Oh. Well. That Was Embarassing.

Running Silent

Coming up on the last week of school and am struggling to pass a kanji class and finish an unrelated research paper. Blogging will remain light for a week or so after which the long dry spell will end.

In the meantime here is a Canadian's take on everyone's favorite frog girl and gravititrix.

MHA's 'Froppy' and 'Urabity' as drawn by Canada's gift to the eyes, Sakimichan, who can also be found on ArtStation and Patreon and whose non-shrinkified stuff can also be bought here.

Testing the Blog's New Bitchute and You-Tube Embeds



For others who blog on mee.nu, the how to-post on this is here.

Pixy has a You-Tube embed as well. It's of fading utility as most of the cool, interesting people are getting banned.

However, most is not all...



...so it's still a useful tool.

Status Update

It appears that our posts are being lost between chair and keyboard and we have decided that this is due to tachyon interference from transmissions emitted by the Dero from far beneath the Earth's crust in an attempt  to break the tyrannical hold on their third and fourth chakras that is being exercised by the Shapeshifting Reptoids from Draco who have taken refuge with the Antarctic Space Nazis in the hollow Earth after having to abandon their forward operating base in Cydonia after the Greys razed it with ortillery to prevent the Reptoid's and Nazi's joint (and evil) plan for global domination from interfering with the Greys' seedy and completely illicit fetish tourism and surprisingly lucrative manipulation of local (Terran) cattle futures. 

It is possible that the situation may be more or less complicated than that, but further investigation is needed and in any event things are hectic here, so we've decided to conclude this second rambling run-on-sentence with a picture of Grea who is a shining example of the societal virtues facilitated by hybrid vigor (and who has probably appeared in more TV series than any other half-dragonette).

Oh Wow. Look at All the Positive Feedback I'm Getti.....Oh.

Greetings gentle reader, we are working diligently to keep our comments free of salt, water, modified potato starch, sugar, sodium nitrite, pork and.......ham.
So, as I run down the ingredients on a can of SPAM,
I note the ingredients list both pork AND ham.
The world is all muddled,
and I am befuddled
so I'll just throw up my hands and scream "Damn!"

While I contemplate this conundrum, here is a period panorama by Pochi.


Pochi's blog is here and you can purchase Pochi pictures here.

Test Post

Testing to see how the blog functions in the New Moon browser, which is the Mac version of Pale Moon.



First lets post an image; something inoffensive like like a modern take on Red Riding H...uuhhh?


Tsana by Lansane. Support him on his Pixiv Fanbox page.

Oh fabrijous day! Minx's superscripts and subscripts work in New Moon. (They don't in Epic, Safari or Opera. At least not on my Mac. And Vivaldi's got...issues.)

Lets see. How about videos? That ought not to be an issue, but it is with Vivaldi. Let's go with something that's stripped of enough context to be SFW and forgotten enough that it doesn't incriminate me in any way.


Oh crap! The website is still there.

日本語で動作しますか。
はい。

Will it actually type π now?
Yes!

How about formatting quotes and running animated .gifs? Let's try a reaction shot.

I’m not going to discuss the relative merits of astrology, but I’m going to say when an entire civilization formed on the enlightenment principles chases after it, things have gone seriously wrong.



Sweet. But does it support animated .PNGs?


Art by Kaku Choushi

Yes. It hasn't been Minx, it's been my browsers.

Though, upon reflection, we probably could have done without the booger bubble.

Now lets see if it supports automatic content generation.












Well. Dang.

Hiatus (Bumped)

 Between my final (as in no more!) term papers and the holiday rush at work I'm going to be scarce for a bit. As compensation I'll leave you with something that ought to be completely non-controversial.

Apropos of NOTHING

That is our story. We are sticking to it.

If one is in an online forum and something involving an issue that is on the borderline of the established rules requires a decision from a moderator, a call by the moderator that is against one's liking does not make the moderator a marxist. It means they are moderating...that is their job. They don't get paid. And on a large forum they are having to make a LOT of calls and do a lot of work as well as tend to their own lives so if one is told to stop pushing the envelope (which will then entice a whole bunch of edgelord shitposters to shitpost on the edge and make the mod's life even harder) then one should probably not go all derp-chan & call them a Marxist. A Marxist is every bit as bad as a Nazi and we ought not to throw these words around higgly piggly. Yes. I know. Some people do. A majority of them are Marxists. They're also dicks. Don't be a dick. I have confidence that one is better than that.

Notice to Readers

This blog is a test, an experimental transmission from a secret facility.



Far beneath the guano mines of Niue.

When Mee.nu first started up, a number of tech savvy individuals were given blogs to run as alpha and beta tests. When that was successful there was one more step before going live. Another beta test...with someone who was NOT tech savvy. That's where I, the paragon of PEBKAC, came to be a beta tester and one of the earliest bloggers at Mee.nu. Now I understand basics of information technology of course, but I have no formal certifications in the care and maintenance of electro-pneumatic tubes,  the complex interactions between isolinear silicon fibers and ley-lines, how such phenomena affect the transmigration of data between Samsara and "The Cloud" or  the ultimate cathexsis of these discrete packets of id on a hard drive. 

Therefore, it was decided that mine was the perfect blog to run the final beta on.

To this day Brickmuppet Blog is still a test blog as per our agreement, and experiments of various natures are still conducted here preceding any upgrades to the Mee.nu community. 


Like spammer mitigation.

Be advised that there may be some disruptions of the blog over the weekend.

Probably by sea monsters.

UPDATE: Well, it appears that the epic formatting issue in the previous post has been fixed and that sea monsters were not responsible in any way. We apologize for the hurtful, unwarranted and irresponsible speculation.

The Killer App of Mu.Nu

I started to mention this in a previous post, but it deserves to be above the fold. 


A bit over 10 years ago, after 1021 posts on Blogger, I was about to throw in the towel. Google had bought BlogSpot shortly after I started blogging in 2003, but this was of no concern until early '07 when 2 things happened. There were some system crashes and issues with the image posting system. More importantly The Netroots types began a campaign to file complaints with Google/Blogger about "offensive content" in blogs whose opinions they found uncongenial and report others as spam blogs. Blogger/Google was only too happy to oblige.  As a result of that, numerous blogs whose opinions vexed the Netroots were threatened, locked pending review, or just vanished. There had been a similar purge of right leaning You Tube Channels that had happened a bit earlier, (remember when Hot Air was mainly a companion site to their You Tube channel?). That censorious annoyance had been similarly instigated by complaints from the Netroots. 

Brickmuppet Blog was protected from this mainly by my lack of talent which placed me near the bottom of the blogosphereic ecosystem and the fact that it's not really a political blog. Still, I did actually get one vague threat from a reader to have me taken down...because I guess getting a Z-list blogger with 6 readers to shut up is a real power trip.  Between that and the short lived technical glitches, I was about to throw in the towel. I had been made very aware of how ephemeral any work consisting entirely of electrical zeroes and ones actually is.     

However,  I inquired about different hosting services and took the advice of Wonderduck and the late Steven Den Beste, and signed up here in Mee.nu as a Beta tester (my utter lack of IT skills being a feature and not a bug in that capacity). Although the very first comment on this blog was a thinly veiled threat, I've been very happy here. 

Since then I've come to appreciate even more the absolute importance of the fact that Pixy Misa (the owner, proprietor of  Mee.nu) is completely dedicated to free speech. Unless they are spammers, child pornographers or malware-bots, he and his crackerjack team of pixel elves aren't going to screw with any of the 65,000 odd websites hosted here. 

Additionally, unlike some other platforms, Mee.nu doesn't have a truth and safety council, doesn't shadowban users, and allows one to type as many characters as one needs to get out a coherent thought (actual level of coherence is the typists responsibility).

Furthermore, unlike some services  Mee.nu doesn't integrate seamlessly into every aspect of one's online existence. That may, at first, seem like a bug, but in an age of weaponized empathy...it is not. The other day I noted noted an online poll that concerned a politically charged topic. It required one to log in via a service we won't name (but it rhymes with SpaceCrook). This of course means that everyone in one's feed knows how one voted, and sets off all manner of flags. Rejoice Mr. Parsons! The telescreen has arrived! 

But not here in Mee.nu.




Operating from a vast underground bunker hidden somewhere in the guano mines of Niue, Pixy Misa interacts with the world mainly through a surprisingly lifelike teleoperated animatronic in Sydney. Pixy oversees several servers scattered across the globe in places that are not North Korea, China or The Platt River Networks men's room.

A Test of Testable Things

Well there's been....TALK.


I walked into the cafeteria the other day and noted that all the cool kids were talking, presumably about cool things, so I walked over to say hi, but before i did I realized that they were actually venting about some dork...and then I realized, it was probably me so I hid behind the soda machine before they saw me and then skipped lunch and then I ran home and cut myself checked the blog in Epic, Opera, Vivaldi, Safari, Midori and Chrome and didn't see a problem but realized that the complaint was about IE...which I don't use because it tries to upgrade my Windows 7 into Windows 10...so I just gave up because the day was terrible since I'd already gotten a "D" in English because of something called a "run-on-sentence". 

Ahem...

I noted that my page was set at 25 posts per page, I've cut it down to 5. As a stress test,  since two other posts have embedded videos in lieu of content, I'll put this animated .gif  of a girl passionately explaining why duodecimal is just better.



Let me know if cutting the the page count addressed the issues.
