WAR is NOT a GAME !
There's only one rule ... WIN!









FRANKENBLOG - RECOMBINANT HTML #3
Blogger Width-in Borders!

Can thanks be expressed in as an ever-repeating decimal?
If so, a huge slice of the PI goes to the Dissident Frogman (see link at right). He noticed a "small problem of dimensions" (a glitch that I'd given up trying to fix) that caused the page to extend beyond the banner. He advised me to reduce the size of the graphics to align it all properly. I did and it does. (Merci a thousand livers, DF!)



I am comforted by the knowledge that my archiving travails are part of a "larger issue".

Bless them who refine the Code ...---...

ROGUE MAPS FOR PEACE...
...of the grave

Three death-enabling streetwalkers--Jacques Chirac, Gerry Adams and Yasser Arafat--had one question for G-D...

Jacques Chirac: "Will France ever regain her stature as a great nation?"

G-D: "Not in your lifetime."

Gerry Adams: "Will Ireland ever be united under the IRA?"

G-D: "Not in your lifetime."

Finally, Arafat asked: "Will there ever be a Palestinian homeland?"

G-D: "Not in MY lifetime!"

La Fee's English is remarkable:

"Can you imitate the Big Lebowski--"Hey, dude"? He talks with a "drool", doesn't he?"

A "drool"!

ISN'T IT GOOD, NORWEGIANS WOULD LIKE TO HELP

Thanks to the folks at
Norwegian Friends of America (via Instapundit.) for their support of the US.

There's NO such thing as a small democracy.

BLOGGER UPDATE

Two gentlemen from Blogger are sacrificing sleep and sanity to reforge the missing archive links. Praise and thanks and an IOU for a chilled local beverage of their choice:

1) Taiwan Beer...Now low in formaldihyde.

2) One of those Taiwanese teas with the weird tapioca fish eggs floating in it: Refreshes as it gags! But the size of the straw...!



"NO" YOUR ENEMIES
UN and EU No-Nots to stick where you like...





TO BLOGGER, I WROTE

To whom it may (apparently be of little) concern:

"No one is assigned"...Where is Mr. G?!

"Cause/Solution To-Do Item: Unknown/None"...Are you KIDDING?

You can NOT possibly know LESS than I do how to resolve this CHRONIC FTP paralysis!

I ask a simple question: "What address will satisfy the GOSHDARNED "Settings" spirits?

The archives are there but I cannot link by any combination of Latin letters to them. One primate is not enough? Then please let me know post haste where I can find another 98 chimps.

Help me. I am in Taiwan and I have no congressman!

Sin-seeringly,





WELCOME!
