Server issues

10.wox.org and all its peers have been down for several days now, meaning I've not gotten any mail . . .

The web server's still down . . . and now I get this error when trying to get mail:

SSL Negotiation Failed: Certificate Error: Cert Chain not trusted. Try adding this certificate to your certificate database for SSL to succeed. Certificate bad: Destination Host name does not match host name in certificate Cause: (-6995)

You can send mail to ten10@ifucksuffedanimals.com in the mean time, or something . . .

Entertainment

Does it surprise anyone that the root of the word entertain means to hold someone as they are?



Often, I have thought of forms of entertainment as exposing people to diverse experiences in a safe manner . . . yet, this term evolved into greater and greater usage even as human beings gained greater and greater power- perhaps not compared to world &c as a whole, yet certainly in the absolute sense. Thus, such safety may involve less importance, and one might much greater value in actual action . . .

The questions I ask now . . . What opportunities did the world accord me before? While entertainment held me, what opportunities disappeared, or appeared? What opportunities remain?

Aesthetics - > visual correlations with success

Such correlations vary from culture to culture, person to person, between different points in time for those groups &c

What means success and what measures success seem to enjoy much commonality between groups for some facets of experience like survival, sex, progeny raising &c, while enjoying great diversity between other facets of experience, such as the predicted enjoyment of a kiss, or efficiency at many a particular, abstract task such as skill with computers.
