Light blogging explained
I have to find work. The Wife's friend at work remarked that I should look at teaching English in China, or something. So, I've been trying source information on that. What I've found so far looks great if you're an unmarried recent college grad, or at least not possess the incumberments of owning property, in fact, I think it would be great fun. But it looks like after conversion from yuan to dollars, you take home less than $500/mo. And I'm sure that is good money in their economy, but it is not enough for this economy.
All is not settled on this issue. I saw enough that makes me believe there are some decent jobs teaching overseas, and even China, the difficulty seems to be in locating them. Many of the sites are downloading at speeds that make me wonder if some of the sites are up.
On the other hand, I wonder if we're seeing the death nell of the web as we know it. I'm running into slow site speeds everywhere. And the cause of death is - us. Spam senders and kids w/ nothing better to do than design and spread viruses, people who believe chain letters, and the sheer volume of junk will lead to increasing blockage, the arteries of comunication and eventually it will die of a stroke. Too bad.
Anyway, I loaded 1st Page from a backup disk I made during the re-install fiasco at the end of May. Turns out, some Trojan had taked up residence in the program before I had copied it. Luckily Norton caught it this time. Here it is: "Js. Trojan.WindowBomb from C:\Prog|Evrsoft\1st Page\IScripts\Buttons|Six buttons from hell.izs" Really. Thank you, whoever, but being a complete twit.
Anyway, I going to take a little time to copy my template to the program and see if I tweak a few things. The Wife wants links to open in a new browser, so I'm going to see if I can make that happen. I'd like to do it the way Dave over at Drunken Monkey Style Blogging
has it set up. When you link from the main page it opens a single seperate browser, and each new link clicked, navigates that one browser.
Also, I have 20 megs I've got sitting in my ISP account, and I need to figure out how best to utilize them in conjuction w/ this blog. I see no reason at this point not to maintain the main page here, but we'll see.
