I’m Here! I Swear!

Oh God I hate when I try to do something and it doesn’t work properly and that causes another problem and I don’t see it so I don’t know to fix it and I get news that some people think my site has been down since Saturday.

It hasn’t been. That was operator error. I was trying to create a placeholder home page for a new domain I registered and the turdlett software stored the index file in the home directory instead of the proper subdirectory, but my BigDumpTruck bookmarks point to index.php (that’s actually the file I use) so I did not see what apparently you all were seeing.

That would explain why the past few days my hit count has been….17. For the day. Down from the heady years when I was getting 150+ hits a day, I can tell you that.

So please come back! I’m here, I swear!

Twitter Twitter, Tweet Tweet

I set up an account on Twitter a little while ago. I’ve not said very much over there, because I realized that nobody, not even Mr. Dump, had subscribed to my Tweets. I don’t feed too badly about it, because I can be frighteningly mundane. However, I have an application on my iPhone that makes it easier for me to keep up with people tweets, and to write my own.

So I’m officially announcing that you can follow my tweets if you want. If you don’t, I won’t feel very badly. Much.

If any of you are on twitter, leave your name down in the comments to I can find you and add you.

Fans of the Dump on Facebook

Hey, if you’re over on Facebook, feel free to join the Fans of the Big DumpTruck group (do a search people – I want you to put some effort into this, okay? That will prove your fan-dom.)

I cannot pretend that we’ll end up with as many members as, say, the Fans of High School Musical or Obama, but we can certainly break into double digits, right?

Okay, you slackers, here is a link to the group.

The Champions

Yes, yes indeed, gas hit a new high today. Thank you CNN. Did you not hear what I said yesterday? Am I just whistling into the wind over here? Sheesh, it’s like a girl can’t change the world just by writing about it and posting it to her website. I have 60-100 hits a day, are you telling me that one of those is NOT CNN? AP? The Leominster Champion? Sheesh.
Speaking of the Leominster Champion and champions in general, Junior’s minor league team, Piper Electric, won the playoffs (North Leominster Little League) on Saturday, so their team will get to go to the cities in August. He’s been playing baseball in that league for 5 or 6 years now (I keep losing count) and this is the first time his team has been this good. It was a really great group of kids who were a pleasure to watch. The team we beat, Valliere’s, was a worthy opponent and my personal choice for the team to win if we couldn’t.
I took a team photo after the game and gave copies to the three coaches. The sister of one of the coaches also took pictures that afternoon, and there’s a 50/50 chance that the one I gave them will make the paper. I don’t know which paper, but I’ll let you know if it does.
p.s. This is kind of a test for people who actually read all the way to the end of one of my posts. I recently signed on with FaceBook. I don’t really want to post my info out there for the universe to find, because I do like some level of privacy. If folks who also have a website “advertise” that they are on Facebook, how do you do it? Did you create a separate account for your website readers? Or did you find that people don’t necessarily friend you even when you make the info readily available?p.p.s. At least one person from my blogroll sent me a note saying that she’s in Facebook, but apparently she’s got a hidden profile because I cannot find her to add her.
