Why does Google hate me?

Did you know that Google has an employee who's full-time job it is to come up with new ways to make my life more difficult?

OK - maybe not literally, but it sure feels like that some times. The newest problem - and it's a big one - is that Google has announced that they will no longer allow the blogs they host (like this one) to include sexually explicit visual material.

So - I'm trying to figure out how to deal with that. The Jacks can't afford to pay a lot of money to a hosting company for high-bandwidth things like video, and, really, it's just a pain in the ass to find the time to move over to a new blog host, whoever that might be.

But I know how much you guys enjoy the blog, and I enjoy doing it, so I'm working on it.

Hopefully the transition will be seamless, but - if we disappear for a day or two - know that I'm busy pulling it back together and we'll be back.

On general principle - even without this upcoming move - I always suggest downloading/grabbing any videos or pictures off of the blog that you just can't live without so you can keep personal copies for yourself.

If you don't know how to do this with videos, this article is pretty comprehensive (though only for Windows) and, for the blog, all you really need to know is method #1.
This is complicated by another Google screw-up that I've posted about recently where some of us are having problem viewing the videos, and all I can suggest there is trying a different browser.

So, stay tuned and keep strokin', men - I know you're all out there pulling for us.

That new policy has been rescinded. Thank goodness for that. Save the group the money and use it for something better - like bottles of lube for a meeting!
