The status message page has become pretty popular. I figured since Facebook has eliminated the condition that status messages start with "X is" a long time ago (Myspace never had this provision) I would finally eliminate the restriction from my site. So you can now add your favorite status messages that start with additional prefixes like "x was","x has","x was", or the favorite "x ".

I had originally held up on making this change because I felt removing the "x is" start would lead to more erroneous submissions that do not fit the definition of a status message (the status message should give you some idea of what the author is doing) I currently remove about 90% of submissions because they are either unoriginal, not a "status" message or contain vulgarities. But hopefully by adding more prefixes it will lead to more of the original and funny status message submissions that makes Tjshome the best source of status messages on the internet.

News Corp bought Myspace back in 2005 for $580 million dollars. It is estimated that myspace is worth over 15 billion now. That greater than a 100% return each year. Forgot stocks.. from now on I'm buying whole companies.

This comes as AOL agrees to buy other popular social networking site for $850 million. I never heard of this site till today but I'm thinking of trying to outbid AOL. Any one want to fund this?

I am not much of an myspace fanatic like a lot of people these days. However I do like hows it's a great way to get a glimpse inside people's minds. When I see a name in the news I often find myself going quickly to myspace and doing a search on the name to see if I can spot their profile before its put to private. I had success numerous times including this one just now.

Here's the link to the Spitzer call girl who got the governer of NY, Elliot Spitzer in hot water and caused him to step down.

I normally wouldn't post a link for this as I think it's disrespectful for the person involved. However, she has had ample time to set her profile to private. Frankly I think she wants the attention as this may be the perfect opportunity to jump start her music career. Listen to her song its not bad.. if you're into the Britney spears type anyways.

I spend a lot of time on the coding of my website to make the design appear somewhat presentable. I find it very amusing that some sites that bring in millions of visitors each day do not put any effort into their appearance. With a little bit of designing I bet these site can increase their visitors by at least 10%. Here is a list of offending sites: Besides their very poor services they also have very poor design problems. You never know when you're logged on and page transition in the member's area is very slow. You think one of the most popular sites on the web can I spend a little money to make their site appear top notch. Have at least their main page appear presentable will lessing the nuisance of viewing those awful teeny boppers myspace profile pages.

Drudge Report is a popular U.S.-based news website run by Matt Drudge. The site consists primarily of links to stories from the US and international mainstream media. The site looks like it was designed in MS Word html editor. One think I hate worst when visiting a website is having to scroll. I like all the main content to be in one viewing area. I understand this can't only happen but this site makes you scroll left->right and up->down... doing this loses the readers attention. Viewing the website is worst then having to flip through pages of the NYTimes on a crowded subway. The viewing area spreads will easily extend over a virtual football field. This site is in dire need of a overhaul.

Craiglist is a centralized network of online urban communities, featuring free classified advertisements. This site has made the owner (I forget his first name) a millionaire. The site however is plain, in fact I do not think theirs an image hosted on the Craigslist servers. Their HTML links everywhere and often you find yourself getting lost because there's no defined menu. For a multi-million dollar financial institution this bank has a very fake looking design. I just can not trust the security on a site with poor design. a website dedicated to determining the truth about many urban legends, Internet rumors, email forwards, and other such stories of uncertain or questionable origin. Snopes design hasn't been updated even after they current receive millions of hits each day. How can Webmaster be so ignorant to the fact that a good design = more visitors? More visitors = more profit from ads.

IMDB The International Movie Database needs some organization work. It just a bunch of text spread throughout.
