Merry F%#$in Christmas

Overall it's been a very bad week for me personally. I'm really trying to get into the holiday spirit, but a week long adventure through the seedy side of the internet has my faith in humanity at an all time low...

On the positive side we had a little snow in the DC area and the Redskins are imploding, so at least it looks like Christmas.

After a week of behind the scenes issues at our site, most everything has been repaired and those items that haven't yet been addressed have a plan in place to get them fixed. Spam and security controls have been tightened, and in the process I've managed to find a few tweaks to speed up certain aspects of the site.

Anyway, sorry for the rant. It's time to spike the Egg Nog and build a fake fire and adore our fake tree.

We've just come out the backside of a publishing cycle ourselves, so I have appreciation for what a period of "chasing every damn thing" feels like. Get some sleep. And know that the meeting place you've created here is valued by your readers.

I believe it was four years ago this Christmas, at a time when I was feeling very emotionally and spiritually low, when a certain blogger notified me that my entry won a contest. I had written a one-liner about why I wanted to win a PS3 for my son, who was then 14 years old. A now defunct delivery service, which shall remain nameless, although their initials are DHL, "lost" the package, but you and your wonderful cohorts made sure my son had that wonderful gift. It went down in history as the best gift my son ever received, and we have you to thank.

Yes, Kevin, there really is a Santa Claus, but sometimes he, and the spirit of Christmas, don't appear in the costume we expect. May you have a very Merry Christmas.

Good to hear from you Joanne! We were very happy to get that PS3 to you, though it didn't go a smoothly as we hoped. Somewhere a DHL employee enjoyed the orignal PS3 that was sent to you, which they magically "forgot" to deliver.

Kevin, I appreciate all you have done to keep Wizbang around and healthy. I don't know what I would do every morning with my coffee. You have great bloggers and loyal commenters. We might not say it often enough, but we do appreciate your effort. We know it is not done by magic. Have a great Christmas. ww
