For the 3.5 weeks that PT was down, the ID Creationists managed to publish 0 new fake papers, so no big.  :p

Panda's Thumb is now back -- the comments work again.  By the way, it was down not for 3.5 weeks but for almost 8 weeks.

Ah, I misread 16th of June as 16th of July.

In any case, the ID Creationists still produced 0 papers in the interim.  :D

Pour one out for Ed Brayton, who died this morning from a chronic disease. He will be deeply missed.

Oh crap!

Back in 2005 had some exchanges with Ed over Behe and peer review. He was a character.

Maybe the Joe thread should be continued in a new thread, to get away from the need to bump the thing several times each page.

Just lock the thread and ban Gallien outright.  After this latest absolutely disgusting display by him over the Rittenhouse shootings, claiming the two people murdered deserved to die and brought it on themselves, he has no place at this site.   :angry:

Had it been up to me, Gallien would have been banned years ago. I have no idea why Our Gracious Host has allowed Gallien any posting privileges whatsoever. As ever, YMMV.

On second thought keep the thread open, just ban Gallien.   It is fine to laugh at his amazing scientific ignorance and stupidity:

Frequency = wavelength
Ice isn't made of water
Excess CO2 doesn't trap heat in the atmosphere
There is no theory of evolution
All scientific evidence supports a literal Genesis baraminology
The Earth age is only 6000 years but it is made of old material
Drinking bleach cures COVID-19
Jews are really Muslims
UFOs and space aliens are real and hiding on the planet
Pyramids have magic energy power

Oh, and among his many socks claiming to be the retired female marine biologist Sharon Mahoney.  :D  :D  :D

But when Joe started making fun of unarmed murder victims including one who was shot to death merely trying to disarm the shooter to stop him from killing anyone else Joe crossed a line.  :angry:  Time to ban this vile clown permanently.

or we could just let him smear his feces on his own little wall and ignore him.

Last few times I tried to get on Panda's Thumb, I got a page talking about unicorns and Github.

ETA: Huh. Tried again right after posting that, and PT came up that time.

The server is in Irving, Texas, and is at the mercy of Mother Nature and ERCOT.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Yeah, for about a week now, sometimes it works, sometimes it gets network error.

Let's send this weather back to the Arctic where it belongs! I hear that part of the world needs more freezing weather.

I wish I was in Irving right now.  My part of East Texas is mostly without power or water.  I’m stealing a little power from the local uni right now, but they’ve already called off in person school for me the first two days of next week because several campuses have pipe and/or power damage. At least the ice should melt in another couple of days.

Oh dear, good luck! There's talk of water shortages on the news, so you might want to save some of that snow & ice.

(when we have fresh snow, I try to get some for watering our plants. Some of them don't like tap water, pernickety b*****ds)

We finally bugged out.  Our fireplace couldn’t keep up, and the water situation was bad.  Melting snow for the toilet tanks is not the most exciting way to pass the day.

Safe and warm in Dallas now.  We’re waiting to hear when anything come back.  Our house was undamaged when we left, so hopefully we can get back soon.  Luckily my school has taken two more days off to finish repairs, so we don’t have to hurry.

Good to hear you're safe and warm. Is this Dallas a suburb of Cancun?

He was an in and out quicky.

In the 5 years I was working in Yucatan I never had the time or the cash to see the flesh spots like Cancun. Now days I lack the interest.

I finally got to Chichen Itza a couple of years ago, been on my bucket list since about 1969.  Tulum was also amazing.

Frontier said, let all the static IP addresses change!

I said, you've got a peculiar notion of static IP address.

However, the DNS changes are in and so far things look OK. Marc was able to set up routing so both the old and the new IP addresses resolve correctly, and that makes things easier.

I take the lack of posts as evidence I’m not the only one who couldn’t load the site the last couple of days?
