Just had a nice dinner at Cafe 668 with Derek… And later tonight my Corvette will be here! Woo woo! It's coming out of winter storage, at least that's one thing I like about summer. My sister on the other hand is not thrilled I'm sure — up until today she was the 18 year old girl driving an overpowered sidepiped 74 Vette.

Oh, I wanted to mention something else about tracking/userview logging. Iam.code is not the only way to do it. There are lots of online counters and javascript tricks that can track not just your username but your IP number and what users page you viewed before the current one, etc… So there are two ways that I could handle tracking:

  • Decide it's “against the rules” and add it to the TOS. Then I could write a filter that stopped people from using Javascript of ANY kind, as well as killing off iam.code, and removing custom layout (since you could make it generate an undetectable Javascript module). However, a clever person could easily bypass this… Which would mean that “honest” users couldn't do it, but any sneaky supervillian could.
  • Allow it, and make it so blatantly obvious, that because it's no secret, it's harder to abuse. By taking this route, it also allows people to have Javascript, Custom Layout, and iam.code.

So…. Do you still really want to live in boringland?

PS. I'm very sad that Julien aka Martin didn't make the final cut on Popstars. I was rooting for you! (OK, I know it wasn't really Julien, but it reallllly looked like him, especially if you've met Julien in person).

Finally, I know many of you know my friend and business partner Mr. E (no, not that kind of E)… Anyway, he's spending the next two or three months in Central and South America (and is considering buying land in Costa Rica)… He sent me the following pictures before getting on a boat to spend the next week diving in the Galapagos:

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
