And We’re Back!

May 10, 2012

All Posts, Editorials

The site was down for about 14 hours. It came back up sometime before 8 p.m. Pacific. I thought it was a site software crash. The server provider thought it was one of his servers.  I was right. He was wrong. I was trying to make the archives all fancy. It wasn’t the ATF. It would be a story if it had been.  Sorry about that.

Thank you to all of those who noticed and know me well enough to point out to me, “Hey! Rebel. You know your site’s fucked up.”

Things should be back to Situation Normal All Fucked Up tomorrow. Thank you for your patience and support. And, yes I know that the Reno police were down in Orange County last week chatting with the green. Thank you for that as well.

    to Rebel and everyone else,
    I’m nixing my idea of sharing e-mail addresses……was kind of a
    knee-jerk reaction to Rebel’s site being down. Upon further thought,
    I think it best we stay as we are. I highly respect several of the regular posters to this site, and think it’s probably best to let this site be the common collective.

    Does anyone recall Miraculous Mutha? (Yeah, I am a Gen X old fartess showing my age.)

    Mwahahahahahahahaaaaaaaa… what other evil deed can I do this day?

    Rebel: You win the Nobel, and and you’ll need mace to keep ’em off of you. Not the starlets, “Nobel huh?”, but the the brainy babes on bikes that don’t yet know about you.

  7. Rebel Says:

    Dear observer,

    Trust me, if I win the Nobel Prize I am going to have a starlet on each arm while I make my acceptance speech. See if you can arrange that for me, okay?


  8. Rebel Says:


    It means somebody liked or hated the post enough to link to it. It is a standard way to measure a site’s popularity.


  9. Rebel Says:

    Dear observer,

    Yeah when I put a link to another site in a story that other site’s webmaster gets a trackback notifying him that I had linked to him. It is a site management thing. I can generate reports that tell me who was referred to this site by Yahoo, or google, or whoever. I don’t usually bother.


  10. Rebel Says:

    Dear Bookworm,

    No the trackbacks just let me know when somebody swell is directing people to my site. I pay attention to site security. All that happen was I was trying to make the archives look pretty. I installed a crappy piece of software to do that with one impossible line of code. The minute I did that all I could see was the error message that that line of code was screwed up. The server service was upgrading their servers at the same time. So there was a little disagreement about whether I screwed up or they did. I did.

    No big thing. You can come here and your system will be safe.

    I’m with stroker. You ever need help i’ll do what I can. My next comment will be with a different email,since the one I use here is shot,and gmail is more convenient. You can use that address anytime.


  12. Bookworm Says:

    I was also wondering about the trackback posts. For some reason I was immediately suspicious of it. especially with all the blank lines and [bars]that are used in the trackback post. Not a big computer guy, so there are many things that are foreign to me.

  13. observer Says:

    AVAGOVFFV: I’ve been wondering about this trackback stuff too. Some site that tracked back (I guess that’s what happened?) to this site even had an explanation of it, but I can’t remember where it is. Anyway, google has the basic gist of it. Here’s some:

  14. AVAGOVFFV Says:

    What’s this shit mean?

    “1 Trackbacks For This Post”

    Viva Los Vagos

  15. AVAGOVFFV Says:


    Welcome back. Glad it wasn’t do to space aliens or the alphabet boys.

    Rebel: “I was right. He was wrong.”
    Faulkner: “I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail.”
    “I decline to accept the end of man.”

    I think Faulkner speaks more in generalities: Man will make it somehow.
    Rebel comes from some place more specific: He (Rebel) is going to make it. In the practical everyday for all of us, I feel Rebel’s is the more useful perspective.

    Faulkner’s Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech:

    Rebel will probably pull a Brando and send some hottie to decline for him.

    @ Junior; if you do online banking – and it’s been a while – but I think Paypal works this way too – all you need to send your friendship dues to Rebel is… his email.

    I used [email protected]

    He doesn’t have to set anything up or give you any info at all – you send it -then he gets to do a little funky chicken finger dance on the keyboard to recieve it.

    Sled Tramp,

    That link scared the shit out of me when I clicked on it from whoever-that-was’s ecommerce page. What ICE has to do with somebody bootlegging SOA stuff is beyond me (unless it was Made in China or something). I would have assumed USPTO.

  19. Stroker Says:

    Like everyone else, I feared the worse too. Glad it was nuthin’
    too awful bad. If the 4am “wake-up call” ever happens (perish the thought), you know you can contact anyone of us for help. You have my contact info, and I’m sure you have others. If there’s anything your faithful fellow low-life scumbag bikers can do, let us know.
    and, in the interest of maybe a “Rebel Support Crew”, you have my permission to share my e-mail address with the names I’ll send you
    via e-mail.

  20. sled tramp Says:

    Clicked on the link.Bad,bad things came up……

  21. Junior Says:

    Rebel: I sure enjoy your site and would hate to see it disappear. You got a paypal account yet?


  22. Rebel Says:

    Dear Phuquehed,

    You’re right. I didn’t want to embarrass you but you are right. It was all because of you.


  23. YYZ Skinhead Says:


    You mean like this site that was selling bootleg Sons of Anarchy gear?

  24. swampy Says:

    Damn, you mean I made that tinfoil helmet all for nothing! Glad you’re back, Rebel. Keep up the great work. With the highest regards and respect,

  25. ruffrider Says:

    I got a little worried.



  26. rollinnorth Says:

    Tsk, tsk, that “threat” was not supposed to be “leaked” for press releases until next week! lol

  27. rollinnorth Says:

    Glad you’re back up, Rebel. Sometimes you don’t miss something ’til it’s gone. For awhile there, I was jonesin’.

  28. Uesque Says:

    No, when the gov’t. seizes a website, they put up a big DHS image to try to scare you. Because knock off Chinese hockey jerseys are a huge threat to homeland security.

  29. Caretaker Says:

    Was wondering what happened… Thought it was my screw up,as it happened just as I got done clearing up memory. (i’m computer retarded) Thought I erased a wrong file or something… Glad you’re back.


  30. Phuquehed Says:

    Yeah, I was sure it was my fault for rantin’ and ravin’ and tellin’ everyone to arm themselves and gear up and get ready, lol. I figured that shit-stain, fatass stupid cunt comrade leader of the DHS Napolitano was gettin’ pissy with the site ’cause of me.

  31. Gringo Says:

    Yeah my first thought was the glorious fuck nuts in blue , the taserfied pussys of the planet , the cock sucking two balled bitches of the world had shut this fine establishment down.. Thankfully they have not

  32. WV Fritz Says:

    Glad to see you are still here!

  33. IrishDragon Says:


    Holy shit man! I thought “they” had shut you down. Glad ur still here. Like I said before if that shit does happen im more then willing to pay for the snail mail version. Keep up the great work.
