Jan.28.2013 Site Update
Latest News - this news item posted on Jan.28.2013 08:59 pm by AMPro

So this is the first time I've ever been able to make a site update post without having to go into the archives and log into the old forum and make the update as a post. It's very nice to have one uniform way of adding content now.

Earlier today I tracked down and fixed several bugs in the content viewer. I also crafted some missing code so now individual site updates from the past can be viewed.

I've also begun a redesign of the home page and did some behind the scenes work on AMProLand. Might have something to show soon with both of those projects.

That's it for now.

DeviantArt Diversion
Latest Journal Entry - posted on March.07.2013
During the month of February I took another unexpected turn. Deviant Art was one of the first websites I listed on WheretoGoOnline.com and in January I created a deviant art page


And in February I started using it. And then I got sucked in. Deviant Art has the unfair advantage of being a place where I can look at absolutely gorgeous images all day and study a new (new to me) Social Network at the same time.

I produced a lot of art that I'm very happy with. I learned A TON about creating digital art and creating it faster. A lot of the art I created contains copyrighted...

Sharon Shafer [01]

Relations: McEmpire (online version)

Sharon Shafer [01]

    Sharon Shafer held a mirror in her left hand and a printed report in her right hand. She was a very busy woman and she rarely took time to indulge in self-pity, but this morning she had locked herself in her office, high atop a DarqueOps administration building, to do precisely that.

    She stared at the numbers on the report but they remained unchanged. Tomorrow's report would change a bit but in the wrong direction. The report was an official life expectancy report. It was telling her that she was old. She consulted the mirror. It was telling her the same thing. She still felt healthy and vital and strong; all of the surgeries she'd had made her look younger; but her age was still what it was.

    The life expectancy for an American woman had reached 85 back when she had been the 1st lady. But it had fallen precipitously in the decades since then. Some of it was her own doing since she was in the business of reengineering society by purging the excess population. But even excluding all of the accelerations, executions and genocides there was a worrying downward trend on life expectancy.

    The life expectancy for unemployeds was now 36.717 years. That number was inconsequential since there was a plan in the works to exterminate most of unemployeds soon anyway. The life expectancy for the laboring class was at 38.008 years. The life expectancy for the Relations class was 52.375 years.

    Some people in the Establishment viewed it as a separate class, some just viewed it as the upper end of the Relations class, and others didn't much care. But since the Establishment class didn't exist in any official capacity, and since there was no precise means of determining who was in it and who wasn't, there were no statistics compiled for it. She could give the order and have the statistics compiled if she wished to do so but she felt like she had a good enough idea without tempting fate by compiling a report which ought never be compiled.

    She decided that the Establishment lived a good five years longer than Relations and that gave them 57 years. And that was her age. From now on she was living on borrowed time. She did not want to die. Ever. She found the idea that some part of her body would simply fail to work properly absolutely intolerable. She should be able to buy a new body. She was Sharon Shafer after all. She fancied herself the most powerful woman on the planet. For all the good it did her. She could not even guarantee that she would live to be as old as her husband --or even outlive him at all for that matter. The sudden realization that she could die and he would live out the rest of his days enjoying the ExxoMo empire she had built was almost too much to take.

    Sharon flung the mirror across her expansive office and heard it shatter on the floor. She was not in the mood to do any DarqueOps work. She canceled everything on her schedule for the day, switched on the giant screens on the wall and set them all to monitor ExxoMo so that she could watch the bidding for BMI, and then buzzed her receptionist and ordered her to come into the office.

    During their eight year stint in the White House Sharon had built DarqueOps from its infancy. It was the next logical evolutionary step that Corporations should have their own autonomous intelligence agency. She had a knack for the work and had risen through the ranks so quickly that by the time she was done serving as first lady it was a simple matter to have her husband installed as the CEO of Exxon/Mobil. And in no time at all they had built ExxoMo into the most powerful corporation in the world. Now Robert J. Minton's Infocation corp had overtaken them in every way. She hated the man with a burning passion. If her husband could manage to acquire BMI Relations without screwing it up the day might still turn out to be a good day. But for now she was consumed with a general hatred for everything around her.

    Ms. Li, her receptionist, came into the office with a grave look on her face. She walked slowly across the hardwood floors to Mrs. Shafer's desk. Sharon Shafer gave her a silent look that confirmed her worst fears. Ms. Li was a very devout Catholic girl from Indonesia. What Mrs. Shafer wanted her to do was a grave sin. But she had no choice in the matter. She choked back silent tears and tried to fake a smile as she began to disrobe and reveal her tiny, timid body to the warm, sterile air of the opulent office.
