I was watching news report about the early strikes on “targets of military opportunity”. There was nothing else on TV, it was the same thing on all the channels: people talking about war.

Here’s the site after YAR. The new link at the top was what brought this all on. I needed to simplify, and make it easier to change later. For example, I renamed the “left” div to “subnav”, so the name works even if it’s not on the left. I fixed the […]

Hope everyone enjoyed that break from school. I was at work. It’s a serious shift to realize those breaks - spring, fall, summer, etc. - don’t happen any more. I get the official holidays - Christmas Day, New Year’s, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, you get the idea - but not much more.
This wasn’t […]

Got a phone call Friday night, from Gwen’s parents. They said we would be having some visitors from Ohio the next day. That’s all we knew.
It turns out, they were the visitors. They randomly decided to come visit us. Saturday afternoon, they showed up, and stayed the weekend. They left […]

There’s also the unsubscribe trick that has an error in the removal script, so it really is there, but it’s “temporarily out of service”. Riiiiiiight…..

I tried the “unsubscribe” link at the end of this one spam message. It brought up the usual “enter your email and we’ll remove it” page. I entered it and clicked submit. I got this in return:
There was an error :
