"Value Voters," indeed...

From someone in the alt.quotations Usenet newsgroup, responding to a pharmacist from England who was visiting the U.S., "sipping bourbon and toasting Dubya": is too bad that your wife did not meet some, uh, Bush supporters in a washroom. She may have been able to get Bill O'Reilly's phone number for some stimulating talk. Then Bill could have set you up to meet the great Rush Limbaugh himself- I know he would trade you some fine Cuban cigars for a few of your pills. Then Rush could introduce you to Newt Gingrich, and you could do a little group orgy with whatever tart he happens to be with at the moment. Then off to Vegas in a private jet to do a little "speculating" with William J. Bennett.... Nothing is impossible in the land of opportunity!

I was voter number 54 at my polling place in Pennsylvania at 7:45 this morning. The missus, who's a former poll worker, recalls elections when the total for the entire day was less than 50.

It's going to be interesting.

Quote of the day

"In our system, at about 11:30 on election night, they just push you off the edge of the cliff and that's it. You might scream on the way down, but you're going to hit the bottom, and you're not going to be in elective office."

And just imagine what it does for your teeth!

"The properties of (Coca Cola) have been discussed for years. It has been reported that it is a fine lavatory cleaner, a good windscreen wipe and an efficient rust spot remover."

Uncorroborated reports from China claimed that the ill-fated New Coke was widely used in China as a spermicide.

It's worthless

It's getting to the point where the amount of effort required to receive e-mail makes it pretty much useless.

According to the statistics in my spam filter, in the past 69 days I've received 37,444 e-mails- about 545 a day- of which 90 percent are junk. That's up from an average of 445 a day since May.

My wife and mother, whose accounts I also filter, are even worse off. 98% of the mail sent to their accounts are pure junk.

It's reached the point where I pretty much mark all incoming mail as junk, except for addresses that I've whitelisted. And even then, I still get nailed by miscreants who spoof legitimate addresses in order to get past my defenses.

And then there's the time I have to spend to review the junk to make certain something of import hasn't been accidentally misclassified.

Rule of thumb... if I don't respond to your email within a day, call me. Sorry it's come to that, but life is short and I'm not wasting my time wading through Viagra and Rolex spam any more.

At a Halloween party she saw a group of people standing around a tub of water and asked what they were doing. When she was told they were ducking for apples, she noted sadly, "There, but for a typographical error, is the story of my life."

So there.  
The e-mail address is now something other than saga. used to be until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up and adopting created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the domain name in 1993, and had since that time used as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that was no longer but rather which is longer than and more letters to type than and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than but actually just as functional as I sent e-mails from the address to just about everybody I knew who had used in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that no longer is the they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
