dot-biz in England

Yes!! The web developers I shared my goals with in England have at least done something that makes me happy to see. They are no longer using think-local.biz, and are now re-directing that URL to a new one.

Some Tenderloin streets updated

I have updated the business listings on the following Tenderloin streets:
Fell
Golden Gate
Grove
Hayes

I also fixed my scripts so businesses that don't exist any more won't leave blank spaces on the list. If you go to this page, and select one of the streets listed above, you'll see a complete listing of businesses in the Tenderloin neighborhood for those streets.

Note: this script doesn't seem to work on iPads and many smart phones. I have made another script that does, but haven't connected it to the updated database yet.

Australian interlopers

Crap. I discover that the government of Queensland has registered think-local.com.au to use for posting jobs in Queensland. When you think of think-local.com.au do you think of Queensland? I don't. I think of the entire nation.

Back in the Tenderloin

Fay and I walked the streets of the Tenderloin to verify which businesses still existed. We only covered a few streets, in the worst parts of the Tenderloin. I had the silly notion she might come back and do some of the less urine-soaked, crack-infested streets on her own.

Ha. She has no interest in walking around the Tenderloin with a clipboard.
