oh, what a blessed curse; to see

How not to treat your customers; because good customer service is rewarded in minor loyalties, and friendly clients, but bad customer service becomes legendary.

aDiva? Just hit the legend mark, strictly and solely because of her indifferent contempt as well as her mistreatment of a customer, up to and including kicking said customer out of her store group (which, by the way, costs L$250 to join in the first place). Way to go.

"Sites that are illegal should be shut down, not censored."

What I want to know is how underground this bill has been for it not to surface until this week. Because I do my best to pay attention to this nonsense, and it slipped right by me.

Of course, I have been sick the past few weeks...

There is a certain layer of cuteness in Minecraft; note well the alternate name for Bedrock, aka that strata beyond which you cannot mine down: it's known as Adminium.

I admit, I'm now contemplating Minecraft. Partially because after September's server crash from the abyss, the developer is tossing up a buy-as-is offer that's on the unbeatable side. $13.69 (or about ten Euros) buys you the glitchy, occasionally bug-ridden alpha client.

When it goes into beta? You get into the beta.

When it goes live? You get a copy of the professional client.

And any time the client updates? You get it.

Basically, it's the cost of a night showing of a 3D movie feature--to have the game in all its incarnations, for as long as it lasts.

That makes it seriously tempting. Even if I can't figure out how to find coal and make fire.

As a native Swede, I am particularly proud of my love poetry suite Sonnets for Katie.

My Poems

My wallpaper art Babes!

The Big Duality, the approximative euivalence of God and Sex. Consider islam. Its interdiction on images. The antiphenomenon of pornography!

My philosophy


And: reciprocity: for mutual benefit, you will do me a favor promoting your own blog on mine!

That has to be in the top 10 for polite and well organized spam. I don't know whether to applaud or facepalm.

I think...both?

And quick, too, I just put this entry up.

I'll leave it up for now, but...wau, that's just...odd.
