It's very easy to get distracted. You might have a task to do, but a little way into it, and you find something else that's oodles more interesting. This can be recurring, because you can get distracted from your original distraction, and you end up doing a little bit of everything, and nothing got done. Did you know that Thai people eat the most chili per head in the world? Chili doesn't even come from Chile. This post was originally supposed to be a notification that I will do some maintenance on RalphvandenBerg.com at the end of the month (May), or just right at the beginning of next month (June), so some of you might experience a bit of a problem accessing certain pages. I'm thinking of temporarily putting up a page that says "Temporarily Closed for Maintenance".

During this operation, no information will be lost. All the Ramblings and user information will be the kept safely, and you can find them just the same next month. Here's something interesting; there's currently a protest in Bangkok, and there is talk of a revolution. I've heard that they expect this one to not be as peaceful as the coupe we've had last year. The funny part is, I've just read "Night Watch" by Terry Pratchett. There's also a revolution happening in that book. Welcome to the Republic of Treacle Mine Road! It's also quite interesting when you see a group of actors always act together in certain movies. I've just watched "Hot Fuzz", and it's got the same bunch of guys as "Shawn of the Dead". You'll notice the same thing with a bunch of Adam Sandler's older movies. It's like they have a pact, getting each other the auditions or something. Maybe they tell the director: "I'm not doing it unless so-and-so is in it too!"

And thus concludes this announcement. Oh wait, one more thought for the Guys: let's pretend you are gentlemen, and you lift the toilet seat when you do your number 1. After you're done should you put it back down? If you leave it up, a lady coming in will have to put it down (not good), and if you put it down, then a lady coming in will think that you never put it up in the first place (also not good). Life's not fair. So yeah, maintenance happening soon, don't worry, all will be all right.

Caution, wet floor! Slippery when wet! Danger! Children must be accompanied by adults when smoking in the lift in case of fire!

I can't pay attention- I can't afford it.

About the maintenance, I think there will be one thing that will be lost. If you've set profile pictures, I'm not going to keep them. The profiles will be offline for a while, but I'm already planning on replacing them with something a lot better. When the time comes, you can upload bigger and better pictures. There will also be something else, the better thing, but I'm going to surprise you with that. Just hang on, tonight will be the night, and tomorrow (pray) everything will be better!
