2 happy announcements

Postby Shiro on Mon Apr 23, 2001 12:32 am

The first: Emily's computer is <B><big>FUNCTIONAL!!!!!!</big></B> I can get my site back! Now, to get it working again.<P>The second: If I'd had my website back, I would have wished everybody a happy Shakespeare's birthday from the excuses page. But I'll just have to do it in the forum. He's 437 today. Happy birthday, Bill.<P>And in his honor, here's what imho is his coolest sonnet.<P>SONNET 130
My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask'd, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare. <P>

What a relief to know you can get your files back!!!!!!!!! I know for SURE you're considering making an alternate backup somewhere now, eh? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>on another note, I love that sonnet... I think that's the one I had to recite in school once...

Oh yeah, I'll be burning backups <I>every three months.</I> And using Norton religiously. <P>As soon as I can get the FTP set up, I will fix my website and do something about those images. I think I may have hit 50 meg, so I probably won't have pictures in the excuses page anymore. Maybe I'll have one every two weeks that doesn't stay in the folder.<P>And somewhere along the line I will have to e-mail the Keenspace honchos and beg for more space for my daily comics, and my modest ( <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/tongue.gif">) art page. Or move the art page offsite...<P>The sonnet - yeah, isn't that awesome? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif">
