Welcome to what you've been waiting for.
Zut Alors! A new, exciting bilingual name. A new domain name, and the registrars, they are Canadian, like us. No need to panic, though: the same dull, meandering, rarely updated content will keep you company. The fleurs-de-lys and my head (an actual photo of my head) provide the minimally required quantities of Canadian content to keep the CRTC off my back. Though some Péquistes could hunt me down over the fleur-de-lys thing, though. Your thoughts? Too much francophone baiting? Or am I right on the money?
Recently, though, I've found myself asking a question similar to one which comes up in the House of Commons from time to time, namely, "What should we do about The Other Place?" I, of course, am talking about the old Branflakes Dot Net domain. In the Commons, they're referring to
Hell The Senate. Should I burn it in effigy? Bury it at sea? Send it a rejection letter? Laud it with gifts?
At one point, I had considered replacing it with a portfolio-style website extolling my awesome glories as a human being and Library Systems Administrator. Then an interesting thing happened. I got a job interview in a far away land, for a position as a Library systems person. It seems my glories are manifested already in my resumé! Who knew? On that note, I'll be spending my birthday at Okanagan College, Kelowna, British Columbia. I promise to have a piece of pie or cake, with a candle, before I fly home overnight that night though.
To reiterate, welcome!
(offscreen stage whisper) To....
(offscreen stage whisper) Zut Alors dot CA...
Something! Dot CA!
Tales from my sordid vacation in the Northeastern corner of the continent will come later this week.
Addendum [August 18]: Sorry, everyone. I forgot that when I moved to the new server, I forgot to install ImageMagick. No wonder no one has commented for the last month. You can now, though.
Congrats on the job interview, Bran. At the very least, it's a coolReplyDelete
trip all the way across the country!
I'll miss branflakes.net ... I think it suited you, but perhaps
zutalors will grow on me. It may save you future legal action from the
cereal brand owners, however. ;)
I am having many love for zutalors! I saw coochi coochi too!ReplyDelete
Congrats on the joearb interview, guy. Give'er!
Congrats on the new job, Brandon. BC will be strange and exciting and rainy.ReplyDelete
And good job on the new website, with an appropriate .ca name, just like it was meant to be. I'm looking forward to getting ipeter.ca up and running, one of these days.
Interview. Not job. But thanks anyway. ;-)ReplyDelete
WOW...I get bogged down in work, take a vacation, come back and look what happens! Look!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on your interview Brandon. It excites me in wonderful ways beyond my understanding. I'm proud of you!
If they don't hire you though...they're wankers. They're all wankers and I'll shun BC forever. FOREVER.
Gee, Brandon, do you think you should maybe update us on the job situation...?ReplyDelete
I was just getting used to remembering to go to zutalors.ca, and now you've gone and switched back to branflakes.net! What gives!ReplyDelete
