After some very minor celebrity on the former corners of the Internet, the TURDS!! file is updated with a transcription of a letter from the “Pinkerton’s National Detective Agency”. They were hired to, it seems, find out who wrote it. Details below, but scanning and posting came from this officiel blog. By the Way: if you care to scan those other “terrific examples” of these kinds of things, I would appreciate it.
Visiting by accident, the human recommendations blog of the Marion (Indiana) Publique Library, I noticed something actually unique: A total lack of datestamps.
I cannot find anything on the index page or the individual posts to show when they were written or publisht. The URIs are … found it!!
If you clique on the individual images of books, then it says when they were “published”, which means uploaded to the server.
Sadly, the blog hasn’t been updated in almost 2 years. Their idea of not making it easy to see the date makes it hard for an immediate visitor to know if it is all out of date, hence less immediately rejection-worthy. As far as I know this is unique to them.
You know who you are. Somewhere on the slightly less popular now site Tumboleer, you got a flood of people clicking a link on your site, so now people are reading a transcription of the 1890’s handbill about the “Ass-Hole of America”! Good work?
According to WikipediA, this immage was gotten up and spread about by some Indiana University students many many years Ago (1890). For the better education of the students of to-day, it is transcribed below.
The [index] is for glyphs like ☞ that were set upside down by the compositors. Unicode doesn’t have those. Yet.
