HOWTO: RTFM

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

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.

Ever want to know just who is linking to your web site? Well, these tools will tell you…

Popularity by AddMe checks who links to you from Hotbot, AltaVista, and Google.

The WebTrends Network: Site Popularity Check! compares your site to other sites on AltaVista.

Of course there are lots of other sites that do similar things.


Wow… fixing broken links… well, when I can… otherwise informing the owner of the web site… frustrating work…


Got the QuickCam installed once again. Here is the first pic… the view of the office window

Probably was just me, but could not get here yesteday afternoon. Have a new pic available… Pic of my new glasses…

Found the buttons for the Netmind.com service. Like the thought of a service that check for updates for me. Maybe I am a slacker and should do my own checking, but a reminder email helps for some reason… In case you are interested, the service is at http://www.netmind.com/html/webmaster_buttons.html


Remember years ago when this could have been me… Robert Luhn’s “Diary Of A Mad Surfer”


Really enjoyed watching Attila Part 1 last night. Think I will catch part 2 tonight. Romans in heavy armor throwing the pilum, forming shield walls vs the Hun hordes? Maybe I just enjoy swords and armies? Course, I am still salivating over LOTR.


Ah, yeah! Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon finally is going to open everywhere! Guess a movie who has won such laurels is deserving of a national audience? Just looked at the site… who would YOU believe? The web site or the TV commercial? Guess 10 years from now, when the TV is as outdated as the radio, the web site will the authoratative source. Until then I look forward to seeing this martial arts marvel in the theatre… even if I have to go to Tallahassee, FL or another large city to see it.

Content-Type: text/plain

Hmmmmmm…. of course a problem with emails not showing up in an email program would have to be due to people not giving the correct Content-Type header information. I mean, who in their right mind would use “Content-Type: text” when it should be “Content-Type: text/plain” with the charset… doesn’t everyone know that?


The weblog scene seems so crowded… with BloggerDiarylandLiveJournal, community weblogs, social group weblogs, sports weblogs… you name it, I bet there is a weblog for it… I had thought that the weblog is something for individuals, but obviously I was wrong.

In a chat room without anyone I know being there… just kind of lurking while surfing… thinking about updating the web page I have in my handle there… yeah, think I will!


You have to know your password in order to edit your web page… 🙂


This site is now operating under a new name… “Fountain of Knowledge Rants, Raves, and Rhetoric by Ezra”… okay, at first blush it is kind of lengthy, but I feel that is a fairly descriptive name for the site.

Script Kiddies

Got a scare at work… Searching for porn on the school’s search engine puts one of my home pages in the number 2 slot. Turns out I have a link to Furniture Porn.

Yesterday was pretty cool. Gave 3 presentations to some 7th graders for Career Day. A couple of them are really interested in hacking (maybe because I am opposed to hackers). Someone who works to make sure that others cannot hack into a web site probably would not tell you how to do it. Did describe for them some of the attacks and how they did. Asked them lots of questions. Most have computers and know the basics like email and surfing. They just need some help to move into the next step.
