Blog issues fixed and design upgrade

As with every other blog in the world, sometimes you need to upgrade, with the recent hacking of my site by unknown people who put the viruses directly in certain posts- I had to upgrade my security and theme. I have always wanted the theme you see now- I think its easier to navigate, and although I know many of you will complain, I think most of you will be the silent majority of people who want good content and could care less if the there are two or three columns.

Why the change?

I like the three column design because instead of scrolling to eternity to find the blogroll- you can find it towards the top on the left hand side. Recent posts and comments are still on the right, just higher up and more accessible then before.

I now have a contact page on the top of the site and sooner or later I will tweak everything else.

The CPU data issues are also being dealt with and hopefully we can kiss those goodbye by the end of the week.

You will notice that all my categories were lost and therefore navigation through the site will be best if done through the archives page, Best of section or search bar.

Other News

I got a new job today and although I would rather keep what I am doing out of the public view, I am happy with the position and very happy with the pay. I do thank you all that forwarded me links and followed up on different possibilities.

    Who cares what it looks like? I need my frumsatire fix!
    Also, Mazel Tov on the new job. If you need anywhere to put that Maaser money, well, you know who to email…

    This reminds me of the old Jewish joke:
    Rothschild tells the beggar in front of him that if he can come up with a truly spontaneous lie, then he’ll give him a ruble. Without batting an eyelash, the beggar said, “One ruble? You just said two!”

  • TRS July 29, 2008, 1:20 AM

    Um, where did that comment just go, Hesh? Without it, my second one is worthless!

  • TRS July 29, 2008, 1:21 AM

    Still it something to have the first three comments.

  • s(b.) July 29, 2008, 5:33 AM

    Way to score a new job fast — I guess the adult entertainment industry has more openings than I thought! (no pun) (well, it’s not like you’re writing for kids …)

  • abandoning eden July 29, 2008, 7:06 AM

    why aren’t I on your blogroll anymore? 🙁

  • abandoning eden July 29, 2008, 7:07 AM

    oh wait i am but under everything else?

  • BiggestFish July 29, 2008, 7:27 AM

    I need those categories! Like “Food is edible pornography” and “Girls”!!!
    I am wondering how you found your job (you don’t have to say what job you got), It would be good for me to know how to do a successful job search.

  • Homeschool Mom July 29, 2008, 8:32 AM

    Glad to hear you got a new job so quickly!

  • s(b.) July 29, 2008, 8:58 AM

    you get your own exclusive blogroll.

  • Chavi July 29, 2008, 9:16 AM

    My only beef? It’d be nice if there was some way that the center column was set off from everything else, so the blog portion stood out and didn’t appear to blend in to all the other text, you know? That’s just me and my tendency to get way too distracted by lots of stuff all in one big jumbly space.

    But WHOO for jobs and getting rid of the security threat … though … I still get the angry red page that says you’re bad. In time, in time.

  • jk July 29, 2008, 9:53 AM

    So did anyone who looked at that page yesterday get a virus? Some info would be really nice. I know I clicked on it and would like to clean up my computer and I’m sure others feel the same way.

  • frumhouse July 29, 2008, 10:37 AM

    Congrats on the new job! Very nice layout.

  • Left Brooklyn and never looked back July 29, 2008, 10:40 AM


  • heimish in bp July 29, 2008, 11:19 AM

    Nice layout. Mazel Tov on your job. Is it still in Monsey? do you ahve to travel?

    Also, whats the deal, are we going to have a Frumsatire picnic this summer?

  • s(b.) July 29, 2008, 12:03 PM

    it’s going to be pot luck. bring your own hashgacha. 🙂

  • Batya July 29, 2008, 1:23 PM

    I love this clean look. Very easy to read, even for an alte kocke jblogger like me.

  • chanief July 29, 2008, 1:32 PM

    Congrats on the job and the new look. I seem to have missed the hack job, was it at least as entertaining as the porn hacking? 😉

    s(b) LOL at both the adult entertainment comment and “bring your own hashgacha.” Funny!

  • Seth Avram Weinstein July 29, 2008, 2:33 PM

    Mazel Tov on the job!!!!! I was in a similar situation last month but mine was more along the lines of my corporation was bought out and where did that leave a computer geek. Thankfully I was hired by the new owners.

    Not that I recomend doing this but if everyone is still getting the blocked notification and you use firefox there is a setting that can disable that. If you use Windows I don’t advide doing it but if you are among those who use Mac or Linux like I do then I wouldn’t worry about doing that. Just my 2 sheckels worth.

  • Left Brooklyn and never looked back July 29, 2008, 3:35 PM

    s(b.) cut it out!!

  • s(b.) July 29, 2008, 3:54 PM

    ut-oh. um, should I be apologizing? I was joking. Would you like a piece of fresh fruit? (sorry.) (I actually have tons of respect for all of this stuff; if you ever meet me, maybe you’ll understand that.) Or were you laughing too hard?

  • Frum Satire July 29, 2008, 4:20 PM

    Some of you may notice two things- one if you type my site into google it says may harm your computer and two certian versions of firefox block my site.

    This is because it takes several days for google to index my site as healthy and my job to verify it.

    You will also notice I cannot respond to comments nor post too much and that is because I am on the road and not going to be sitting at a desk job anymore.

  • Left Brooklyn and never looked back July 29, 2008, 4:24 PM

    Traveling by bicycle I hope 😉

    Since you will be out of an office environment you should consider buying a wide mouth Thermos (made for soup) so you can keep your chulent warm.


  • heimish in bp July 29, 2008, 4:27 PM

    Hesh can you please post my comment I sent via email, and thanks.

    Also depending on you cell phone service, I can hook you up with wireless on your current acount for a couple of bucks a month.

  • s(b.) July 29, 2008, 4:45 PM

    sounds like a sweet gig, man. 🙂

  • suitepotato July 29, 2008, 4:54 PM

    Congratulations and good luck with the new job and the securing of the site. Let’s hope you’re still able to blog regularly.

  • Frum Satire July 29, 2008, 5:18 PM

    Hiemishe all comments are posted- they went to spam- just email me whenever it happens- but I may not be near a computer.

    I am going to blog pretty regularly dont worry- I just may get behind on comments and emails.

  • SUPERFRUM July 29, 2008, 6:56 PM

    Its such a relief not to listen to the reminders that a trojan has been blocked over and over again.

  • Hope Less July 29, 2008, 6:57 PM

    I’ll bring the potato chips.

  • Mikeinmidwood July 29, 2008, 8:53 PM

    Like the new format, easy to navigate.

  • lechmipo July 30, 2008, 2:28 AM

    your blog is awsome no matter the format…

  • BiggestFish July 30, 2008, 3:27 AM

    Liked the old format better. I like the color theme, and I have my PC set at 800×600 resolution, so I cannot display three columns very well.

  • Chris_B July 30, 2008, 4:22 AM


    FWIW your favicon.ico seems to have changed.

    Congrats on the new job. Being unemployed is something I never want to do again.
