Tim's Tip of the Day

Everthing, absolutely everything is in context. Because this medium is constantly evolving and taking on new roles the problem of context is particularly confusing. But since the web has the ability to be personal it is and will remain a means of information. Advertising, promotion and sales are all silly ventures that will all come and go but you and others will go to this medium to find things out.

Ensign Notes

I seem always to be so pressed for time, perhaps I want to get more than is possible into this site each day but in time our plan is to increase the level of automation. Right now all items and updates on this site are done manually.

November 15, 2002
Little by little the affects of September 11, 2002 are moving through our society, border tension, American Homeland Security and what's this high tech World War II Germany like identification cards for Canadians. The discomfort grows and this is a warning.
