I am so sick of people or organizations offering something for free for your website... and it starts off great... only to find out a week - month - or year later they change it and add a link to their website on it... As you may have noticed I have a random java script to the right that says stupid proverb... its a simple java script that used to point to another website and read a new saying everyday... well I popped on my own website for a minute just to check it out and noticed something that said the script has moved go "here" to get the new code blah blah blah... okay fine I go there and get it... use the new code and at the end of every saying they have an ugly picture and a link to their website ow.. how irritating... I took the script... changed it and hosted it on my own website... sorry... I don't think it is unethical at all... what they did is... if they give me a hard time about it I'll rewrite it and offer it for free to everyone.... anyway since this episode has happened and I know that people claiming to give away free search engines do the same thing... I am for a limited time only willing to make you a FREE.. NO STRINGS ATTACHED SEARCH ENGINE... that's right its Java based but I love the way it works... its primitive it does not update itself so if you constantly update your site it won't update on its own but other than that its perfect and if you email me (its right over to the right - click on contact the midget) and tell me you want a free search engine for your site and the address of the site (so I can index it) and that's it I will send you the java scripts that make it work and the HTML code for your site... yeah... NO STRINGS ATTACHED.. no hidden link - nothing... FREE

NO... if they initially state that they are going to... then thats fine but to do it a month later or year or whatever its complete bullshit... and nevermind their terms of use either... that long ass bullshit on all the websites like anyone is actually going to read that... neverless I'm not saying its a legal issue its just an ethical issue... I'm so sick of this world and nobody saying what it is they are doing or expressing their true motive... what is everyones problem... speak the truth... FOR A CHANGE... PLEASE

I know very little about yahoo 360 if there is a place to munipulate the code then yes you can put it there... because you have a paid address for it I could index it but its just a search engine like say google (not no where as sophisticated as google but you get the idea) Honestly since you are a friend I will teach you how to put it on there or find out if you can... but for everyone else... this isn't an offer to teach the world if you know what to with it great if you don't well hey I'll give you the code and index and look it UP

Paris Hilton Again?

A friend and reader of this blog recently asked me to write something about the whole Paris Hilton thing that is going on... They said "if anyone can do it you can" quite flattering yet I suppose anyone can write about it... You can find the friends blog here MOOD MOLE .
The problem with taking the request into consideration and setting my writing into action is this... I assume that they would want me to slam Mrs. Hilton and say that she should take responsibility for her actions and stop trying to blame it on her publicist.... Well first I am late... and she has... second SCREW THAT... This is pure human survival instinct... When faced with jail - say and do anything to try to avoid it... The people that want to put you there will... They'll lie, fabricate, over exaggerate, and anything else, to destroy you, and further their career and/or agenda. Paris did do something wrong (I'm not going to address the DUI again you can read about that HERE) She drove with a suspended license... Not too bright since she's in the spotlight (bright - spotlight ... he he) all the time... Did she know her license was suspended?... Of course she knew... She ignored it because being spoiled little rich girl she has always done whatever she wanted with no consequences... Well this time there is consequences and jail is going to suck (trust me I know). Should she go... Was her crime so bad that she belongs in jail? well the problem here is that the answer is no and yes... First no one deserves to go to jail just for driving with a suspended license unless of course another crime goes with it such as driving without a license and say... Manslaughter, or even a lesser charge like reckless driving or excessive speed you could argue the point that maybe they deserve to go to jail... But just driving with a suspended license to me sending you to jail is a little excessive... This is another doing of the corrupt MADD crusades... While driving under a suspended license that has been suspended for a driving under the influence charge... Everyone goes to jail... That's the way it is... If you want to rally against it I commend you, but for now that's the way it is. SO Paris Hilton is not being treated any different then anyone else... She should go to jail... I am actually surprised she is... I'm surprised money didn't buy her way out of it... At least not yet... And remember, this whole thing could last years she could end up going to jail for this years later (I went FOUR years, after the fact with no other trouble or charges... right to a speedy trial?) Anyway... so yes Paris Hilton should go to jail if we are grading on the scale that everyone is equal but OJ bought is way out of a murder rap which is what I would have expected to happen with Paris...

Return of the old template but cooler

The new template was short lived I prefer this one... It isn't exactly the same I made some cool changes and I am pretty happy about the search engine. I have also been looking for a way to post comments from my page instead of the pop up... I did find a way had it all set up... just to find out that it doesn't work anymore.... now that Blogger has switched its format... they prevent that type of posting... I am however a bit confused everyone is talking about the new blogger and all this new code... I haven't seen it... nothing has changed for me here... there are no new features or anything that I see... I have switched to logging in using my Google account and that's about the extent of it... obviously I do not use bloggers HTML templates so that I have to assume is part of the reason i haven't seen any new code but I don't know I don't see any new features what so ever... not that I need any... All I really want is expandable comments for my main page which I will find some hack eventually... The problem is that everyone that is doing the hacks are changing to the new code and I am not rewriting this again no way... Unless I screwed something up because my Main page hasn't archived in quite sometime... lol... just have to wait and see on that one... Anyway this is the last of the boring computer posts... I'll be ranting again soon I am sure...

"This site best viewed" update

  • "the website a slave to the viewers resolution"
  • FIXED (sort of) transparent gifs and flash backgrounds fixed this, it still changes due to resolution but looks fine at 1024x768 and above... and doable at 800x600.
  • "can see the square on the guys hand"
  • FIXED transparent gif... DUH

Everything I wanted to do is pretty much done... Looking at it now I know my other one was more classy... But this one is fun... I don't know I will keep this one a while but may change back eventually... I spent about 2 days trying to figure out how to make a search engine just for my site without the regular amenities.. eg. .cgi bin etc.... The answer was obviously in JAVA but I had a hell of time getting it to work... Finally it is done.... And for all of you that know... The answer is in the index... That's the toughest part... The script is relatively simple but the index takes some time... After a few days of searching... There is help out there that makes it painless... When you finally find it.

This site best viewed at 1024 x 768

All right I am almost finished with my new format... of course I have had some problems... and the fact that the way the website looks is a slave to the way the viewer has their screen resolution is disturbing... I hate sites that have the title of this blog on their site.. it seems so cheesy... I am looking for a javascript that will detect the viewers screen size and adjust the page accordingly... the closest thing I have found is a java script that detects the screen resolution and forwards you to a separate page that I would have to optimize for their screen... but that just won't work with this whole blogging thing... I have found this but have yet to understand it... If anyone else can and help me out that'd be cool. Also a few other things... my first attempt at the flash movie of the guy writing came out visual perfect but the background was backwards and it was too fast.... Now the background is the right way but you can see the square on the guys hand... Now looking back I should have done it in yellow and made it a post it note... maybe I'll redo it some other time... I'll be making changes I am sure periodically... Anyway I hope you like it... let me know...
