the book is all about how we attract what we think about....the contrast in our lives is a clue to start imagining what we want more of and when the thought makes you feel good, that's what begins to show up in your life...
7:56 am

hmmm, sounds intriguing

Is the Hicks book better?
8:01 am

whew! that's impressive for sure!!
10:29 am

10:41 am
Atalante

very easy :) just create an account and start uploading pics!
10:42 am
Babs1

sounds easy...just like googlepages!
10:42 am
Babs1

did you go to art school or self-taught?
10:42 am
Atalante

yup :) dA has its own distinctive style, which is a bit non-intuitive, I think, but you quickly get used to it and its a great site
10:43 am

AT, I like your work
10:43 am

Couldnt see yours Atalante when I tried to open IO just got to deviantart homepage??? I might put some of mine on if it is that easy!!

i got myself a graphic tablet for my development system hoping it would help me draw - instead it helped me draw to the level i could on paper, which isn't enough
10:51 am

if someone can toss a can of paint on a sheet and sell it ... well
10:51 am
hurshy

you only think that because you love hayden
10:51 am
Deeha

not true Hurshy. I was terrible when I started I am not much better now but I call what I do illustration rather than art!!
10:52 am
Atalante

hayden definitely helps! but I drew a Sith recently that wasn't Hayden!!
10:52 am

can i ask you guys something? what IS the point of email spam?? i mean, nobody ever reads it, much less buys anything because of it, right? so why do they waste their time annoying us???
10:54 am

deeha... switch the last two letterss of the french one

who are these people that buy things from spam?
10:56 am

strange silly people
10:56 am

1`Hurshy, I heard a discussion about spam last week. When they send out a million spams and only two people bite, they are ahead
10:57 am
Deeha

Enjoyed the chat this afternoon it gave me sometging to thing about. Back tomorrow
10:57 am
hurshy

i think we should find an empty plot of land and just isolate the spammers and the people who buy from spam on it with an internal only network.
10:57 am
inge

and of course there are alwasy at least two idiots in every million
10:57 am
o-o

Not that long ago, the US feds indicted a spammer ... an agreement was made for a plea that included a fine of several million, which the spammer paid. he now works for a government agency to stop spamming

TrickyRic

when you register your details on some sites, that info is added to a database which gets sold on to direct marketting companies. those companies literally do nothing but spam, yet they can afford the cost of these databases every month or so. they must make a fair profit from spam then...
10:58 am
Atalante

bye Deeha! enjoy the horrible weather we're having!
10:58 am
TrickyRic

note registering to sites is just an example there, data mining is a huge industry
10:59 am
inge

These experts also concluded that there is no way of stopping spam altogether
10:59 am
smooth_pappa

hurshy... I call that place: Nebraska.... Put a big fence around the whole state, and send the spammers there. lol
11:00 am
hurshy

someone should write some software that you can set up so that instead of just blacklisting, you could have a bounceback that fools the spamming email address into thinking that the address they sent it to was invalid - cause if that happens they take it out of their database, right?
11:00 am
TrickyRic

wrong. if any request is sent back, the address is seen as valid
11:00 am
TrickyRic

thats why even enabling the ping daemon can be a security risk
11:01 am
Anniebrook

atalante, just viewed your work and I think it is wonderful...yes, I can feel the dark side..you are very talented
11:01 am
hurshy

well how do they know when an address is invalid? they don't?
11:01 am
pabtrek

an8 please
11:01 am
Dr_God

hurshy- OS X's Mail program has that feature.
11:01 am
hurshy

ooh, it's doc!
11:01 am
inge

the only solution offered by those experts was to have two addresses, one for online purchases, which will get all the spam, and one for private friends, who agree never to give out that address
11:02 am
Atalante

hey dr_g!
11:02 am
o-o

The NY Times online has hired a data collector to find out where you were before going to the paper and where you left to
11:02 am
TrickyRic

in theory no, they don't know when an address is invalid. however in practice it doesn't really matter as the mails are sent direct from an smtp daemon and thus a) takes no time at all, and b) no inbox exists for any errors to return to
11:02 am

many sites do it

Hey, LeslieAnn... just read your profile... I started out as a sports reporter, and years later, ended my newspaper career as the Editor/General Manager! Humor is essential to the wacko element, and necessary to deal with the horrible!

I honestly think that when I was the ME, I worked just as much as wearing the shiny boss hat, plus raising children and studies. You're right, you always look back and say "How on earth did I do it?" But when you're in the trenches, you don't give it another thought.

haha, inge. How do you make it?
1:30 pm
stidmama

It works for our family! :-) a cautionary word though -- if your marzipan comes in a can, use a spoon to pull it out. I sliced my fingers up good trying to just "wiggle" it out yesterday.
1:31 pm
Inge2

around here you buy it in a plastic tube thing. It's weird though, you can buy "almond paste" or "marzipan". Is there a difference?
1:31 pm
FranMag

oh no, inge and inge2 both on...too confusing for me. going to go play sudoku. later everyone!

my raisins get soaked in rum beforehand. Changes the taste I guess, if you skip them. Actually recipe calls for more raisins than anything else. Stid adds dried cranberries and/r cherries.

3:13 pm

Please don't give words away in the log mousey.
3:13 pm

3:22 pm

3:23 pm
Biltong

I remember that mousey. You shouldn't take offence becasue people often shorten babblers names. Mousey is good, anyway :)
3:24 pm
mousey

you remember idoitgang
3:24 pm
Biltong

Yes I remember a time you said you were unhappy because some babblers called you idiot :)
3:25 pm
mousey

no i liked that name
3:25 pm
NatLT

my sister in law is LaslieAnn, and everyone calls her LA, it's just easier to shorten names
3:26 pm
NatLT

you could always insist that when they shorten your name to use gang instead
3:27 pm
mousey

the 1 person that called me that was annie
3:27 pm
NatLT

anniebrook?
3:27 pm
mousey

yep
3:28 pm
NatLT

she is like a 75 year old grandmother, I am sure she didn't mean anything by it
3:28 pm
Biltong

mo, I don't get the fi5. Another clue please?
3:28 pm
mousey

i liked that name
3:28 pm
NatLT

she is a very sweet lady, I am sorry that she hurt your feelings, and I am sure she would be too if she knew it
3:29 pm
NatLT

bittong, ther is one 5 that is like the hi5 and the ti5
3:29 pm
NatLT

and then there is the past tense of the 4
3:29 pm

3:31 pm
NatLT

mousey, you could always change back, and let people know if they want to shorten it not to use idiot, use IG, or gang
3:31 pm
mo

no no no .
3:31 pm
mousey

the reason she didnt know is because she never did and she knew i liked that name
3:32 pm
mousey

the babble lost it i never got it back
3:32 pm
NatLT

I know honey, but when we caht with people on the log we shorten everyone's names to save time, I am sure that is what it was, not that she thought you were stupid, you are obviously a smart kid to be playing this game
3:33 pm
NatLT

Oh, that is too bad
3:33 pm
NatLT

chat* not caht
3:33 pm

yah

When it turns pink, you have two of the same number in either the block, the row, or the column. So, yes, it's wrong.
