EGI may be too big or too silly for the main site, so I’ve cordoned it off here at egi.fakeologist.com….
Have at it.
Testing the new player – I think I’ve got the archives for Rollo’s audios set up properly. I’ll do the same for audiochats shortly.

In my continuing effort to spread fakeology, I’d like to introduce some old technology: email listservs.
Join by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org….
Your email address will not be shown to anyone else but me.
Send fakeologist type emails to the server, and it will be published to all on the server and I’ll grab any good content for here.
Also, I’m going to cut disqus for a while and go back to our own native comments. I’ll add an option to leave a comment (held for moderation) if you’re not registered here.
Two site related updates:
I am auditioning disqus.com… for comments, in an effort to help with the way comments work here and also allow outsiders to have their say. It allows voting of comments as well and is widely used around the internet – and is not facebook (yet)!
Forums.fakeologist.com… will still need a fakeologist login, but disqus has their own login. Once I recognize you, I’ll whitelist you so your comments won’t have to wait to be approved.
Sadly, this means many logins for the site. I appreciate if you could use a username that is similar in forums, chat, and comments if possible.
I am experimenting with bitcoin. I don’t know much about it, but am trying to find an anonymous tipping system that has some sticking power on the internet. Previous site tiptheweb.com… seems to have stopped working.
Scroll down on the right side of this page to find my bitcoin address and a chrome plugin to send and detect sites with bitcoin addresses.

I’d appreciate if someone could try and send a micropayment to see if it works. Email me at email@example.com… and let me know if you try. I’m doing this because I have always believed in micropayments for websites but so far no-one has figured out how to do it easily. This should be the future of media – micropaying for good content.
A price of a cup of coffee or donut for a weeks worth of work is reasonable and may help ensure content you like continues.
