a frustrating evening I had yesterday. I know that I made an announcement
about a "Live Web Cam Chat with Bob tonight!" and I never showed
I just bought myself
an iBot Web Cam and was all anxious to get it on-line. I did a lot
of surfing on the Internet looking for a place to hook up the thing.
With some help from a friend I found WebCamNow.com and figured I
could just send people there while I chat in my Yahoo
Everything went kaput.
It all started when I couldn't upload files to my web host announcing
where to go. I tried and tried but my host was refusing more files
(it's a bug in the system that shows it's ugly head every few months).
I figured that I could just post it on The
Normal Bob Smith Group message board and that'd at least
get some people there.
Then I couldn't even
get the camera to work with the site. What an ordeal! Why was it
so difficult to get a live cam up and running on the net? I started
to freak out, then my friend told me to just quit and we should
go get a cup of coffee. I was in denial for a bit but realized that
she was absolutely right. Nothing was working and it wasn't going
to tonight. So we split.
We took the subway to
Brooklyn and relaxed a bit in the Verb Cafe. I am so happy that
she got me to walk away from it all. I'm the type of person who'll
sit there and stress out even though it clearly isn't going to work
We had fun! We got to
watch a bull dog and a German Shepherd puppy wrestle.

even got to see Dan from the Real World hangin' out like he
was just a regular person!

I didn't arrive home
until after midnight, and wouldn't you know it, I get on-line and
the camera starts working at WebCamNow.com no prob.
I was able to find one
Super Chic (Amy)
to come view me there but that place was filled with perverted 50
year old men shoving hard-ons into their live cams. What a nightmare!

Thus I didn't hang out for long to "chat".
But never fear! Soon
I'll have a live cam (along with a chat room) up and running on
my site, and you'll all be invited.
By the way, the news
on the Jesus
Dress Up refrigerator magnets is
they'll probably be available late January 2003. As soon as I get
a few more things worked out I'll be offering a "buy in advance
discount" for anyone who wants to guarantee themselves a copy. I've
been so pleased with how many of you are excited about their arrival!
Hopefully I'll have enough.
And now it's snowing.
I'm so happy I got out last night.
