Owing to bur.st’s recent downtime, I decided to hop on the bandwagon and move to Dreamhost with the rest of the dorksville.net crowd. It’ll be slower (bur.st is only on the other side of the country, not just the world), but hopefully up more often.

It’s a stupid question. We both know it’s not rust. It’s barely even red. My boss, however, does know what it is.

“It’s [customer]‘s.”
“Ah yes. Nobody likes fixing her computer.”
“Ew.”

After-sales support is a noble thing…
