etc...

Every now and again I enjoy posting links to sites I find interesting so here goes...Curious about {Stereotypography's} recent plug of {Re_Invigorate}, I began using their new "free" real-time site tracking system to see how it would work. So far I am pleased with the rendered results. While not unlike other free systems it seems, I nevertheless like the unique hits it renders, the fact that it's adfree and, that the snippet of code I had to cut and paste into the HTML editor is completely invisible on the main page of X-preSsionz. So far so good...

So now, imagine a search engine that's interactive and visually appealing...if nothing else, it is simply fun. check it out below.

Virtual PanHandling

Interesting article from { Kuro5hin } about { The Rise of Online Panhandling }LaNMaN2000 writes: "Recently, the internet has been plagued with a vile epidemic: online panhandling. From the woman trying to leave her husband to the car obsessed college student who is seemingly too poor to even afford his own domain name, it seems that every few days another site is launched with the same theme. These sites do not exist to entertain their visitors or satisfy a psychological need on the part of their creators; they are simply presenting a pitch designed to sell their webmasters as helpless charity cases worthy of visitors' financial support. And, it seems like the same marks who would otherwise be paying to import stolen Nigerian fortunes have embraced these sites as another way to flush their money down the proverbial commode."

Seems this kind of panhandling is geting worse owing to the numerous spammails in my inbox of late, with people relating all kinds of hardluck stories and asking for monetary help...are internet end-users perceived by many to be so gullible to fall for these scams? I wonder...

Him...Letter to Yours Truly ✿

Communicating back and forth with each other, and lately, by email. Such a nice feeling; knowing even when he's so tired, he looks forward to hearing from me and that he takes the time to write--so beautifully too! He's so far and yet so near. And so I wrote again. And so he replied again...

Dear C...knee deep in work at the moment. Reading my notes one by one, writing with one hand, and with the other checking my email every five minutes, until, yes, until three this morning, when my eyes would not operate any longer, my pen was scribbling across the pages, and I decided to go mercifully to bed...I checked one last time, and, yes, there was what I was waiting for, a message from you. I couldn't believe my good fortune, the blood was pelting, my heart was beating faster and I opened your lovely message...

I could have written massage, and it would still have been "le mot juste"...a massage of the mind and heart, a message for tired eyes...and I read it, so hungrily, I did not tear through it. It was like a really, really nice bottle of Barbera Superiore, it has to breathe and in breathing, it mellows out, and so it was with your letter. There were so many subtleties of taste, (like your lips...) so many layers of loveliness (like your body...) so many hidden valleys where no man is king. I could not take enough time reading it. But I did, once, and then twice...and then I closed my eyes, and saw you...and then I went to bed...

and now, now I will write, even though it is so early in the morning, and I am on my way to work. I want you to have this first thing...More later, love...
Love, J.
And so I wait...
