I have two things....
ONE.... I abso-toodel-oot-ly LOVE the new forum colors! Made me realize how "un-cool" the other colors were! Deb/Terra did a supreme job of picking colors. http://www.aota.net/ubb/wink.gif
TWO.... I finally get to taste a spoonful of SUCCESS!!!!! I launched my website but a week ago, till yesterday I had been receiveing about 100-115 pageviews a day. But now I got mentioned and linked on alot of very popular sites.
Yesterday I more than tripled my pageviews to a grand total of 640! Today I should be expecting more around 10pm-midnight because I am still listed today.

Hi there - I took a look, nice site. One little suggestion I have is to think about adding a pixel or two of cellpadding to your tables - it will move the text (especially the left flush stuff) off the table border.

Thanks Mandi, I will be playing around with that tomorrow. Right now I have studying to do! http://www.aota.net/ubb/wink.gif

i have no idea what a beanie is!
can someone enlighten me?

Graham a beanie is like a bean bag toy in the form of a doll... Hey I don't understand two things on beanies.
Don't understand the popularity and insane prices people will pay for those things. But that's good for Bi4Be I suppose.
Why are they called beanies at all? They don't use beans, there filled with little plastic things much like hacky sacks.
Don't mind me. Just ranting. Did check out the site though, nicely laid out and designed. Congrats

They are small (fit in your hand) lil stuffed animals (bean bag type of stuffing) that have for reasons unknown (even to the collectors) started an expensive habit of collecting and selling in the US (and elsewhere?)
These lil $5 toys have turned into a multi billion dollar industry selling for as much as thousands of dollars each (or something expensive like that)
The only Beanie Baby I have is from a McDonalds Happy Meal hehe but many others are quite fasinated by (addicted to?) these lil gems.
They are now collectors items with a nice price tag to go with them if you get your hands on the right ones http://www.aota.net/ubb/wink.gif
That's my best explanation http://www.aota.net/ubb/smile.gif Official home page http://www.beaniebabies.com

I admit I am one of those addicts. They are great. The McDonalds ones are really neat because they fit in your pocket (I admit that too, I am a pocket stuffed critter addict)
Bi4Be, congrats on your sucess!!

Please and thank you

Lol Armand and Del! too funny! I really needed that today, too! http://www.aota.net/ubb/smile.gif
Thanks for the site comments, and *very* good explanation Deb! I see you've done your research! http://www.aota.net/ubb/wink.gif
JULIE: Nice to see there's a couple of "us" here at FQ. Well, I really don't collect them as much anymore... I used to go crazy with them! Now I switched to a passion for them to a passion for creating websites for them. Funny comparison now that I think about it...
Well anyways, now I started rambling...
By the way Julie: All those retirements keep on coming and coming!
The following is screamed while nervously twitching in horror as I pull my hair out:
MAKE THEM STOP! MAKE THEM STOP! PLEASE MAKE THEM STOP! I CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE!

And I thought I was the weird one today... not even close I guess compared to.. well..umm. Thought I was weird for yelling at e-mails from poets out loud!
Anyways thanks on the smoking smiley... the creation of one bored mind stuck on the forums too long... http://www.arcanumcafe.com/images/smokey.gif ... hmmm, after that psychedelic comment think I need a more 70's smiley <eg>.
03-10-1999, 07:39 PM
Ummmm.... OK.... how should I say this....
I was being a "tad" ~WEIRD~ yesterday. Just nevermind all of those beanie comments! I obviously didn't have enough caffeine. http://www.aota.net/ubb/wink.gif
But I am happy to report I have returned to full senses, my caffeine IV must of gotten disconnected or run out or something.
Eitherway, I am sucking down Pepsi after Pepsi over here. So don't worry about me people!
Thanks for understanding,
