Visit Ken Levine's Blog

Mr. Levine writes yesterday from Chicago; his daughter attends school at nearby Northwestern.

I wish I could write like him.

The post I've linked to is an account of his visit here -- shameless 'homer' that I am, I wanted you to see a glowing account of our fair city from an independent third party. Even if he did get the name of the White Sox' ballpark wrong.

Chris, in particular, needs to see some positive things about Chicago, since he's recently griped about problems with his Chicago-based "webhost."

How does a blogger in Scotland wind up with a Chicago-based "webhost" anyway?

And what the heck is a "webhost"? Do they wear uniforms?

Nobody ever tells me anything....

I hope to visiting this summer for work. Well not actually in Chicago, but nearby Arlington Heights where our training center is located. Any tips on nearby sites that I can get to via taxi from Arlington Heights?

I'll hop over to read it . . .

I don't know about webhosts either. I hope they wear uniforms like that girl in the picture!

Chris said...

Webhost=company that hosts your webs.

Easy really. Why Chicago? They were cheap, why else?

Ask, and you will receive.... ;-)

Jean-Luc, I was kind of hoping for uniforms myself... but Chris seems to have busted that bubble for us.

I'm pretty sure Chris dresses like the girl over there--->

HTML = Hyper Text Markup Link, which should not be confused with pure pork sausage link!

I think it would be nice to have a Webhost whenever you log on ...

"Good evening, sir/madam - my name is Raoul and I shall be your Webhost for this evening. Our specials tonight are "A Little Piece of Me" with a side of "Skittles". I'll go get your drinks while you look over the menu and then I will be happy to take your order."

Sounds quite civilized, doesn't it? Of course figuring out the gratuity might be tricky!

*laughing* Chris, I was going to explain "webhost" but you beat me to it. I used to host both my own site and Chris's, but doing it from a home server is a bit like making your own bread: It requires lots of maintenance and patience, neither of which I have time for. So does that make me a "webhostess"?
Yes, Curmudgeon, I have hidden talents *grin*. Not only am I a "webmistress" (meaning I can make a website and maintain it) but I'm a "webhostess" as well. Sounds faintly kinky, doesn't it?

The Curmudgeon said...

Yes... it does....
