I have witnessed the new and wonderful changes to this page. OOOOOOOHHHHH!!!!! I feel pruple, which is like purple only more so. Alas, there is only purple. Also, I feel like my writing style right now is pictograph, but... in any case, Hello! Nice changes, JonC. Applause. The rest of the lost butterfly children applaud too.

Hmm... I happened to be reading through the sign-ins and noticed how Jacob not only hit my main page for 666th time, but did so likewise for my quotes page. Now I extend the question, is this a mere coincidence? Or perhaps something far more sinister? I prefer to speculate on the latter. Watching to much X-Files probably.

says

Look, I can use a font that isn't a choice on JonC's page!

That is, if you have the appropriate fonts already on your computer.

Now I'm just using Courier New, because fixed width fonts are just better. Ok, Courier New isn't really fixed width, but all the letters are given the same width, so it acts like it is.

Oh, right. My point being, You will forget everything you ever knew about these "coincidences" with me being visitor number 666. You will also forget that you read this subliminal message.

There. Oh, what was my point? You forgot, didn't you. Well, except for funky graphic fonts, true type fonts are inferior. And I must be an a Maroon Moon. What a Maroon.

Hello again, Here is my second more readable message. Sorry about the last one, however the page did say choose a color which fits your current mood. And I did!. I felt silvery light. Oh well... Tired... Sleepy, Friday yay

What exactly is an olive mood? Oh well, it sounded like a good mood. I just had to write a signin and compliment Jonc on his new counter. Much more modern then that ratty old one you used to have. Although in my opinion you need one where the numbers are on fire. THAT would be cool.

Here is another great font that isn't available on this page!

Anyways, now I forgot what I was going to say...
Oh, right. Well, If I ever get around to it, I will make a counter that looks like numbers being spelled out in machine gun bullets. Animated and sounds and everything. It would be really cool. Anyways, this time I'm in a navy mood. I'd be in a navy moon, but it's three-quarters moon right now. But there's a full moon on Friday, so maybe I'll feel better than... Better than what? I don't know, but I guess I'll be feeling better than whatever.

Now returning you to your regular font...

(Just try and find it...)

says

Well, I thought I wrote something here a couple days ago, but I guess I must have hit back instead of submit. Oh well. Anyways, what I said was that instead of the music from some town in Ultima 7 which I can't remember now, you could use the Britannia music fanfare, which would go well. Alternately, you should use the music from near the spaceship in the cornfield where you get the Hoe of Destruction. It would go well with some of the weird comments in here. Btw, do you know how fast the text in Ultima 7 scrolls by on a pentium?

Whoops, I just got my own 1600th hit. Well, I hope you're all happy with the new look of the main page, it took me for friggin' ever to do it. Specifically it took away 9 hours of MCAT study time, which can't be good considering that I'm getting my ass whooped in Verbal.

As per Jacob's request, the Britan fanfare is now one of the possible songs played in the guestbook. And yes, I do know how fast everything goes in Ultima 7 on a Pentium. I was just playing it recently which is what got me in the mood to give the guestbook an Ultima theme.

(Lhasa_Ehmo@Juno.com)

Well, of course, the music I really wanted to hear was the tune from near the spaceship in Ultima 7. Besides, the Hoe of Destruction is just cool. But not as cool as the Sword of Gardening. Or the Elven Plate of Unearthly Might. Anyways, fuchsia.

Just signing your guestbook, well, because I can. I have to admit, I like the guestbook, though I'm SURE it's an AOL innovation and not a devil innovation. And I your splashthingy is still inferior. My page is perttier.

And I'll have to admit, some of your music is surprisingly good. Depeche mode, for example. If it weren't totally illegal and something someone nice like me would NEVER EVER do ;), you would have to send me those mp3's of I ran (actually, I think I have that on cd) and rock me amadeus. And I'm breaking into your home and stealing the oingo boingo cd. :P

says

Haven't been able to update or actually do anything internet related in a while. Just moved to my new apartment and won't have modem access for a while. Besides which, I was busy playing StarCraft to death and beyond.

As for the cool guestbook signin stuff, AOL innovation my ass. It's all 100% JonC ingeniousness.

My computer crashed rather badly several times recently, coercing me to reformat my hard drive, so I'm afraid all my MP3s went bye-bye. But I should be able to recover most of them from my cousin in due course.

The counter thing is a bit awkward. The Chinese numbers are the correct ones. The reason I didn't setup the counter as it is now beforehadn, was because I knew there'd be the problem of the English numbers being behind count. Don't ask me, in this case it's all 100% AOL un-ingeniousness.

I don't want to hear any wisecracks, but I must admit, sometimes even I get bothered looking at my own picture. I suppose I'll take it down or figure out something else to do with it.

Isn't it ironic that JonC should steal Ed's cool background while trying to prove his web page is better? And your JavaScript pales in comparison to my Cool Button (tm). And when Nibbles With Frags (tm) comes out, I will name one of the snakes after you, and it too will always die, along with Paul. Oh, and your counter is really screwed up.

Happy hunting ..

Well, I am the 1900th visitor to this site. Although, at first, the counter read 1900, but in English it was 1899. I went to see the quote pages, and when I hit 'Back' to return to the main page, the counter read 1899. So, I reloaded, and it read 1901. Of course, the whole time it read 1899 in English. I will consider myself the 1900th visitor. In conclusion, I would like to say:
Vive Moi!

Ha! Paul certainly does have a bad parody of your picture on his webpage, but you have not yet witnessed my pictures! Taken from a speech given from a balcony on my luxurious villa, they exemplify my powerful state. Unfortunately, the camera had slide film in it, and the treacherous peons who work in your country developing film at Kodak could not produce copies on disk. So the pictures will be slightly delayed. Meanwhile, my mighty armies are preparing a surprise attack against the fools at Sav-on for their incompetency! Their ignorance shall be their downfall!

Well, it appears that I am visitor number =000, or 2000 if you prefer. As Y2K, er... Visitor 2K, my first statements will be "Vive moi!" and "BENGD". Thank you. Oh, and Jon, you should make available the various fonts you have on your guestbook for downloading, so we may all use them. And put Paul in his place for daring to degrade your webpage (and mine too, incidentally).

As Jacob asks the devil to "put me in my place" because he's incapable of doing it himself, one reflects. Reflects on the futility of that sort of request. But, I suppose futility is all some people can hope for in their web pages. The CLOSEST competitor, in sheer wonder and light, of web pages, is Ed, I might add. Just to further dis (:P) inferior contributions.


On Oct 4, 1998 01:39
Monsieur le Marquis de Lister

Actually, Paul, the reason I asked JonC to put you in your place, is because you were belittling webpages, JonC's in particular, in his guestbook. I most certainly am capable of putting you in your place when the needs arise.

I think the reason that everybody uses Jonc's pge for all these messages is because we've all been using it for so long. Now we've grown accoustomed to using Jonc's page and it's easier to hold these meaningless conversations in one place.

Just to let you know I would like to announce my services to all minors as a proprieter of lotto tickets an other things minors are not allowed to purchase. I am afraid however that Jacob has cornered the market on liquor. You may proceed to shower me with affection.
