About Me

I am not new to the Internet, but I am new to owning my own computer and connecting with broadband. I've had WebTV since 1998. It has its limitations but it was easy to learn and turned out to be a great introductory tool. I created five user names who each in turn created many web pages, all linking to each other. I then had unlimited access to my neighbor's computer, also on slow dial-up but useful as another learning tool.

Interests

Digital photography, genealogy, I am a Find-a-Grave volunteer, and a collector of quotations.

My introduction to Internet radio was through an iTunes widget on my toolbar. It has local stations and global stations. You can search by artist or genre and create a presets list of your favorites. Mine play through my Windows Media Player, sound quality excellent. My favorite station so far is "Feelin' Floyd," a station from France specializing in all things Pink Floyd. I don't speak French but except for brief station IDs, neither does the station. I am currently listening to Alice Cooper's "Night Music" station. Other favorites are the comedy stations that play George Carlin, Denis Leary, Robin Williams material to listen to while doing chores.

Where's George is a bill tracking site. The hobby is known as "Georging" and those who do it are "Georgers." Registration is free and does not generate uninvited spam. Bills are marked in various ways - some folks use a rubber stamp, some hand-write their message. As long as the serial number does not get messed up, it is not "defacing" or illegal. I write in the margins: "Where's George?" in the side margin on the face of the bill and in the long margin on the back of the bill (top or bottom, whichever is the widest) I write "Track my journey. Register me at wheresgeorge.com." The site keeps track of incredibly detailed statistics about the origin of the bills you've entered and those that have received hits including rate of travel per day. You get a score based on the number of hits registered on bills you have entered, distance traveled, number of days since your last activity, etc. I have been Georging for about ten years. I am in the top 3% in California and the top 8% nationwide of those with George scores. I have had hits from 28 states, two from Germany, and one from Egypt. Yet I'm nowhere near those individuals that have had hits from every state capital in the country. Or from every county in their state. Where's Willy is the Canadian equivalent. P.S. - This site was overwhelmed with traffic a couple years ago when it was used as an example of how a flu virus could travel worldwide and how long it would take.

The single best reference resource site on the Internet! Contains everything, arranged logically: newspapers, reference books, the Old Farmer's Almanac, site of the day, word of the day, photo of the day from multiple sources, the white pages, the yellow pages, reverse look-up, David Letterman's Top Ten, late-night show hosts' humor, daily diversions, short cuts to your email, etc., etc. If you were only allowed one URL access to the world, this would be the one.

I have been watching "Once Upon a Time" at ABC.com so to compare the website experience at TVFanatic.com, that's what I chose to watch there. Instead of launching an episode player, it went to a page where you are to choose between watching the episode at U-Tube or at Amazon.com. Why bother? Why not just watch it at the network site? The only ads at ABC are for their other programs. TVFanatic had product ads and no episode player. Both sites offer information about the series and about each episode, reviews and a place for viewer comments. I prefer the network site. Less clutter and fewer clicks to get what you want.

Update: This used to be My favorite search engine, it is gone now. You get Google-search results on one page instead of the usual ten to a page. Much more convenient because you don't have to wade through all those "sponsered results" before viewing the web results you were looking for. Just one page to scroll through. Only the top 100 results on one page instead of the potential thousands, ten at a time. Image search should be done somewhere else but standard web search is excellent here.
