My Tao of Blogging

Filed under: Humor, Life, Philosophy, Reading — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 5:27 PM (17:27)

Current mood: cranky

How many different blog services are out there?! So far, I’m on Yahoo, but I haven’t used that one much at all because Yahoo! 360 sucks. Myspace [1] is my default one right now, and while I do have a LiveJournal one, I haven’t used it much. I do maintain a Yahoo email list as an email blog, which works really well for me.

Usually when I set one up, I leave the appearance settings alone — white background, black text, etc. I know that some may consider it “boring,” but so what? I was on dial-up[2] for what seems like forever, and all of the stuff that people think looks “hot” (I think it looks like shit) eats up download time like crazy for those of us on dial-up. Y’all know what I’m talking about — the multi-colored / graphic / backgrounds, the animated stuff, the videos that start playing as the page is loading, etc., etc.

Then there’s the morons who put up a page where the text is the same color as the backgrounds. That kind of stupidity deserves its own paragraph. What can I say about them that isn’t self-evident?

Other thoughts: I have NO sympathy for those that use “text lingo” in their blog posts and web pages, etc. I can put up with stuff like “lol” “ty” “how r u” “yw” in email messages (I’m guilty of that myself a bit!  and while chatting (especially in chat rooms), but for blogs and websites?! Give me a break!

I’m not at all impressed with those who swear all the time, especially those who drop “F-bombs” like a B-52 carpet-bombing North Vietnam. C’mon folks — the more you use profanity, the less effect it has each time you use it. Especially the word “fuck” (which I agree is extremely versatile).

The absolute worst are the people who TyPe LiKe ThIs — WhAt Is ThE FuCkInG PoInT of that?

Finally, would it really do any harm for all of these people to learn some modicum of spelling, grammar, or capitalization — you know, proper English? (ALL-CAPS and all-lower-case gets old in five minutes. PLEASE learn to use the [Shift] key. For me? Please?)


NOTES

  1. This was originally written in October, 2006 — I’ve since switched to blogging here.
  2. I was on dial-up from 1988 until the middle of 2005, and I never got close to 56K on Zianet — I was lucky to get 28.8K – usually I got 24-26K. Flashnet (since bought out by Prodigy, last I heard), NMIA and Qwest (before their internet service was taken over by MSN) were about the same. GRRRR. If you’re paying for 56K, then you should get 56K (or at least close to 56K). Prodigy and Compuserve were trash too, but that was the days before the web and inter-ISP email. Compuserve once changed the dialing number without telling me, and also changed my password without telling me. Nice job, people! Earthlink insisted that I use their proprietary browser and email client. Luckily, I had all of my bookmarks and email backed up. So far, I have no complaints about Comcast’s service — most of the problems I have there concern the wireless connection between this laptop and the router that’s connected to the cable modem.

My Heartfelt Appreciation

Filed under: Fun, Humor, Life — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 5:02 PM (17:02)

Current mood: amused

My heartfelt appreciation goes out to all of you who have taken the time and trouble to send me “forwards” over the past 12 months. Thank you for making me feel safe, secure, blessed, and wealthy.

Extra thanks to whoever sent me the one about rat crap in the glue on envelopes cause I now have to go get a wet towel every time I need to seal an envelope.

Also, I scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason.

Because of your concern I no longer drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains.

I no longer drink Pepsi or Dr Pepper since the people who make these products are atheists who refuse to put “Under God” on their cans.

I no longer use Saran wrap in the microwave because it causes cancer.

I no longer check the coin return on pay phones because I could be pricked with a needle infected with AIDS.

I no longer use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day.

I no longer go to shopping malls because someone might drug me with a perfume sample and rob me.

I no longer receive packages from nor send packages by UPS or FedEx since they are actually Al Qaeda in disguise.

I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a number for which I will get a phone bill with calls to Jamaica, Uganda, Singapore, and Uzbekistan.

I no longer eat KFC because their “chickens” are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes or feathers.

I no longer have any sneakers — but that will change once I receive my free replacement pair from Nike.

I no longer have to buy expensive cookies from Neiman Marcus since I now have their recipe.

I no longer worry about my soul because at last count I have 363,214 angels looking out for me. Thanks to you, I have learned that God only answers my prayers if I forward an e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes.

I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl who is about to die in the hospital (for the 1,387,258th time).

I no longer have any money at all, but that will change once I receive the $15,000 that Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their special email program.

Yes, I want to thank you so much for looking out for me that I will now return the favor!

If you don’t send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in the next 7 minutes, a large pigeon with a wicked case of diarrhea will land on your head at 5:00 PM (CDT) this afternoon. I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of my next door neighbor’s ex-mother-in-law’s second husband’s cousin’s beautician.

‘Fraid to Fly?

Filed under: Life, Philosophy, Politics, Quizzes / Surveys, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:58 PM (16:58)

Current mood: aggravated

> since i am a pilot i have a question ………….who is afraid to fly …..and why ?
> if you do not fly …….what method do you use trains .bus ……or your personal auto?

I’m not afraid to fly. I rather like it, in fact. It’s quick and fun.

HOWEVER . . .

I am averse to what’s available these days for “commercial aviation” :

From the Wiktionary entry on “averse”:

1.1 Adjective –
1. Turned away or backward.
2. Having a repugnance or opposition of mind; disliking; disinclined; unwilling; reluctant.

No.2 is the operative definition here. I find the common practices of commercial airline companies repugnant and so I am disinclined to use their services. Those practices include:

Overbooking

Breaking up parties – I’ve always ended up with total strangers who couldn’t SHUT THE FUCK UP to save their own lives.

The shitty selection of music available on the earphones they provide.

The way they let people bring way more than the limit on board — then those people insist on using YOUR overhead compartment.

The ever-worsening searches that did NOT stop the al-Qaeda terrorists on 11 Sept 2001.

I will fly with the first airline that allows me to board the plane with one of my Glock pistols worn openly visible on my belt. I have no problem with the ticket-counter people insisting that I use Mag-Safe or Glaser ammo – it is their plane, after all.

Adding the Complaint Department

Filed under: Events, Friends, Fun, Media — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:37 PM (15:37)

Current mood: jubilant

KCUF Media is proud to announce our latest division — the Complaint Department.

This will be staffed by all of the morons who call in to The Weekly Sedition and New Mexico’s Consumer Advocate (or any other show KCUF is involved in) to threaten the hosts, guests or producer, or to call us four-letter words.

We reserve the right to publish any and all personal information from such I.D.I.O.T.s (Individuals Devoid of Independent and Objective Thought), including but not limited to phone numbers, email addresses, or pictures.
