I don’t know who Ted is, but, I did get notifications from Cricket about a spammer called (Something or Other – I don’t remember the name. Don’t care what the name was. Wouldn’t say it out loud if I did remember.) After I read those Cricket posts, I continued going through my email. I found that there were repeated posts from the character in question. I went my page, wherein the posts occurred and found blank comment boxes. I did NOT go to the mystery person’s page, but, instead simply deleted the notifications from my inbox, after flagging just one of the blank posts, as per Cricket’s request.

Once in a while, there seems to be a lull in the activity here. I just kinda chalk it up to people having other things to do. I’m not too concerned about it.

As for my quietude, of late: I had a piece on the lathe for three weeks, and, finally, yesterday, decided to set it aside for later completion, and started something new. I should have it done shortly, and ready to post.

In conclusion: Everyone should just remain calm, and have another drink. The sky is not falling. A consistent human trait is that we really are maters at adapting to changing circumstances.

On a somewhat related note: Those “robot calls?” I don’t answer my phone anymore, unless I know, or have a reasonable suspicion that someone’s gonna call me – which is very rare. Like, waiting for someone to contact me about having left something in my car. Happened Wednesday. He got his wallet back today.

I feel the need, at this time, to share a tagline. Wait here a minute. I have to go find it…

Here it is:
The future is stupid.

Last night my friend asked to use a USB port to charge his cigarette, but I was using it to charge my book.

Last week, when RBS was here, she asked me to get the hummingbird feeder down so she could refill it. I asked her, “Are you too short?” Her answer was priceless. “Only on one end.” My reply to her was pretty good, too. “That’s okay. My legs go all the way to the ground.”

Hey Pottz!

Gees no Ted today! Maybe he ran out of Spam or he’s still sleeping. Don’t let him get on you nerves he’s been at this for sometime now. His interference just makes more work for Cricket. This Ted guy keeps registering with a different name it’s too bad Cricket can’t block his IP address.

I think this Ted guy just shot himself in the foot because seeing all those multiple post on one page it lets people that my have clicked on his link know he’s a scammer so he’s not very smart.

Mark is right about Robo Calls they are just as bad and I do the same as Mark I don’t answer the phone unless the caller is in my phone book and his or her name comes up on my phone.
I even changed my voice message to “leave a message I’ll call you back; I’m no longer answering calls.”

Anyway have a nice weekend and forget about this ted nut job.

I think I know what you are talking about Pottz. I got a million messages from the same guy promoting a web site. I agree we should band together if this pops up again. I would as the admin what can I do to help?

There is so little activity on this site because everyone is out in the shop eagerly starting in on those 16,000 amazing woodworking project plans!

yeah, we’re here, and now that it’s cooled off enough most of us can go into the shop without sweating off about 20 pounds just walking in there, we should see some more posts. With the Holidays creeping up on us, SOMONE’S gotta be making SOMETHING…...

I’m waiting until it gets warm enough to put on a topcoat. I can’t do anything until then, Ted or no Ted.

Just got the shop cleaned. The next few days will be spent in admiration. I mean, gimmie a break. It only happens every 6-8 months.
