UPDATE: I am leaving this article up because of the comments that have been left on it and because it’s honestly where I was at the time and I’m sure many of you feel or have felt the same.

But, that said, please read this morning’s article 11 Short Hours  thanks to you guys I’m in a much better place.

And please, I am fine at this point. Your contributions and moral support have been tremendously helpful.  No more donations are needed at this point. Thank you all so much.

Seven Short Years

by Scott Creighton

Seven years ago on June 24th, 2007, I sat down and tried my best to figure out how a WordPress website worked.

My vanity, born of poverty, “conspiracy theory” and the necessity of a broken timing belt, has been swept away in a tearful fit of pathetic middle-aged passionless rage/pathos. In it’s place, a resolute determination to finally finish stage one of the Great Timing Belt Fiasco of 2014 – the timing belt. (see part 1 here)

Pic 1 – Neglected and alone, Eclipseus resolves to finish the job sans skilled hands and experienced mentors. His hobbled steed still lies crippled in the grass, a sad testimonial to a life once filled with all the thrilling promise 98 horse-power brings to man.
