Hello, world: This is how I feel today. I'm like that first example program in all the textbooks right now. After playing around with "Internet Technologies" since the early 90s, I'm beginning to discover all of the useful things and apply them to my uses. Chris Pirillo at Lockergnome (The server experienced a period of outages immediately after I posted, wouldn't ya know?) also said that his friends Bill & Pam Gerrard at DNS Central (a domain registration service) have helped him quite a bit. It seemed like more than just a shallow plug to me, so I decided to join in the chorus. I have to produce more revenues (and be willing to say everything that I have to say) before I need to register a domain, but I thought I'd try to encourage others to register with DNS Central, too. My first problem is that my family name was snapped up early in the Internet Gold Rush: Now I have to decide what other name may say what I want to say; and as I've said, I'm not saying it yet. But stay tuned: The "Spyware" subject is beginning to interest me.

After reading everything Chris Pirillo at Lockergnome had to say about Blogger, I have to give him credit for this discovery. I always wanted a way to add those odds and ends to my webpage, but it was always so difficult to find a page where news and "whatnot" belonged -- modify it -- and then check to see what I'd screwed up in the process. Maybe with Blogger, I can actually have web pages.
The next time they ask "How's Dear Old Ireland?" there's an answer on this site. It seems curious to find it -- and curiouser still -- what may be found there: Irish Times on the Web
