  1. The Grand Spiderweb Poll, 2017 Edition: Demographics & Favorites

    Slarty, my dear friend. Thank you for standing sentinel for me. Much has happened this past few years. I have been unable to update you because I had somehow got my account locked in such a way that I needed Mariann's help. And she is a very busy person, as I am sure you know quite well. Today we got connected and I am now able to log in as me. In 2000 I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. Up until 2014 I was able to work as a Data Base Administrator, Oracle and Universe. At that point I had lost enough cognitive function I was unable to perform my duties. I was put on short term disability insurance for the next year while I trained my replacements. In 2015 my wife and I moved to the San Joaquin Valley in California where my wife has family. In addition to my Parkinson's, my wife has severe COPD. Bad knees, Bad hips, Bad kidneys, blood thinners ... But even so I am more able to care for her than she is for me ... except when I go OFF state in my PD. In this state I am completely unable to move, or type, or talk. It is ... was ... like being buried alive inside my own skin. However, I had regained enough function with medication, that I thought I could run a small business, with help of course. Well ... so much for ambition. My business failed last year. So what do I do now with all this "spare" time on my hands? I find ways to regain lost function, I write about it on Linked In, I am succeeding in regaining function, and I share those techniques with others, along with a heavy dose of Positive Attitude. Oh, and I get into heated "discussions" ( more accurately knock down drag out fights) that i was discouraged from having here. BTW, all those with whom I have tangled consider me as a friend, with my most vehement adversaries becoming my most ardent allies. I am still looking for someone to take over my website, but in talking with Mariann today, she and Jeff may present it in its current incomplete state under one of their own domains. There is so much work needed to complete E III, A V, and A VI. But I am more focused on PD recovery and can spare no time for games. Even now, my hands are stiff as I type this at little more than 5 words per minute (I used to be able to type 100 wpm). On occasion I can get back up to 50 wpm. This is still the most annoying effect PD has on me ... this and the problems with my voice. Thank you again, my friend. You can publish this letter to all who care to read it. I have a special place in my heart for you and many more here. I'll try to swing by from time to time Signed, The Harehunter (the hare who hunts the hunters) P.S. I'm a mod on Linked IN !!!! https://youtu.be/WbD5mhNZJfc https://youtu.be/Qq4Q3SM3n50
  2. I don't know if this is forum-appropriate, but here goes...

    ADoS, I suspect there is a <base> tag somewhere in your "awos" section. This effects all relative links to begin their relative addressing from that point. I think if you add a line like this <base href="http://www.almightyw...e.com/awos/hhh/" target="_blank"> to the <Head> section of the HHH page It might fix the problem. You should have sent me PM. I would have responded sooner.

    i mean what could be more gruesome, being killed by a ravenous bear, or not dieing, doomed to a living hell.
  4. I don't know if this is forum-appropriate, but here goes...

    A mis-understanding, ADoS. I am quite well and responding well to the Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) I was just describing my Fear of Pakinson's before having been diagnosed with it..
  5. I don't know if this is forum-appropriate, but here goes...

    ADoS, You intrigue me. How about this little twist; I don't die, but my body is completely paralyzed, while my mind is still lucid, active ... ... ... and isolated. Like being buried alive ... ... ... inside your own skin.
  6. Is it weird I have an Imaginary Girlfriend?

    Wait a minute ... I don't have any hands ... just ... ( Pause) ... Paws !! I'll leave for now, but you never know when I may hop in again. ( that's because I'll never know.)
  7. Is it weird I have an Imaginary Girlfriend?

    My apologies Lilith. You have always been a thorn in my hand, That is what has made you so memorable. I did not intend to creep you out. Did you like the song?
  8. Is it weird I have an Imaginary Girlfriend?

    You guys are going to find it weird to see me comment on a topic, but then after you read my comment you'll think "Now that guy is >>really<< out there. I also have an imaginary friend, who I actively peddle up and down the pages of Linked In. He is a donkey. Yes, that's right, a donkey. His name is Hotay. He is the ass kicking ass from La Mancha. Now there are quite a few who know how he came by his name from what I have just written. For you who are still young ( Slarty, even though you may feel young at heart, you are still in the first group.) If I tell you that he is the donkey named Hotay, I may get a few more light bulbs. For those who still don't get it, there is a movie titled "The Man From La Manche" which will fill in the gaps. It is the story of an old doddering lunatic, Miguel Cervantes, who imagines himself as a knight in ... ... well, not so shiny ... armor. In his insanity he becomes Don Quixote, knight errant. I could go on, but that is not the point of my comment. So I have this imaginary friend, the Donkey Hotay, who arises out of this movie. BTW, Peter O'Toole plays Don Quixote, Sophia Loren plays Aldonza ( OK all you old enough to remember, what young man above the age of 10 did >>not<< have a major crush on Sophia Loren?) In the movie, Don Quixote sings a song " ". Now why is that important? When I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, I went through a denial phase, looking for a doctor who could treat the neurological disorder I had, but not Parkinson's. That was stupid. Finally I went back to the doctor who had correctly diagnosed me with Parkinson's. Only then having accepted that, then I was able to be given the proper treatment that allowed me to function normally for the next 12 years. Sometime in the early months, that video came across my attention. I was suddenly gripped in such a Positive Attitude, it sustains me even today. Oh BTW, for those whom are of the fairer sex ( Lilith, this is for you) there is a version sung by Jackie Evancho. This my theme song. Now back to that silly donkey. I have had on many occasions the need of a comical sidekick in order to divert peoples attention from the hateful way they were being with each other. Hotay was my comic relief. He would get people laughing, on both sides of the conflict. Once that happened, people began to recognize each other to be just as human as themselves. Reasonable discussion ensued. So the point it, If an imaginary friend makes you happy, then why not share it. People may think you're weird at first, but soon you will have a few who will ask for the donkey as though it really existed. Now as I mount my trusty steed, the Donkey Hotay, I ride atilt into the rising sun, always tilting in the lists because I am more than half a bubble off plumb.

    Lord Preserve me, I had forgotten just how hideous HareHaunter had been. Do I smell formaldehyde???

    I solved the problem with the broken link Harpy Thymes. I have another one titled Punnished Prose which points to ... Harpy Thymes.

    I just linked to your serve ADoS. http://www.almightywebsite.com/hhh/ That feels comfortably weird. To see my own website on someone elses domain. Glad to see that you got it working.

    ADoS -- DId the uploads I put up there today fix your problems. Or did they add to them. Or have you had a chance to look at them. I apologize for the delay, but life is getting pretty hectic.

    Nothing more complicated than html and a dash or two of Java script

    Well met, Edgwyn, Slarty, Yes you interpret my poem and request quite accurately. I have relocated from the highways and byways of Houston, to a small, quiet town in California. I have undergone surgery to implant a device called Deep Brain Stimulation. It is supposed to help with the Parkinson's. I had to leave behind the company for whom I worked for the past 24 years, as a Database Programmer and Administrator. I sought to beecome the master of the machine, but instead I had become it's slave. I am starting a new business, a Small Biz Center, that will serve the logistics needs of small businesses in the downtown district. I continue to mentor young men and women around the world. I find this undertaking immensly more satisfying. I am in communication with ADoS re my website. I am happy to have an heir to it. It would be a shame to lose it as so much earlier material was lost. Thank you my friends, and Adieu. This does not mean that I won't be back, Just not often.

    Not one comment. After all the work I put in. And still no one has answered my request for a caretaker of my website. Sigh
