Is the disgusting manosphere blogger LaidNYC actually the disgusting manosphere blogger Matt Forney?

The real Matt Forney. Is he also LaidInNYC?

The real Matt Forney. Is he also LaidNYC?

So, I’ve written about the terrible “game” blogger LaidNYC several times already because the fellow is such a reliable purveyor of terrible what-the-fuckery — what with his weird fixation on the alleged value of his sperm, his creepy obsession with underage girls, and his overall awfulness as a human being. I have wondered, from time to time, if the fellow isn’t simply a troll, but I’ve kept on writing about him largely because his readers — and other manosphere bloggers — seem to take him utterly seriously.

Today, though, I just noticed a post from Matt Forney — a Manosphere blogger who is himself a deeply terrible person with a history of trollery and sockpuppeting — who seems to be dropping big hints that LaidNYC may not be who he seems. In a post reviewing an”ebook” by LaidNYC — insofar as a 13 page collection of platitudes obviously banged out in a few hours can be considered a book of any kind — Forney writes:

There are bloggers who take weeks, months, years to get into a groove, honing their talents to the point where their posts become must-reads. And then there are guys like LaidNYC who come exploding out of the gate, writing stuff so good you swear they’ve done this before. LaidNYC is on my top tier of bloggers because his writing is not only brutal and honest, brimming with verisimilitude, but his prose style is hilarious as well.

The fact that he so effortlessly sends feminists into shrieking hysterics is proof that he’s doing things right.

Emphasis mine.

He ends the “review” urging his readers to send LaidNYC some real money for his ridiculous “book.”

So is Forney — with that bit about “stuff so good you swear they’ve done it before” — basically admitting that he is LaidNYC? If so, this wouldn’t be the first time he’s written an enthusiastic review of one of his own, er, books under a different name.

I suppose we’ll find out.

In any case, I’m not sure if it matters much if LaidNYC is a genuine “game” blogger with deeply misogynistic views who writes horrendous shit because he believes every word of it, or a troll with deeply misogynistic views who writes horrendous shit because he wants to piss off women and feminists and maybe con a few gullible followers into sending him money while he’s at it.

And whether or not LaidNYC’s noxious “advice” is meant seriously, manosphere dudes are lapping it up regardless.

Matt Forney and LaidNYC — who may or may not be the same person — have learned that you can get attention by saying terrible things. Congratulations. What an amazing accomplishment.

EDITED TO ADD: Well, on Twitter, for what it’s worth, Forney denies it all.

I did manage to find an audio interview with LaidNYC here. You can compare it to Forney’s voice on his podcast here. At first I was thinking that while the voices are similar, it wasn’t a match: LaidNYC was a faster talker with a higher voice, etc.  (It’s hard to tell, in part because LaidNYC’s voice in the interview is poor quality, over the phone.) But then I skipped ahead to about ten minutes into Forney’s podcast and now I’m not sure. The voices are awfully similar (and frankly, not terribly alpha-sounding). Any thoughts?

  1. David – good gods. One can only presume Forney neither looks at his own photos nor has any mirrors in his house.

    I now want to see him get tripped over by older PoC with walkers. Preferably so he lands in a gutter full of muck.

  2. Class act all the way, that Mr. Forney.

  3. How dare people who Forney doesn’t want to fuck exist!

    In related news, I really, really don’t want to fuck Matt Forney. Shouldn’t he, like, poof out of existence, just to be fair? I mean, he is quite blatantly walking around in public while failing to meet my physical requirements for fuckability.

  4. i posed that question, sittiekitty, after you posted this:

    I was clear on the timeline, wasn’t clear on the indication for the question?

  5. Re/ Matt Forney’s lisp: the point is, if you watch Lindy West’s video, she is emphatically NOT mocking him, but rather finding cause for compassion. She is speaking about how seeing these guys, who have brutally and relentlessly harassed her for being “fat’n’ugly”, made her realize that they were coming from a place of such insecurity and loneliness, she could only feel sorry for them, And I imagine most of us understand that, if you scratch the surface of a Matt Forney or a Roosh or a LaidNYC, you find a well of pain. That’s not excusing their deplorable words and actions, BTW, but I believe it helps explain why they such rabid (albeit small) fan bases. They are somehow more accessible to their fans by being less-than-perfect specimens themselves.

  6. Matt Forney once remarked that I was “the cancer” blighting academia today, BTW. It still makes me chuckle as I heave my carcass to class every day.

  7. He’s racist, sexist and ugly, and he wants people to think he’s getting laid? HAHAHHAHAHA. Such a class act as Forney is going to be dating his hand for a really long time.

  8. Forney has a lisp? I’d never have known, because I’m never going to watch any of his videos.

    I have a lisp. Sir used to stammer. I couldn’t care less if Forney lisps or not. Neither do I care whether he was teased about it at school, as I was. My compassion for shites like him is nonexistent.

  9. We’re back to the “you need to get off my foot” thing again. Even if his desire to step on people’s feet is caused by deep emotional pain, that doesn’t mean that it’s OK for him to do so. He’s sad and that’s why he steps on people’s feet? Well, that’s a shame, but it doesn’t make their feet any less deserving of not being trod on. He’s insecure? Again, that’s a shame, but he still needs to get off of everyone else’s feet.

  10. Yeah, i don’t give a fuck what kind of deep emotional pain Forney may or may not have. It’s what he chooses to with his not getting enough hugs that bothers me.

    This “deep pain” shit shit seems to want to let a lot of egregious behavior off the hook.

  11. Exactly. The “but they’re so sad/lonely/whatever” argument doesn’t work, because of all the people who’re sad, lonely or whatever and who are not racist, sexist, homophobic or bigotry-of-your-choice pieces of shit. It isn’t an excuse. Their behaviour and attitudes are not good enough.

  12. They are choosing to behave this way. I don’t mean to Godwin the thread, but you don’t invade Poland and kill 6 million people because mommy didn’t love you–that’s a choice.

  13. The example that always gets me: a certain person I know was whipped daily from when he was about 18 months (yes, months) old because his father was of the “I was beaten every day and it did me good” mentality. This meant beatings from his father, governess or anyone they deputed to do it, at least once a day.

    This person did not do the same to his sons. He chose not to repeat the harm done to him.

    I’d have thought it wasn’t impossible for an oh-so-enlightened 21st century dude to do at least as well as that.

  14. Buttercup Q. Skullpants

    Side note, back in June Laidnyc penned an overly dramatic post titled “The End Is Near”, in which he told readers something to the effect of “You won’t have me around for much longer, I’m shutting down the blog, adieu forever, goodbye cruel world.” (Translation: Please tell me how great I am and beg me to keep blogging so my inflated grandiosity and self importance will be validated.)

    One guy posted in response, “You’re Matt Forney, aren’t you?”

  15. Buttercup Q. Skullpants

    kitteh – that’s awful. I’m glad your friend was self-aware enough to break the cycle. That takes an astounding level of maturity and forgiveness.

  16. I can never figure out which of them are separate people, because they all sound so similar. It’s as if PUAs and MRAs only come in 3 or so different models each, and they make them in a factory.

  17. Buttercup – not to mention that this happened some four hundred years ago (it’s Louis) and that there was what we’d call sexual abuse involved as well.

  18. Yep, don’t care how sad and lonely they are. Hell, this is me not pondering how many of my friends would answer an email in under, oh, six hours? Pecunium, and the ex-fiancé’s brother, maybe, if they happen to be around…the former is text-able but yeah, see how I don’t go spouting sexist shit?

  19. Sooo… yeah, the guy’s a massive… the only insult I can think of that isn’t horrifically gendered is MRA, and he wouldn’t take that as an insult – though any self respecting human being should take offence at the accusation. Anyway, he’s one o’ them, but yeah, irony and hypocrisy aside, it is a little low of us to poke at their looks. The guy has few enough redeeming features that we can tear him to shreds on philosophy alone… I dunno… I always feel like “the side of truth and justice and goodness” should be universally better. But then I find myself wanting to point out how good it is for my own ego to see what these guys who’re so full of themselves look like. (Damn, but I do feel sexy whenever I compare myself to them.)
    Humans, huh? Watcha gonna do? I mean, other than harvest them for nutrient paste, come the invasion.

  20. Even though I despise these people, I still wonder what the fuck in the world caused them to be like this. I like to understand, I get curious as to the reason. I feel like that’s a part of the reason why people say “Oh, he was this and that as a kid, ect ect”. Some people are very compassionate and able to empathise, I’m sometimes like that but I find it harder and harder to be charitable to MRAs, but I still wonder what caused them to be as hateful as they are.

    If only to try to avoid having anyone I raise turn out like them…

    I didn’t watch the video La Strega, the way you described it sounded like they were making fun of the lisp so I apologise for that misinterpretation. Totally my bad.

  21. At first I was thinking that while the voices are similar, it wasn’t a match: LaidNYC was a faster talker with a higher voice, etc. (It’s hard to tell, in part because LaidNYC’s voice in the interview is poor quality, over the phone.) But then I skipped ahead to about ten minutes into Forney’s podcast and now I’m not sure. The voices are awfully similar (and frankly, not terribly alpha-sounding). Any thoughts?

    They all hatch out of identical pods?

    More seriously: maybe you could secure the services of an expert and find out in that way whether the stuff you mention has been written by one person or two. Programs and processes now exist which can pick out a writer’s individual quirks and and pin down the origin of anything he (or she) might have written, regardless of any efforts he (or she) might have made to obscure the truth. Of course this might take money, but possibly you could pass the hat via this blog or do something with Kickstarter. Just a suggestion.

    Whether you’d be willing to go so far as to do that, though, would depend on how important you think the provenance of this junk is. Personally, I don’t think it’s very important: what difference does it make to anyone here whether what we’re witnessing is a smoochy-kissy lovefest between heart-plighted bros or one single guy wanking off? Either way, it’s mildly amusing, but either way, it’s a spectacle which fails to enthrall. (Though still I expect it would be kind of fun to find out for sure.)

    So, short version: no. No thoughts.

  22. Not being willing to accept “has had a hard life” as an excuse for behavior like Forney’s doesn’t necessarily indicate a lack of empathy.

    Let’s also think about the way this stuff is gendered – women are expected to empathize with men who’re horrible to them, but is anyone asking him to try to empathize with the women he rants about?

  23. Funny, isn’t it. The PUAs go on about how successful they are and how they’ve fucked every fuckable woman or girl in the world … yet they still have time (and energy!) to sit at their keyboards ranting about women in general and how terrible we are.

    Seems like all that action they’re getting (yeahright) isn’t making them as happy as they claim.

  24. Yikes! I knew my comment would trigger a load of “WTFs???” Neither I (nor Lindy West) is making a case that their sad lives are “excuses” or should be an appeal to our empathy. Don’t get me wrong: I enjoy hating hateful people and hateful ideas as much as anyone, but at the same time, my morbid fascination with these guys (and more especially with their followers) is fed by a curiosity about what makes them tick. I want to know where this rage is coming from!

    I teach at a community college, where every day I over-hear young men casually refer to women as “bitches,” and I am endlessly horrified by this. I assume that these are the “fodder” of the likes of Roosh and Matt Forney.

    I don’t hate men, although God knows after 50 years on this planet impersonating a female I have reasons to. Why do they hate me? And I really worry about the influence these self-styled “gurus” exert on teenagers.

    Pardon me for rambling… I guess what I’m saying is all of this (plus two martinis) makes me very sad and frustrated and befuddled sometimes.

  25. Young men calling women “bitches” is such garden variety sexism, it’s part of the culture and I’d bet they’re not even thinking about what they’re doing. They should, and I’m not cutting the slack, but you’re giving Roosh and Forney way too much credit.

  26. ^them slack

  27. Don’t get me wrong: I enjoy hating hateful people and hateful ideas as much as anyone, but at the same time, my morbid fascination with these guys (and more especially with their followers) is fed by a curiosity about what makes them tick.

    Sort of like poking with a stick at some slimy thing that crawled out from under a rock. ;)

  28. I still wonder what caused them to be as hateful as they are.

    If I had to guess, I’d say a dash of bitterness, a sprinkle of missed opportunity, and a large helping of zero self-reflection.
    About four years ago I had the bitterness after a long term (by late teenage/early twenties reckoning) and deeply scarring relationship ended by her, after a year of literal screaming fits over her fear of me cheating on her, cheating on me. When I look at some MRAs, I see myself as I was inside back then. I took part in some what-about-teh-menzing, though I didn’t realise how disruptive it was at the time, how it turned the discussion away from who to deal with women’s issues into just a screaming match about who said what when about who. I think I would’ve caught myself eventually anyway, because I’ve always made a point of reflecting on what I’m doing and how I’m thinking, because humans are irrational monkeys who do stupid things for stupid reasons, and I’m one of them, but it took me a very long time to notice that I was doing anything or thinking the way I was thinking. I met my ex, and as we fell into a terminal orbit around each other and talked about nothing, everything, and the cats in the middle, I saw what I needed to fix… not all of it, obviously, or she wouldn’t be my ex, probably, but at least the bits that could’ve turned me into an MRA are fixed or well under my gaze. I sleep much better now, if not actually any more… I wonder if that’s related or just a coincidence?
    So… yeah I think it’s bitterness over some slight, perceived or actual, and a lack of reflection.

  29. Plus a heaping dose of entitlement, willfull ignorance of what feminism is about, and massive privilege-blindness.

  30. Mm… fair point there. That’s why I really failed to become an MRA – I had the most basic understanding of feminism possible, and so couldn’t be tricked into believing it was Satan’s fanclub. Also, I did well in history class, so, despite not knowing about privilege, I at least knew what it meant to be descended from a group of people who subjugated a sizeable chunk of the world. Also, I grew up in Yorkshire in the 80’s with Irish neighbours so… yeeeaaaah, I could never have fallen in with the “how dare you call me privileged!” brigade. Still have to deal with the entitlement though. :\

  31. A good friend of mine grew up in circumstances such that, to put it baldly, he’d have had a better childhood had he been adopted by Joan Crawford. He has taken responsibility for his own mental health, and spent most of his twenties and thirties working on the fucked-upped-ness his parents bequeathed to him.

    Nothing he’s done in his life has approached the awfulness of LaidNYC/Forney. I know, everyone has their own path in life, et cetera, but past a certain point you are responsible for your own actions. I don’t care how much of LNYC’s dysfunction is due to looking like he does – you can be a decent human being despite such setbacks. But you have to WANT to be a decent human being, and that’s where he goes from pitiable to loathsome.

  32. But you have to WANT to be a decent human being, and that’s where he goes from pitiable to loathsome.

    THIS, not to mention QFT.

  33. I’ve reflected a lot lately about my path in life and what makes these guys tick. I’ve met some guys like these in real life, the “entitlement” type who are furious with women for not fitting their beauty standard. I was victim of some of that in years past, and it did affect me. But now I look back and realize that even though guys like that wanted me to believe that I had no value, I still have something to show for my life, and it’s not something ugly, like the kinds of things that these guys write in these blogs.

    Thank you to the person who linked to the Lindy West (I think that’s her name?) video. She reveals that these guys are so low and so insecure and this is a way for them to try to compensate for that. She said that they were actually *pissed* at her for being happy! How messed up is that?

    It reminds me of people I’ve known who’ve acted disappointed when someone else has some good news. That’s a big red flag and a major sign of loserville. If you’re so pathetic that other people living their lives, accomplishing things and being happy — if you’re so low that you can’t stand to see that, then you need to step away from the computer and work on fixing yourself! Yikes!

  34. thenatfantastic

    Isn’t the whole point of PUA that you can turn yourself alpha by Konami-coding women no matter what you look like?

    So yeah, he’s a hypocrite for demanding double-standards of women but that’s pretty much at the centre of PUA-istry and not a specific failing of his because we don’t find him attractive.

    So I’m all for saying that his opinions about what women should be like are ridiculous and hypocritical and pointing out that he’s not exactly a HB10 himself but going into specifics about what makes him ‘ugly’ just seems unnecessary.

    As the great Roald Dahl said: “If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”

  35. Got this link from the againstmensrights sub:

    http://mattforney.com/2013/09/16/the-case-against-female-self-esteem/

    What a repulsive creature he is.

  36. Funny, I only just noticed – Ser Forney over there not only censors, but edits comments posted to his page that disagree with him. Now, I don’t know where I heard this, but isn’t it an absolutely true fact that suppressing free speech on the internet is literally worse than Hitler?

  37. Why the hell should these guys get so nasty to innocent people? There would have to be some bitterness in there. Definitely. But then there’s a reason one person would transfer that hatred and bully innocent people, while another person, who’s been through the same thing let’s say, would want to make sure that this would never happen to anyone else again.

    I guess they’re probably unhappy (why the hell else attack people and rant?), and yet there are people who have been through abuse and/or all these other terrible things that don’t act like this necessarily.

    People have these beliefs about themselves. For example ‘I am sociable’, ‘I am moody’, ‘I am good with computers’, ‘I am good with animals’, ‘I like animals’, or ‘I am clumsy’ or basically anything a person believes about themselves, can potentially become a part of their identity.

    The dangerous thing about having a distorted self identity is that your mind always works to fulfill your self identity. So for example If someone saw themselves as unambitious, they wouldn’t try being ambitious. That self concept might hinder them from looking for a job, finishing all they’re work, and just not being real motivated.

    Trying to be determined and ambitious without changing the self concept would never work, really. You would just feel like there is something artificial in your behavior.

    And I guess you’re more likely to believe someone else than just yourself. I can try to convince myself that I am super smart or attractive or something else that’s good, but then It’s not the same as hearing it from someone else. I mean, unless you saw some obvious bias in the person you’re talking to (like they’re mad, or jealous, or maybe sucking up to you to get something) then I guess you might as well believe what they’re saying.

    All of the cheesy stereotypes that we have of women so far is that they are ‘nurturing’, ‘overly sensitive’, and ‘nagging’ and ‘needy’ and whatever else. And so by contrast the stereotypes for men would have to be that they’re ‘tough’, ‘unfeeling’, or even ‘mean’, ‘cold’, and basically whatever the opposite of women’s are.

    That’s why, I’m guessing It’s a combination of bitterness, and a twisted self-identity. And some guys have just bought into this crap it seems. Most people have grown out of this already, but they’ve actually accepted these stupid stereotypes somehow. Maybe because it gives them an identity. And since they seem to think being aggressive and without compassion is all a part of “being a man”, It’s like they’ve tied their egos to being this way as well. This is NOT an excuse, just a possible reason. But this is ONLY a theory. I could be wrong. Crap I didn’t mean to write so much.

  38. So I’m all for saying that his opinions about what women should be like are ridiculous and hypocritical and pointing out that he’s not exactly a HB10 himself but going into specifics about what makes him ‘ugly’ just seems unnecessary.

    Yeah, that’s what I meant. It’s one thing to point out that he’s no hottie by most people’s standards despite the stuff he writes, but writing that he’s got a weird head with lumps on the sides (as someone did further up the thread), that’s mean to people who read this site and might have a similar head.

    There’s a difference between merely pointing out that someone is no hottie and going into details.

  39. Funny, I only just noticed – Ser Forney over there not only censors, but edits comments posted to his page that disagree with him. Now, I don’t know where I heard this, but isn’t it an absolutely true fact that suppressing free speech on the internet is literally worse than Hitler?

    Don’t worry. It’s okay, because other people sometimes do the same thing.

    Such an indepedent man of integrity!

  40. I apologize for the phrenology comment.

    For the record, I don’t find bald men, or men with bumpy heads, unattractive unless those heads are attached to people with repulsive personalities.

  41. Heh, so I left a comment on his site. Granted, it did reference the fact that his position is incoherent and irrational, but it was polite and helpful. Edited down to the equivalent of “herperderperderr.” I didn’t exactly expect fair treatment or anything like that, but it’s interesting to see just how intellectually dishonest he is. Maybe it’s more that I didn’t “articulate an opposing viewpoint” so much as try to help him that got me censored? Can’t have the opposition look like they have compassion for men and boys, can we? Clearly he doesn’t understand the one valid use of censorship – allowing productive discussions to continue without constant dishonesty or abuse. Ah well, it’s his own mind he’s wasting.

  42. Stephanie Zvan of Almost Diamonds did a masterful multi-part take-down of Forney’s vile “Self-Esteem BAD” post, and then did a Storify out of it and the reaction she got from his fanboys on Twitter. TW for just about everything you’d expect, though no rape-threats for once (just how low have we sunk that I have to look at this as the bright spot?):

    http://freethoughtblogs.com/almostdiamonds/2013/10/08/this-is-supremacy/

  43. Freemage: That is an awesome article!

    Also, I apologize also for my comments about Forney’s appearance. It is unfair to those men out there who may bear a resemblance to him, but not be total assholes. So instead, I will use a metaphor from Forney’s own “The Case Against Female Self Esteem” to insult him: Matt Forney isn’t a nice juicy steak. He isn’t even hamburger, which even though isn’t as fancy as steak, when prepared correctly is totally delicious. Nope, Forney is tripe that’s been left outside in the hot sun for 3 days and is rotting and covered with flies (I’ve heard rumors that properly prepared tripe can be quite delicious, also, so yeah, he’s rotten tripe).

  44. thenat’s Dahl quote summed it up.

    Forney: ugly as sin because he’s a godawful horrible person.

    Person who could be his twin brother physically but is a decent, caring human being: nothing unattractive there!

    I think it was pretty clear in everyone’s comments that Forney’s hypocrisy and inner ugliness are what makes his collection of features gross. Him, not anyone who happens to look like him.

  45. I actually think it’s those sunglasses and the lack of colour… every time I see the top of this page load up I go “GWAGH! Aliens are real!” It’s really starting to bother me…

  46. I still like calling him rotten tripe. I think it really captures the nauseated feeling I get from reading anything he puts out. :)

  47. Great hamburger recipe:

    Take ground beef (if you can grind it yourself great, if not meh, oh well), lay it out on a cookie sheet or foil or something in tiny tiny pieces (you’ll have to pick it apart). Sprinkle salt and pour a little bit of melted and cooled butter over it. Form gently into patties and cook on the BBQ or the stovetop. Seriously, mostest delicious burgers EVER.

  48. Terrible hamburger recipe:

    Shape the hamburger meat into patties. Shake some pepper over them. Realize too late that the lid to the pepper is loose. Figure that you can just scrape all the extra pepper off and they’ll be OK.

  49. Important thing to do while cooking hamburgers? Sear it. You have to have whatever you’re cooking on hot enough to sear a nice crust onto the hamburger and then turn it down to cook the rest, otherwise all the juices run out and it becomes dry. Same with letting it rest for like 5 mins after removing it from the heat – if you do, it’s a lot more moist.

    Now I want hamburgers…

  50. Dang it, those sound so good I want hamburgers now too. Even the peppery burger. I have this cookbook “Semi-Homemead with Sandra Lee: Grilling” that has a recipe for pepper crusted burgers: you mix onion soup mix and cognac in with the ground beef and then roll the patty in cracked pepper corns and serve with a cognac-mustard sauce. It comes out very good.
    Too bad I’m already making chicken tonight for dinner.

  51. thenatfantastic

    That reminds me, I selflessly* bought Boy Fantastic a recipe book of 101 vegan burgers for his birthday and I haven’t had one yet :(

    (*OK, maybe not entirely selflessly…)

  52. I am suddenly wondering if quorn counts as a ground beef substitute? I’ve had that stuff in the freezer for several months now… it is probably starting to resent me. Seems like burgers would be a good way to test it?

  53. Nat, if you find one that’s really good, please share the recipe!

  54. , And I imagine most of us understand that, if you scratch the surface of a Matt Forney or a Roosh or a LaidNYC, you find a well of pain.

    I don’t think that. It may be so, but I assume they are just assholes. I’ve known lots of people who were just assholes. I don’t see any need to patholgise assholery.

    And, if they are, so what? Having a shitty parent, or an ex who was a raving shitstain and abused the fuck out of you; even if it still hurts 20 years later isn’t an excuse. Lots of people had that happen and do go around spouting the crap these fuckheads do.

    I only care, on a concrete level, how someone got to be fucked up, when they are trying to fix it. So, accepting that these dudes have pain… they don’t want to fix it. They want to export it. So yeah, their pain (if any) is my problem only because of what they are doing with it.

  55. More relevant to pecunium — feel my pain! I can’t seem to get the Final Nights mod working on the mac! No Salubri for me if I can’ thank this together into a functional mac app (or cave and just install windows already)

  56. *also relevant to Athywren, who I’m guessing has no tips

  57. Sorry Argenti, I have zero experience with macs… I have some with linux? Though not with getting games to work… and that’s not really relevant… sorry.

    I’ll have a look to see if there are any comments about getting it to work on a mac.

  58. I’m trying a pair of things now, if neither works then I’ll need help. As it is I’m giving wine and cider a go (for some reason windows emulators are named after booze, I suspect because trying to do this shit will make you want some)

  59. I cave, time for a minimal XP install.

  60. I cave, time for a minimal XP install.

  61. Pretty much!

    I’m actually doing worse — I’m currently doing a full mac backup and then *drum roll* wiping my HD. Because OSX has no registry, I can do this unix style and just copy what I need back. After 3~ years without a clean install, it’s all cluttered and messy.

  62. Ya know, generally helps if I include .local in the damned server addy eh? Why the fuck was I doing that over the external bandwidth (which is made of molasses)?
