Its so veryvery sad...

atomox's webhost is down. And since he was kind enough to let me use his unlimited space/bandwith, that was where I was posting my memes and other stuff worth seeing. LCC was there.

But what makes it veryvery sad is that I created a new meme, and this one's actually decent. Unfortunately, I can't share it with you. Unless someone knows of some decent free webspace that can handle perl scripts? Hrmmmm? Anyone?

I've got the t3knomeme script tweaked out so that a new meme can be banged out in just a few minutes. Sure, there are four files that need to be created to get the script to work, but for the most part, renaming existing files is enough. In fact, I'm thinking that in the next iteration, seperate files per meme might be done away with and then its just a matter of creating the memefile. A flat text file with a list of possible responses.

That reminds me, I have a CGI question. I have a CGI query object, $query. I'm using $query->start_html(-title=>$title, -style=>$stylesheet); where $stylesheet contains the stylesheet. I've tried several versions of calls to that, passing the stylesheet file name, using a sub method src, all sorts of stuff. Does anyone know how to get the start_html method to actually generate stylesheet information? That'd be really nice.

Speaking of things that suck, the rear brakes on my car have locked closed. Which is going to mean going over there with the Chilton's Manual and having fun with something I know nothing about, so that I can sell the feking car.

Have I mentioned I hate cars?

Stan's Soapbox...

One of the things we try to demonstrate in our yarns is that nobody is all good, or all bad. Even a shoddy supervillain can have a redeeming trait, just as any howlin' hero might have his nutty hangups. One of the greatest barriers to real peace and justice in this troubled world is the feeling that everyone on the other side of the idealogical fence is a "bad guy". We don't know if you're a far out radical, or Mr. Establishment himself - if you're a black militant or a white liberal - if you're a pantin' protest marcher or a jolly John Bircher - but, whatever you are, don't get bogged down by kindergarten labels! It's time we learned how fruitless it is to think in terms of us and them - of black and white. Maybe, just maybe, the other side isn't all bad. MAybe your own point of view isn't the only one that's divinely inspired. Maybe we'll never find true understanding until we listen to the other guy; and until we realize that we can never marche across the Rainbow Bridge to true Nirvana - unless we do it side-by-side.
