Movie line of the week answer
Decent response this week, thanks everyone!
Out winner is none other an Moose. The correct answer is...
Let the magic begin!
Microsoft AOL, or MOL?
CNet News: "Media conglomerate Time Warner has held talks in recent months with software maker Microsoft about selling its America Online unit, according to published reports." - Couldn't happen. Shouldn't happen. Microsoft needs at least one strong competitor, right?
Long lost site
It's been a VERY, VERY, long time since I've visited Apple's Movie Trailer site. I'd forgotten how much I like it.
Movie line of the week
I didn't have to think to long about this particular line. I am after all an obsessed fan. Yes, you can take that as a hint.
Here she be...
I was unfortunate enough in my youth to come across a vomit-flavored one, and since then I have rather lost my liking for them. But, I think I'll be safe with this toffee-flavored one.. [eats it] ... Hmm, alas, earwax.
Ok, quick, what movie! Send your guesses here
Today's tally: 103 unique e-mail's into my Crabapples.NET account, six of them non-SPAM.
I wish there was a legal way to nail these bone-heads. Yeah, yeah, I know there are services and software to help stop the flow. But we shouldn't have an industry built around a problem like this. We should eliminate the problem.
Save Disney disappointment
Over the past few weeks I've been on the Save Disney band wagon, I still am, but I'm a bit disappointed with their lack of response to my e-mail. I've sent two now. One offering to help them setup RSS feeds, for FREE, the other telling them about my last trip to the Magic Kingdom. No reply to either, not even an auto responder letting me know they got my e-mail.
I know it's not your primary focus but you should at least let your supporters know you've received their notes and letters.
Once again I ask. Please support RSS. It would help your supporters immensely. You could breakup your news into categories and publish a feed for each. It would allow us to know what's new and when it happened. See The Harry Potter Automatic News Aggregator for a wonderful example of RSS use.
