Anyone out there got advice on a place to host some images to link to from here? I don't want to use personal webspace from my ISP for a variety of reasons.

Requirements. Must be free. Must not sell my contact info or spam me (I don't care all that much about ads on the host itself.) Doesn't have to have a large amount of space.

The top 10 blog sites link over in the nave bar shows me at #6, behind skinning the frog, and in front of Life as an Air Force Wife. And I have 2 posts in the last 2 months! Is that right? Or has a databse glitched?

I know I got a couple of highly-ranked posts, but still...

Also, another thing I've noticed - my Top Articles list on the right is much different for me when I'm logged in than if I'm not. If I'm not, it draws off the articles on my front page, but if I am, it shows the all-tim...

I haven't been blogging much recently. There's a couple of reasons for that, but the main one is that I haven't been insriped to. With that in mind, I decided to do a little post on what I don't, won't, or haven't blogged on in the past year:

Firstly, my blogiversary. Feb 20th 2004 was my first post, if I remember my logs aright. I just forgot it until recently.

Personal things I haven't blogged about include myself, my family, and my firends. The main reason for this is that this blog is ...

I haven't blogged for almost a month, and there's no good reason for it (other than me spending time on other things). There's been plenty of events that I would and should blog, from a close friend of mine having a baby, to the Iraqi elections. I just have been feeling a little ragged this month, and haven't carved out time to blog. I will try and get some more blogging done this month.

One thing that I think would get me to post some more is if I could log in and post from my pocket PC (see...

I forget where I saw this, but it's a definite stress-reliever

I'm broswing through my blogs this morning, and I read today's Bleat.

Cute story about small child? Check.
Rambling commentary on classic media? Check
Miscellaneous socipolitical commentary on the ltest blogospheric outrage? Check

The latest outrage is Target's decision to no longer permit Salvation Army kettle-ringers on Target's property (this was a longstanding exemption to Target's blanket policy of not permitting solicitors on their properties at all). Myself, I'm of neutral opinio...

Just noticed, this is my 101th post to JU!

Now back to your regularly scheduled semi-political tirades...

(I guess I'm going to have to find something else to blog on soon)

If you haven't heard of Rain-X, it's a product that you can apply to automotive glass that significantly increases the point at which water beads up on the glass and flows off. You can get in several different forms and ways to apply it to glass (I get it as my windshield wiper fluid). the end result of it is that I have to run my wipers a lot less often in the rain - as the incoming rains beads up immediately, and slides off, making for a much less obscured view.

One of the niftiest things a...

I love this story. Classic shaggy dog story meets the info age.

A couple of peopel point out this kind of thing is slightly more likely to happen in private schools due to the direct connect between keeping the parents happy and the money coming in. There's no good answer, really.

So I look at this table, and I really want to know - where's the tax breaks for the rich? (Note - this is TOTAL federal tax burden, not just income tax).

Looks to me like the rich pay most of the taxes (top 20% pay 65% of the taxes, and the top 40% pay over 80% (!) of total federal taxes. Even if you define the middle class as the three middle quintiles (which I doubt it actually is, most places), those quintiles on tot up to 33%. If the poor are the two lowest quintiles (lowest 40% of the po...

Glenn Reynolds doesn't exactly need more traffic, but I'll give him some anyway.
