I've posted this before here, but it's worth repeating for those who blog, or who code: Google's Codesearch.

artlibre.org, the copyleft_attitude is great for those into digital, or other forms of art, and don't want restrictions. It's kind of an "Open Source" attitude.

See also: Creative Commons.

As always, very good articles in the op/ed department at alternet.org. I try to check the site at least every couple of days.

More to come, but later. Am working.

Hhmmm... Ron, have you seen Diebold's response to RFK Jr.'s article in Rolling stone? They have responses to several articles, actually -- check them out at Diebold's site.
I've seen a lot of crapola written, but the excuses they have... and qualify their responses like the touch-screen system is the most accurate voting system when properly administered. That's the problem, isn't it? Duh. Y'can't administer the p.o.s. properly.

the address is too long to list here, and still can't get the hypertext link to work, but the New York Times had an article today, October 27, 2006, about the IRS deliberately delaying collection efforts on Hurricane Katrina victims until after the MidTerm Election and the Holidays. IRS Commissioner, Mark Everson, said this was "routine" and to keep the IRS from being cast in a "bad light". Four Former IRS Commissioners, who served under Presidents of both parties said such actions were both "improper" and "indefensible".

And remember the SICT is to announce its judgement on Hussein on Nov. 5th, two days before the election and in time for the Sunday pundit shows. Much info on this at www.mediamatters.org for October 26th.

dedanna, a white screen on that blog was at least as enlightening as it was when the print reappeared...I am seriously worried about the idea they may steal another one. Why would they stop now?
Larry, I have seen this too. November suprize? Saddam sentenced to death. I'm not sure how many votes this will change but somebody ought to be out there preempting this. I'm not to sure how much good getting rid of Saddam did. He at least kept Iran in check. So we traded one problem for another..big accomplishment. We have also not reduced terrorism. Only enhanced it and given a rallying cry to their cause. It sure wont change my vote.

Dedanna, I tried the sites you and Ron mentioned about a month or so ago but without success. I noticed you now have a comment on the October 15 Coffee Table which I will try. Once I got a blue print, but no linkage. Probably not doing the ahref,=,<>,etc. correctly. Thanks.

Believe it or not, and with this admin and its supporters its hard not to believe, Corporate groups with connections to the Bush administration are pushing for an agenda to Repeal regulations put in place after Enron and other scandals. Among these, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. See www.nytimes.com, a lead story. This is what is Really Important about this election.

The best way to learn it is to right-click on an empty space of the background on a page that has hyperlinks, and go to View Source. Check out the code for them there.

Most don't put in the spaces in the right places or miss just one character of the code , or they miss where the quotes go or something. They're easy mistakes to make.

Remember there is a space between the "a" and "href" parts of the code -- and that you have to put in the full path of the url to include the http://, and put the full path in quotes. The < and > go around from the "a" of a href, to the quote at the end of the url. Then, type in the text you want it to read, type in a < again, /a, then > (no spaces in the code part of this, only in the url itself sometimes).

Hope this helps -- the best thing to do is take the primers at htmlgoodies, or to copy the code from another page until you see how it works.

It works often to just copy/paste the example on one of those instruction pages and fill in your own stuff until you get an idea of where you may go wrong.

Dedanna, Ron, looks like it worked this time. Dedanna I used the info at the page you mentioned in your reply at the October 15th coffee table. I will definitely recommend it. Thanks.

Came across something kind of interesting today. Has me bumfuzzled though. Confused. Not the thing itself, but why is it introduced?

Maybe so someone could say the stood up for what they believed in. Strange in these days but refreshing.

Well, the thing I guess, that has me bumfuzzled about it, is that I don't understand why they bring that forth when it ain't gonna happen in the near future.

But then again, one has to wonder if the pressure of it got too great, so they're trying to take a "get out" attitude. I don't know, there's something about it that I can't put my finger on.
