    Ok so I have been sitting on my duff. Assface took the wind out of my sales. So of you may ask what I have been doing? Not much would be the answer. I have been playing Space Empires IV and Generations more than humanly possible. Anyhoo.

    Iggy stopped by again, this time commenting on the Assface situation. It should be said that I’m not certain I even know Assface. So Iggy’s comments are based on an assumption of mine that this Assface is Sergei. And that is a long story. Whew!

    Just dropped in to say HI! Where is the Dear Iggy Column? LOL hehe HEY Concerning ASSFACE.. I want to personally thank him for the beautiful poinsettia that I got from PAPA JOHNS for being one of their top 200 customers! Woo Hoo! NOW Assface, I have to tell ya, you have definitely made the move buddy to Bigger and Better things.. Poinsettia.. wow…Pizza delivery. wow.. So if you are still working there (I bet not, only BORING people know how to keep jobs) and the next time you come to my house, I will make sure to give you that extra .25 for a job well done in my sincerest appreciation for the Poinsettia! Psst.. hey I hear that Pizza Hut is moving up in the world. You ought to give them a try.. I wonder if they will send you to my house with a poinsettia too? hahahahaha

    Ok So here’s the official announcement. Iggy is going to do an advice column. So if anyone feels like asking Iggy for advice send you questions or comments to iggy@hotelblues.com. It’s all up to you now Iggy.

    I have threatened a new look for a while now. And well here we go! I have been working on this for a few days now. Other than that I haven’t really done dick with the website. The last time I wrote was on the 11th. You may or may not notice the change. I have used some graphics. Nothing to fancy. Don’t want to make load time any worse. I’m also not really keen on the use of graphics. I will be tweaking them for a while to come. I’m never happy with the artistic side of things.

    Why change one might ask? Well I am one who hates change. I’m always slow to adapt to the change. But sometimes your hands are forced. My host recently upgraded their servers. Cool for me. I can use the FrontPage Extensions to do some things that make me look like I know what I’m doing. But with any change there are some bad to go along with the good. That goddamned pop up. If I keep my frames we are stuck with it. And I hate them pop ups when I go to a site, its just so annoying. So the frames are gone. The change over may take a while. So give me time.

    It also should be noted that a lot of the inspiration for the change came from the the lovely gent who runs Blue’s News. Who is aptly named Blue. Blue recently did a revamp and he ditched the frames also. It’s a great site which covers mostly FPS. But you can get a lot from the place.

    Well the make over is coming along at a snails pace. I have so much to convert, I almost get sick thinking about it. With me being the lone gunman of the site it will be a slow process of redoing each and every page. A portion of the old layout is lost in limbo waiting for me to turn it into an archive page. If you have to see it try here. It’s the page with me and my friends little girl. If your looking for the Cute pictures.

    No one has wrote in to Iggy yet. Maybe I’ll get Iggy to explain to everyone what kind of advice she can give.

    I heard from one of my co-workers who is a manager that checked the site last night. This is what she said:

    TURK, JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW I LIKE THE NEW LOOK. I REALLY LIKE THE BLACK BACK GROUND WITH WHITE.

    So thanks for stopping. I’m glad you like the look.

    A few people have been expecting me to mention something from a couple of Thursdays ago. Now I have been not mentioning this subject on purpose. But, by popular demand here I go. On early Friday morning the 15th of this month I was robbed. Two guys came in to the hotel and held me up at gun point. It was an interesting experience. I never expected this kind of thing to happen at the hotel. I worked for over a year at an convenience store and always expected this kind of thing to happen there. But it never did. This is what the local newspaper had to say about it:

    South Beloit hotel robbed early today

    A South Beloit hotel was robbed by two armed individuals early this morning.
    Two men, one armed with a gun, walked into the Holiday Inn of Greater Beloit, 200 Dearborn Ave., in South Beloit, at 12:53 a.m. today and demanded money from the front desk attendant.
    The men fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.
    South Beloit Police Department Acting Chief Richard King said the investigation of the robbery will be turned over to the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department for further investigation.
    King also said a witness was able to provide physical descriptions of the two suspects.
    No one was harmed in the incident.
    The sheriff’s department was called to the scene last night to help with the crime scene investigation.

    So I came to adopt a way of thinking about a event like this. I always said if something happened I would not think about it. My reasoning was that if you spent time worrying about something like that, when it happened you would either panic or do something heroic. And hey I’m no hero. The hotel doesn’t pay me enough to be a hero.

    So back to my banditos. These two goons walk into the hotel. One white, one black. The white guy had the gun. It was a nice shiny pistol. Long barrel, yet kind of tiny. This guy asked for the money in a tone of voice of someone who might be a little afraid of what he was doing. The black guy was definitely nervous. Me, I was more nervous myself than scared. What can you do in a situation like this? You just do what the asshole wants. So I gave the scumbag the money. I even asked if he wanted the checks and coins. The only ting I didn’t do for the guy was give him a bag that he asked for. I didn’t have one. Then the crooks left wishing me a merry Christmas. On foot. The local police didn’t get them. Crooks on foot, cops in police cars, go figure?

    A bartender from the hotel had the privilege to be with me for this little episode. The local cops had me and the bartender fill out statements. Nothing professional or anything it was just us writing down what happened on the hotels legal pads. In my statement I refer to the crooks as banditos and say that they were nice enough for not stealing my personal money. The county cops are handling the investigation, and they felt my statement was a little odd. They still have yet to contact me. They called the hotel and talked to the general Manager. He tried to explain to the cops that just was the way I am. I figured they would make me a suspect. Just because I have a smart ass attitude. Oh well. Live and learn.

    So the lesson we should all learn from this is that when you fill out a police statement don’t be a smartass.

    A few things. First, December 6th was Mark J’s birthday. Last year we went to one those establishments that features scantily clad females. This year I missed the celebration. I also have to say hello to Laura Who would kick my ass if I didn’t.

    I’m also trying to make sure the site is viewable for resolutions of 800×600. The ideal resolution is still 1024×768. But I’m making progress. I still say that there is no good reason someone shouldn’t have at least resolutions of 1024×768. But that is of course my opinion.
