Dismantling the Mirror

Posted by RightWingRocker on February 22, 2008

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve had any problems with Blogger, and I’ve had enough of the headaches involved in maintaining two virtually identical blogs.  One of them has to go, or at least become more or less dormant.

The RWRepublic will remain at its current Blogspot address (with rightwingrocker.com also available), and the mirror site at wordpress.com will remain, but will not be updated.  Should this change for any reason, I’ll let you know.  TheWordPress site had few, if any, regular readers as far as I can tell, so anyone who’s been visiting there can come here to the Blogger site.

The WordPress site will continue to exist in case there are problems in the future, and maybe I’ll update it from time to time.  If you’ve been coming to the WordPress version of the RWRepublic, I enthusiastically invite you to come see us at the home of the RWRepublic!

Another Great Voice Goes Silent

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 25, 2007

What’s with bloggers these days?

At each and every turn, another voice of the right goes silent. This weekend, Katey announced that her blog will be shut down in the very near future.

Kate was truly one that belonged to the GLOB (Gorgeous Ladies Of the Blogosphere). I’ve seen pics.

With the voices of Delfts, Paul, CJ, Mama, TripleNeck, and Fox all going silent, I’m going to need to have a new section of the BlogRWRoll for “The Silent MajoRWRity”.

Folks, I promise to hang in there as long as you are reading, despite my current lapse in productivity. It’s the school thing. Studying is eating up all of the time I used to devote to research and writing.

In the meantime, all my best wishes and a musical prayer go out to Kate.

The Lord bless you and keep you
The Lord lift His countenance upon you,
And give you peace, and give you peace;
The Lord make His face to shine upon you,
And be gracious, and be gracious;
The Lord be gracious, gracious unto you.

– Peter C. Lutkin (1858-1931)

Exam Prep …

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 24, 2007

I was going to send blogger kudos to the Pope for his relaxing restrictions on the Latin Mass, but I realized that was all I knew about current events, due to my intense studying for the next big tech exam.

Another interference is the performing world. We went from nothing to rehearsing two nights a week and from no active clients to three, all in the space of a couple of weeks. Not that it’s a bad thing or a problem, but it does cut into blogging time (and time to read anything other than the current tech manual).

After the exam, I’ll make a run around the blogosphere and get something up. I should be taking it sometime late next week.

Say a prayer. Failure is not an option.

MS Certified

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 8, 2007

It’s official. RWR is now officially a Microsoft Certified Professional. I passed the exam (easier than I thought it would be, thank God), and now it’s time for a career move. Hopefully big bucks are in order, especially down the road after I complete the MCSA and MCSE exams.

This should explain why I’ve been as quite as I have in general over the last few months. This should continue into the fall, but I will endeavor to try to do something on here whenever I can, or at least when I hear or see something I think is important.

Thanks to everyone for your patience, and thanks in advance for continuing to be patient as I make this big change. Please do keep coming by and help to keep the RWRepublic alive, even if I’m not always my usual obnoxious self.

Back to the Grind

Posted by RightWingRocker on June 26, 2007

It will take a little bit to get something together.  I’m still two sheets to the wind from the weekend.

Hit up the BlogRWRoll though.  There’s lots there to see!

Happy Fathers’ Day

Posted by RightWingRocker on June 17, 2007

It could easily be said that there has never been a year that my father has deserved a fitting tribute than this one. I had been thinking of a list of all the wonderful reasons I am proud to be my father’s son, but I’ve been WAY too busy to write the post.

So today I’ll be enjoying my Fathers’ Day with my daughters, and hopefully getting to see the man of the hour later, maybe after dinner.

Happy Fathers’ Day to all you other dads out there!

RWR

P.S. – BIG post coming up early this week. Watch for it!

Another Retro-Blogoversary Wish

Posted by RightWingRocker on May 30, 2007

I’m SUCH a loser.

Last year, I forgot Sage’s Blogoversary and missed it by over a week. THIS year, I miss by more than a month.

April 19 … Gotta put that on my calendar!

Anyway, congrats, Sage, for hanging in there another year!

And please do accept my apologies … again. I’m such a shitty blogfather.

Memorial Day 2007

Posted by RightWingRocker on May 26, 2007

Last Memorial Day, I linked over to Delftsman, who had up a really great cartoon that catches the essence of people’s screwed up priorities this day and age. So, I’ll just re-post last year’s post as a reminder of WHY we all stay home and barbecue. There is a reason, you know. There is someone being honored.

Sunday, May 28, 2006 4:48 PMMemorial Day

Delftsman has said it better than any could.

I regret that loss of meaning. This is supposed to be a day of reflection, a day of honoring those that died in the defense of everything we hold dear; a day to realize that freedom isn’t free and that we are blessed that so many brave patriots in the past were willing to pay that ultimate price so that we may feel secure in our land.

Why is it that a foreign-born American has more of a clue than many of those born here? Too many people take this country for granted.

RWR

Delfts is always right on the mark.

Yeah … I Know

Posted by RightWingRocker on May 21, 2007

Yes, things have been quiet around the RWRepublic. I’m too busy to research the “Immigration Bill” and too bored with everything else to post anything about it. What I’m really looking for is something “pithy” to comment on, not some long-winded treatise that I don’t have time to read in the first place.

There just isn’t much of that.

Any suggestions?

Blogger Break

Posted by RightWingRocker on May 3, 2007

Hey all! Checking in and noticing I haven’t posted in over a week.

I’ll need a little more time, as I’m pretty busy with things on the home front.  I hope to be back in full force by the end of next week.

In the meantime, please keep checking back, as there’s plenty to read here – especially if you’re new to the RWRepublic – and once I’m back, you know I’ll be back in the RIGHT way.

Still Out and About

Posted by RightWingRocker on March 28, 2007

Still out and about the blogosphere looking for something really interesting. Not having much luck.

I’ll be checking in again if I find something.

Call this an open thread if you want (even though open threads aren’t really the rage around here).

Wrapping It Up

Posted by RightWingRocker on March 23, 2007

Just checking in, folks.

The three week run ends tomorrow night, so hopefully I can get something up here soon. I’ve been over at the Rott and RWN and a few other places raising Cain with the loonies.

Maybe I’ll have something to report on soon.

Blogoversary Activities

Posted by RightWingRocker on February 1, 2007

I think I’ll just update the comments on the mirror site at wordpress today.

I’ll be activating comments there as well on new posts. BlogSpot should still be the home for the RWRepublic for now.

Blogger’s Blogoversary Gift

Posted by RightWingRocker on February 1, 2007

“You may only do this once …”

That is, you may only skip the “Upgrade to New Blogger” page and move directly to the dashboard once.

This sucks royally.

RWR

Update: Well … so far it seems like it’s been pretty painless … we’ll see how it goes from here…

Happy Quiet New Year

Posted by RightWingRocker on December 28, 2006

I may be pretty quiet over the next few days, possibly including the New Year’s holiday. The weekend tour will take me into the area of our nation’s capital, with a possible last-minute booking for New Year’s at the Jersey Shore.

So, in case I don’t make it back to blog-land, here’s wishing everyone a very Happy New Year.

Umm … maybe we can try an open thread … Also if anyone is using the “new” Blogger, please let me know what you think of it. I’ve been really leery of changing.
