UPDATES May 2016

I am still working on the social media accounts issue(s), but I have gotten some other work done. Thanks to some spurious information I received, I uninstalled Flash from my system and now I can't get it to reinstall under FireFox. Chrome says it is built-in, but I don't use Chrome much (unless I have to -- which appears to now be the case, if I want to use Flash). Honestly, it seemed to be more trouble than it was worth anyway.

Updated Dungeons & Dragons page.
Updated Fantasy Directory
Updated Sci-Fi Directory

UPDATES - March, 2016

I know it's been a year since I updated the weblog, but I haven't had a computer! Besides, all the changes I've made since then have been minor.

Published 503 error page
Updated Home, Entertainment, 403, 404 design
Updated weblog design, content

There is an issue with commenting on some of the blogs due to a conflict with Google+.

April Updates

We've almost finalized the new design, we're just hammering-out new issues as we go. Still, everything is mostly set in place. You are welcome to visit and let us know what you think - we'd love to hear from you!

The OddBlog was never about recording every, little incident which defies rational explanation but, instead, a sort of curated collection of the weird and inexplicable. The Cybercultralist was always about Cyberculture, not merely a technology magazine. If you thought I'd abandoned these outlets, you're wrong; I simply have not had time to maintain them properly and they've strayed from their roots.

But, now that the heavy-lifting is over on The Weirding, I'm going to have more time to post. Very soon, all of the blogs will be active once again (including this one).you just have to wait it out.

One of the fields into which we are moving is audio/visual. We are still collecting gear and software to aid us in our endeavors but we hope to be prepared to bring you a far superior show (production-wise, at least) as well as maybe some other fare (podcasts, shorts, and more). Note that, due to financial constraints, this will not start happening for a few more months and it will be a few weeks before you start noticing major changes.

We'll do our best to roll-out everything smoothly and with as little incident as possible.

A Note on Content

I wanted to note that by including certain works or articles, The Weirding does not condone criminal or malicious behavior. We appeal to a certain subsect of society that appreciates the deviance in humanity and we believe that while there are things to be learned from such, the behavior itself is an illness that cannot be tolerated by any means.

The inclusion of such material is in no way meant to promote deviant behavior of any kind. I simply find some of the things such people wrote and said to be profound even in ways I'm certain they didn't mean. Studies have proven that in areas where pornography is readily available, the incidences of sexual-related crime decreases, yet Ted Bundy insisted the common factor amongst violent criminals with whom he had contact had one thing in common. This was a popular notion at the time, remember; serial killer Ted Bundy backs the Moral Majority's opinion on pornography.

Either way, The Weirding covers a lot of territory and the inclusion of some objectionable material is noted on the entrance.

January 2015 Updates

I made some primary changes to the Chill and Champions sections. I will come back in later and make title graphics for the sidebar content. I removed the icon bars from all of the tertiary pages for navigational purposes.

I interviewed Douglas Paszkiewicz of Arsenic Lullabies. I also hung the Features page. I included it there and included the Features page on the Entertainment page. I added Underground TV to the Entertainment page along with Geekshed IRC. I redrew all of the main navigational points: Index, Entertainment, RPG, Features, and Genre Directories.

I updated all of the blogs and gave them cosmetic upgrades, as well. I also changed the RSS feed output and need to start using a Pagebreak. I combined all of the pertinent blogs' RSS feeds into one stream using Feed Informer.

I created an HTML page for every B-Raters episode. I am working on developing the B-Raters blog to include write-ups for every movie.
