Going to be watching the superbowl online at www.nfl.com/superbowl/46/live/sunday and chatting about it in the MCS chatroom, either making fun of the manboys on the field or loling at the commercials.
One of the cooler parts of streaming it online is that you get to choose from 5 different views, one of which is on an airplane circling the stadium.

You now have the ability to add any post to your own “favorite” list. You can find a link to your favorite posts right next to your gravatar in the sidebar. Unwashed masses will not be able to favorite things, sorry, you’ll need to log in. Everyone will be able to see the “top 10 favorited” posts in the sidebar though, I’m interested in seeing what shows up there.
Also, remember that MCS Live is fully functional, I see no reason to cache the output, it didn’t affect server performance at all.Affiliate Program, Site News on February 2nd, 2012 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Since I am now gainfully unemployed, I’ve been going through some of my old web properties that haven’t gotten much love since….crap, last post on www.internet-fight.com was in 2010, so it’s been long overdue to make sure the site is working properly, gets new content, and starts to pull it’s own weight. So I ask of you: WHY.
Internet-Fight Polls should be new every morning, so feel free to stop on by and vote on whatever it is we’re talking about over there…you might even have an account there if you’ve been around long enough!Site News on February 2nd, 2012 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
New Site Feature: MCS LIVE : where you can see what other people are seeing, after they’ve seen it!
it may effect site performance, so I’ll let it run for a while and see how it does, if it does break stuff, I’ll see if I can’t cache it.Site News on February 2nd, 2012 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites

I need some volunteers to help with a new image site, just upload a couple images to www.imgderp.com or add a youtube video, or even add a blog post of your own, I’m trying to stress test it to see what can be done. right now I can’t really figure out how to format the blog stuff on the front page, and I need content to figure it out.
right now the ‘most recent’ thing on the front page is acting wonky and I need your help to figure out why.
so please, just upload some derpy images on www.imgderp.com or make a derp blog.
Interesting point of interest, had a great day for traffic yesterday, over 70,000 pageviews! if you guys keep it up, I just might not have to live in a paper box…
edit: two people have taken me up on my test. I greatly appreciated that, but i need more people to take the test.Site News on January 29th, 2012 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Hey, did you guys know that MCS is on facebooks? it’s truth!
also, stand by for pony related news.
EDIT: There seems to be some confusion as to how the site operates:
1 – people upload stuff
2 – moderator looks at it
3 – moderator approves or denies post
4 – MCS CODE GHOST automatically schedules the posts, which MCS+ members can then view and comment on.
5 – eventually, the unwashed masses get access to the post as well.
so, those pony posts were posted to the post queue a couple weeks ago. long before I lost my jorb.Site News on January 28th, 2012 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Hey, did you guys know that MCS is on facebooks? it’s truth!
and like MCS. it will help a lot. as of this post, there are 474 “likes”. I would like to have over a thousand by the end of the weekend. that would be swell!
Please note that after you “like” MCS on facebook, all the posts will show up in your feed. this might be a good thing, or it might be a bad thing. If it’s a bad thing for you, just “ignore” the stuff from MCS.Site News on January 27th, 2012 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Yesterday, I lost my day job. I was fired for some rather dubious reasons, but it boiled down to the fact that someone on the board of directors didn’t like the fact that I had a job, so they lobbied to correct that situation, and thus I find myself wondering how I’m going to make my next mortgage payment, or how I’m going to buy my next beer (answer, no beer until I’m back in the work force).
That being said, now that I’m temporarily unemployed, I’m going to devote much more time to the various websites that I have created and just let coast, including www.internet-d.com www.movieties.com and www.myconfinedspace.com My first task to to create a new “landing page” for mcs. This also means TIMELY posts on internet-d and movieties, so please feel free to visit those sites.
Another thing this means? I’m going to be in the MCS chatroom MUCH more, and I’m going to need people to talk to, so feel free to swing on by. This is going to be a full time gig for a while, so starting 8:30am EST untilSite News on January 13th, 2012 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites

My first domain that I ever registered was www.comiccovers.com. I can’t remember who I registered it through initially, but I do remember it cost me something like $40 to register and set up. Eventually I found GoDaddy, liked their $10 domain price, and started buying up domains like a bitter beast that could only be satiated by new and exciting urls.
GoDaddy’s prices were great, but the name is unprofessional sounding, their management system is a headache, and it’s hard to suggest them to clients when I know that the guy that owns the company is a complete douche nozzle. That being said though, I have nearly 50 domains with them, due to apathy on my own part, and the knowledge that the transfer process is painful. It doesn’t have to be so damn complicated and stressful, but they really don’t want to make it easy to leave at the drop of a hat, so I’ve stayed with them and let the auto renew process take care of everything.
The final straw though was GoDaddy’s recent back and forth on SOPA. Whether or not you believe that SOPA could mean an end to the internet as we know it, you MUST believe that SOPA is a big deal, one that would definitely shut down sites like MCS with a single complaint to the domain host by a single IP holder, with little or no legal recourse. The idea that SOPA is even being considered is offensive, and the fact that GoDaddy is supporting it is obscene.
Effective immediately, I’m transferring all my domains over to namecheap.comSite News on November 9th, 2011 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites

Someone just asked me “hey tiki, why all the reposts lately?” to which I said, well I messed up. you see, I have a folder named “These definitely going up to mcs later when I’m sober and I find the time” and then I have a folder called “These were definitely uploaded to mcs” and I mess up and didn’t move some files, and then DID move them, but them uploaded a ton of other images, and oh god, I’m so sorry.
Please find it in your heart to forgive me. The reposts are due to stop sometime in the next 45-90 days. Until then though, let me axe you a question: how was your halloween? what did you dress up as?Site News on October 12th, 2011 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
1 – can any of you guys comment on the sole post on plus.myconfinedspace.com? I seem to have configured the commenting incorrectly over there, so it should work 99% of the time now. give it a try again?
2 – FUCKING FUCK, I need moderators/authors for a couple websites, if you’re interested, contact me through the usual FAQ related methods…
can any of you stupid fucks rate comments? sometimes I see 500 errors and sometimes I’m able to rate. wtf is that about, I thought I fixed everything, what the fuck people. Fixed it. stupid htaccess was blocking the js file that’s required for rating.
4 – plus.myconfinedspace.com huh. wtf could that be fore?
who emailed me pictures of their boobs from a non-working email address? that’s just mean. thanks mom. I needed that.
those of you using firefox will now be able to add a MCS search box to your search box selection.
be safe with this option please.
to find the mcs search blox, click on the down arrow on the search blarx, and then you should see MCS at the bottom of thar list.Site News on October 6th, 2011 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
As many of you have noted, the site that you are currently reading this message on is performing much better than it was a mere week ago. Sadly, in my drunken stupor, I updated some mysql tables that really were not meant to be overwritten.
What this means, is that the subdomains will not work until I restore the server to it’s default settings, which will wipe everything out, which is not an optimum situation, as your Tiki God will need to back up all the files and the required databases (this time remembering to leave out the “bad” table!) and moving them off to a secondary server while the restore is taking place.
Needless to say, this will take some considerable time and effort, so I’m going to wait until the weekend to move everything around to where it needs to be. Until then, NSFW and the ‘planned’ PLUS subdomain will be….absent.
lol, just kidding, NSFW is working now, have fun.Site News on October 1st, 2011 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Tags: interesting, wtf
things are not as they seem, you are not as you appear, and the server? hah, well my friend, let me tell you of the server. It’s old, it’s busted, and it’s glimmering in the light of a fading sunset.
Soon though, and new sun will rise, and it’s light will illuminate a brave new world, one with twice the processors, and twice the RAM!
That day is soon at hand my friend. You may see fractures of the current glimmering server, and you may not be able to fully understand what it’s trying to tell you, but have patience!
For the reckoning is at hand, and you will be rewarded for your generous willingness to endure these hardships!
If you’re seeing this message, then you have reached the new server.
Enjoy.Site News on September 15th, 2011 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
there’s an MCS store through cafepress now. I’m not really too happy with the prices / fees structure, they seem to be double dipping in a couple places, but they’re the biggest guys on the block in terms of customized merch.
Right now, there’s a couple different versions of the drunk tiki, and one of the theme day submissions.
Theme Day reminder: make stylized mcs logos suitable for bumper stickers or for laptop stickers… I’ll pick a winner and
send them a few of the printed stickers for their troubles. (can’t do this through cafepress ) Then the rest of you can buy them for like $5 each.
I’m finding myself in some financial distress yet again, and was dreaming of ways getting rich quick, and someone in my heads said, hey tiki, and i was like, wtf are you doing in my head?
Anyways we talked it out and he suggested that i sell mcs stickers and or posters. What do you think of this idea? The posters would be the drunk tiki from drunk tiki… Its one of the posts on the last page over there, and the stickers would be smaller versions of that as well as a simple m(c)s stylized sticker… Hmmm perhaps some could make one for a contest or something….
Yeah thats the ticket, next theme day will be stylized logos suitable for bumper stickers or for laptop stickers… I’ll pick a winner and send them a few of the printed stickers for their troubles. Then the rest of you can buy them for like $5 each.
On a totally unrelated note i’ve redone the mcs+ page, it’s fucking awesome now.

Any of you guys tried out the google games section yet? Apparently in the Bejeweled blitz game, your circle of friends can pool their highest scores and get extra in game coins.
Right now I have one other person that’s in my circles playing it, and we’re nearly to the half way point, so I only need a few other people to join in and get some good score.
