  1. What a fascinating thread. Slarty, you have clearly outdone yourself. At first I thought that I would have pun with this, but the meticulous manner with which you consider each word is more compelling that I remain sane. I am particularly impressed by your dissertatio1`n regarding the McDonalds Coffee Caper. Much of that information was not disclosed at the the time. Too many people jumping up and down try to attract attention to their particular cause` de jour. And now for your rating pleasure I submit my list of words: The White Rabbit, The March Hare, The Jackalope, The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog, Harvey (the Pouka), Harry (as in the Jerry Lewis movie The Geisha), The Easter Bunny, Did a rabbit really attack Jimmy Carter? The Harehunter If you put me at the very bottom of your list, I will consider that fair in light of my long absence.
  2. ADOS, I have finally gotten around to looking at those broken links mentioned, and found there is no way that you could fix two of them. I fixed them today by reaching into my hidden vault , which I made visible,
  3. Hey folks , Harehunter here. I found myself in a rare idle moment checking on my website "harehunter.info" when I noticed the link to the Exile II maps was broken. The link was supposed to point to Olly Clarks page, which seems to have finally been discontinued. Many years ago I noticed just how transient web sites are. Being an Archivist as well as a Cartographer, I have downloaded many websites for just the eventuality of another site going offline. Soooo... I have added a section to my harehunter.info called The Vault. I have uploaded Olly's page in it's entirety. It was a really useful site. Anyway, if anyone is looking for Olly, enjoy. And now it I must return down the rabbit hole, back to wonderland.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. i mean what could be more gruesome, being killed by a ravenous bear, or not dieing, doomed to a living hell.
  7. 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..
  8. 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.
  9. 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.)
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. Lord Preserve me, I had forgotten just how hideous HareHaunter had been. Do I smell formaldehyde???
  13. I solved the problem with the broken link Harpy Thymes. I have another one titled Punnished Prose which points to ... Harpy Thymes.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. Nothing more complicated than html and a dash or two of Java script
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. It seems so long ago, In a world so far from home I used to enjoy the conversations that I had with you all I have moved on, but I am pleased to find familiar faces, Slarty, the disagreements we had on strategy My old Mad Monk Squad was anathema to you, Lilith, my dear, our political views could not be more different. Kelandon and Jerekeen, I remember well Ishad Nha, how goes the project? So many others, but none has changed. I have changed, if you ever come to Linked In, look for me by my real world name, Jeff Porterfield
  20. I'm not going to detail my answers because those who know me already know I go counter current to most of the people on this board. And the rest of you can probably figure out where I stand based on my last statement. I find it curious how the list of "rights" keeps expanding. I grew up with only thirteen. Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. No guarantee I would succeed in finding happiness, but at least I had a shot at it. And then their is the bill of rights.
  21. I took that oath, and I have never been released from it. Note, that I have sworn to protect the Constitution. Not the president, not congress, The Law of the Land.This document outlines the limited powers of the Federal Republic in order to form a more perfect union between the sovereign States. Yes, they are still sovereign for they are each a republic within their own borders. In addition to defining the powers to be vested in this federal government, certain rights and Liberties were defined as well in the first ten amendments to this Constitution. And again, to emphasize the sovereignty of the individual States, the 10th Amendment states "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people"
  22. Oath of Commissioned Officer "I, ____, having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God." (DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)

    If I may interject my two pennies. On Linked In where I have been residing for the past year and and half or so, I have ben gaining a bit of a following among the Muslim coimmunity. The history of this is quite long, Suffice it to say that since I began mentoring Leadership I have been in close communication with India, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and more. Follks, I don't know if all of you remember me when was active here, but I was known to be quite argumentative at that time. That was nothing compared to some of the verbal knock down drag outs I've had to moderate. ( I owe you one Slarty ) By taking a stance in the middle between Muslims and Jews and Christians, and taking charge of them to eliminate the ad hominum attacks, regardless of he source, even the gurus of the site consider me with a smidgian of respect.
