Update, 2020/12/01
Please see announcement in Forum Stuff for details.

Today, 2020/11/18, suspicions have been expressed that there has been a data breach.
At least some DisMembers' login data may have been compromised.
While the facts behind those suspicions have not yet been established, your Administerrerr is treating them as credible. He is looking into this. He will try and beef up security.
Even if you did so only recently:
Please change your password!
Please click here, or use the menu ( button) to navigate to the the User Control Panel, therein to the Profile Tab, and there click Edit Account Settings. You should get it from there on.
For a safe password that will resist brute-force attempts (which we have been subject to in the past), please use upper and lower case letters, AND numerals, AND symbols, and make it as long as you feel feasible. 16 characters seems to be recommended these days.
DO NOT use a password you also use elsewhere.
While your Administerrerr tries to keep this place safe. Get real. Security here is mostly by obscurity, that is, no one serious enough to crack us like a rotten egg is likely to even bother. But if one does, you don't want the safety of your email of facebook or whatever to depend on one mostly blind, mostly clueless autodidact who can't work at this more than a few hours at a time, if that much.

If you used a password here that you also used elsewhere, you must set a new password there, also!
A different password, this time. If someone did breach us, the first thing they are likely to do with your login credentials is to try them out elsewhere. Login credentials compromised here are compromised everywhere else, also. If you did reuse a password, but with a different email, your administerrerrerr strongly urges you NOT rely on that different email keeping you safe. This whole thing runs on a database. That means your half-blind administerrerrerr can operate a database. Do you honestly think identity thieves, and those who sell them passwords by the ten-thousands, won't?
If you get an error message about an invalid form, click here.
Every form you can debauch is on a time limit. Even if you feel you've been reasonably quick, some browsers seem to think otherwise.
Recommendation: type your password in something like a text editor or word processor, highlight (making sure not to highlight any leading or trailing spaces), copy, then reload the account settings page, paste, paste, debauch, and be all quick about it. Like Dan said, back in the when. Be like the housefly, and see the events of the world unfold in liquid slowness, or something to that effect.
If you cannot reset a forgotten password, click here.
The "I forgot my password" function has been buggy for a while, I apologize. I will look into that, also, over the next few days.
UPDATE: I have looked into this. I think it should work now, but I can't test it all with my admin accounts. Anyone who tries it, please do let me know whether it works or not.
You yourself, meanwhile, might look into your SPAM folder. I know, I know, but humor me, please.
Also, if you have been around for a bit, try and remember whether the email you entered there was also the email you registered with back in the when. I'm sure the email addresses associated to some user-accounts are still hotmail.
If none of that solves your confound, hit me through the contact form, or grab me via dm on the Facebooks, or if none of that works, speak up in the Midget Circus. I will look out for you there, but I can't guarantee nothing.

Pissing off 1%ers

Pissing off two 1%ers on Sturgis weekend....priceless

A couple patched up vest wearing HAs walked into the bar in Deadwood where I was having dinner, I got up, walked to the front desk, asked for my food to go vs dine in, and to pay.
The manager asked why (I'm dressed for work, so business attire) I suddenly wanted to leave.

I said "I'm not interested in dining in a place that serves domestic terrorists" (inner laughter at UTMC dismemberment).
Mgr: Oh, well it's the rally, so they're pretty much everywhere
Me: That's fine, I don't think I'll be back though. They're your clientele, and that's your business. I'd like to pay for my food and be on my way.
Mgr: Well, they shouldn't be wearing their colors, I can ask them to take them off.
Me: I wouldn't bother I'm leaving anyway.
Mgr [walks over to HAs] disgruntled looks come my way, and then so do three people.
Me: [inner voice 'fuck it, too late now, gonna go for it']
HA who is apparently the broiest, since he's allowed to speak: Why you gotta give this guy shit, we're just here for food?
HA silent bob: [frowns]
Me: And I didn't bother you, I asked for my check and my order, and then I'll go
HA broiest: Why don't you just go instead
Mgr: turns pale
Me: No thank you, I've placed an order, and I intend to get my food, pay, and leave
HA broiest: What's your fucking deal
HA silent bob: [frowns a frownier frown]
Me: [raises eyebrow and stares quizzically at HA broiest}
HA broiest: You think we shouldn't get service because of our colors?
Me: I think I don't want to dine in the same establishment as members of a nationwide crime syndicate [inner me 'used syndicate in a sentence today, 2 points!']
HA broiest: Fuck you, get your food and get the fuck out of here [turns and walks back to table pouting]
HA silent bob: [does 1980's movie "bad kid" head thrust and then goes back to table, also pouting]
Mgr: looks about to puke
Me: I won't be back, and as is necessary (actually a requirement, not my rule), will report my encounter to our travel office for future hotel and dining reservation purposes

And as I waited FOR THE NEXT 15 MINUTES FOR A DAMN REUBEN, I looked as smug as I could manage, sipping my water while the sleeveless patchy kids scowled, looked my way, pouted, and scowled.
I'm glad it didn't end with police involvement, but admittedly a little disappointed.

I was considering walking through Sturgis on Thursday, since I'm here, (it's actually where you get onto the interstate from Deadwood) and it would seem a shame not to. I thought the moco might even have their beta model cylon on display. Now I don't think I'm inclined to even give that much of a shit.

"...when someone asks you if you're a god, you say "YES "!

"UTMC, it's an international disorganization of racers, aficionados, mechanics, lunatics, and scumbags. It's like an online motorcycle Mos Eisley."
