“I am doing everything I can to help Mitt Romney be the NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE USA!!!!!! I made this commercial for him and am hoping that he will approve it. But so far his campaign has not gotten back to me. If enough people see this video, maybe he will return my calls!”
Marie Antoinette baptised Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna (or Maria Antonia Josephina Johanna); 2 November 1755 – 16 October 1793), born an archduchess of Austria, was Dauphine of France from 1770 to 1774 and Queen of France and Navarre from 1774 to 1792. She was the fifteenth and penultimate child of Holy Roman Emperor Francis I and Empress Maria Theresa.

I voted this morning in the most important presidential race in my lifetime.
I haven’t been ranting on this blog about the complex feelings that I have been having over the last 2 months, as the presidential race turning into a pageant of slime and cynicism – but it has been affecting me on a deep emotional level that I would have never thought possible. … Read the rest
I have been a Slashdot fan for a while now, and these guys are just a STITCH. Sometimes they get going on a riff and the results are laugh out loud funny.
I am posting this ‘repost’ to illustrate, the link at the bottom will take you to the original material.
Posted by ScuttleMonkey on Friday June 27, @03:12PM from the new-swimming-holes dept. Earth Science phobos13013 writes “Recently released evidence is showing the North Pole ice is melting at the highest rate ever recorded. As a result, the Pole may be completely ice-free at the surface and composed of nothing but open water by September. As reported in September of last year, the Northwest Passage was ice-free for the first time known to man. The implications of this, as well as the causes, are still being debated.… Read the rest
It’s official. ‘Android’ will be Google’s face in the wireless world. At least I will be able to save on calls to 411.
“At the core, Google is betting that easier consumer access to Internet services from their mobile phones will lead consumers to use its services more—which has been the case with Web access on the personal computer. The open model echoes Google’s announcement last week of OpenSocial technical specifications to be used by social networking sites and software developers creating applications for them.” Wall Street Journal
“Among the handset makers that signed on to Google’s initiative were Taiwan’s HTC Corp., Samsung Electronics Co. and Motorola Inc. Operator partners include Deutsche Telekom AG’s T-Mobile, Sprint Nextel Corp., and Japan’s NTT DoCoMo Inc.”
Living in a beautiful New England location has many drawbacks, one of them being that the local telcos are so ridiculously backwards, a vestigial tail of days gone by.
For instance, for me to make a phone call 5 miles down the road in the same state, one town over, is a long distance call. Crazy and absurd.
The other thing is boggles the mind are the phone books. Since 5 miles away is a long distance call, I also require an additional phone book to locate businesses in that town. Add this to the fact that I live in a tri-state area, and it shows what is antiquated business model for the Yellow Pages has become. Not for the various companies that publish the Yellow Pages, but for the businesses that pay to advertise in the Yellow Pages.… Read the rest
Well, I have been doing a new blog for outsider art for a client of mine, trying to help their old art gallery space to get found. In doing this research I have now officially graduated to the ‘hard core’ blogging word, embarking on the open source quest using WordPress. In my search for PHP tools to integrate WordPress with Flickr, I stumbled upon Tijs Teulings blog researching the WordPress Theme of Hemingway and Slickr where I clicked onto his link to MyBlogLog. So now I am on that site and see people viewing, I thought I would write this quich post to say “Hello all out there in the MyBlogLog community !… Read the rest
Well, as the titles says, I have outgrown the WordPress blog application in faily short order and now I am on to WordPress.
Joomla allows for a certain amount of robustness in content production and uploading capabilities, and as of late I have pitched a few new clients and the response has been faily overwhelming.
There is an aspect of ‘Interactive Design’ which has really determined how people interact with websites that has grown over the years that has taken on new meaning in the way I see the overall direction of website design.
Being a huge fan of Myst in the early days of CDRom’s I can safely say that I an not immune to the appeal of a certain amount of intrigue and discovery in the process of ‘walking’ through’ an new and wondrous ‘Virtual World’.Â That being said the web has changed into a world where being grounded in the familiar has taken on an appeal all it’s own.Â I guess this sounds like it is coming from the ‘if ya can’t beat em, join ’em’ camp, but as a sales tool for engaging people in the notion of ‘website salvage’ becomes an attractive option.… Read the rest
