VibraExciter: cyberdildonic pleasure for the man who twitters a lot.

01.10.2008 @ 12:18 PM in Lifestream
vibra_2_1.jpg What do you get the guy who has every cellphone gadget imaginable? You get him the VibraExciter, one the the few cyberdildonic devices tailored for men. In short, it's a cock ring with two eggs attached to a hands free unit that goes off for when your phone gets a call or a text. I'd be afraid to get this, with the amount of tweets i get on my phone, especially after @keithburtis or @jowyang gets on a roll, I don't think I'd be able to maintain a flaccid state. vibra_1.jpg

Twitter Stats

01.07.2008 @ 3:46 PM in Lifestream
Twitter (wiki) is one of those things that means nothing to some, something fun to a few, and the new way of life to the rest. Las February, I picked up twitter as a new wave, thought I get social with the new buzz. Little did I know that it would soon connect to be the perfect alt blog; an ability for me to send out shouts of information that I didn't really need to make a blog post out of.  Twitter has proved with it's API that it doesn't matter the amount of information you have, its how you can use that information. One great example has been the most recent Twitter Stats perl script whipped up by D.Cortesi, who wanted a way to find out what he's been up to with Twitter over the past year. Originally scripted in perl with use in Numbers on OSX, he posted the code and shortly thereafter, bugs were fixed, code reengineered and polished to work into ruby and googlechart and gnuplot. Here's my stats below, thanks to @twistednexus for chrunching the script for me... Buffawhat_twitter.png It turns out that I talk to my bear friends on twitter a lot (@steiger, @cantorum, @bearpupuk), as well as Beth (@kidkreativader) from Hero(@Herodesign), and my business partner Chris (@buffalogeek). I'm most active twittering from midday till after work; thursday is my biggest day to twitter.

Stupid Facebook.

01.06.2008 @ 3:06 AM in Lifestream
facebook.jpg I tried to be subtle about this, I didn't even twitter it, yet. Unfortunately, when you start the wonderful process of changing profile statuses to "single," and one of your social means is Facebook, subtlety gets hard. After about a half dozen im's and emails from folk that are facebookers, I'll make it public.
  • Michael  and I are no longer a couple.
I really don't want to hear how Michael was bad for me, or how I'm better off. Truth is, it doesn't really matter. Not being with Michael was something that I had to do for a new year for myself.  This has been that hardest decision for me to make, because instead of something catastrophic to trigger this, I had to realize on my own that we weren't meant to be past a year. I'm just gonna take some time to myself, hang out with friends and focus on me. I'm not going to be dating anyone else from Buffalo for a while, the supply of decent single have long been exhausted and I don't feel like trying to disprove that claim either.

WordPress Tip:Make your permalinks choppable

12.26.2007 @ 3:47 PM in Technology
wordpress.jpg Before I start, Changing your permalink structure on a year old blog is like moving a neighborhood one block over, but vaporizing any trace of the old block. All external links to posts, archived feeds, even cached searches can end up going to your 404 page. You can fix this by setting up a 301 redirection in your htaccess, but you'd have to do this for every post. Thats just ridiculous, and thank god Urban Giraffe made a plugin to help this along. If you ever decide do change your permalinks in Wordpress, use Advanced Permalinks and import your old structure into the migrate tab. This will apply a quick 301 redirection on every old address. That done, now the for the change. One way to make wordpress feel more your own is to create a custom permalink structure.
  • By default the structure is
    /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/
Since Wordpress is one of the top two blog platforms (the other is movabletype) and such few people actually care to change their structure, you see links like this everywhere. This structure isn't actually bad, in fact it's set up to allow backlinking:
  • http://site.com/2007/12/26/post-title/ <- chop off "post-title/" and you get
  • http://site.com/2007/12/26/<- which lets you see all the posts for that day (12-16-2007)...
  • http://site.com/2007/12/ <- month (December 2007),
  • http://site.com/2007/ <- and year (2007).
The downside is that not many people actually think or need to do this if you already offer archival links on your site, and back linking is only good for trying to get into someone's online pr0n or music folder. Additionally, when paired with a lengthy post title, your permalink grows to an obnoxoius size. Sharing a link with a friend on twitter or myspace can force you to use a URL shortening service like tinyURL. It's nice to be be able to post a link without having to mask it, so I decided to change my permalink structure to be self-shortening.
  • New Structure:
    /%post_id%/%postname%/
  • change it by going to Options » Permalinks and entering a new structure in the custom section.
perm.gif
  • if you are using Advanced permalinks, click on "Migration" and enter the old permalink structure to ensure that your old links still work.
Notice I completely tossed out the datestamp in the permalink, and replaced it with %post_id%. Let's see how backlinking affects this permalink.
  • http://site.com/394/post-title/ <-- If you lop off "post-title/"
  • http://site.com/394/<-- you get just the numerical id of the post, which is small enough to post to twitter, and retains my domain.
Now there is a downside to this: your readers most likely will not intuitively deduct that they can do that, or even care for that matter. But you can, and it makes you look a little more custom. If you are at all crafty at chopping up templates, you can display the shortened permalink with this code in your loop.
<a href="<?php bloginfo('url') ?>/<?php the_ID(); ?>">Shortlink</a>

i Haz An Addiction, Let Me showz You It.

12.26.2007 @ 12:45 PM in Lifestream
fullview.jpg I finally ran out of room on my desk to display the vinyl. One could say that that would be a great time to stop buying, but no. That just means you have to bring them out to the main office, knock off the corporate leaflets, and spread em all out on our faux mantle. WNYMedia has never looked so trendy. It all started Friday when Kirk from work was grinding into me (not that kinda grinding... I wish) about how he found out that I already owned the secret santa gift that he had bought for me. he tosses the bag at me and inside is a Christmas Labbit. I explain to him I can never have enough Labbits, and later that day I spend 30 minutes talking with my department trying to defend why I collect vinyl to begin with... I guess a actual crack addiction would make more sense to them. Anyhoo, I'm twittering all this madness to Beth at Hero, and she tells me they have something for me at the store.... I show up and she hands me a box all wrapped in brown paper and ribbon. I doubletake when I notice the name on the card says "Nae Nae." Wait a minute, no one knows that name 'cept my mother. Whaddaya know, said "Mom" on the card too. First off, my mom is a lunatic, completely out of her mind at times, and I love her for it. The free and open disclosure of my baby name to anyone I could do without, but it's too late for that. As I Open the box, Mark explains how she called Hero and explained how she was "Buffawhat's mom," and that she wanted the Cactus Pups set for her son and if they could arrange it. They agreed and inside was the whole set from Tokidoki and StrangeCo, albeit blind boxed. Fortuned smiled and I opened a complete set;  they are so cute, and so tiny. tokidoki1.jpg tokidoki3.jpg tokidoki2.jpg tokidoki4.jpg Well, those 7 filled up my punch card, so I scored a free blind box, and picked up another Pets and Owners Monsterisms.  These guys are heavy and a bit awkward, but they really are fun to look at. monsterism1.jpg Just as I figured I could get out of hero without dropping a dime, Mark plays his trump card. He walks over to the Heatherette toys, and starts talking about how they ordered them on a request and wasn't sure if they'd sell. He points to the cowboy with the gold hat and unicorn stick horse.
  • "Hey look, its like a little Buffawhat action figure, these are right up your alley!"
I try to give him my most indignant look and flailed to defend whatever shreds of heterosexuality I pretend to possess, and I couldn't. The Heatherette's are little club kid figures, modeled after designers Traver Rains, Richie Rich, the fabulous trannystar Amanda Lepore, and others.  I started opening boxes till I filled my next card, and grabbed another Monsterism. The extras I sent to Angel, who kee'd over Lepore. heatherette2.jpg heatherette1.jpg

12.03.2007 @ 11:23 AM in Lifestream
kittehwig.jpg Seriously, WTF? I want. To think that people could ever do such a thing to their pets is the number one reason why cat owners find dead mice and birds on their beds in the mornings. Mr. Bigglesworth saw The Godfather, too; you might want to take a hint. I know Skylar would hate me at first, but he's a bigger queen than his daddy ever could be. Apparently this project is the brainchild of an overzealous a talented and witty cross-stitcher who is so lonely that her only solace is loves dressing her cat Boone up in wigs and taking pictures. And now you can too. For a swift $50 you can get your choice of a Pink Passion, Bashful Blonde, Silver Fox, or Electric Blue wig right sized for your feline companion. The package comes complete with wig on a hair form with hairnet in a custom hat tin. Also included is a mousey rattle to help your cat forget his torture as you subject him to blinding lights all for your focus Mr. Bigglesworth as you prepare him/her for flickr stardom. kittehwig2.jpg
Each Kitty Wig™ comes in an attractive round metal wig case with our fresh new logo on it. Your wig will arrive on a wig form and covered in a hair net to help keep its shape and luster. The package also includes complete instructions for care, suggestions from professional photographers, and a mouse with rattle to help you direct Kitty's stunned gaze. Every kitty loves the promise of a new toy for model behavior. Please remember, Kitty Wigs should only be used with human supervision, and introduced slowly.

Almost nobody enjoyed my little blast to the past with the ASCII theme I've been running for the past month... Some wanted the gay back, all wanted the black gone, and most of ya wondered why the hell I haven't posted much but SNAP!'s lately. WNYMedia.net is re-launched... finally.. got a lot o bugs to work on and content to start posting over on.. but I'm gonna cross post a lot and start to build up the tech cred.. hence the title of the Technological Homosexual.  Its my moniker for WNYM and seems perfect name for my site. I know its all hopes and promises that I'll start posting more, but really I mean it this time. Look, i put some flickr pictures down yonder to the right, my twitter tweets are on the left, recent comments, posts.. not to mention I spent a few good hours hacking up the wonderful (but green) theme created by FarFromFearless.com.  Still got a bit more to do.. but ya get the point. I also have an idea for a new blog thats a bit... well... lets just say its called "Letters to my Gay Sons." My gay sons... you know what it is...

Fine, Fine, I’ll Twitter Too

So, the latest bandwagon is Twitter: the new form of "ZOMG! WHT RU DOIN? ORLY? K THX!" for the web, your phone, or your OSX Dashboard. Twitter is based around tweets, which are short (14o characters max) bits of information relevant to whatever you are doing at the time. You can text or IM your tweets, as well as updating from the Twitter site itself. With the API tools released, Twitter now makes it possible to send a tweet from anything. Enter in your mobile number and Twitter instantly becomes a tag-your-it game of "this is what I'm doing, what are you doing" with sms notification from everone that you are following tweets from. I've dropped a plugin to display my latest tweet on the sidebar under that cute picture of me. Sign up and start following my tweets!
