So I awoke from my late afternoon nap, put my contacts in and headed over to my computer. I felt really hot from my nap so I went to open my balcony door a bit to let some nice fresh air in.
About 5 minutes later, while checking e-mails and whatnot, he came.
He is him. The Whistley Man.
The Whistley Man usually comes out only early in the morning or late at night. And he’s not alone. Oh no. He brings along his little white dog, and takes it out to go for a little walk and to go to the bathroom. The Whistley Man is a rather large man and uses arm crutches to help him walk, and he walks very slow. While he walks, he whistles. He whistles loud. Very loud.
I most often am aware of The Whistley Man when he wakes me up early in the morning from this insanely loud whistling, or else later at night when I’m on the computer doing work. The fact that he walks around (so spookily, I may add) in the parking lot, which has the apartments on one side, and a large forest on the other, only magnifys the volume.
I’ve run into him, down there, in the parking lot, a few times. He could be considered a type of Parking Lot Troll, as he won’t let you pass without greeting you with a bit of friendly conversation. He’s a nice enough man, but he’s spooky. And whistley.
Anyhow, I decided to grab my camera and shoot a tiny little clip of him, to show anyone who may be interested.
Update: I’ve since removed this video from my server, sorry!
In other news, MMAForums’s skin is just about done. Terrorist #1 put the skin up today, finally, but it’s not gone ‘public’ yet; only admins can see it. Also, tomorrow he needs to put the last finishing touches on it, integrating it a bit more, and adding forum status icons, etc. New skin should be live late tomorrow.
I also sold all of my domains. I sold them to a guy, all of them for 50% off my asking price, for $340. From all the little $10-$20 domains I bought here and there over the past 3 months or so, I bought around 40, for around $500, and sold them for around $1500. While it’s easy money, it isn’t good money, so I won’t be doing that anymore. I did it before just for some easy no-brain extra income to put into projects, and while it did do that, it wasn’t worth my time to make that amount of money.
However, this is just for cheap domains. Even though I consider myself to have a very high level of expectation for domains in terms of quality, I will only purchase domains now that are in the upper echelon; so around $50 and up in purchase price. So really, I’ll be buying very few domains in the future, with the intention of reselling.
American Labourer #1 has been plugging along for Replayer.org and I send him another grand to keep on going.
Project AA is also making good progress.
Still haven’t decided what to do with PublisherForums.com
