Amazon Oddity

You Know You Want The Scar

Amazon has started to use a new ploy, putting up little “You Know You Want It” ads like the one shown here. Which is fine with me – except that I removed that book from my wishlist days ago. And a couple of others you said you knew I wanted. Guess what – you were right. But I’ve already got them now. So tell me something I don’t know.

On an unrelated note – I’m having a heck of a time getting this note posted through my new fangled WYSIWYG text editor, htmlArea. One of the major downsides of it is that because it uses the MSHTML control some of the “help” it gives you is what Microsoft thinks you should be doing, and frankly some of it is messed up. I love being able to see inline previews, and I still have to do some playing with stylesheets and possibly mucking around with some of the post-save MT code, but my infatuation may be short-lived!
