    Since “Yippie Aye oh Kiyay” was part of the “Quick Draw McGraw” cartoon theme song, how about these two spin-off phrases:

    I’ll do the thinin’ around here, muthafukah, and don’ you furgetit!

    This looks like a job for El Kabong, muthafukah!

    Although, my money is on “The cheese stands alone, motherfucker!” That made me laugh out loud!

    I saw Live Free or Die Hard in the theater… It was certainly not bad.

    I actually came over here because I just saw your name, at this page of the WordPress website. The five-year ‘Blogiversary’ for my main weblog just ended about 20 minutes ago… I have been using Blogger. I was considering, awhile back, to switch to Movable Type, or to TypePad, but could find no solid reason to do so. I am likely going to start a new blog however, and I have been wondering what blogging service to use. I remember when WordPress was started, and now, it seems that this is the one that people are using.

    It says at that WordPress page that their “Post Preview” feature was one reason why you chose it. But as far as I know, Blogger, Movable Type, and GreyMatter (is that one even still around?) all allow you to preview blog entries, before they are published, and I am assuming that TypePad does as well.

    Is the WordPress ‘Preview’ feature different? I see that that page notes that their ‘Preview’ feature shows how your entry will appear, “in your current theme.” Does that mean that when you click the “Preview” button, it shows that entry, as if it were published, along with all the other entries on your blog’s front page, as well as your blog’s template (in other words, does it show your blog’s actual home page, as if it would be, if you published that entry)??

    Also, I have been told that WordPress is “free” – and their website says the same. But do they provide you with web space (like at yourname.wordpress.com) for free, as well (like Blogger does, with yourname.blogspot.com)??

    I have web space available, through my university’s student web server, and I can purchase a domain name, which will re-direct there. But if WordPress offers free server space – like Blogger does, with “…blogspot.com” – then I would prefer to use that.

    I apologize for getting off topic, in this entry, but I know that your weblog deals a lot with web design and blogging – and I would like to get this underway, before long. Any assistance you can provide will be much appreciated. Thank you!
