ASAP A Stand Against Pop-under Ads
The head lemur doesn't like banner ads, smart tags, Gator or X10. Neither does Joe.
Put one on your site today!
My name is Joe Jenett. As an individual who is sick at heart over the use of Pop-under advertising on the web, I have decided to take a stand. I'll stand alone if I have to, but I have a feeling that many people who live on the web as I do agree that this new type of Internet advertising is invasive, offensive, and downright unfriendly to users.
Add My Name to the list Joe!!
A New Customer Service Benchmark
I would like to thank Qwest for buying so many of those Cisco 675 and 678 DSL routers to help spread the Code Red Virus in the Southwest.
Oh yeah, the E-MAIL to your DSL customers was an especially nice touch.

Gee Murray, What part of owning a phone company and just giving these folks a CALL is so hard to understand?
Exercise Freedom Of Speech! Go to Jail!!
The saga of Dmitry Skyarov has taken a turn for the worse. He has been indicted by a Federal Grand Jury. He will be the first to be prosecuted under the anti-circumvention section of the Digital Millennium Copy Act.
As is typical in every indictment they have tossed in every charge they could think of. One count of 'conspiracy to traffic', Two counts of 'trafficking in technology primarily designed to circumvent technology that protects a right of a copyright owner', Two counts of 'trafficking in technology marketed for use in circumventing technology that protects a right of a copyright owner'. You and I will probably be next. Discussing anti-circumvention technologies is illegal under the DCMA.

My name is the head lemur and I am a recovering Source Code Thief!
I started in 1994 with my first internet connection. Netscape and Internet Explorer gave me the ability to peek behind the scenes. I thought that View Source would take me to the First Page of the Internet. It didn't.
