Hit 500 Visitors

Just need 11 more visitors to give my home page 500 visitors.

I really like Site Meter’s site tracker as it even predicts how much traffic I am likely to get based upon the last hour, week, or month results.

Just 5 more visitors to The Fountain of Knowledge to hit 500. Seems the more active I am on email lists the more visitors to my web site. [Editors note: I knew that posting email to mailing lists generates traffic, just did not realize that I could get on average 2-3 visitors per email per day.]

Men are like fine wine

Should I or should I not up up the web cam? Comments welcome in the guestbook or email to me… 🙂

A quote I picked up this weekend…

Men are like fine wine. They all start out like grapes, and it’s up to women to stomp on them and keep them in the dark until they mature into something you’d like to have dinner with

Wish I knew the source… lots of jokes sites have it. Too many without the source to find the few that might.


Due to some email server issues, my home page at this time is not available… Should be back some time this morning.

Everything is cool now… *whew*!

Here is maybe my new favorite site… Science Fiction and Fantasy World with a review of the start of the A Song of Fire and Ice series A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, and A Storm of Swords

This is pretty funny…. A Microsoft Technet entry: HOWTO: RTFM

The spirit and intelligence of man is essential

I’ve typed up a long quote that I really like. The parts best liked are bolded.

Let us now discover more specifically how he [man] is the image and likeness of God and what is the standard or criterion by which he can be measured and estimated. This standard can be no other than the divine virtures which are revealed in him. Therefore, every man imbued with divine qualities, who reflects heavenly moralities and perfections, who is the expression of ideal and praiseworthy attributes, is, verily in the image and likeness of God. If man possesses wealth, can we call him an image and likeness of God? Or is human honor an notoriety the criterion of divine nearness? Can we apply the test of racial color and say that man of a certain hue — white, black, brown, yellow, red — is the true image of his Creator? We must conclude that color is not the standard and estimate of judgement and that it is of no importance, for color is accidental in nature. The spirit and intelligence of man is essential, and that is the manifestation of divine virtues, the merciful bestowals of God, the eternal life and baptism through the Holy Spirit. Therefore, be it known that color or race is of no importance. He who is the image and likeness of God, who is the manifestation of the bestowals of God, is acceptable at the threshold of God — whether his color be white, black, or brown; it matters not. Man is not man simply because of bodily attributes. The standard of divine measure and judgement is his intelligence and spirit.

See the light

Somehow, I guess I do like holding people’s hands and helping them see the light.

*yawn* better go home. Email does not work so I obviously can’t do anything, right? If I go home now, then if it mysteriously comes back I will not have to work?

Nevermind… the web works (reliable, rock-solid [I built it after all] )… means I can do my job, just not let anyone know I am doing it… 🙂

500 plus

Hmmmmmmm… only 44 people short of having 500 visitors to my personal VSU web site. According to SiteMeter’s prediction based upon traffic over the last week I might be able to achieve 500 visitors in a little over a week. Not too shabby I guess.

Guess I should respond more to email lists? Seems like a lot of my hits are people checking out my web site after I answer a question.


Finally got to see Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in Atlanta. Happens that it came here this weekend, but I was in Atlanta not here. Really enjoyed it so I will probably go see it again. Maybe I will take my brother? Riiigggghhhht!

Nothing like being on the interstate weaving in and out of traffic… crossing to lanes to the right, slipping in front of the 2 people going so much slower in the left lanes… I don’t get it, actually… the signs say “SLOWER TRAFFIC KEEP RIGHT”. To me that means that if you are in the left lane and see someone approaching because they are going faster, then you should move over to the right. I understand situations when there is a car to your right or moving over would place you too close to another car, but there were so many cars that were tooling along a 65 mph in a 70 mph zone where I was going 85 with no other cars withing 1000 feet of the car. So I just slipped over into the middle (or in South Georgia the right) lane and passed them without even slowing down. Was that a sign? Nope… I saw in many instances the car stayed in that lane and other drivers had to do the same.

I get the impression that people like the left lane because it is less bumpy. So do I… that is why I drive as fast or faster than the other traffic so that I can be in that lane.

Don’t worry… I am done! Back to being content.


My new business card arrived yesterday…

Should be less overbearing and confrontational. Seems like I am getting into more and more arguments with people over pointless things. Guess maybe it is the old ethics debate over which is better, the end or the means?
