Weeeeeeee Dizzy Search! I thought it was funny as hell when I found it at metafilter..Suddenly spending hours searching for a FAQ on sendmail smtp seems like a lot of fun. Shake rattle and roll kids!

Ok, so it only took me ten minutes to post that mail as an article on Adland. :) So shoot me, I didn't think I should first but the whole legal entaglement idea is interesting..

What would you say to this?
I just received an email that reads;

To: dabitch@commercial-archive.com
Subject: A word of caution...

I assume that you have clearances from SAG and AFTRA where applicable for the commercials you are showing on your site.

I am not an actor, and I am not against entertainment, I am not even against commercials as entertainment, but I'm sure you are aware that there is a bitter strike going on by the above mentioned guilds against the advertising industry (and a well-justified strike in my opinion).

I hope that my reservations about your website are unwarranted, but I will be forwarding your webpages to people at the guild for review, nonetheless.

Thought I'd let you know.
Signed with Full Name

Why do I feel like I farm minks or something?

Finally moved the Adlist off the Egroups free server. So far 97 members have gotten their mails OK.
Also rearranged all my links at ad-rag.com. I had 276 of them! I never realised! :))

The film in itself is quite funny. The story behind it is jaw-dropping. Wait, guys, say that again, all SPX on your homecomputers? Three months of renderering?
OOh, ok, you did say that, damn!

Newsflash! Mum didn't ground me. :) She laughed her head off!

Who started that "double-U double-U double-U" thing? And why why why won't it stop???
I print cards with my URL's without the w's, I set my site without the w' (and with, for the people who simply can't do without) and I send out all directions to my site without W's. Yet, people keep using them (as in that article under the link).
Save typing today, stop it! If I see another ad or link on TV with the phrase "go to: www somewhere.com" I'll scream! If you don't mention the http:// anymore, don't mention the W's!

I found the surrealist compliment generator at metafilter, and then I didn't get anything done for the next half an hour.. :9 It's hysterical!
Ceci n'est pas un compliment.

Oh my gawd! I want these shoes BAD! When is X-mas?? And this top -'cept not blue because I hate blue - to go with it! (or not as the case may be).

I wish I could think of something witty right now. All i've been doing is messing with Bind8 lately, and majordomo. And sendmail. Funny things just don't seem to spring to mind then.
Did something at hillergren.com that I'm sure my mum will ground me for. :)) If she could that is. Total vanity page. :)) Hey, why not? There's only 50 billion of them out there. At least my dad Looks pretty hot in his pic.

This kind of stuff never happens in my office. And you should read the comments posted on metafilter. :)

Yeay! Endo-sister Marilyn is on TV with "gentlemen prefer blondes" and I have wisely stocked up on ice-cream and chocolates in the fridge. A few painkillers and several tubs of double-chocolate-fudge later and life seems a whole lot better.

Today I'm popping painkillers and morphine in such quantities that most people would plain pass out. Sure, I'm dizzy. But it only hurts a little now - and a little is still too much. Also, I rebuilt endo.just.nu to take my mind off it, the new version being hidden here, until I can get the password to put it where it belongs. It is not a coincidence. I wish I could have seen the Gay Parade on boats today as the weather is great, but unfortunatly, the pain makes it hard to actually walk. Having endometrioses sucks. Thank god it's saturday, I would probably kill my collegues with a blunt instrument if I had to go to the office today.

It's in the middle of the night when I thought of something funny, I get up and look for dingbats I can use, and thats when my netscape decides to go all weird on me and not display any images... How am I supposed to pick fonts like this? Ya think someone is trying to tell me to sleep?

Rubberburner.com might have had a million fooled. Ben Tech blogging at magnetbox.com (and -funny coincidence, an "a list apart" reader like myself) fell for it. A teabagger poster spotted Curry at Losers.org on the 20th, and fell for it apparantly. And it's debated at metafilter..where Zeldman - the A list apart creator- is a frequent poster. Who said the web was a small world?
