Random Question

I've never asked this question: Of all the links on www.wisecounty.com, is there a popular one that is missing? Are there some which have no business being there? Any suggestions in general?

I created that layout in 1997 when my dial-up connection speed on the shores of Lake Bridgeport was 25% of normal (14,400 bps or something like that). I wanted to make it quick loading and graphic free. I still think people appreciate that.

I think you did a great job of getting essential stuff up there and find it very useful.

I've always thought it was odd that you have Bridgeport ISD and Decatur HS. Why not have Decatur ISD? You can get to the DHS website from there. Just a random thought....I really enjoy your blog.....Happy New Year!

I'd like you to add a link to Baylor sports.

Also, there's not a good link to free porn...preferably midget porn. That would be helpful.

if you wanted to you could add the bridgeport index web site, it would just make the messenger site look even better.

It would be a great public service if you would include links to volunteer opportunities like The Volunteer Center of North texas or !

how aboutadding a link to, i'm40andwantacatcausei'mafaaaaag.com ?

My all time favorite: http://www.usnpl.com/txnews.php

Then, fark, rotten, digg, drudgereport, pinkdome, lolcat, and slate.

Come on, Barry, let the people in on a few places that will open up their little red necks and get some blood flowing to their poor little shrunken heads.

Heck, even thrown txsharon a crumb. (Although I've never met ya, I love ya' girl!)

After all, you claim to be liberally lean.

Maybe you can add and update with Wise County happenings?

We elect you to post the "Wise County Happenings", 6:30PM. Please make recurring entries for the following:

The Wise County Rock & Mineral Society meetings;
Frilly's Karaoke Nites;
Grace Fellowship & "The church that Satan hates" activities;
When new library books come in;
18-wheeler overturns on the 287-380 loop;

and for sure, let us know when Decatur is stinkier than usual, so we can avoid driving on US 287.

You will be doing humanity a great service.

I agree with an earlier poster. I think Craigslist would be a good addition to the site.

Definetly need a new layout that would draw more attention...even some frequent updates...kind of like your own section of updates (be it news, pics, or just personal thoughts like what is on your blog), you can make it as big as you would like...it could be as big as your blog if you put some time into it!

I'd rather stare at the pattern they show when a TV station goes off the air than this simplistic depiction of a webpage layout.

How about a link to what's at the movie in Decatur. I can't find that anywhere else.

Ice Rocket and Ask.com are sort of useless. MSN is the other big search engine.

Raymond's suggestion as to a volunteer link is a good one.
Thanks for the link, Raymond.

And substance over form, Barry. Why waste your time on a new format?

Raymond said...

Actually, I just finished volunteer work with jaFortWorth (at Carson Elemetary) and mentoring at Walnut Hill in Dallas over the internet via IBM's Mentor Place.
All You All can do some volunteering too? in 2008?
