Items For the Easily Amused
Image by Boogies with Fish
I’m greatly relieved that Madang – Ples Bilong Mi now seems to be alive and kicking again. A recent double-whammy of weird interactions between plugins and some possible security problems conspired to knock me of of my own site and caused many readers to receive weird offers to download a mysterious "wordpress.gz" file, dump them to a 404 "Not Found" page, or behave normally, as the fortunes of fate dictated at the moment. I’m sad that this happened, because the last thing which I want to generate in my readers is frustration. My game is amusement, not apoplexy. If you do encounter any problems with the site, please inform me by email or leave a comment, if possible. I can’t fix anything which I do not know about. I’ll praise once again my WordPress guru, Michael VanDeMar, who, for a modest sum, plucked my precious baby from the tar pit and washed her clean. If you are a WordPress user, you will probably need Michael someday. Put him in your contacts now before you forget.
If you’re a long-time "local" in or around Madang, you will remember Doctors Michael "Mick" and Margaret Horwood who were the local sawbones in town for years. We lived in a small flat above their office. They are wonderful, caring doctors and excellent friends. Mick still comes up to Madang on occasion and dives with us. His son, Will, visited us with some of his fellow medical students some time ago. Will was visiting Sam Young, a friend in New York City and got this phenomenal shot of the skyline with an iPhone!
Not too shabby for something with an Apple logo on it. I confess to not being an Apple fan. Please don’t hate me. However, one of our co-workers has just arrived with a new iPad. In a couple of days I will deliver to you the definitive review of this absolutely fascinating, but seemingly useless product. I admit that I was mesmerised the first time that I squeezed my fingers together and watched the images shrink and then grew again when I moved my fingers apart. Mind blowing!
It clearly shows that it is really a starfish with the stubbiest possible legs. Yeah, yeah, I know that most people call them arms. But, we don’t walk on arms, do we? If somebody asks you how many arms a starfish has, answer, "Zero, dummkopf."
It is an extremely juvenile Bulb Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor). When I first saw this from a couple of metres away, I bubbled into my regulator, "What the . . ." It is very small, only about 20mm across. I honestly couldn’t say what it was until I got the shot on my computer and enlarged it. Seeing it big made it clear from the shape of the little bulbs with the . . . er . . . nipples on them (hey, what would you call them) that is is definitely an itsy-bitsy Bulb Anemone.
At the Madang Lodge Hotel and Restaurant there are several carving similar to this one of two old men and a dog in a canoe:
There is a guy in Madang who carves these. I think he may have a patent on the design. I have coveted these for years. Maybe if my new jobs work out, I may commission one. I don’t know where I’ll put it. Our house is so full of artifacts that we’re running out of wall space.
I’ve uploaded it to my server lager than usual so that you can see the raw hatred and anger on the face of this fish. If this fish had been a tiger, I’m certain that I wouldn’t be sitting here boring you into a catatonic state. Fish don’t usually react to me this way. Maybe it got out of bed on the wrong side.
Life over the web can be complicated if you do not take the right steps. There are many things you will have to do so you can achieve the goals you set out for, but you have to be sure you do not get ripped off in the process. This is why you have to explore every option before you will pick the deal that will work best for your site.
If you want to promote a WOW private server and you want to invest in ads that will bring you high quality traffic in turn, you have to focus on sites that relate to the topic. There are many sources people will visit when they want to learn more about MMORPG and you can advertise on their sites to attract players to your server.
The more sites you will use to promote a RuneScape private server, the more traffic you will get as well. Since you focus on traffic that will relate to what you are offering, your chances are very high to turn every visitor into a subscribed player. This is going to help you make the most of the game server you are running.
One of the things you have to keep in mind is that advertising the WOW private server on many sites at once is going to imply quite a few costs as well. Each site is going to charge you a fee for the ads you will place there and even if they do not cost too much, they will add up and this is going to increase the costs of operation.
Even if you will get more players to your RuneScape private server, the bill may get so high that you may have a tough time paying it. This is why you have to focus on sites that will offer the best value for your money and you should narrow down your list of partners to the ones that will deliver the results you are looking for.
A site that rates different game servers is going to provide one of the best solutions to promote a WOW private server. This happens because people visit it on a regular basis to learn about the latest additions and it is going to lead the right traffic to your site. One of the best examples for this is the one you can find at gtop100.com.
This is a site where you will find people interested in a RuneScape private server and they will be attracted by the ads you post on the site. It will cost only $ 1 to post your banner here and you can pay for a premium account that costs only $ 15. You can also submit your site to their list and you can get free votes from the site and from other users as well and you will get loads of quality traffic once you will climb to the top of their rankings.
