Gabriel writes, "Three cheers for the webmaster! I think we're damned close to having everything working like slippery eels again! I'll wash my socks in the morning..."

"Just another buzz in a busy subfrazzled afternoon...and then there was another strong wind roaring in from behind her big yellow crooked lily teeth."

"Win something? I'm still trying to lose these Geneva-sanctioned lycanthropic teeth steering a mouthful of yellow sheep to the back of the bus. I just think it's amazing that some folks in these terse parts still run their experimental mouths tart free. But thanks for your excellent utility. However, I think it would benefit many users if you offered a choice from several different ASS Top 1000 button designs using a variety of colors. As a page designer and webmaster for several clients I can admit that I am hesitant to recommend the placement of the current button due on some of my pages due to aesthetic concerns."

"Hi Anni, trust all is going well with your career in "show business". And your bookselling? Have you made a solid contact here in the States? Just passing by, and thought I'd wave to you from the technicolor dashboards of Kierkegaard Boulevard..."

Surveying books have formulas to determine the area of any irregularly shaped object. It uses the coordinates of each of the vertices of the surface to determine the area. All it would require would be for the object to be placed on a grid, the operator would record the coordinates of each of the vertices. The data can be saved to a text file and imported into a database or spreadsheet for the remaining calculations. If the piece is symmetrical or nearly so, the problem then reduces to calculating the surface of revolution by segmenting the cross-section and summing (integrating) the contributions of each segment to the surface. If the piece is irregular, approximations for each type of item could probably be developed. The idea would be to use calculus to compute the surface of a particular type of piece from various measurements and then use that calculation with some scaling factor that would be applied to a similar piece the next time an estimate is needed. Gwenyth knew these details like the top of her booming bra-clutched white breasts, her cleavage from on high, so to speak, but her cultural brokenness would scatter like cats whenever she smiled at a fence, who was almost always a man. Her skin was USDA shark, the underbelly of a Great White. Similar intelligence. Barely five foot tall, her femininity was all muscle, striking, mannish seething within a functional ugly blubber. Gwen knew how to embalm any potential fence. She swam in deep waters of a secret mathematics, peculiar to her specific trade, her core mission. Gullible fence after gullible fence acutely drawn into her sway by the length and volume of that cleavage was blinded, then bled drop by drop, deal after deal until each collaborator at the hidden variable point of intersection, with or without spatial allowance, collapsed.

I have read a couple of Kosko books in the past, found him interesting and accessible, so I peddle his books as an Associate of Amazon.COM, but I am hardly qualified to, uh, what was it you had in mind, exchange groundbreaking ideas on fuzzy systems or neural nets...
"I live and work in Tucson, AZ. Found your site looking for info about neural nets, Bart Kosko and Fuzzy systems. I'm looking for like minded visitors...to learn and exchange ideas. Also, we have own several sites some recieve more than 50,000 uniques per day. How can we be effective for each other? Are you in need of more visibility for your site?"

Thanks for visiting one of my sites, John. However, I must admit that I'm at a loss as to know how I can be of service to you. The sad truth is I am merely an entry-level graphics & web designer for small businesses and operate the Bookskellar bookstore from my iMotedotcom site. While harboring tragically grandiose "writerly" ambitions, I rarely admit to them in public any more, although my "artistic" site (Scenewash Project 2000), still barely past the infrastructure stage, is my latest attempt to seek that unified field theory I've always rationed in terms of social and literary humanistic notions rather than in terms of high science of which I am woefully inept. I have read a couple of Kosko books in the past, found him interesting and accessible, so I peddle his books as an Associate of Amazon.COM, but I am hardly qualified to, uh, what was it you had in mind, exchange groundbreaking ideas on fuzzy systems or neural nets...

So I must defer to you to explain more fully what you had in mind.
