section of the site. As you can see here, my blog readers are not able to read the headlines of my blog posts.

Mind you, I am absolutely fine with the actual joke, but when they don’t test its effects to the journal section, it means that they don’t really care about that section of the site that much. And if they don’t care about it or maintain it properly, why would I care? (the journal could have had some extremely easy touch-ups over the years to make it better, but it didn’t, so this bug is just the tip of the iceberg, not the whole reason for moving over here). 

And so the future of my rants will now be hosted at Blogsome. I might move some of my blog posts over here, or I might not. Hopefully, Slashdot won’t delete them.
