Kosmo Systems Inc, along with Ashley IT are proud to present their spam detection service called SimpleFilter. It is so simple, there is absolutely no software to install and it works with virtually any email client on any operating system. Checkout www.simplefilter.com
Interesting idea for encoding email addresses displayed on webpages to prevent the spam harvestors from scraping (until of course they figure it out).

All I can do is laugh. Ha ha ha ha ha.
More than a year ago I choked over and over again when discussing advertising rates with AOL. They played the bully. We were nothing to them. We should have felt so privileged just to be able to talk to them. We should be kissing their feet. Bullshit. I wouldn't have paid $.0000000000001/CPM never mind whatever absolutely ridiculous amount they wanted. We ended up paying them zippo. Not a single dime. We told the bully what to go do with their banners.
So its no surprise to me and I feel good seeing the bully being knocked down a few billion pegs.
Go Go Go, rev up that online ad sales guys, thats really going to help, trust me!!!

I'm so excited. I was just issued my first US Patent. Patent #6,373,244 is an "Apparatus for scraping a surface indicating elements located inwardly of the surface". Or in laymans terms, transverse asswiping.
Basically what this all means is people need my permission to wipe their ass. So please, the next time you wipe your ass, leave a quarter in a jar beside the toilet. We'll be around to collect those jars on a monthly basis. We have estimates on how many times a person wipes their ass a day and we have no problem taking people to court who may try to scam the system.
Boy, someone beat me to this patent. US Patent #6,368,227. Amazing what similar minds can think up while sitting around.

It seems like I'm on the exact same track as Eric Costello. He explains that he's at a crossroads in his development life. He can take the .NET road or the PHP, JSP, Cocoon, MySQL road.
I'm pretty much at the same stage except that I've taken one step down the PHP and MySQL road and haven't considered bothering with .NET until I read this. It may be time to give it a chance even though I'm already breaking away from the evil empire!!
I've been using Groove now for at least 6 months on projects with team members working remotely. It has helped tremendously to keep all the discussions/communications/files etc. in a central location. Gone are the days of filing away email in some lame folder structure in the hopes of being able to find some related project item easily enough.
I can't believe though that they still haven't added a SEARCH feature to Groove. Come on Ray, what can it take to add search?

We have a number of BlogChat beta users just coming online now. The list is on the right here under beta blogchatters along with an indicator whether they are online or not. If they are online you can click on their name to join their chat. No special anything required, just the plain old browser you're using to view this page.
If you are interested in beta testing blogchat yourself just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll send you a couple lines of HTML and you can have a blogchat popup link (like I have) or an embedded chat right in your webpage (see Brents). Nothing special required on your end. Go for it, it takes about 2 minutes to get running.
