torture, rape and dying might be bad, but we all know what would be worse...,

something to read while you calm down...,
1&1 is teh sux:
after three weeks of being successively dicked around and then tea bagged by my very lame domain registrar 1and1.com, I have finally been given it back. They have a very peculiar bureaucratic policy in which every four business days they tell you your domain will be restored in 1-3 business days. Last Friday they finally told me that they would never give it back ("Why not?" I asked. "We don't know" they replied, knowingly) and early the next business day it was back in my name.
We now have a 10 year contract out on flagrancy.org (1and1 refuses to offer multi-year contracts, insisting on this annual auto-renewal process) and expect further .net downtime in 60 days when we try to transfer flagrancy.net to anybody else.
update: Vague Idea Property squatting zombie squirrels operate on 1-3 day business schedules, rest assured it will rise again to dessicate past and future vague ideas. I don't remember what I meant by 'flagrancy to reason' any longer. Such is bullocks.
Now where was I... Moving between jobs and apartments? Eating manwich? Is a sandwich just a sandwich? Reading some awful book about the AK-47? Oh yeah. Did I write all this stuff? Oh dear. What a lot of... What the hell is that? No, not that, that, that's been fixed. I forget my object in life. I bet I have a nice bag of pretzels someplace.

Ahh, I missed you also, thanks. Now I must stomach the intestinal fortitude to spill squirrel entrails upon the elbow blood soaked concrete of the intertubes. All I ever asked for was my own little bit of Nowhere, AK to build a bridge to, earmarking legacy costs at no additional expense to the taxpayer, by beaver or be damned.
