Welcome to The Thrilling Detective Web Site. Again.
Welcome to the Winter of Discontent #2.
As those of you who know how many beans make five already know…
As of April 1, 2021 (our 23rd anniversary), it’s official. thrillingdetective.com is dead.
Long live thrillingdetective.com!
Let me explain. We’re not really going anywhere, we’ve simply changed where the domain thrillingdetective.com is parked, moving the site from our old server to a new one, allowing us to make it a WordPress site, with all those nifty features you guys apparently love.
Q: What if I don’t love it?
A: You’re pretty much out of luck, unfortunately. Adobe’s ever-evolving march on simplicity has triumphed, with the beloved simple PageMill morphing into the tolerable GoLive into the interminable tech clusterfuck that is Dreamweaver–a program so bloated with features I don’t need or understand that I can barely use it.
Q: So we’ve moved everything from the old location, right?
A: Uh, not exactly. It’s a huge site, but I’m more than half way there. I’m trying to move (and often, update) the primary pages first. Of course, “primary” may be in the eye of the beholder, so if you get the dreaded “Sorry, Pal” message, our team of experts (well, me) will jump on it. Unfortunately, it will take time for all the search engines and the rest of the internet to catch up. If it’s something you really want to see, let me know.
Q: Does that mean all the old stuff has disappeared?
A: Nope. It still exists on my Mac, on an external hard drive and possibly in the hearts of millions. And it will all be ultimately transferred here.
Q: Anything else I should know?
A: Yes, in fact, I’ve got a new feature I think I call Dick of the Day. Everyday (except, possibly, for the usual catastrophes, like, er, AT&T, holidays, and long-delayed trips to Canada), I plan to post a link on Twitter and elsewhere to one of the thousands of private eyes I have listed on the site. I’d love to know what you think.
Q: What about those buy links? Who’s getting rich off that?
A: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. but I’m certainly not getting rich. I wish.
Got something in a private eye vein I should know about? Tell me!
Got something to show me? I can’t post if I don’t know…
And for those who’d like to send me review copies (or bundles of unmarked bills, preferably tens and twenties), my snail mail is:
