The Red Headed Man

August 31, 2006

Once there was a redheaded man without eyes and without ears. He had no hair either, so that he was a redhead was just something they said. He could not speak, for he had no mouth. He had no nose either. He didn’t even have arms or legs. He had no stomach either, and he had no back, and he had no spine, and no intestines of any kind. He didn’t have anything at all. So it is hard to understand whom we are really talking about. So it is probably best not to talk about him any more.

A Russian avant-garde writer, Daniel Charms had a flair for combining the absurd with the miniature. He wrote tiny ‘incidences,’ parables commenting on daily life in Stalin’s Soviet Union. His writings reflect the constant fear of arrest, hunger, and hopelessness of his times, and are delivered with a deadpan humor impossible to quite describe.

Downloadable Databases

August 27, 2006

Cha-Ching!

Found this great site called Oddity Software that has a large selection of databases that you can purchase and download. The beauty of this site is that the lists are very affordable. If you’ve ever had to buy a contact list or database before these are a fraction of the cost. The other thing is that they have a HUGE selection of categories including lists that you could use to BUILD awebsite around, like “This day in history” or “Music lyrics”.

It’s also nice that they offer the lists in MySQL format along with others, and scripts to get started for the non-programming type.

Armor of God kids pajamas

August 27, 2006

Your children will be eager for bedtime with their Armor of God pajamas to protect them from the beasts under the bed. Just $39.95. From the Armor of God web site:

The Armor of God PJ’s were inspired by a mother reading Ephesians 6:10-18 every night to her daughter to give her a safe and secure feeling in the dark. As they read the scriptures, they put on each spiritual and powerful piece of the Armor of God to keep them safe and peaceful while they slept. At that moment, God gave me the idea how wonderful it would be if all children could have the opportunity to put on a pair of pajamas that symbolized the Armor of God for the same purpose… that with their belief in Jesus and His protection they will feel safe and secure during the night as they sleep. As they dress in the mornings, they should replace them with the spiritual Armor of God to protect them in their daily activities.

Do You VoIP?

August 25, 2006

The latest news says that more and more people are ditching land lines for more popular cell phones. The surge for VoIP is also paving the way for not only cheaper rates, but unlimited long distance.

Voice over Internet Protocol, also called VoIP, IP Telephony, Internet telephony, Broadband telephony, Broadband Phone and Voice over Broadband is the routing of voice conversations over the Internet or through any other IP-based network.

Several companies like Skype allow users to make calls using their computers and several businesses have been successfully using VoIP for years. Now several phone companies are also running VoIP into home to replace land lines. Vonage is an example, and they can charge dirt cheap pricing – the only disadvantage is that you hafta have a DSL or better connection.
