Well this is quite interesting. I guess there must be a god, and microsoft must own his ass. I
babbled almost incoherently about microsoft yesterday, and though my site still has not been found
by search engines, and according to my stats has only been viewed by three people, I am having
some really strange issues with the content that I posted yesterday.
Of course there is no way this has anything to do with microsoft, it is just a slap of
Karma I guess. Well, not even that, as it turns out, I had somehow managed to save an html file as a unicode text
document by mistake. So much for conspiracy theories or divine retribution.
I am curious to know how long it will take fot the search engines to find the site. I don't really
know how they work or how often they update, but it would be nice if I were to search for a string
of text, that I put in with the intention of getting hits, to show my site in the results. Why else
would I have made reference to free live streaming animal sex videos? I clearly have no intention
of putting anything like that on this site...at this point...
On a completely different subject. If there is anyone out there who happens to be digging through
these old updates at any point, and you can answer for me a question I would appreciate it. I
have a floppy disk that has several witles stories and a couple of horror stories on it. I put
it into the drive -after it had done nothing but collect dust for years- and read/edited the
stories, then saved them back to the disk. Every file opened perfectly, they saved no problem.
Yet, the next day when I put the disk in it says the device is not accesible. It still spins
freely, there is no hang-up with the sliding silver part, I didn't spill any maple syrup on it, what
could have happened to it in the fourteen hours between it working and not working? That may be
On to various musings about site creation. Yesterday's update was the worst ever. That is not
really saying much when there are only like five altogether, but I think I set the bar so low
that I may never be able to reach that level of absolute crap again, that is of course debatable.
My only solace is the fact that I am the only one in the entire world who actually read it. So
I guess what I am saying is that the purpose of this site is so that I can post absolute crap that
no one except me ever reads. That would make a hell of a mission statement then, wouldn't it?
I am going to create a page to link to from the rent sign on the sidebar. I had never seen anyone
put up anything like that on the internet (the rent sign) so I want to have a page there just
in case anyone is actually curious enough to click through and see if it is legit. I really
doubt anyone will actually click it, so I am thinking of making the page it links to just a humorous
type thing. Possibly offering to put there ad there for a penny per second, just to see if anyone
realizes that that is like 864 dollars a day. Or maybe even just go for the gusto and just offer
to put an ad there for a Million dollars per month (with the fine print saying 2 year minimum contract).
I don't really think it even matters what I put there, it seems to me that the only effective
internet marketing is for porn, and I wouldn't want to put myself in the position where it was
necessary to actually have a link to some strange porn page on my site. Now if that was a voluntary
link that would be completely different. But I am quite sure that if I tried to use my 'rent
box' legitimately that it would result in nothing but porn. Of course that is all very far down
the road, like when there are more readers than just me. It is just fun to toy with concepts while
the site is all so fresh and new.
I think that may also be the reason that these updates are just so rambling and incoherent. There
are so many things that I want to get to, and so little time to do it. I, of course, don't keep
notes relating to any ideas that I may have, so that leaves me just babbling about it here, when
if I just started doing whatever the idea was I would probably have it completed by now. It is
strange how that works. Even stranger is why I continue to do these updates when I know that no
one else is reading them.
I guess that is just about enough babbling for today. I still hope to get another witles story
posted today, as well as completing the for rent page.
