Register.com is giving away free domain names

Thursday, August 7, 2008

Want a free domain name for a year?  Head over to the link below.  Register.com is apparently giving away free domain registrations for the first year.   Domains are only around $7-9/yr anyway, but if you want to save a few bucks..

I don’t think it’s required to stay with them after a year, but I haven’t looked into it either.

“For a limited time, you can register a new domain name for your small business

and get it FREE for the first year with no further obligation (a $35 value).”

Register.com, Inc..

Sh17y Maintenance VII

Monday, July 7, 2008

I haven’t posted a maintenance update since December it looks like. I don’t know what all I’ve changed before today, but here is what I did today:

  • Updated Akismet to 2.1.6
    • Akismet’s blocked over 5,500 spam comments and counting.
  • Updated Google’s Sitemap Generator to
  • Updated Simple Tags to 1.5.6
  • Deleted several spam user accounts.  I have no idea why they keep getting created so often, they aren’t leaving comments or spam anywhere.
  • Added Feedburner site tracking code into posts
  • Removed the feedburner redirection link from the titles in the rss feed
  • Changed the feedburner location to http://feeds.thesh17.com/TheSh17
  • Our #1 referring search term is “bioshock
  • Fixed a few bugs with the website loading

TheSh17 dot com and Zombiebait are both in need of some work.  Anyone willing to help out?  Send an email to johntash [at] gmail.com or leave a comment here.

2012: Doomsday? Or just the end of the internet

Save The Internet!

Remember the 40,000 blowjobs from belgiumpost from a while back?  The same group of people behind that political stunt has been pretty active on the internet lately trying to save net neutrality lately.  Apparently they have some insider information from a few top ISPs confirming their plans for a tiered internet system.

If you haven’t heard anything about net neutrality;  THIS IS BAD.   As they correctly put, it would basically lead to the end of the internet.  It would change your internet subscription to something like the way you pay for television.  You’d buy the basic package and have access to wikipedia, yahoo, msn, nbc, abc, disney, etc or you could go for a bigger/more expensive package which includes google, youtube, myspace, facebook, etc.  (These aren’t official listings, just examples.)

Why is this bad? For one, it gives ISPs too much control over what you can and can’t view.  There are many people out there who make a living off of their websites.  Unfortunately these people will probably have to go get a new job since the traffic to their websites would drastically drop(unless they can afford to pay ISPs to include their website in one of the cheap tiers.)

MMORPGs or any multi-player games? You’d have to purchase a higher tier package to connect to these custom servers and you’d see a drop in players/competition because not everyone will want to pay this much.

PORN? Porn would probably be in a tier all to itself and probably wouldn’t be heavily advertised.  You’re pretty well fucked if you only use the internet for porn.

3 Things You Cant LIve Without

Thursday, May 29, 2008

So, JT thinks its cool not to post anything and make us look like a bunch of slackers, but im here to fix that.

Three things you cant live without

Number 1: Are you sick and tired of the stock windows bar? that strange blue and the even stranger green start tab? Well your in luck. Some time ago Microsoft released the Zune windows theme. Now i know that there are a million different themes out there. but this one looks pretty cool i might say. It sports a bright orange start bar with a charcoal black application tray. Along with that all of your applications now have a somewhat glossy black bar instead of the ugly….wait…what color was it? I guess ive had this theme for so long i forgot. Anyway, give it a try, it darkens up your desktop and looks snazzy! Click this link to go right to the download.

Number 2: *Double click WMP or Itunes* * wait 45 minuets for your 500gigs of music to load* we’ve all experienced it. Boggy media players that load every song…and take 5 minutes to do so. Well here be the solution to YE woes. MediaMonkey is a taste little chuck of free ware to manage ALL of your media needs. Its a media player, video, picture viewer, and on top of that it keeps all your podcasts subscriptions in line. But thats not the best part, MediaMonkey wont lag at all on start up unless you have 50,000+ songs. Now i don’t know about you but i have 34gigs of music, and thats only 6,000 songs. So if you’ve got enough music to bog this down them you’ve got to much music. Additional features include: downloadable skins * there are hundreds* and streaming throughout your network. Go check it out, it makes life dandy. MediaMonkey

Number 3: Do you play WoW? CSS? BF24300? Or any other game that you want to take a screen shot of? Or do you just like to take screen shots? Well as most of us do/have done, you press print screen, open MS-Paint and paste it, save it, and send the 3meg image to your friend. Takes forever eh? Well a few weeks ago i stumbled upon some even tastier free ware called Gadwin Screen Printer. You simply press print screen and gadwin takes care of the rest. it has simple options to save and the likes, easy to operate, and comes in handy if your soloing a 40 man instance and want to take pictures:D. Check it out HERE.

Number 4: I said 3 in the tittle? Oh…well I’m a liar. And this ones not near as long as the rest…Anyway! Our very own Bentun Stull recently started up a web comic that resembles Ctr-Alt-Del everyones favorite web comic right?…right? Guess not. Anyway, you should all swing over to his site www.eagleonefoxtwo.com the comics aren’t half bad and i’m sure he would like the support.

Additionally, here is a picture of a panda eating a small child. Or Bamboo, what ever you think.

And here we have what seems to be JT and Shanes last case of Crabs.

Until someone else derides to post. This has been a good waister of an hour of my time. Over and out..

Upgraded WordPress. Broke my theme.

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

I upgraded WordPress to version 2.5.1 and it broke my main theme for The Sh17 dot com.   It’s only the main index page that’s broken.. All single post pages and other list pages seem to work fine..  I’m trying to figure out what exactly is wrong, but I’ll probably just finish up fixing the original theme and re-implement it.

Problems with the old design in Internet Explorer

IE Hates TheSh17

I’ve been working on The Sh17’s server for the last few hours, and decided I’d try to get our old design working again.  I’ve ironed out most of the bugs that were keeping it from working at all with wordpress.  Now the main problem IE hates me.  Everything looks fine in Firefox, but IE displays the header wrong.

I haven’t gotten around to fixing it just yet but I’m trying to decide which design I like better.

The Original TheSh17 theme?


The pre-made theme that we’re currently using?

More than likely I’ll end up making the original design prettier to match up to the new one, or try to incorporate the logo into the current design.

You can help stop Uwe Boll!

Friday, April 11, 2008

I was browsing the CAD forums today and saw this thread about a petition to stop Uwe Boll from making more movies.

First off, the link to the petition is :


I signed it and was #182523.   Supposedly if this reaches 1 million signatures, Uwe Boll will stop making movies.  If you don’t know who he is.  Check out his imdb profile.  I personally don’t think his movies are complete crap, but I do agree that he usually has almost no understanding of the games he tries to turn into movies.  Postal looks pretty damn funny, but I don’t know if it’ll be another let-down or not.

Anyway. Go sign the petition!  Only 817,477 signatures are still needed!
