  1. The Department of Candles appreciates these efforts and the Plans of the World Council will continue on.

  2. g’mornin’, ‘rons

    never attribute to malice that which can be explained by simple hardware failure

  3. On this day

    2014: IRS Commissioner John Koskinen refuses to apologize during a hearing for lost emails that might have shed light on the tax agency’s targeting of tea party and other groups before the 2010 and 2012 elections.

  4. The Wall Street Journal

    The owner of Eskimo Pie treats said it would change the name of the nearly century-old ice cream brand because the term is derogatory

    Uncle Toms Black outside white inside delightful treats

  5. Omg I’m so glad everything is ok. When you went down I really thought the left won. I couldn’t sleep. Thank you for setting this up.

  6. Good Morning

    I’m not glad that AoS is broke, but I’m glad it’s not my computer like I thought last night

  7. Till I saw Pixie’s post explaining the failure, I was convinced they had taken Acr out, and deplatformed the site.

  8. I thought the Q had been woke-bombed, too. Glad it’s not the case! Hopefully all is up and running before the rally tonight.

  9. “The owner of Eskimo Pie treats said it would change the name of the nearly century-old ice cream brand because the term is derogatory”

    Also because there are actually no Eskimos in Eskimo Pies.

  10. Lloyds of London agrees to pay reparations to blacks. Worst thing that could have happened. As BLM spread from here to there, now new demands for reparations will spring up all over the U.S., probably burny, rioty ones.

  11. Morning Misplaced Mouth Breathers

    I guess the hamsters got tired of the “Defund The Hamsters eleventy” protests and walked off the job?

  12. I thought Ace may have been trapped under his formally wall mounted TV. Glad things are coming back.

  13. I guess the hamsters got tired of the “Defund The Hamsters eleventy” protests and walked off the job?

    Will they be replaced by otters?

  14. Good morning, mini-Horde! Was worried that the AOSHQ had become an unplanned donation to some nefarious entity.

  15. Thanks JJ. Nice photo up top. This is not as good as I hoped it would be this morning, but is certainly better than my greatest fears. What time did it crash yesterday? I was away for a while last evening and when I got back to the ‘puter and refreshed a tab I had open it disappeared and I figured some folks got so wild that the thread got nuked.

    Then when I couldn’t get a home page I got worried. Went to bed after an hour of waiting on the ONT.

  16. Thank you JJS! I was tweeting the world last night, and I never tweet…thanks for plsting this. Glad for the backup.

  17. I was initially a tiny bit worried about a DOS attack. Then I saw a BAD GATEWAY error and for the first time in my life was happy reading that particular error message.

    Going to the flea market in a couple of hours. Grandson the Elder is visiting for a couple of weeks (YAY!) and I have promoted him to Wagon Captain for today’s adventure.

  18. I was also very discouraged last night thinking that my Ace had been killed by the mob. I am relieved that this is not the case. Carry on, Horde!

  19. “Charges against Steven Ray Baca in the Monday shooting of Albuquerque protester Scott Williams have been dropped”

    This is good news. If someone says “I’m gonna kill you” and then tries that’s a pretty good reason to shoot them.

  20. Dang ! I was up extra hours fiddling with my computer, resetting my internet, and checking for viruses/malware…

    LOL

    Sleep Deprivation and PC Troubleshooting are just not compatible.

  21. Well, ace.mu.nu is up again, m/l.

    Can I get Pixy to come over and figure out why mindfulwebworks.com has been down for days?

    This blog is crazy! Where are the message numbers? Why aren’t the boxes gray?

    JJ – Take the day off from Morning Report. Heck, take tomorrow off, too. 😀
