I finally picked up the domain a few days ago, and while I’ve had this idea floating around for a while now, I decided to put the plan into action today instead of editing my final essay. nikkysoutherland.com
The goal was to be slightly funny, readable, and perhaps impart something you didn’t know about me before. If you have any suggestions about links that I don’t have, or things to put under “!Nikky” (Not Nikky), feel free to give a shout out.
You might have noticed the site was down for a few days about a week ago. We had some drive failures that ravaged the 4-disk hardware-RAID5 data storage scheme on the server. So short story: we didn’t have time to recover because of BTS traffic and the cost of being down, so it was reformatted. I lost data posted since May, but that was all recovered from RSS feed backups. It should be stable now.
On another note: you no longer need to register to leave comments, and gravatars are now turned on. I’m also generating and downloading backups daily now. :)
The System is down. The System is down.
Two additional and exciting authors have been added to Troll Drops. They’re both funny, smart, and pithy, and I hope you enjoy their observations as much as I do. Look for their first posts in the next few days!
Danni is a junior at Gonzaga University majoring in history. Primarily, she will be focusing her attention on politics, but will deviate from that occasionally, or often depending on her mood, and include entries regarding other topics. The topics may include but are not limited to pop culture, sociology, feminism, the literary genre, law, the environment, government and various other topics that strike Danni as pertinent to necessary dialogue in our society and nation.
Brian is a UW Political Science major. His interests include: football, politics, and MSNBC. You will likely see posts from him discussing state/national politics and the media.
