Technical Issues

Surviving the World is currently working out technical issues after Bluehost unceremoniously deactivated the account on Thursday morning, October 14, without warning.


I don't know why people pick such small and flaky hosting companies.

Anyway, here's a copy from my (decently hosted) webserver:

I find an easy way to make the geek/nerd line definable is that when a geek does something he tends inspire and wow other people in what ever topic it tends to be. A nerd is someone who could do the same thing but tends to creep people out or offend them.

Example: Big bang theory. Leonard is a geek. Sheldon is a nerd.

You can play D & D and be a geek about it and try to get others to play and want everyone to have fun or be a nerd about it and dress up and get so much into character that everyone just thinks your creepy.

Man, you guys are getting bad at reading the whole thread!


Just my opinion.

But some people say otherwise.




I read that but I didn't click it. So the real thing is "Man, you guys are getting bad at clicking every unknown link in the whole thread!"

If you either don't know that you can mouse over a link and see where it goes, or don't know about XKCD, you don't belong in this thread :D
