So I’m currently suffering the aftermath of one of the two worst database crashes in my job’s history, so things’ve been rough for me the last few days, but I’m taking a short break now.

Someone just told me that there’s an Alien Loves Predator fan group on Facebook that’s got a bunch of members in it already. Just in case any of you Facebookers wanted to join – it’s not like I know what the hell goes on in these groups. Maybe you can be the one to make it awesome! Go on, join the cult (only accessible to Facebook members).

Incidentally, I succumbed to peer pressure and just got a Facebook page of my own. It gives me yet another way I can easily keep in touch with my friends yet fail to follow through. People used to write LETTERS, you know. And use HORSES, or CARRIER PIGEONS, or some other fictional animals to deliver their correspondence. Yet I can’t be bothered to click on my mom’s name and e-mail her that I love her, because that would take my focus away from the YouTube video of real-life Donkey Kong I’m watching.

I’m keeping my Facebook friends list to be only people I actually know, so fair warning: don’t bother sending me a request unless we’ve at least talked before (and I like you). Feel extremely free to friend me on MySpace though – over there I’d like to eventually reach 7 figures.

Exception: Send me a photo of you wearing an official aLp t-shirt and I will TOTALLY Facebook-friend you.

    Facebook, Myspace, Beebo, MSN…. when will it all end? I find having an account on a million forums is a serious drain on my time, and being so thinly spread means I cant devote all my energy into something like I want to. As for a data-base crash, man that sucks for you Bernie- how are you going to recover all that porn (just kidding)?….

    I didn’t fully read the article before sending you a facebook add… sorry about that!

    I had a database go to crap on me about 2 weeks ago. I’m the webmaster for a college and our site is run on Joomla(an open source CMS using php/mysql). Anyways, All of my users went corrupt and there was no way of accessing the database so the site was down for a few hours until we (mostly our linux guru) got it pieced back together… so I feel your pain!

    I think these web 2.0 sites are really crazy.
