cream skin

 

So who does not want a mini, cream skinned alabaster voodoo doll to call their own? You band them shape them, do just about whatever you want with them. Put them into a box until you need them and then take them out when you have need.

These dolls are customised to within a mm of their perfet little lives – you can even choose the colour of the pubic hair. I can see people collecting harems full of them in plush Victorian doll’s house for some other wordly celebrations and maybe getting them a little bit whipped into the bargain – all built for a high-charger if somewhat odd experience….

Tracking Down Anonymous Bloggers

Tracking Down Anonymous Bloggers

The use of linguistic identity markers to track down bloggers. You can run – but you can’t hide! The idea that bloggers can remain anonymous could never be further from the truth. There are many ways that your identity can be tracked down. The same applies to blog commentors and forum trolls. There is a trail of breadcrumbs that drops from your pockets all the way along the internet!

Let’s start first with how to track down the owner of a site – I can use a real example here – I needed to find the owner of a disused domain creamchargers.org.uk for a client that wished to purchase it. The reason being that they sold whipped cream chargers on various sites but were keen to get hold of the exact match for SEO purposes they already woned a few sites with catchy whipped cream themed names but wanted to nail the number one spot with the “chargers” in the title.

 

Many people aren’t aware of it but all domain owners are registered with a central agency – the agency depends upon wether it is a .com .org .co.uk etc. This one was made simple because creamchargers.org.uk ended with a uk domain. If it was a .com then it is possible that the owner might have opted for using an proxy owner which would have made it all significantly harder! With a .uk domain (.org.uk .co.uk) then the owner can hide their contact details but not their name. This is actually only for non-trading individuals if you run the website as a business then you would need to disclose all of your contact details.

So with the name – I simple used the modern super-sleuth tool of Facebook to locate and message all of the people in the UK with the same name – luckily it wasn’t a John Smith!

Other methods for tracking down website owners include using tools that search for other websites that have the same google analytics tracking code or the same amazon affiliate id. The first one is particularly useful because  a lot of bloggers have multiple sites, some they choose to anonymity and others that they want to be found. It is very likely that both would have the same analytics tracking code use. There are loads of online tools for this but try reverseinternet.com for a start.

SO how about tracking down the people that comment on a blog? Well that is difficult to do from the outside but the owner of the blog will get data with every comment that details the  IP of every commenter which can then be used to track down the internet connection that they were using a good example of it was given here in the NYtimes http://www.nytimes.com/2005/12/11/business/media/11web.html?_r=1

Why Molecular Mixology Is So Important In Cocktail Making

The question is not why molecular mixology is so important in cocktail making, but it should be what cocktail making would be without this wonderful procedure. It is the opposite of molecular gastronomy.

Voodoo Knife Block v Cream Chargers

So which would win in the battle of good against evil – the dark side against the light perhaps there will be no winner? It will be after Christmas before anyone gets to find out – if you think this is all rather cryptic then are probably right – but keep up and follow the story and who knows where it will take us… Read the full article »

Chargers Againts The World

I’m holding out that laziness is the thing that will bring about our downfall. That is to say it is not the things that we do that will destroy us but more likely the things that we don’t.

Whipped Cream With Everything

And from the tech to the kitchen – because I am the sum of my parts and they don’t always mesh as one might like. You could think of a physical analogy with the metaphorical slant! The proverbial custard pie in the face is in fact pure dairy without the need to any eggs. Hence not custard at all but relly just whipped cream!

The revolution stared when a friend of a friend charged in to dispense a whipped cream on a plate right into the face of Mr  Murdoch.   whipped cream

Sum of My Parts

I am more or less the sum of my parts! But who, what where am I?

Well that would be telling- but what do I do… that would be telling too!

This site is my empty and occasionally meaningless rambles as I fly around the world of the internet! I make a living online and generally rely upon the fact that I know a little bit more than other people, whilst never really knowing a lot about anything! I guess the simple fact is that all you need to know is a bit more than the people that consider you an expert.cream chargers

The biggest discovery that helped me in my new career path is the F1 key. In the literal sense then this is the button at the top of my keyboard that tells the computer that  I’m stuck and the it tries it’s best to help me out. The other F1s are google – ask it a question and it knows the answer – it isn’t only Jeeves that does this!

But surprisingly the ultimate F1 is in fact the telephone – I’ve realised that if there is a phone number provided for any business then use it.  Why submit a ticket and wait 48 hours for a conversation that has all of the merits a one handed clap! Instead get both hands clapping at the same time! Of course not everyone lets you do this – try and find a number to call Godaddy for help – yep, I told you so.

So back to my blog…  as I find it then I’ll publish it – for the simple reason that perhaps I’ll be somebody else’s F1 key. There might never be anyone that ever finds my information useful – but just in case – then I’ve placed my guides here for them. And as long as I can pay the hosting then they will remain  it might be quite a long time before the whole world ends and up until that point then the sum of my parts might well be a bastion of worldly knowledge!

laughing now

figured it out!

So who is laughing now?
ok, so i did not sleep last night because i was hot on the trail of my blogger who’s false identity will remain my secret. it was really quite fun to find her/him, and not hugely difficult. what i am *really* struggling with now, however, is how to write this part of the paper when it will be seen by other people. there are social consequences in the blogosphere to unmasking a false identity and i am concerned for him/her.
