Let It Ride
Just finished (pending approval) my next piece for a series of gambling information websites. Check it out
....I think it's my best of the series so far.

A while ago....I guess a little before X-mas...I finally gave in to the hype surrounding Worlds of Warcraft
. Despite the fact that I generally do not like those types of games. I can't tell you what's fun about it, but I just look forward to playing it.
My friend at work has spent the last two days feverishly searching for a copy of his own. No stores have them in stock...not even Fry's (which was where I eventually found my copy). I've heard that Blizzard is actually withholding sales of the software because it's servers are maxed out. He's actually on ebay right now stareing down the barrel of a 20 dollar mark up.
By the way, my Links
section is updated...You might just be shackled to baditude now.

"When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it"
When I web browse or surf or whatever, I work a lot with the ol' address bar. I don't know why I like the extra work of typing in my favorite places (rather than using "my favorites")but I do. One of the things that really gets on my nerves though is when a website somehow takes a popular website, than switches a letter or two around to trick you into going somewhere you never intended. Like "www.yaoho.com".
There is a Bible website that I always stumble onto when typing in the address to various blogspot blogs (blogPSot.com). I find this one to be particularly annoying since I feel like there are a bunch of Christians out there trying to trick me into believing in Jesus. As if faith could be discovered in much the same way as stubbing your toe, or falling for a poker bluff.
I also find it hypocritical. I think it's deceitful, and sort of mean. It's certainly not very honest. I think it goes against good Christian values. I got fed up today and actually wrote them an email. Which I'm sure will accomplish nothing except bring some sweet Christian spam to my junkmail address.
The whole senario reminds me of the "Calvin at the Cross"
stickers. These too are totally at odds with Christian values since the stickers are using a stolen, and unlicensed image -- The intellectual property that belongs to Bill Watterson. I need some little card that I can put on the windshield of peoples cars who display that sticker that says something like, "I didn't realize Jesus was a big advocate of theft." or something.
