Katrina Find

Here’s new site set up just today by Deacon Dan (found in a comment at Blogs for Bush):

New site I’m trying to promote – www.katrinafinder.us. I built it today as a way, I hope, to help folks find loved ones in the disaster area. My sister was in Gulfport, Mississippi, when Katrina hit, and we haven’t heard from her. We’re hoping, but I needed to do something more, and that site was built today over my lunch hour.

I’d appreciate it if you could include a word about it when you’re out n’ about and blogging. And if you have any suggestions or want to help with the code, I’d gladly give out the “keys to the kingdom” to the FTP part of the site, and you can help me jimmy the code so it works better. Or if you run across people who want to help, point ’em my way, and we’ll get it set up.

I’m going to also put out some press releases tonight, and noise it about on the blogs, so hopefully people will find it useful.

Thanks, folks!

Dan, our prayers are with you and your family.

Thank you for setting this up.

If anyone can help out, please do.

Dish Network's New Ad Campaign

Dish Network’s new ad campaign consists of people whose T.V. “sucks”. Their T.V.’s act like vacuums, things fly, and stick, to the T.V. set. The guest says something like, “What’s going on?”, the homeowner says, “My T.V. sucks, doesn’t yours?” The guest says, “No, I have Dish Network, it doesn’t suck.”

Now my four year old is asking if things suck. I really don’t need my four year old doing that, or using that word.

In my opinion, the new Dish Network ad campaign sucks.
