I dearly love the 'cat and my relationship with this place is paradoxical. I have to limit my time perusing the threads because invariably I lose myself for extended periods of time because the community is so awesome and the majority of the postings (music and otherwise) are full of thoughtful, life-affirming input. I think I started hanging out here in 1999 and I consider it an electronic 'home'.
So enough about that except to say that I keep running across this 'note to self' from about 2006 that says I've really got to update my personal info and photo in the member photos and info section...
So here's an idea: an option on the blickifier to create a blicky that opens the link in a new page. I know how to right-click on a link in foxfire and have it 'open in a new tab' but not everyone does and not everyone remembers and not everyone knows how to get back to the previous page...and maybe you've already made it a default that links open in a new page and I didn't realize it because I haven't tried clicking on a link in a long time because I hate having to use the back button to get back to the 'cat...and it sure is a good thing that nobody writes long, run-on rambling sentences and then fails to go back and edit them or anything like that...

Max, I don't have to tell you how many people are making small and not-so-small fortunes with their on-line endeavors. You should certainly be one of them. I've been a student of Internet marketing for a couple of years (and still only making spotty revenue) but the possibilities are endless. My favorite mentor on the topic is a guy named Ed Dale and there is a wealth of totally free info to be had for learning about making money on line through the Thirty Day Challenge. "Social networking" has finally come into its own and I absolutely want to see the Mudcat taking full advantage of the tools available out there.
Mudcat.org has long been my personal ideal for the absolute best the Internet has to offer. It's an electronic means for live humans to interact and enrich one another's lives -- not a substitute for dealing with humans but a way to genuinely CONNECT. I have forged at least one significant friendship born entirely out of interactions on the 'cat and enriched many, many more as a direct result of my participation in this forum. Max, you are an astonishing force for good in this world that so needs visionary input such as yours. YOU ROCK, DUDE!!!!!!!!!
