OK, the image update (part one of three I'm guessing) has been posted. I might do another one today, but realistically I have to tackle some IAM tasks instead, including:

  • Fix the IM bot.
  • Add about two weeks to all IAM accounts.
  • Build “coupon” system for BMEshop so BMEshop purchases give IAM access.
  • Allow images to be posted to forums.
  • Build tool to move forums from one user to another.

There's a lot more I have to do as well, but that's the core of it, and if I get those done I'll be content. Here's a quick sample of my morning mail:

You people are so messed up, you don't even know what the hell is happening, you will soon find out what hell is all about!!!!

Here's a sort of funny reply from someone who got their experience turned down. From their email I think it's obvious why their experience was turned down, so I'll save digging up the link:

hmm well itz dave and im kinda screwed for tha reason that i have WEBTV i cant go back to correct tha errors and i sed itz not safe u must not have read tha whole thong it was in the bottom of that expierence derrrr well im not using ur site ne more so dont expect ne more entries from me ill jus go to perforations or pierceit or tribalectic im pissed cuz i cant type worth shit and that took me 2 hours to do wen i wrote tha expierence about my tongue it wad tha same way so i think u DO have sum glitches in ur routine im outtie

You've got to love the “if you won't post my experience, I'll send it to a site with lower standards!” threat…. It just goes to show that there's a total lack of comprehension as to why there are requirements for spelling, grammar, length, layout, and so on.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
