Archived News for the Month of July 2005

News of the Day

 

7-29: A new graphic goes up on the High School Art page. This is a picture of what I'm sure all of you guys ran into at one time or another. A gigantic hulking fat guy who was so big for his age he had no social skills as none were required to wade through a crowd of munchkins. See it now in the Art Portfolio in the Hobbies department.

7-28: I found a good article about protein folding called "A Fix for Faulty Proteins" that I have added to my Team Crunchinator pages. Look for a link for it there, right now there is just one article but there will be more when I find them. Eventually the page will be gussied up some, making it look like more of an effort. This is all going down in the Hobbies department.

7-27: The NRA Archive is updated today with the monthly NRA page features for July: Armed Citizen, Standing Guard, and The President's Column. Each of these features are valuable, information packed columns that you will find extremely helpful and interesting even if you are not a firearms owner yourself. For one, it keeps you apprised of the relative honesty and the intentions of the politicos you vote for. For another, it shows you the value of owning your own firearm for protection, recreation, hobby, business, and because for now anyway... you can. The Archives are available any day of the month from the NRA page in the Extra department, look for the link down at the bottom of the table of contents.

7-26: Well, this is Tuesday so it must be HTML 4.01 Transitional day right? Right you are! Today the High School Art page gets the honors. You can view this page and all the stupid adolescent malarkey on it over in the Art Portfolio section of the Hobbies department.

7-25: Looks like Termie is not letting up in his powerhouse effort to make up for time lost during the dark ages of using the slower CPU to crunch Folding@home data. Team Crunchinator is up this week by a tenth of a percent. View the progress and some interesting folding facts over in the Hobbies department. Tell 'em Termie sent you.

7-22: Head on over to the Joke of the Weak and have a laugh courtesy of the House of Wacks. The Joke of the Weak is updated each weekday morning at around 6AM PST. You should laugh at least 3 times a day, doctors orders!

7-21: I found another missed page in the HTML 4.01 Transitional conversion. This is another Art Portfolio offering, the College Art page over in the Hobbies department. It is fixed today and ready for viewing by the discerning artist or other mentally deranged individuals.

7-20: "Appointments to the Supreme Court will be the pivotal battle that wins or loses the war over the Second Amendment in America. And it is a battle that we must win!" These are the words of NRA president Sandra S. Froman from her feature article in the American Rifleman magazine. This article is reproduced here for your education and enlightenment via The President's Column in the NRA section of the Extra department.

7-19: While messing with the Contemporary Art page in the Art Portfolio section of the Hobbies department Friday, I noticed that I had missed converting that page over to HTML 4.01 Transitional when I did the other pages in that department. Today, that gets rectified. My card reads, "Have rectum, will travel".

7-18: OK, now we are cooking again at Folding@home. We have bumped our standing into the 84 percentile rating this week as well as clobbering 44 fellow competitors. It's good to have the CPU upgrade. It'll be better having the new computer next month though! View if you will this weeks standings at the Team Crunchinator page in the Hobbies department.

7-15: Are you ready for something pathetic to start your weekend with? Something that will make you feel so much better about yourself and your abilities that you will be able to leap over the next obstacle gazelle like? Try taking a gander at the "Marty's Coupon" on the Contemporary Art page of the Art Portfolio in the Hobbies department. See, you aren't THAT bad after all. Look down upon me and feel elite. This has been a public service sponsored in conjunction with the House of Wacks and the League of Hairy Legged Women.

7-14: You are not going to care about this one either. I have brought another minor page used as a popup window example into HTML 4.01 Transitional compliance. It's a little page called AlertTest.html and unless you were big into the PopUp Window Tutorials in the Web Building department you would never have seen it. Still it needs a fixin' if it is to be apart of this web site.

7-13: "Never forget that the Brady idea of Utopia is Great Britain, where the disarmed populace is subject to prosecution for any form of self-defense." Read up on Florida's "Castle Doctrine" law expanding the right of good citizens to use lawful force to defend themselves and their families and the Brady opposition to such basic common sense. Check out the Standing Guard feature in the NRA section of the Extra department.

7-12: You're not going to care about this one. I have brought a minor page used as a popup window example into HTML 4.01 Transitional compliance. It's a little page called Blather.html and unless you were big into the PopUp Window Tutorials in the Web Building department you would never have seen it. Still it needs a fixin' if it is to be apart of this web site.

7-11: Hmmmm... Isn't this the anniversary of when the terrorists drove a Greyhound bus into a Quickie-Mart? I should never have gone camping, not only did I miss a day, my jokes blow worse than usual. K, it's a Monday and that means a Folding@home update, you can visit the Team Crunchinator page in the Hobbies department and see how we kicked the hindquarters of 43 competetors up between their ears.

7-7: Happy Bungie Day! (If you don't know what I'm talking about then never mind, it would take too long to explain the conspiracy.) In other news the News Archives gets the HTML 4.01 transitional conversion. This was from the ground up as it somehow fell through the cracks when I first went through the website converting everything over. Now it is up to code and ready for inspection!

7-6: "Armed Citizen" is an article in the "American Rifleman" very similar to one of my favorite feature articles in "Guns & Ammo" called "Armed Response". These articles consist of short accounts describing the use of firearms by private citizens to protect lives and property. These are the stories that the mainstream media ignore because they are not so much interested in presenting the truth as much as they are interested in furthering their anti-gun agendas. Some very interesting reading here. It's going on in the NRA section of the Extra department.

7-5: Hope you had a great Forth of July yesterday. I did, that's why there is only the Joke of the Weak for today.

7-4: Team Crunchinator is back in the saddle this week with a full week of CPU upgraded number crunching. We have gained back 16 places in the team standings with an improvement of approximately one tenth of a percent putting our ranking at 83.7263% of the users. Check out this protein shredding carnage at the Team Crunchinator page in the Hobbies department.

7-1: Termie, the House of Wax "Expediter" (muah hahahahaaaaa), fresh from his 2 weeks of computer downtime, hardware failures, and software boondoggles is back in force for the month end turn around. Now rabidly frothing at the mouth from a month of frustrations, Termie wields his bullwhip with a powerful vengeance that has been known to slice a House of Wacks worker completely in half. Therefore, Termie has produced a month end turnaround in record time. Congratulations Termie! House of Wacks workers will he happy to hear that we will be providing vinegar and butcher paper to treat your whip wounds in the employee break room. The Joke of the Weak is updated, go have your laugh for the day.


No news on the weekends. The Joke of the Weak is updated every weekday. As usual, the Team Crunchinator page is updated every Monday. The NRA pages: President's Column, Standing Guard and Armed Citizen are updated each month.
