No new profiles this time, but I fixed a lot of little errors here and there that people have submitted through e-mail (many, many, many e-mails). Hopefully now that most of those are taken care of, I'll be able to get back to doing some profiles. I also updated the PacesetterSucks.com site, although I didn't add any more stories to that either. I was planning to put back up all the stories this weekend, but I called Gary and he asked if I'd wait a couple more months. Apparently he's still dealing with another frivolous lawsuit that has been going on for a while, but he expects it to finally be over within the next few months. So instead I created a frame that comes up whenever a user goes to the Other Stories page. The frame displays a list of all the stories on the left-hand side of the document, which makes browsing them a little easier. And I added a new section to the Latest News page.

Oh, I got my 256 Megabit Game Boy Advance flash card this week. Now I can download all my games to this one cartridge so I don't have to carry around a load of games with me wherever I go. The instructions were pretty crappy, but I finally got it to work. Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention last week that I put up the photos from our trip to Chicago. Hmmm.... what else? Well, I started playing Frogger: The Great Quest a while ago. I forgot to mention that, too. Oh man, is it bad! I mean, it completely, seriously, absolutely sucks!! The control feels sluggish and imprecise, the tasks are uninspired, as are the environments, and the environment even disappears as it gets far enough into the background. It doesn't fade, or fog, just *blink* and it's gone. What the hell?! It's kinda hard to head toward a destination if it's invisible! Well, I got it for like ten bucks at Toys R Us, so I guess you get what you pay for. Okay, I suppose that's it for now. Don't forget to head on over to the national Do Not Call Registry and input your phone number to keep those damned telemarketers from disrupting your very precious life. My precious....

Some of you may have had your messages bounced back to you last week, so I'd like to apologize for that. Someone sent me a couple e-mails with several pictures attached, which totaled to about one megabyte in size, and Hotmail only gives out two megabytes per account. I did need the pictures, as I did not have any for those characters, but because of Hotmail's space limitation, I always ask people to send me pics using my Pacbell email account. I receive a lot of e-mails, so I don't remember if this person did not ask before sending them, or if I just forgot to ask them to use my other e-mail address. And normally I would have caught these e-mails by the end of the night and removed them from Hotmail, but as it turns out I was on vacation in Chicago at the time. It was a fun trip, but I'm sure you don't want to hear about it... so you know what? I'm gonna tell you about it anyway! Mu-ha-ha-ha! Mu-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-haaaaa!

Okay, now this is part where I originally wrote about Our Trip to Chicago, but it was really long so I decided that it deserved it's own page.
