Rant Of The Day THIS RANT ^/12/97

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

The mysterious disappearing Gusworld

Gusworld readers are used to the site not getting updated sometimes, especially when it's the Christmas season and I'm drunk all the time. But having the entire site disappear -- which obsessives may have noticed happened for three or four days last week -- is something more of a rarity.

Strange stories about what happened have been circulating, and I feel it it my duty to put paid to some of them. Firstly, there is no truth to the rumour that I have been arrested and placed in a jail cell over my connection to Michael Hutchence's bizarre death. The rumours of my suicide have also been greatly exaggerated. In truth, I haven't been to the Ritz-Carlton in Double Bay since I gave a speech there about how to conserve power in computer monitors. (This last bit is not a joke.)

Secondly, I have no idea what happened to the site. It could have been user error, and we are currently investigating if Prozac was involved. Fortunately, we were able to steer the site back from the brink of tragedy.

Thirdly, kinky sex did not play a part in the site's disappearance, although I'm willing to consider all offers.

And finally, I'd just like to say, there is nothing very appealing about carrot jam.
