Welcome to the New Site!

Welcome to the new version of the Black Sabbath Online website.  This has been a long time coming.  For a couple of reasons. The old site has been here a long time.  It’s served me and the community well, but it was launched in January of 2000, and given this is January 2012, TWELVE years […]

Facebook Screwed Me

Yesterday, Facebook jacked me pretty hard. I had set up a few months back a Facebook page as a companion to this site. I used it to post news there, strike conversation, pretty much that was it. There was less than a dozen pictures, and no video. However, yesterday morning I woke up to find […]


I decided today that I probably should have a Twitter account to go with this site, so I’ve gone and done that.

Changed it to transitional, and it worked fine. ——— I have a strange question that I can’t seem to find an answer to, so I thought I’d […]

Yeah, I’m still here

I’m still here. I’ve been inactive lately. Had a lot going on in real life, the job’s been a bit busier, and the site has suffered. You get behind, the pile gets bigger, and it all snowballs. I’ll be back, I just don’t know when I’ll find the time right now to attack the huge […]
