Your Country Needs YouWritten by malcolm james pugh

Carried on trains still double parked, Policed by mere paper statistics, And all piled up high in dark, Running on rails that might crack, Or on roads that can often crumble, Here comes mass voting truck, Yes, I can just hear its rumble, But drivers now in A and E, And thence to wards and bugs, And no one is sitting in cab, And no one can hear its chugs, Like a nation that could do anything, But now quietly quivers in a corner, Which could once move mountains, But now just needs a mourner, Who still has a good sound engine, But poor bosses and engineers, Where once there was pure power, There now exists just abject fear, Fear of wrongly spoken word, In case it should offend or annoy, Fear of paying vast compensation To anyone you might employ, Fear of going out and doing something, In case it should sadly turn out poor, Just toe line and pass buck, Whenever not absolutely sure, Its time we really educated properly, And reinstalled Victorian drive, When anything was possible, And great ideas and thoughts were alive, Promoted by those right at top, Not stifled from within by stealth, Give us back our will to win, Give us back this countys wealth, Not fantasy figures drawn, Nor illusion we are all fine, Just riches that, we matter, And that this land is yours and mine, That what we say makes a difference, And what we do really gives us a role, Like it was just yesterday, Before officialdom took control, Before long we will only know, What they would have us hear, And hope will lie down to die, To be replaced by repressive fear, So before we are disenfranchised, And legislation chains our hands, Before a suffocating grey blanket, Is rolled out over our land, Pause to think independently, And see exactly what is really there, And truly hear all mounting lies, And choose freedom over Blair.
Voting has been visited by people
from systems programmer to wierd and part way back. Strange website of Teddy Bears, all with attitude.
Why use XHTML?Written by Gary R. Hess
Continued from page 1
XML has been gaining ground ever since start of RSS and will only grow as weeks and months go on. When Firefox announced support of live bookmarks in 1.0 frenzy just began.
Since beginning of 2004, Yahoo, MSN and many other news organizations have came out with RSS support. Plus, with rise of blogs XHTML and XML have come to forefront of today's technology.
With Internet Explorer getting heat from Firefox with Opera (who also has RSS support) holding onto a small percentage, they are looking at possibly using RSS support to help hold down Mozillians.
So in retrospect, XHTML shows professionalism and is future of World Wide Web. So why not stay ahead of game and switch over now It is worth your time, believe me.
