Ian, I am off to bed for rest in anticipation of my new job. I will check it in the morning and respond to anything you do during the night. When I get home from work, I will post more, excitedly. Go ahead and invite friends. You certainly have my consent as long as they understand that we are at very early stages. This site will only get cooler and cooler. Thanks again. I love it.

You may find some "Link Rot" tonight. I'll be moving pages and links a little this evening, in particular, the "Post a Message" (http://www.echopraxia.org/oblogitory.html) page will disappear. The "Obligatory" (http://www.echopraxia.org/much_oblogged.html) will stay in the same place, but whenever it gets REALLY long, I'll archive it, with a link to the archived pages. More on this as things move along. RE: What you're doing --- it rocks. after I get things uploaded tonight, I might invite a couple good friends of mine to come and give some feedback on what we're doing. I'll consult with you first by e-mail.

"If it bleeds, it leads", as they say...I'm sure all of us have certain catastrophic images permanently emblazoned on our brain cells -- The Challenger explosion, the WTC crashes, the Zapruder film -- it IS a pity they can't seem to report on anything meaningful, like the real reasons we're pursuing the "war" in Afghanistan, or why we're perpetually losing the "War on Drugs".

Confession:
I did MY part in the war on drugs. Unfortunately, no matter how fast I did them, they just kept coming, and coming....

These rabid reporters are dying to know if the girls were raped and are trying to ask every single question they can to get a hint. It is almost perverse. All day since the rescue, the reporters have been beating around the ***, looking for a clue to sexual assault. It is creepy. One of the girls is a cheerleader and the photo they kept showing was extremly sexualized. America can be so lurid and sick under the guise of concern.

Yup. I'm working on it right now. By the way, did you know you're a moderator? You'll notice a little "Administrator" tag appears next to your posts. If it's cool with you, I'm going to delete all the forums and start fresh with the categories we discussed. I'll do that as soon as I hear back from you, so I know you're not modifying the board at the same time.

No, that's my current apartment. I only put those pictures up to show Lori (who's in Kenya, it's her apartment again if she ever wants it back, and I'm moving next year anyway...) what I had done to the place. It used to have matchstick blinds and nice lamps and didn't look like such a "Richard Gere - American Gigilo - dude I'm such a cool 80's guy let's do some poppers" kind of pad....

Yes, we get very detailed logs for the site. for instance, from March 3 thru March 28, 2002, there were 58 visitors (!). All they saw, I think, was that old black & gray main page, or pictures of my apartment . About the "talkback", the answer is yes, it's next on my agenda, even before finishing layouts and content. I haven't used the particular forum package that I'll be installing before, and inevitably there are bugs as you set these things up.

I must admit I've never heard of either. When were you a kid? I definitely remember "The Prisoner", because I saw it on Canadian TV when it was in its first run. For years I thought I was insane because NO-one new what I was talking about. Now it's almost old hat. The only other British SciFi I ever got into (even as a kid, Space 1999 bugged me) was "Red Dwarf". That reminds me. I should pick up some Vindaloo and a pint and kick back with a few episodes....

Remember "Blake's 7" and "The Tomorrow People?" I used to have dreams as a kid from seeing these two shows on tv and I never knew where they came from. Today, while web surfing, I found out where these hazy dreams came from. Apparently, they are being released on DVD soon? I'm going to have to take that plunge and re-visit the past.

Okay. you probably can't tell I've done anything, but I have, especially on the Film page. I cleaned up a lot of the basic code, and need to start deciding how little sub-headings and sidebars should be inserted. I'm still pondering names for columns and that sort of thing as well. I'll keep you informed.

In the meantime, entertain yourself here. It's a little cryptic, but fun and a little creepy.

Super cool. Now I can replace Moby as the old fart producing hip music. Although I must say it would be way cooler to hang around with Angelo Badalamente or Brian Eno than David Bowie. What a pair of weenies (Bowie & Moby). Hey, that's where Bowie suddenly got that mop of hair! He stole it from Moby!

Hey, what do you think of this color-scheme, anyway? Should we call Christopher Lowell for help?

Just sent you an email with some specific questions, and forgot to include one: Could you send me a list of books you find worth recommending? I have a ton of things to throw in the book section, including my own book, book/movie comparisons (more echopractic behaviour...), thoughts on ebooks and copyrights, as well as an idea for a book written in real-time on line.
