NewsBlog 5000 has been online for a full week. And many important things have happened, NASA has traveled at Mach 10, the MPAA has started suing people for sharing movies on the internet, Iraqi insurgents were battled in Fallujah and Iran has made a deal with the EU to stop refining Uranium. We have run many stories, although, none on those important issues mentioned above.
we will bring you more articles of equal or lesser value
We did run other important stories: our President replaced by a mutant that craves human blood, fisting virgins, how to get stoned in Canada, Arafat’s chair, Rice’s boxing and Jerry Falwell’s mysterious prong fixation. We can proudly say that if you liked these articles, we will bring you more articles of equal or lesser value.
Technologically, the site is doing well. Our first plan involved building a multimillion dollar data center rather than hosting our site with Blogger, but as only 2 people have visited our site in the last week, it now seems like the right decision. Our story submission system seems to be working well, and articles are getting out in a timely manner. We hope to have to problems in our proofreading software take cur of tartly.
On a personal note, I would like to thank Alice Humbees and Adrian Chevelle where were unvaluable in their contributions. And I would like to assure them that someday we will have more visitors than we have staff. Oh, and in case you are wondering, we are still waiting on information on Eric Engberg.
