Do you ever get that feeling? That feeling like you are really bored and want something to do. But when you think of something to do, you’re too lazy to actually do it. That’s how I feel right now.
I thought to myself, “I haven’t played Minecraft in a while. Maybe I will play skyblock.” But then I thought “Well, I would have to find the forum thread, download the map, extract it, find the directory where Minecraft saves it’s maps, move it there, aw screw it.” And then I proceeded to continue clicking through the internet and being bored. I’m guess I am just bored, but I’m okay with that because I am also really not in the mood to do anything, so I will just sit here, watching various random videos on the internet until I think of something to do that will be worth the effort.
So, I decided that the old system for logging in was not really working, so now you can log in and post comments using the Jetpack system. Jetpack comments make logging relatively easy. You can comment using Facebook, Twitter, Google+, WordPress.com, or your in-house account. This makes it super easy to just log in and comment. If you would like to have an in-house account, you can register using the register button right below the login form. Hopefully this will be a suitable comments system that will keep me happy. If not, we will just change it again.
I am nervous. A few days ago (January 20th to be exact), Equestria Daily posted a rumor about an upcoming third Equestria Girls movie, and now a few days have passed, and it seems to be legit. I’m not surprised and I knew this was coming, but I am still nervous.
The first Equestria Girls movie was okay. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t really bad either, it was just okay. I actually really liked Rainbow Rocks. I think it improved upon the first one a lot and after I got over the fact that they weren’t horses, it was a lot easier to actually enjoy the movie. If they follow the trend, Friendship Games will be good, right? This makes sense, but I am still worried.

Hello! I am proud to report that HTTPS is now activated here on ColtonDRG.com. Not only is it activated, but it’s enforced, so even if you come here from a link without HTTPS, you will be automatically redirected to the secure, HTTPS enabled version! This means that all traffic to and from ColtonDRG.com will be completely secure and encrypted! For more information about what HTTPS is and how it works, read my earlier blog post about SSL. Enjoy your safer and more secure experience!
If you are looking to start a blog, I highly recommend WordPress, if you are willing and able to pay for hosting and host it yourself.
I like WordPress. I really do. I use it here on coltondrg.com (if it wasn’t already obvious) and I think it is a really good price of software. WordPress.com is not really WordPress though, it is WordPress’ bastard child that has a serious lack of features. Continue reading “WordPress.com Rant”
Skype annoys me at times. Actually, Skype annoys me almost all the time. I use it very frequently, but that’s because it’s the only really good way to keep in touch with my friends. I don’t particularly like Skype.
One huge concern with Skype is security and privacy. Skype is owned by Microsoft, and there is a really good chance that it is full of backdoors so that Microsoft and the NSA can listen in and record your conversations. This annoys me, not because I have something to hide, but because it’s an invasion of my privacy and a violation of my rights. Enter MEGAchat.

So, Netflix got that controversial movie that everyone got in a big pissy fit over when Sony axed it. I must admit, it peaked my interest a bit, so I decided to sit down and watch it.
So, what did I think? Well, it was fine. It was pretty funny, and I did enjoy it to some extent, but it wasn’t amazing. I got a few good chuckles out of it, but that’s about it. Continue reading “The Interview”
I am going to talk about two things here. The first thing is the blog’s theme, and the second thing is the comments system.
So, first, let’s talk about the blog’s theme. Earlier today, we were using the new Twenty Fifteen theme, which in my personal opinion, is complete shit. The text is too big, the site is too narrow, and everything feels super claustrophobic for me. Maybe it’s just because I write a lot, but it really felt uncomfortable. As you can see, now it looks much better. Continue reading “Twenty Fourteen and Comments”
Late last night (technically it was early this morning) I posted about a ton of server problems I was having. I am happy to say that they all seem to be fixed! This is good because now I can move on, and get back to the important stuff.
Today I want to talk a little bit about SSL. SSL makes your connection to a server much more secure. If somebody performs some sort of attack on your network, if you are connecting to websites using SSL, the attacker won’t be able to see any useful information. If you are connecting without SSL, they can potentially see every single bit of data that is transferred. Yikes!

This post is going to be about the Dark Realm Gaming web server being broken, but first, I would like to make a note about how the domain is changed. That didn’t take long, did it? The blog is now hosted on http://coltondrg.com/ instead of http://wordpress.coltondrg.gq/. Pretty neat, huh!? Anyhow, on to the topic of this post!
So, you may have noticed, but the Dark Realm Gaming web server is completely fried. Well, not completely fried, but pretty much fried. I am astonished that I managed to get the blog back up at all, let alone move it to a new domain under these conditions.
