    This may seem a bit wierd, but as I was sitting around last night contemplating the meanings of the universe, I stumbled on the following thought...

    The Internet shake-up and recent changes very much reminds me of the first Star Wars Trilogy...

    Star Wars = The Dot-Com Wars
    The Empire Strikes Back = The Bricks Strike Back
    The Return of the Jedi = currently unknown...

    In a galaxy far, far away... First there were the Dot-Com wars. Many Merchants invaded the Internet in an attempt to gain control of the galaxy, but many failed, and few survived.

    In the past several months, the Bricks have re-entered the Internet space and are striking back. It's very obvious when you begin looking on shopping portals and see the large presence that Brick Retailers now have online.

    The Return of the Jedi... I think we're currently in "The Bricks Strike Back" and I can't tell who the Jedi is just yet... only time will tell.

    Obviously, I've been working too much and the lack of sleep is beginning to affect me, but I thought I'd share...

    Thanks,

    Oh and there is NO WAY in the world your going to sleep in IBIZA :cool: (pronounced Ibeetha [gotta love the spanards lisp]). Ibiza is the singles capital of the the world.

    Have fun,

    Haiko

    Haiko,

    I think I'm an extremist in life...
    Work REALLY, REALLY, REALLY hard...
    Play REALLY, REALLY, REALLY hard...

    That and single life in Salt Lake City is REALLY, REALLY, REALLY difficult unless you are Mormon, which I am not... So, in order to get a date, one could argue that I not only have to leave the State, but the country... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Shawn,

    You think the singles life is bad down there, try Sandpoint Idaho, population... argh, too little to count...

    You get the mix of mountain women and, ok thats all we have up here 50 miles south of Canada.

    I was in Spain in '99. They really know how to have a good time over there!

    It's obvious

    Affiliate Managers are the Jedi.... because there's some like those of us active here who are using the Force for good and others who have obviously slipped over to the darkside.

    Nb Shawn I noticed your stock of Lightsabres was finished? Any more coming in?

    Cheers

    Jedi Chris

    Seems like our best AM's except Andy ( He lives in Miami within Binocular distance of a nude beach) need to look for Russian e-Mail Order brides. Jamie has to dress up in his Canadian Mounted Police outfit and trek 50 miles into Canada to get a date. He should consider a home delivery service for Coldwater Creek. Sean has obviously studied Playboy's best chance to get laid ..vacation hottie spots.

    "Somehow I knew that mountie outfit would come in handy" That and a good Huskie to sniff them out from under the winter snowfall. Don't go for the Asian gals since they can't stand the cold and love sandals rather than Mucklacs and snowshoes.
