It is my pleasure to inform you that you are being considered for inclusion into the 2009-2010 Princeton Premier Business Leaders and Professionals Honors Edition section of the registry.
Ah, yes–good old 737311, the pride of my company.
Entrepreneur, head of state, diplomat, conductor, feted author, professor, and managing editor of over 36 national newspapers, 737311 has, at the mere age of 32, saved the nation from drought, hunger, civil war, and scabies–and yet she works humbly and tirelessly alongside people like me, encouraging and inspiring her cubicle-dwelling employees to reach new heights in their careers, personal lives, and spiritual pursuits.
Small wonder she should be considered for this most prestigious of publications! Where do we purchase our copy?
Once again it's Go Daddy to the rescue.
Today I logged in to manage some domains, and was promptly alerted to a once-in-a-lifetime domain name opportunity that was just minutes away from slipping forever from my grasp.
Um, thanks for bringing that to my attention, guys.
On a decidedly more appealing note, they also insist that I am going to have an opportunity to watch Danica Patrick take a shower. I'm not sure how that works, but I'm certainly up for it. (Huh huh. He said he's up for it.)
This morning I visited the popular Internet domain registrar GoDaddy.com. There I was informed of the fast-disappearing opportunity to purchase the domain name retard-monkey-fish-squirrel.info. At a whopping $15, they were charging a large premium (percentage-wise) over their usual registration fee. Clearly there is a massive scramble for this one. Ahem.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll be viewing those revealing SI photos of Danica Patrick.
This may fall into the well-duh-what-did-you-think-was-going-to-happen category, but Vox parent Six Apart has sold LiveJournal to SUP.
To my mind, the main (possible) justification for Six Apart to go on owning both Vox and LJ was the different user base each service brought to the table. Evidently SA is finding more than enough to go on here.
I changed my URL.
I have been pondering this decision for a long time. This is my way. Do not interfere with the protracted mullings of The Scott. To do so is to bring unhappiness upon your people and livestock. Or maybe just to vaguely annoy me.
The old URL should still work, for the nearly three of you who have pointed links to me.
The first person who understands why I chose the new URL wins…um, nothing, except my undying admiration. (Admiration only undying for 15 to 20 minutes except where prohibited by law. Some restrictions may apply. All entries become the property of Burger King and its affiliates. For tax consequences, consult your financial professional. Prize contains small parts and is not for children under 3. Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball.)
I also set up a LiveJournal account, mostly so I could leave non-anonymous comments and check out the feature set.
Made some music with the Rubrick yesterday. Good to find my fingers still work. Even better to find my antiquated gear still works. I'm thinking of setting up an old PC and getting some simple recording done. This has been the subject of very great mulling and protractedness indeed. Onward! Or something.
So, I happened upon the web site gods4suckers.net, and it occurred to me: might religious parties have snapped up similar domain names in an effort to undermine the spread of blasphemy? Curious, I typed in godis4suckers.com, and was immediately rewarded with:
Ahem. Yes, that pretty much sums up my top ten list for the day.
(On my way out, a pop-up beseeched me to look into additional categories including "government grants," "make my dick bigger," and "immigration to Canada.")
