  • In 200 years someone will wonder what the heck AIM was.
    In 2003 I blogged this to AOL Journals: I once had a fellow student give me this aphorism which i really like: the more competencies you have, the more deviancies you are allowed. blogging via im makes it easy to blog and not get really distracted into writing something good. the downside is that it…
  • AOL Journals Closes, Encourages Migration to Blogger.com
    Dear AOL Journals user, As we wrote in an e-mail on Sept. 30, AOL® Journals will permanently shut down on Oct. 31. It’s never an easy decision to shut down a feature, especially one like AOL Journals that some of our members have used for a long time. But with a decline in Journals usage,…
  • Dial-up in the morning
    On Friday, my parents came into town. I’ve been terrifically busy since then. Yesterday we did family racquetball, and then down to Pacific Beach, and then to a Baseball game of my 10 year old cousin Michael. After that we went to Mexican food at Marieta’s in Santee. A very busy day, and I got…

  • Today’s Archaeology: Virtual World

  • Bebe Advertisements Site Updated and Moved.
    One of the most searched for things on this site is for “Bebe Ads.” Some time ago I became, well, obsessed about the wonderful photography contained in bebe ads. I’ve added some new ones, notably of Yamila Diaz, Nina Brosh, and Isabeli Fontana. I’ve also given them a home under the “fansite” directory of this…
  • Book Review from Salon of Dot…
    Book Review from Salon of Dot.con: The Greatest Story Ever Sold: Once it became possible to float a profitless company on the NASDAQ and, with the proceeds, buy your way to respectability (as AOL did most spectacularly in its purchase of Time Warner), you might feel like a loser for not trying yourself. This dread…
  • A native version of the AOL client for Mac OS X has been released…
    A native version of the AOL client for Mac OS X has been released. I also notice on that page that there are different installers for Windows XP vs. Windows 2000. That’s sort of interesting. Anyway, installed the new AOL client on the iBook here which has OSX on it. Why, you ask? Jenny uses…
