I’m reading Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol. I must have read it hundreds of times when I was a kid. It was a favorite tome. It’s odd to read those lines now as an adult and remember them in their muchness. It’s like going from big to small and back again. It’s all about as curious as it can be.
Check out also this page, with links to Oz, Tarzan, Tom Sawyer, and other fantastic texts.

More than you or I could ever hope to read. 🙂
A ‘Card Catalog’ Follows
info on what’s been up, and lj general information about what’s being done. … all very informative. I wonder how many free days Brad’s given to paid memeber total, now? 🙂
paid folks, click on the link, inthere, and you’ll get 10 days added to your paid time.
turned off new account creation yesterday to stop growth while they worked on things. that should hlep a lot.
hmm… even http://personal.bellsouth.net/~svonberg works.
remote relocators for 10 megs more of free space… maybe I’ll relocate the newtcam there, and have it go streaming.
bovine miniature… a bull sculpture the size of a red blood cell… how cool!
my cow army of spies is getting more resourceful.
also- keeping with livestock (and the cute little pancake bunny – and a note in english describing what he’s up to .)
The World Carrot Museum goes a long way toward explaining the GFP Bunny Project. The glowing green bunny must have found out what the Carrot Museum already knows: carrots make excellent lasers.

LJ has a different feel now… I wonder if it’s the difference between a small village and a big city. I can remember wayyy back when it was new to me, and I was just looking for a place to link to my web page, and keep an ongoing journal of my thoughts online. ( directed me here after looking at her site. I’m glad I went… that was the only reason I went with LJ, as it was the first one I’d heard of that was comfortable. Blogger at that time was still sticky, and LJ had a spiffier client, plus a build in friends and comments feature.) I miss a few of the features that have been (temporarily, I hope!) sacrificed to allow for more growth, like seeing where a person has recently posted, the regional search engine, etc… it was nice to peek around and see who in your neighborhood was posting. I think you could break it down by age, too… nice to see (forgive my ageist ways) folks 19 and up in my zone, who have gaming as an interest…it’d make organizing a group very simple.
I’d love for the gp search engine and picture host to come online soon, preferably after they get the machinery to work properly again. all the weirdness is floating out at http://www.scottobear.com/lj/ right now, unindexed, just hovering. it’s begun to add up, over the year+ of entries… and I really don’t put as many pictures in as some folks do.
Paid members errors!? Why!? Even though there is a dedicated web server and a dedicated database server for paid members, it is just a dedicated slave server. Both sides have to still share the master database. The devs have been hacking away all night and all day to move code from hitting the master DB to the slaves. They’re mostly done, but this message will probably pop up anyway.
Remember:Reload less, it will work more often.
