In more recent news...

I keep forgetting to update the home page when I change things on the site, resulting in a four year old “news” post sitting on top looking all important.

My friend Joshua has been using the site to post interesting fiction and host a play-by-post Amber game. The forums are far more active now than they have been in a while just in time for me to be too busy to participate! Fun times for all!

Moved to Radiant

If you are reading this, then Silver Insanity has successfully updated to a new CMS: Radiant.

Radiant is a Ruby on Rails application that provides a clean and simple but still powerful way to manage a web site. It’s also open source and extendable. (If you can’t tell, I like it.)

Unfortunately, the move means that all the old “/everything” URLs are broken. But that’s okay, because most of those pages were out of date anyway. For my links, check del.icio.us. My web comic list is also there, under the webcomic tag.

For things still on the site, check the side bar (to the right on every page) and the main page.

I’ve been getting a lot of e-mails recently about jewelry. If you’re looking for jewelry, you’re at the wrong site. This is, and always has been, a personal domain full of random things.

On the other hand, silver-insanity.com (note the dash) is a jewelry store. Once again:

Go to silver-insanity.com if you’ve come here for jewelry.

I may seem to be belaboring the point, but it appears that Silver-Insanity has been getting popular. I’m averaging about one e-mail a day for them.

Forums and LARP

Two new things appeared on Silver Insanity today.

The first is a new forum! Rather than opening a new forum for everything, I’m just going to have one central one for the entire site. No more piles of accounts, and everyone gets the upgrades at once.

The second thing is the reason I finally got around to the first: Between the Shadows It’s an independent Vampire the Requiem LARP running in Rochester, NY. Feel free to join us! Information on the game can be found at it’s site and questions can be posted in the Out of Character section of the forum

Don't Diet, Eat Naughty

This is a simple set of concepts, based on one basic rule. I don’t believe in dieting. When I need to control my weight, I need to focus on enjoying my food much more.
