World's First Tree-sitting Weblog

The Media 486

An anonymous reader writes "Amit Asaravala over at Wired News has an interesting article up about the tree-sitters in Humboldt County. Apparently a bunch of tech activists from the Indymedia Center are setting the tree-sitters up with an 802.11b network so that they can blog about all the logging going on up there. Seems like a pretty interesting way to use technology to help the environment, which isn't something you see everyday."

Awareness helps the environment.

It's perfectly reasonable to question how many people will ever read these blogs (aside from those who are already fully on board the movement). It may be preaching to the choir, but it could also be used as an effective alert system to get "the choir" quickly to the site of illegal action.

I'm sure their will also be a couple members of the more mainstream alternative media (folks like Willamette Week [wweek.com] , or even Harper's [harpers.org] ) who will spread some of the better stuff to the general public.

I know many such people and almost all of them see technology as the solution for our environmental problems.

I don't think you can characterize anyone who is pro-environment as anti-technology. Not everyone on /. thinks corporations are the spawn of evil. I do wonder if many people who are pro-environment know all of the pollution that chip manufacturers produce... etc.

However, for all of you who will slam others for their inconsistencies, keep in mind that it is almost impossible to be 100% consistent. Just because someone has decided to choose one area to focus their energies on for some good, and isn't trying to be super(wo)man and fix everything, that should not nullify any truth that is in their message. That should not be pointed out to discredit them, or make you seem smarter. Every bit of good helps.

PELT HANDLlNG FOR PROFlT

BEAVER PELT HANDLING

Nick Anderson Agent

REMOVlNG BEAVERS FROM TRAPS

Beaver should be removed from traps carefully, so not to damage the pelt. When trapping in winter, extra care must be taken. Remove the beaver from the trap as soon as it is out of the water, so it does not freeze to the metal. Be especially cautious where the water is shallow and the fur may have frozen to the ice. If the beaver should become frozen in the trap, allow it to
thaw before attempting removal. Never put a wet animal on or against anything to which it might freeze.

If the fur is dirty, wash the beaver in water. In winter, rub the animal in loose snow to clean and dry it. The snow will absorb extra moisture so that the fur does not freeze. Next, it is best to place the beaver in a burlap or feed type bag. This will prevent it from freezing to your truck or the type of equipment you are using.

SKlNNlNG THE BEAVER

Skinning the "open" pelt is much different than skinning the "cased" pelt. By this method, the animal is laid on its back on a clean place. With the beaver, the feet and tail are first cut off.

Cutting these parts from the beaver is not difficult but there is an easy way. On the tail at the first fringe of fur, there is a flat joint. This joint is about 1/4 inch into the fringe of fur. A little practice will make this joint easy to find and the tail can be cut off with one slice of the knife across the flat joint. Very close to the fringe of fur above the feet on the front legs is another joint. This joint can be felt with the finger and thumb and one cut across the joint with a sharp knife will sever the foot.

To cut off the hind foot, first, bend the foot forward towards the belly of the beaver, bending it fully forward at the heel. With the foot held this way, cut across the cords at the back of the foot and keep cutting all around the foot with it still bent forward. A snap sideways after this cut is finished will usually break the foot free from the leg.

The next step is to slit the pelt from the chin to the tail on the belly side and in a straight line (see Figure I). The pelt is then skinned back one side at a time to the back. When the legs are reached, do not slit them open but pull them through, pulling the hide off the way you would take off a sock. Be careful with the skinning knife around the leg because the skin is easily cut in these tender places. Skin carefully the head. Cut the ear off close to the skull. Skin around the eyes and nose and the pelt is free from the carcass.

Beaver castors, on both male and female, are found on each side and just forward of the vent. These should be removed carefully with a knife or pulled free with the thumb and finger so the sacks are not broken, which would let the oil run out. They should be tied at the cords and hung until dry. The more care used in removing and drying, the more castors are worth. They are used in making scents and perfumes.

THE DRYlNG BOARD

The drying boards are made from a single sheet of 4'x8'x3/4" plywood. Cut the sheet into three pieces measuring 32"x48". The drying board should be marked as shown. This is done on both sides of the board, giving you six stretching surfaces from one sheet of plywood.

The pattern template are available at no cost at Fur Harvesters Auction. Choose the line appropriate to the length of the pelt, and falten the head and tail to the drying board with the fur side down. The nails which are used to attach the pelt should extend at least I" above the pelt so that when the nailing of the pelt is complete, it can be raised off the board. This allows the air to circulate between the fur and the board (2" common nails work well). Place one nail behind the nose and one at the tail, and one at the mid-length on each side of the pelt.

IMPORTANT: The lines on the board should only be used as a guide to give you a consistent uniform shape. Using a tape measure, measure from the nail at the nose to the tail. Add this to the width measurement. The sum of the two will give you your GREEN size. Refer to size chart:

SlZlNG OVAL SHAPE O XXXL I XXL 2 XL 3 LGE 4 LM 5 MED 6 SMALL 7 CUB
70" & over 65"to 70" 60" to 65" 55" to 60" 51" to 55" 47" to 51" 42" to 47" Under 42"

This is where the trapper makes or loses money depending on how he or she boards the pelt. Always board the pelt 2" to 3" above the size tariff suited to the size of the pelt. The skin boarded at 61" GREEN, if it can be boarded 2" larger and still remain loose on the board would remain in the XL category. Two beaver of exactly the same quality when boarded differently can easily sell for a $5 - $10 difference.

Always remember a freshly boarded beaver will almost always shrink 2 to 3 inches during the drying process. Both pelts will fall into the large category but the grade of the two could be guite different. An example of this based on December 1995' sale would be as follows:

SHEARABLE GRADES:Size 3 (LGE) lPTll B $40.00
Size 3 (LGE) I&II HVY B $34.00
Size 3 (LGE) I-II SEMI B $24.00

NON-SHEARABLE GRADES: Size 3 (LGE) I-II FLAT B $17.00

The 56 inch beaver will have a far better chance of falling into one of the shearable grades as would the one at 59 inches, By boarding your beaver pelt pro trapper will be getting the best quality grade possible.

YOU WILL RECEIVE FAR MORE SHEARABLE GRADES BY BOARDING YOUR BEAVER LOOSELY THAN, THE PERSON WHO STRETCHES IT TIGHT: HE MAY GAIN IN SIZE, BUT THE MARKET IS DEMANDING A SHEARABLE PRODUCT:

Once you have determined your size, continue to nail the top half of the pelt to the board. Space the nails about 3/4" apart. When the top half is completed, continue to place nails at the same intervals along the bottom half of the pelt, until it has an even sided shape that follows the pattern on the board. This will help prevent over stretching which reduces the density of the fur and lessens its value.

The leg holes should not be left open because they give the pelt a rough appearance. It is preferred to sew the leg holes, but nailing them closed is also acceptable. After the leg holes have been closed, wash the leather lightly with water and rome paper towel or cloth. This will remove blood stains and light grease. The leather will take on a creamy whitish appearance. Next, lift the pelt up off the nails so the air can circulate under the skin.

Many trappers who use boards prefer to do the fleshing after the pelt has been tacked to the board! This should be done before the leg holes are closed.

DRYING

It is best to dry beaver pelts slowly. Temperatures of 55F-65F are desirable. Never put drying pelts near stoves or expose
them to hot sunlight. As the pelt dries, wipe the leather from time to time with a clean cloth. this removes any grease which may run from the leather.

MARKETlNG THE BEAVER

Over the years, more black spots have been showing up on the beaver. These marks are most often old scars. Old scars that are hard and brittle must be classified as slight damage. The reason for that is when they go into the tanning fluid, it will not penetrate the hard scars and when the knife used to thin the leather hits these scars, the pelt can be damaged.

BDLY DGD MANY CUTS OR HOLES OVER 30% DGD
13. GOOD SLT DGD A SHEARABLE SLT CUTS, SCARS

There are very few select pelts. A grade pattern is established primarily because all the pelts are inter sorted. If you
have a pelt worth $50 you would not expect it to be put with pelts worth $40, as the maximum you would realize
would be $40. This is what necessitates fine grading.

PRlMENESS IN BEAVER

The underfur of the beaver is almost absent in the summer. However, towards fall, these hairs start to grow. The last place on the animal where they finish growing is the back of the neck. In the fall, they are quite short. However a full prime skin will have hair on the back of the neck, approximately 3/4" long. This is why when grading, the back of the neck is felt. The amount of resistance the hand feels in rubbing the beaver against the grain of the fur, indicates the density of the underfur. When it is very flat, it is called a II or III. As it comes into prime, the hair thickens and it can be classified as I PT II or I-II, depending on how thick the fur grows. Once the full length of the hair has been reached, the fur and pelt start to become over-prime. The beaver, because of its long stay in the house and sour feed source, has been using its body fat to produce fur and keep warm. As this progresses, the underfur starts to turn "off" color or reddish. This occurs in a spring beaver and is referred to as red rump. It starts at the tail and progresses up the flank, rendering the beaver useless for plucking and shearing, because the red stain goes below the 12mm level. This is the reason fall beaver pelts are much more desirable than spring pelts.

If your beaver pelts are sent to Fur Harvesters Auction and they are consistently graded I-II HVY, I-II SEMI on your returns, your handling is satisfactory.

Not satisfied! Ask... at a trapper education course or at our annual convention. Ask someone you know who does a top job and they will be glad to share their knowledge. Time, practice and interest make the finest fur handlers.

Indeed, whimsy is an open account (for posting whimsical diaries) whose password is 'whimsy'. I've contributed some diaries (principally, "I was there watching the world go by" and "How to calculate your social security income") and so have felt free to abuse the account for comment posting in Anne Marie stories. My guess is the other whimsy poster is tewl, since she posted something about "oh, I didn't realize annemarie=cp" in k5tt a while back.

I share your incredulity. Anyone who reads through k5tt would know the truth. Anyone who suspected could do a search on my (cp's) comments and see I only post in anne marie's stories. Oh well. It's fun to see rusty defend me.

[county] I had to break them, though! And they had to break me.
[county] It was very sexual.
[bc] I do more than 5 miles usually, and by God, every step is pain
[bc] every step sends shockwaves of sheer agony around my foot and up my leg
[county] Why don't you get more comfortable shoes?
[bc] and after my ritual 5000 steps every day, I feel like a new man. I feel improved. I feel like the sin has been flushed out.

[county] I get on the bus with four other girls, three of them are together.
[county] I mean with four girls.
[First_Incision] I also have a pair of these that are 3 years old, I trust they will last my whole life.
[county] I'm a guy, of course. Heh.
[county] The lone girl tries to be friendly with the three, and they're quite terse and rude, and then when she gets off, they spend the next five minutes mocking her.
[county] It made me weep.
[bc] Yes. You'd never do something like that, of course.
[county] I wouldn't.
[county] She was quite pretty, too.
[county] Her face had a strange, intense look to it.
[bc] perhaps you should have recorded the conversation the girl had and slipped it into her pocket anonymously come monday
[bc] girl/girls
[county] Her voice and attitude were intoxicating in their simplicity and ingenuousness!
[county] And I will never see her again :(
[county] The other girls were ill-formed masses of pimpled, greasy, misshapen flesh.
[county] The soul truly is reflected in the face and body.
*** momocrome is now known as Yanni
[shoeboy] indeed
[bc] Fascinating county, but, considering that you have shown your capcity for malice here many times, I suspect that while you doubtless thought this girl pure and interesting, you in fact liked her because she was similar to yourself (the usual reason for attraction) - full of malice. I suspect the criticism of the other girls (who were likely good, and therefore opposed to you, and quite alien) was justified.
[shoeboy] this is why I can't wipe the smirk off my face no matter how hard I try
[county] I didn't see any reason to suppose this girl courted malice, bc.
[county] Anyway, I think it's been well-established that I can't take it, at all.
[county] I wouldn't be attracted to a cruel person.

[county] Frankly, I'm just not seeing a niche market between masturbation and actual women.
[county] Those two seem to have the demand pretty much satisfied.
[Yanni] perhaps it will become an appliance as common as a refrigerator or microwave oven
[county] For $920, you could have a girlfriend for a month or two.
[Yanni] reading into a little, these dolls talk, have articulated skeletons
[county] For $920, you could masturbate for decades!
[First_Incision] the e-conomy is all about inventing niche markets that don't exist.
[Yanni] $920 would get you 2 hours with a clean-ish whore
[county] For $920 I could buy a fancy hat that would get that wonderful bus girl to notice me.
[county] I'm having scads of fun falling in infatuation with girls from the bus. I hadn't anticipated this at all, but it's immensely enjoyable.
[Yanni] for $920 / month, you could afford a fancy enough car to get a bell town beauty

Indeed, whimsy is an open account (for posting whimsical diaries) whose password is 'whimsy'. I've contributed some diaries (principally, "I was there watching the world go by" and "How to calculate your social security income") and so have felt free to abuse the account for comment posting in Anne Marie stories. My guess is the other whimsy poster is tewl, since she posted something about "oh, I didn't realize annemarie=cp" in k5tt a while back.

I share your incredulity. Anyone who reads through k5tt would know the truth. Anyone who suspected could do a search on my (cp's) comments and see I only post in anne marie's stories. Oh well. It's fun to see rusty defend me.

By MV - Why Scott Lockwood Sucks (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 11 years ago | (#4880544)

As quite possibly the only member of the old-school Slashdot trolls to ever actually attempt a serious and meaningful conversation with Mr. Lockwood (it worked, briefly), I feel compelled to comment on this.

That Geekizoid is an inanity is beyond dispute. That it is what it is almost entirely because of Mr. Lockwood is also beyond dispute. That Mr. Lockwood has, furthermore, contributed substantially to the deterioration of every site to which he has ever posted, save only those which were beyond redemption before he ever saw them (a category which arguably includes Slashdot), I will not dispute. That all of this, along with the other charges leveled against him, proves that Mr. Lockwood sucks, I will not dispute.

The real question behind all this, though, is not whether Mr. Lockwood sucks, but why Mr. Lockwood sucks. One might say that it does not matter, noting, by analogy, that one does not psychoanalyze a rabid dog, but instead simply puts it out of its misery. But it does matter, for in his own odd and frightening way, Scott Lockwood is Everyman. If you do not understand him, you do not understand anyone, probably including yourself.

Everyone, seemingly, detests Mr. Lockwood. Given that he had been married four times before he turned 30, this "everyone" may well include three ex-wives (last I heard, we're still waiting for his inevitable fourth divorce). From various anecdotes he has let drop over the years, there are a variety of real-life acquaintances, co-workers, and blood relatives in this category as well. So clearly, this is not just an online phenomenon; Mr. Lockwood is not a caring, sensitive man who lets off steam late at night by flaming people on weblogs. He is like this all the time. It is not a pose. It is the real Scott Lockwood, at 200 proof.

Mr. Lockwood himself is not unaware of this. He knows (and wishes it were not so) that dislike follows him around like the odor of alcohol trails after a drunk. But he has no idea why this is so. He knows it has to do with his abrasive and temperamental demeanor; he knows that his argumentative and self-righteous comments, and his complaints of being mistreated, win him no friends. But the connection between the cause and the effect, and the difference between his conduct and most other people's, escapes him. He has given up hope of understanding or improving the situation; he expects that it will continue, without change, for the rest of his life.

Mr. Lockwood does not understand that all of these things are symptomatic of a malaise that underlies his entire life. It is a condition that he was very nearly born with, and one which victimizes nearly all people to some degree. Most of us are not nearly as bad off as Mr. Lockwood; but there are some that have much more severe cases than him. Many rapists, murderers, and other violent criminals fall into that latter category. But even those of us who merely think ourselves better or smarter than everyone else, or who consider ourselves fit to decide what is right for everyone else, or who mock others for what they believe, are victims of this condition to some degree. I include myself in this; I do not claim (yet) to be speaking from a perspective completely outside the state of disease.

Mr. Lockwood's problem, to put it simply, is that he perceives the universe to be antagonistic to him. He has divided the universe into Self and Other, and decided that these two are eternal antagonists. Everything is his enemy; every action that anyone takes (other than to praise him), he perceives as some sort of attack, and he retaliates accordingly. He is convinced, although probably only subconsciously, that his life is a war in which he stands alone against all the forces of the universe. It is, in essence, the ultimate in paranoia.

As I wrote above, nearly everyone shares this condition to some extent. Many serial killers operate on the principle that, life being a never-ending battle that they will ultimately lose, they should take as many of the "enemy" with them as they can before they fall. But even ordinary people mostly act on analogous principles. Many people exploit the world around them in destructive or insensitive ways, or mistreat their fellow humans needlessly. This is all a consequence of defining the Other as an enemy; and this, in turn, is based on the fundamental error of dividing the universe into Self and Other.

What we all (Mr. Lockwood included) should strive for is an end to this division, which is really only a matter of mental habits, not an a priori property of existence. It derives from the infant's perception that part of what he perceives obeys his will and sends him sensory input (Self), and the rest does not (Other). The antagonism between these two hypothesized entities derives from the instinctive desire on the child's part to impose his will on everything; Other does not do what he wants, and is therefore the enemy. And so the infant makes the fundamental error that haunts him, in most cases, for the rest of his life.

This is what makes Mr. Lockwood tick. It is probably also what makes you tick. Think about that carefully before flaming him simply because his case is a bit worse than yours -- if indeed you are better off.

You're more verbose than I am! I never knew that about you :)

I'd like to get my two cents in; mainly, I don't agree with your characterization of those who get trolled, for two reasons: (a) I've been trolled myself more than once :) (ask 70%), and (b) I just don't think of it as an adversarian relationship; they may sometimes be a bit clueless, but they're helping to make my troll a success and I'm grateful for that. Much of what I write is a "what's wrong with this picture" puzzle, and if so, I can hardly fault people for solving it, can I?

Another thing is that responders don't always spout conventional wisdom; in fact, I'd describe the libertarian/capitalist and misogynist RWMs as an exaggeration of conventional wisdom, at least the kind on Slashdot. The goal there IMHO is to get people to agree! You've also got people like the ones who explained the Quaker faith and the AFSC in my recent FBI troll: How many Slashbots know the AFSC from their elbow? Not many. There was a real need to inform people there, and I was hoping somebody would. The fact is, I meet a lot of nice, sensible people (nicer and more sensible than me, anyhow :) who respond to my trolls, and most of them are good sports about it when I tell them I'm a troll.

I'm also not comfortable with the "elite" thing. IMHO we should try not to congratulate ourselves too much. This gets back to the "adversarial relationship" thing, I guess. I'd like the tone of the FAQ to be more "letting them in on the joke" than "ha ha, sucker".

Next: Cri de coeur should be italicized, dammit! :)

Lastly: I dig the "ritual reaction" thing, but I couldn't parse the rest of that riff about metaphor and metonymy at all. IHBT? :)

Esther Sassaman - Hotshot Journalist On The Rise (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 11 years ago | (#4880569)

Surely, Mr. Traficant is quaking in his boots at the prospect
of being interviewed by Ms. Sassaman. Ms. Sassaman's reporting
is the most hard-hitting; the most insightful; the most
fact-based. Every interview she does (how many... two now?) opens
a Pandora's box of corruption and intrigue.

Ms. Sassaman concocts many a rich fantasy in her clouded mind. Her
writing never seems to hit the mark. That is because it is never
based in anything resembling reality. How many times have we been
teased with suggestions of "having it cold" that a "certain large
company" is involved in far-reaching scandal? How many times have we
been promised penetrating interviews with the rich and famous?

I think it has become painfully obvious that Ms. Sassaman lives in
a world completely of her own manufacture. "I'm going to interview Jamez
Traficante." "I'm going to blow the lid off of nookie." "I'm going
to expose the corruption going on in Russian Blue cat farms."

Yes. We believe you, Esther. Now, go in for your schizophrenia
treatment and quiet down.

Now, there is nothing wrong with living in a fantasy. And there is
nothing wrong with setting goals for yourself. But Kuro5hin has had
enough of Ms. Sassaman's blatant and admitted trolling and attention
farming. After having read this diary entry several times, I can see
no other purpose than to say to all of Kuro5hin: "Look at me! I'm a
hot-shot journalist and I'm going to interview Jamez Traficante! Please
heap your adulation on me now!"

Sorry, not this time. Perhaps a better place to have posted this
diary would have been Adequacy [mnsmc.edu] ,
which is the intended victim of this fantasy interview. What, pray tell, was
the reason for posting this here? To get more traffic for Adequacy,
which has been in steady decline for several months now? Probably. And,
of course, personal attention.

In summary, I guess I can only point out that I have spoken to people who
were under the influence of LSD and still had more grounding in reality than
Ms. Sassaman. Perhaps she would do well to pack her knapsack and hitch a
ride to China, where her delusions of grandeur and fantasies of conspiracy
could be put to good use in a propaganda machine.

Evil Is Good (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 11 years ago | (#4880589)

Why Evil is Good

I hate victims. Victims are the albatross hung from the neck of society. The
term is not even acknowledged by any other species. I am certain if there are
intelligent beings elsewhere in the universe, they follow the strict principle
of Natural Selection. Only the Strong shall survive. Mankind cannot survive
as long as its virility is diluted by the weak.

Peace-and-Love hippies, retards, cripples, depressives, sickling, addicts
and whiners are all victims of one kind or another. Larger examples of victims
can also be found: the entire nations of Israel and Englund, for example, are
constantly victimized and/or whining about their lack of power in the world. In
fact, the entire continent of Europe is nothing but a festering sewer of whiners
and welfare states. If we, the strongest nation on Earth, had a decent Ruler,
the entire junk-heap of Eurotrash would be burned to create a cloud of such lethal
density it would waft over to Asia and take out the victims that were left over from
World War II. The great black column of suffocating smoke would rise high into the
atmosphere, reaching for the very edges of outer space - a giant, living monument
to our strength. The unviable ashes of the once living garbage would orbit the Earth,
forever reminding future generations of the price of weakness.

World War II. Probably the greatest single era in the history of the planet, barring
the time before Man and Man's distorted, unnatural philosophies of "common good" and
"protecting the innocent". The time of Germany and its rule by a man of great vision.
A man who saw the virtue of evil. Every single class of victim described above was
dealt with in the harshest possible manner. Most people focus on the genocidal aspect
of Hitler's activities but his vision was much wider, encompassing every brand of
weakling from ethnic victims to sexual deviants. Unfortunately the United States,
led by a cripple, had to involve our great military might on the wrong side of the
war. The least Roosevelt could have done was to allow Germany to finish raping
France and reduce Englund to rubble.

We paid for our mistake in World War II. We were punished for choosing the wrong
side in the Great War by a period of non-violent "Cold War". The term "Cold War"
itself is the mark of the true Beast: the peace lover. A true leader - a Ruler -
would have unleashed the full might of our nuclear arsenal upon every nation on the
Earth, banishing them forever to particles of glowing dust blowing through the winds
of history. And look what our lack of action has gotten us: A planet filled with
human garbage, eternal sufferers suckling from the breast of the Mighty.

It is beyond my comprehension. Not only am I forced to allow the weak to survive,
but I - we - are forced to subsidize their pathetic existence. Every cripple
creeping along the sidewalk. Every degenerate elderly woman with osteoporosis who
parks in the handicap parking spot. Every worthless, lazy hippy who cries for peace
and marches on a public university. Every sickling child perpetually hospitalized
because its fetid welfare mother smoked too many drugs during her pregnancy. Every
30 year old retard wiping its nose all over its Scooby Doo coloring book. Every
drunk little whore seeking "justice" in our courts for her rape. All of them,
and more, deserve nothing but death. In the Natural World, every single one of these
leeches would be lion fodder.

Even the "Good Book", the Bible - which is actually nothing more than the sick fantasies
of opium addicts - predicts the outcome of Nature: "The meek shall inherit the Earth".
Yes, I know what you're saying, but you are wrong. This phrase has been twisted by the
weak, the cripple, the Jew to give their pathetic lives some ray of hope. This phrase
does not mean that the Victim will Rule the world. That is laughable. That is impossible.
The meek shall inherit the Earth for the one and only reason that they will be buried in
it.

To the strong who have read this: Thank you. Together, we will conquer. To the weak who
will whine in the comments below: Your days are numbered, trash.

ROGER: Three and half minutes...
MIMI: I'm giving up my vices. I'm going back -- back to school. Eviction or not, this week's been so hot; as long as I've got you I know I'll be cool. I couldn't crack the love code, dear, til you made the lock on my heart explode! It's gonna be a happy new year! A happy new year!
MARK: Coast is clear; you're supposed to be working, that's for midnight, where are they? There isn't much time.
MIMI: Maybe they're dressing. I mean what does one wear that's apropos for a party -- that's also a crime?
MAUREEN: Chips, anyone?
MARK: You can take the girl out of Hicksville, but you can't take the Hicksville out of the girl!
MAUREEN: My riot got you on TV, I deserve a royalty.
MIMI: Be nice you two, or no god awful champagne.
MAUREEN: Don't mind if I do. No luck?
ROGER: Bolted plywood, padlocked with a chain. A total dead end
MAUREEN: Just like my ex-girlfriend Honey...? I know you're there ... Please pick up the phone. Are you okay? It's not funny. It's not fair. How can I atone? Are you okay? I lose control, but I can learn to behave. Give me one more chance; let me be your slave! I'll kiss your Doc Martens, let me kiss your Doc Martens; your every wish I will obey!
JOANNE: That might be okay. Down girl, heel...stay! I did a bit of research with my friends at legal aid. Technically, you're squatters: there's hope. But just in case...
MARK AND JOANNE: Rope!
MARK: We can hoist a line --
JOANNE: To the fire escape --
MARK: And tie off at...
MARK AND JOANNE: That bench!
MAUREEN: I can't take them as chums.
JOANNE: Start hoisting...wench!
ROGER: I think I should be laughing, yet I forget, forget how to begin. I'm feeling something inside, and yet I still can't decide, if I should hide or make a wide open grin. Last week I wanted just to disappear; my life was dust, but now it just may be a happy new year. A happy new year.
COLLINS: Bond -- James Bond!
ANGEL: And Pussy Galore -- in person!
MIMI: Pussy -- you came prepared!
ANGEL: I was a boy scout once, and a brownie, til some brat got scared.
COLLINS: Aha! Moneypenny -- my martini!
MIMI: Will bad champagne do?
ROGER: That's shaken -- not stirred.
COLLINS: Pussy -- the bolts.
ANGEL: Just say the word!
MIMI: Two minutes left to execute our plan.
COLLINS: Where's everyone else?
ROGER: Playing Spiderman.
MARK: Ironic close up: tight. On the phone machine's red light. Once the Boho boys are gone, the power mysteriously comes on... [www.hg]

Wyatt Earp (1029) | more than 11 years ago | (#4880598)

"Seems like a pretty interesting way to use technology to help the environment, which isn't something you see everyday."

In helping the environment you mean they want the forests to remain as is and not evolve and keep the forests nice and tight so a fire will take everything out.

The evolution of a western United States forest doesn't stop at the large conifers, fires are supposed to clear out the conifers so the next phase of the forest continues.

We fight fires, so the forests remain coniferous. For the last few decades clear cutting has been replaced with selective cutting, but yahoos like these hippies want things to remain static. Well a forest of big pine bombs waiting to go off will just cause one hell of a fire someday and the trees will still be dead.

Bah to the hippies.

I was talking with rusty indirectly about this, last
night. He was asking me why I wanted k5 Anne Marie's
nick -- that is, why I wanted to carry that "slashdot
baggage" over with me to k5, the same way siggy did.
It's funny, that way. I wanted k5 Anne Marie because
it's a lovely character troll of mine. Siggy wanted
"Signal 11" because it's the only way he's ever gotten

If you're blogging about logging,
While sitting in a tree,
Then the chances are,
You're a geek hippie.

Swaying in the branches,
Laptop in your hands,
No safety net to speak of,
Just a couple of rubber bands.

Be safe up in the treetops,
And please try not to fall,
Despite all that long hair,
You will not bounce at all.

Bah, I'd hate this, but then I'm too much a karmawhore at heart. But if we could somehow increase the amount of quality moderation (to get rid of brainless drivel, not just spam) and rely on our abilities to craft quality-sounding trolls, then I wouldn't complain too much if we got rid of karma altogether and got rid of the +1 bonus along with it. Originally, the +1 bonus was reserved by just a few, but now every lamer and his dog has it. It's lost all meaning.

I'd been thinking along the lines of hiding usernames during moderation, if nothing else than to help us trolls with recognizable usernames who get unfair moderation simply for being trolls in general than just on a particular post. I can see several0 problems, though:

1) It won't stop the most dedicated of trollbusters who will keep a separate window open as AC where they can see people's usernames. These are the moderators who most need to be stopped, and yet this restriction won't do so.

2) It will add a social cost to moderating itself. People might just start throwing their points at crap just to get back to normal mode where they can see who's talking. But it could cut both ways.

3) It'll increase the amount of noisy replies screaming: "Moderators! Don't you realize streetlawyer/flatpack/etc. is the one saying this?!?!?!" We don't need that.

4) You'd have to hide .sig files as well. Not a big deal.

Indeed, whimsy is an open account (for posting whimsical diaries) whose password is 'whimsy'. I've contributed some diaries (principally, "I was there watching the world go by" and "How to calculate your social security income") and so have felt free to abuse the account for comment posting in Anne Marie stories. My guess is the other whimsy poster is tewl, since she posted something about "oh, I didn't realize annemarie=cp" in k5tt a while back.

I share your incredulity. Anyone who reads through k5tt would know the truth. Anyone who suspected could do a search on my (cp's) comments and see I only post in anne marie's stories. Oh well. It's fun to see rusty defend me.

The History of William Scott Lockwood (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 11 years ago | (#4880709)

WSL throughout the ages!

William Scott Lockwood 1 - Born 1924 to unknown parents. Abandoned in a trash can in New Orleans by his opium-addicted prostitute mother just minutes after birth. Raised in a Catholic orphanage staffed by pedophile priests. Named himself "William Scott Lockwood 1", combining the names of his three favorite Priests/lovers at the orphanage. After puberty, the priests started to ignore him in favor of the younger boys, and he felt jealous and alienated. He ran away at age 14 and lived in the gayest part of the French Quarter, sucking cocks for spare change. At age 17, his first and only sexual encounter with a female (a woman on Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras who claimed she was actually a male Drag Queen) resulted in the conception of a child. The woman, Fannie Sassaman, quickly left town and gave birth to the child in secret, without telling WSL1 that they had conceived a son together. WSL1 died in 1949 when his herpes infection migrated to his brain.

William Scott Lockwood 2 - Born 1942 to Fannie Sassaman by WSL1. Originally named Ezekiel Sassaman and raised as a good Jewish boy. A botched circumcision by a drunken Mohil left him with an almost nonfunctional penis. From the ages of 3 to 8, he was forced by his mother to shovel coal on a railroad for a living. At age 8, he learned of the true identity of his father, converted to Catholicism, and went to New Orleans to search for his father. (Fannie Sassaman's story doesn't end there, but we'll save it for a later date.) Ezekiel Sassaman renamed himself William Scott Lockwood 2 after his father, who he found lying dead in a gutter when he reached New Orleans. He joined up with a railroad hobo gang, and spent the next two decades riding the rails and carrying out a string of brutal rapes and murders around the country. His damaged penis kept him from conceiving any children, but in 1969, God blessed him with a miracle: one of the women he raped conceived a child. He married her, and shortly thereafter, WSL3 was born. WSL2 quit the railroad gang after his son's birth and settled down with his victim/wife. He is still wanted by the FBI as one of the most notorious serial killers of this century. He is considered heavily armed, extremely dangerous, and morbidly obese. Let the FBI know if you have seen this man. [geekizoid.com] They have offered a $1,000,000 reward for any information leading to his arrest, capture, or death. After a recent sighting at an Illinois hospital, he is once again at large.

William Scott Lockwood 3 - Born 1969 to a nondescript obese housewife by WSL2. Much has already been written about the life of this man [slashdot.org] , so I won't cover territory that has already been excellently covered by others before me. Oh, and he runs an obscure website [sporks-r-us.com] , but only about 5 people actually visit it. Currently struggling with AIDS, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, chronic stress, liver disease, herpes, genital warts, crabs, the Clap, bad acne, morbid obesity, hypertension, and several unidentified illnesses.

William Scott Lockwood 4 - Born 1992 to Wife #2 by WSL3. Mentally scarred by the abuse and molestation he suffered at the hands of his father at a young age. At age 3, he convinced his mother to divorce WSL3, but that didn't stop the abuse, as WSL3 began a campaign of stalking against Wife #2 and WSL4. WSL4 holds the world record as the youngest person to independently get a restraining order issued against his own father, in 1996 at the age of 4. WSL3 lost interest in WSL4 on his sixth birthday, reportedly saying "they're just not sexy anymore when they get that old." His father left him with an AIDS infection, though, and he isn't expected to last much longer.

It's good to see you making a go at it again, but I'm
confused as to why you're trying to whore up a
bitchslapped account, because no matter what your
karma is, you'll never stop defaulting to -1 (just ask
warren). Your only option would be to start a new
account -- "DMG" is still available....

James can answer you better than I, but Jon Erikson is
definitely not dead. I'm surprised to confirm that
there aren't any comments on his users.pl page, but I
guess this week belongs to Dan Hayes.
