AntiBloggies and Old Friends

My pal Dawson and his wife, Annie have joined the blogging ranks! Dawson worked the tech support lines at AOL with me for a while and wrote one of the best tech support knowledge-base tools I’ve ever seen. I don’t even remember what it was called, but I used it to store modem strings for at least a year after he left the company, preciously guarding my archived copy in case something happened to my network drive. He’s a funny guy, and if his wife’s current post is any indication, she’s just as funny.

And the AntiBloggies are back! I sponsored the worst hair category last year. This year, I’m sponsoring the Best Amazon Wishlist category. Why? Because I’d like to see some good ones. Mostly, it looks like people post wishlist links on their blogs as a form of donation. I’ve been tempted to post mine so my family can see it when they’re birthday shopping. But, I usually just e-mail it to them (ok, if you want to see it, it’s here). What’s the prize for winning this category? Duh, it’s something off the winning wishlist (under \$25 – I am not a rich man).

  1. So, what exactly is on your “Wishlist”? Don’t you have a birthday coming up?

  2. Umm, just thought I’d let you know that your wishlist link brings up the generic wishlist page (i.e. it showed my wishlist when I went there).

  3. It was called TechUtil, Kev. It got all the way up to TechUtil v4.0 before the threat to Vantive became too real and I was canned. 😉

  4. I updated the wishlist with the correct url (Thanks, Kurt!). Silly me for thinking cutting and pasting would actually work. It’s here.

  5. in the dept. of the picayune:
    not that i really care, but the first link in this post is red and the rest of the links are orange, and i only mention it, because for a few seconds i thought i was having a seizure, like on that japanese animation show the kiddies kacked on some time back.
    psa over,

  6. You did have a seizure man. Oh wait, no, red is just the visited link color in the stylesheet. Why? Because I just can’t do things right.
