This site is great! Back in 2004 the guy had static pictures that changed when you clicked, and people bought it. He fessed up when he realized people weren’t buying that is was not real. But he was criticized by many for pulling one over. In 2005 and again in 2006 he has the real deal going. His whole effort is to raise money for charity and spread Christmas cheer. I like the guy and he writes me a couple of times a year, so go enjoy the show. If you are his neighbor … you are good sports. The IM angle is neat.

One of our favorite utilities for several years is DadaMail. We have never used it on our site, but have installed it for many other people. If you need help installing it, we are happy to do so for a donation, link or whatever. Of course we also encourage you to donate to the author of the fine software.

Justin, the head dadaist as he self styles himself, just released version 2.10.11. The biggest plus to this version is that it tracks sending status and picks up where it left off if it is interrupted. A nice feature.

We keep asking for a multi-user function. Right now if you want two people to have access to one list for management purposes, they need to share a common password. Allowing two passwords would be a big plus. I should probably write such a hack.

Anyway, check out what he has to say here and let us know if you need help with an install.

Someone asked me tonight if you could copy text from a portable document (pdf) formatted file into Word or some other program. The answer fortunately is yes! Find the text button and click it. Either drag the section you want to highlight, or click control + a to highlight all. Hit control + c to copy. That puts it on the pasteboard. Place your cursor in the next program and hit control + v and you are golden and off to the races.

I follow Robt. Scoble’s blog. Don’t ask me why, but I do. He posts more than any other single poster blog I know. It is all sorts of wierd stuff. Maybe it now replaces random surfing for me because in a way he is very random. In the original days of web, you just surfed. I don’t so much anymore. Instead I scan rss feeds and follow one that catches my eye, like his link to a t-shirt company because the guy he meets is wearing one and it impressed Robt’s wife.

The guy actually hangs his phone number out there and says call me we’ll try to fit you in! Now I’m nowhere near the guy, but I always wonder, if someone boring like me calls, will he find the time? I suspect that the answer is yes. He interacts with an interesting crowd. Talk about networked. It’s pretty amazing how small the world grows.

I really need to get our commenting turned back on, don’t I. Not sure when or how it broke, but it did and I’ve been too lazy to get it fired up. I tried it one day and without spam control it was a disaster. I could turn it on, but we had thirty spam in ten minutes. They must be firing constantly at us in hopes of breaking through.

Since Franki has been scarce, I am afraid if I really botched it up, I might take down the site, but with comments broken isn’t that the practical effect anyway.

How’s that? Was I as random as Robt?

It is a sign of a highly recognized logo when you can replace parts of it and still have everyone know what it is, don’t you think?
Google Thanksgiving Logo
They are at it again.

According to an article in todays Washington Times, the California Supreme Court has ruled that those publishing untrue defamatory statements obtained from other sites (republishing) are not subject to liability for those actions. The original author of course could be subjected to liabilities.

The reality is that often the blog-o-sphere, or on-line publishing industry as it is becoming has a tendency to self correct over time, as Robert Scoble pointed out recently — at least I think he did but I cannot find it, so I substitute this thought instead …. There are advantages of being able to speak one’s mind and not face repercussions in most instances. I think this decision is a victory for those supporting free speech, even if that speech is not factually accurate.

Google finished the purchase of YouTube, according to a press release issued by Google. It will be interesting to see how this develops and what additional benefits it brings to people interested in video content on the internet.

This site is totally free to use, you have absolutely no moral or legal obligations to help us continue.
There are however, some costs involved in running the site.

Plus Don needs a new snow shovel.
