wrong way

8100 - Dang it, is it only Tuesday?

GeotargetIt's illegal to annoy

A new federal law states that when you annoy someone on the Internet, you must disclose your identity. Here's the relevant language.

"Whoever...utilizes any device or software that can be used to originate telecommunications or other types of communications that are transmitted, in whole or in part, by the Internet... without disclosing his identity and with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass any person...who receives the communications...shall be fined under title 18 or imprisoned not more than two years, or both."
Hmm... I wonder how enforceable this is, and how it'll change the face of the internet? Telephone use? Talk Radio?

The answer to my ESP poll was Wavy Lines. I suspect there may've been some circle after image bleed over due to the moon-talk and icon. Very interesting... most people knew that I'd go with wavy lines. Fully 40% of people answering got it right, as well as 33% getting the circle vibe. Spiffy that folks know me that well, give a one in five chance to get it right.

Let's try it again - I'm looking at an image, and focusing on it... which one is it?

Which shape is Scotto thinking about?

Wavy Lines

The problem with LJ:

We all think we are so close, but really we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about.

Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

Thanks Ilene for the two icons!

8102 - Today I learned -

GeotargetDinosaurs are a specific subgroup of the archosaurs, a group that also includes crocodiles, pterosaurs, and birds. although pterosaurs are close relations, they are not true dinosaurs. Even more distantly related to dinosaurs are the marine reptiles, which include the plesiosaurs and ichthyosaurs. Mammoths and mastodons are mammals and did not appear until many millions of years after the close of the Cretaceous period. Dimetrodon is neither a reptile nor a mammal, but a basal synapsid, i.e., an early relative of the ancestors of mammals.

I honestly didn't know that pterosaurs and marine reptiles didn't count as dinos,  or that dinosaur wasn't a catch-all term before today, and I've loved early critters for well over three decades. Talk about a hole in my education!

Also testing out this site to seek out info re: sexual predators over a mapped area -


Type in your home address or a family members address. The web site will bring up a map of your neighborhood with small colored boxes on it. The small House icon represents your address; the colored boxes represent sex offenders in your area.

Click on the colored boxes and it will bring up the offender's photograph and the exact address, names and employers. Click ALL AROUND, you will be amazed at the information you get!

Seems to work better with MSIE than Mozilla
