Stupid moving box on left

Hello Eric Peters…

First visit to your site: came from Lew Rockwell.com.
Can’t help but notice, and be annoyed, by that real stupid auto-scrolling frame/box on the right side of page. Get rid of that pronto. Must be some pencil neck that put it on there…

  1. I’ve been called lots of things, but never a pencil neck! Ha

    Never really thought of myself as the pencil neck type. I’m 6’3″ and weigh around 260lbs, workout daily (twice on Tues & Thurs), have two black belts, am a volunteer after school activities instructor in martial arts at a middle school, and can fix/build just about anything.

    Anyhow, I think the scrolling block on the side is pretty cool!

    About the comments block:

    Sometimes I enable a lot sometimes I throttle it down. The way the script for the comments works really taxes the database. Right at around 100 people on the site at the same time it starts to act up if I have more than six comments displayed. I did just upgrade the RAM on the server, so maybe I’ll turn it up and we’ll see how it does.

    Mithrandir, thanks for bringing it up!

  2. Hey Eric? I like the box. I also like this site a whole lot (don’t have kittens yet Dom). Now, if you could just do something practical with it? Like maybe offering shaving tips along the lines of Gary North? Or maybe some good ideas on what sort of cars to buy? You know, real down to earth stuff.

    Just sayin’ 🙂

      • Mike, I have an unknown number of Rottweiler pups due to make an appearance on our about My 3rd. Want to do a photo competition? My pups against your kittens? If you win, I give you a pup, if you win, you give me a kitten.

        I very desperately need a Maine Coon Kitten. My cat was unfortunately eaten by a coyote last summer and I’m being overrun by rodents. I miss him, my wife misses him and we’re about to have puppies (which I *really* want to raise with a kitten).

        Anyone out there with a Maine Coon? Anybody? Seriously. I *need* help.

      • I serial crushed my first kitten on accident. Then my second one went out one night and never came home. He was only nine months old. Eric game him to me! I think an owl got him. That evening I had a nightmare about an owl attacking something. It was weird!

  3. I think the scroll is fine, although I think it would be better if it had more comments.

    People say, “these geeks come a dime a dozen.”
    I’m lookin’ for the guy who’s supplin’ the dimes. 😉
