I used my $12.25 "credit" for the invite codes to renew my paid membership up to May 15,2004..."lost" $2.25 in the deal...but, oh well....

Annoyances.com, .org, .net, .us,.gov,.tv,.info, .dot....

I've just been browsing some random online personal websites I've never visited before, and I've occassionally stumbled across what I consider to be a couple of the most annoying things someone could have on their site...

1) Excessive Pop-ups: Although I have a browser with built in pop-up control and don't see the pop-ups, I know they are there, according to the "blocked pop-ups" indicator in the lower right hand corner, it has blocked 27 in the past half hour from those various sites.

2)Background Music: Another bad idea in my opinion for personal websites. If I want to hear music, I'll turn on my stereo, or go to a music site. Most of the time, those people who embed music into their page have it at too high a decible level, and it nearly blasts me out of my chair!

And, the sites with BOTH are a double threat!

Coolness???

Digging in the family "archives", found this picture from August 1962...



From left to right: My uncle Floyd, my mom, my uncle Bill.

Was my uncle Floyd trying to be too "cool" at the time, or what?
