The vote is in

Today I voted for Obama via absentee ballot, even though I’m registered in New York and the Democrats will surely carry the state – save some generated international crisis, or a mysterious missive from Al Queda conveniently appearing just days before the election. Sorry Nader, I won’t even give you a protest vote this time. I want the Republicans to get spanked, and, let’s face it, you didn’t put on that panda suit.

Larry Kovaks, P.I.

I just finished creating a website for Larry Kovaks, P.I., Barcelona’s Premier Tourist Detective. I embedded a google map on the index page that has thumbtacks on the actual locations of his solved crimes. If you click on those you can read a short description of the story and get a link to it.

Most importantly, there is a new Kovaks Street Scam Forum with literally hundreds of true scam stories dating as far back as 1996. The great majority of these were taken off the original Barcelona Street Scam page by Terry Jones, and are now living on the new forum.

Stop by and check it out!

I’m on Authonomy

Check out my old book, The Bedroom Revolutionary, on Authonomy, the website created by Harper Collins for would-be wordsmiths to get discovered on. I published the entire manuscript of The Bedroom Revolutionary for you to criticize, praise or whatever.

Besides that, I have been busy dealing with html and php code for my upcoming Larry Kovaks website. I don’t know anything about code, so I have to google everything. It turns into a process of elimination usually, until I find the next meaningless line of text that turns a certain hyperlink yellow. Now … you want to change that tab background from #111 to #000 … well, that’s what you say! After 12 hours of this nonsense you start to understand why IT guys are so repellent. This shit is madness. Children, just stay away from programming if you know what’s good for you.
