This has to be the 'photo of the Year'



























AND ONE MORE……………………….The next picture will warm your heart

The Doberman is pregnant. The fireman had just saved her from a fire in her house,


rescuing her by carrying her out of the house into her front yard, then he continued to fight the fire.

When he finally got done putting the fire out,  he sat down to catch his breath and rest.

A photographer from the  Charlotte  ,  North Carolina  News- paper, noticed the dog in the distance looking at the fireman.

He saw the Doberman walking straight toward the fire fighter and wondered what she was going to do.

As he raised his camera, she came up to the tired man who had just saved her life and the lives of her unborn babies and kissed him just as the photographer snapped this photograph.

.telegraph

Welcome to .telegraph, the monthly .tel community newsletter covering the latest news on .tel features, software and services, as well as useful tips and advice from .tel owners. Why not share this with someone you think may also be interested? More resources are at http://telnic.org/community-landing.html.

.tel

In this issue:

Hot News: control panel update out

  • Fully multi-lingual .tel – Any item on your .tel page can now hold non-English characters, including notes for contact information, such as phone numbers and email addresses.
    Based on customer requests, you can now add up to 255 characters of text in the Description field that shows above the phone number or address on your .tel page.
    “Go to” links to sub-folders and other .tel pages can now have descriptions too, which greatly helps directories and other structured resources around the world.
  • Backup and restore your .tel – With the latest update to the control panel, you can create an offline copy of your .tel data and upload it back later, for example, during transfer.
    Open the Settings link at the top right of your control panel, and go to the Backup/Restore tab. You can create a backup copy of one domain and all your data, friends and settings, or all domains in your account.
    The data is saved as an XML file on your computer. At any time, you can upload the backup copy into the control panel to overwrite any other data in the selected domain.

” No matter where you keep your contacts (I use Outlook and Blackberry), .tel will keep your record of me current.”

A Model of Excellence? Yes!

Not everyone may know that it took eight years of negotiation, development effort and global outreach for Telnic to bring .tel to market. Since General Availability, it has been an important and busy year for us, and we’ve continued to develop the service we provide to our community thanks to you.

It gives us great pleasure to announce that the hard work is starting to become recognized in the industries that we touch, as we’ve just been awarded one of three Models of Excellence 2009 Awards handed out each year by data industry analysts InfoCommerce Group. The awards were announced at the Data Content ’09 conference in Philadelphia.

“The concept behind the .tel domain is both audacious and sublime,” said Russell Perkins, Founder of InfoCommerce Group, “.tel has the potential to revolutionize online contact directories by providing simple, fast, streamlined contact information for everyone. Because of its fast response time, .tel is particularly important in the context of mobile devices. Dynamic information on a .tel page is compact, uncluttered, and enables easy one‐click emails and phone calls even with limited screen real estate. This is an incredibly innovative and powerful idea with huge potential.”

Henri Asseily, CTO and Chief Strategist who attended and spoke at the conference, added: “As people begin to realize that the similarities with all other domain names begin and end with the dot in .tel, they are opening their minds to the possibility of securely sharing all kinds of data over the internet in a standardized, efficient and actionable way.”

.tel in Czech

This month a new country was introduced to the world of .tel technology.
On October 15th, TelCamp Prague was held to introduce .tel to the Prague business community and the wider Czech Republic, and to help local businesses understand and evaluate .tel domains. Attendees ranged from novices to experienced .tel users, with back-grounds ranging from IP Law through to HR and office management positions. Attendees also came from business-to-business directory Kompass, Seznam.cz, the Czech Republic search engine of choice, as well as the Czech Yellow Pages, and several marketing, telecommunication and infrastructure companies.
At the event, Telnic’s Communications Director Justin Hayward announced that .tel domains can now be viewed in Czech, and a week later, the .tel control panel added support for Czech as well.
The event kicked off with an overview of the vision and current usage of .tel around the world, showing various countries usage and advertising and marketing with .tel.

Prague

Keynote speakers included:

  • Micha Benoliel from Digitrad with OrganIP and communications integration possibilities of .tel
  • Peter Hunt and his vision for Republic Cities, focusing around hotspots for new lightweight city-based contact directories
  • Steve Cranston, founder of R3 Tel, showing significant results that he has achieved using .tel domains in searches within the Czech Republic, in Bing, Google and Seznam.cz.

R3Tel has launched as a reseller in Prague but specializes in contact directory solutions and search engine optimization. The results of this SEO had been reproduced and hung around the newly refurbished pent-house of Liliova 8, a fantastic setting in beautiful old town Prague. The evening ended with a trip to LS Members’ Club where .tel related conversation continued well into the night!

OneVancouver: one .tel city

Vancouver is a large coastal city in the Canadian province of British Columbia, and a pio-neering city in the world of .tel. Its local registrar, Webnames.ca, launched the initiative One Vancouver to strengthen local business connections.
The initiative aims to attract a growing number of partners and projects from business, tourism, government and education. Projects include selling .tel names in retail stores with a telephone or a cup of coffee!

As RonMunson wrote on the community forum, “In the Vancouver area .tel has been popping up all over the place. Here is an example VancouverRenovations.tel which I saw on the side of van. I’ll guarantee you there will be a ton of other examples in the next few months since it is the cheapest way a company can get an online profile up fast.”

Maelle

People

Thanks to her sponsor Webnames.ca, Maelle Ricker, Vancouver native and a top snowboardcross racer for the 2010 Olympics has her .tel name.
MaelleRicker.tel has links to her bio, sponsors, main website, video and press coverage, and contact information for her agent. Her location also shows Maelle is now training in the Alps, and will update as she travels in preparation for the Olympic championship in her home city. As the games get nearer, her .tel page will include more resources to encompass “all things Maelle”. Ricker is undeniably one of the world’s top snowboardcross racers and a great medal hope for Canada.

Blenzcoffee

Ideas

George Moen, President of Blenz Canadian Coffee Company, heard about .tel at a High Output Business Network event, and has come to appreciate it since. George has blogged about his experience “Why I bought georgemoen.tel and why you will get yours!.

Starting with a personal business card, his enthusiasm has lead George to setup an extensive .tel for his business, BlenzCoffee.tel. You can learn about their latest specials, follow them on Flickr or Facebook, or navigate to a local store nearest to you. Each location has a direct contact number and a detailed description of the nearby area.
Since many BlenzCoffee customers heard about .tel and wanted to get their name too, George has setup a reseller account, and now offers .tel domain names over the counter.
“We at HOBN think this will be a great tool for our network but also for anyone who can use the internet for their business or career,” writes George in his blog.

Dear Tenant…

To: Helen Bailey
Subject: Pets in the building

Dear Helen,

Thankyou for your letter concerning pets in my apartment. I understand that having dogs in the apartment is a violation of the agreement due to the comfort and wellbeing of my neighbours and I am currently soundproofing my apartment with egg cartons as I realise my dogs can cause quite a bit of noise. Especially during feeding time when I release live rabbits.

Regards, David.

Hello David

I have received your email and wish to remind you that the strata agreement states that no animals are allowed in the building regardless of if your apartment is soundproof. How many dogs do you have at the premises?

Helen

Subject: Re: Re: Pets in the building

Dear Helen,

Currently I only have eight dogs but one is expecting puppies and I am very excited by this. I am hoping for a litter of at least ten as this is the number required to participate in dog sled racing. I have read every Jack London novel in preparation and have constructed my own sled from timber I borrowed from the construction site across the road during the night. I have devised a plan which I feel will ensure me taking first place in the next national dog sled championships. For the first year of the puppies life I intend to say the word mush then chase them violently around the apartment while yelling and hitting saucepan lids together. I have estimated that the soundproofing of my apartment should block out at least sixty percent of the noise and the dogs will learn to associate the word mush with great fear so when I yell it on race day, the panic and released adrenaline will spur them on to being winners. I am so confident of this being a foolproof plan that I intend to sell all my furniture the day before the race and bet the proceeds on coming first place.

Regards, David.

David, I am unsure what to make of your email. Do you have pets in the apartment or not?

Helen

From: David Thorne

To: Helen Bailey
Subject: Re: Re: Re: Re: Pets in the building

Dear Helen,

No. I have a goldfish but due to the air conditioner in my apartment being stuck on a constant two degrees celcius, the water in its bowl is iced over and he has not moved for a while so I do not think he is capable of disturbing the neighbours. The ducks in the bathroom are not mine. The noise which my neighbours possibly mistook for a dog in the apartment is just the looping tape I have of dogs barking which I play at high volume while I am at work to deter potential burglars from breaking in and stealing my tupperware. I need it to keep food fresh. Once I ate leftover chinese that had been kept in an unsealed container and I experienced complete awareness. The next night I tried eating it again but only experienced chest pains and diarrhoea.

Regards, David.

To: David Thorne
Subject: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Pets in the building

Hello David

You cannot play sounds of dogs or any noise at a volume that disturbs others. I am sure you can appreciate that these rules are for the benefit of all residents of the building. Fish are fine. You cannot have ducks in the apartment though. If it was small birds that would be ok.

Helen

From: David Thorne

Dear Helen,

They are very small ducks.

Regards, David.

From: Helen Bailey

To: David Thorne
Subject: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Pets in the building

David, under section 4 of the strata residency agreement it states that you cannot have pets. You agreed to these rules when you signed the forms. These rules are set out to benefit everyone in the building including yourself. Do you have a telephone number I can call you on to discuss?

Helen

From: David Thorne
Date: Friday 22 May 2009 5.02pm
To: Helen Bailey
Subject: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Pets in the building

Dear Helen,

The ducks will no doubt be flying south for the winter soon so it will not be an issue. It is probably for the best as they are not getting along very well with my seventeen cats anyway. .

Regards, David.

From: Helen Bailey
Date: Monday 25 May 2009 9.22am

Subject: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Pets in the building

David, I am just going to write on the forms that we have investigated and you do not have any pets.

What kind of mirror are they looking in before leaving home????

Posted in Humor by eyebee on October 21, 2009

West Virginia

I’ve seen people matching their outfits with their Jordans . This is the first time
I’ve seen the kicks match the Nascar jacket; and he obviously wants everyone
to see his shoes!
Arkansas
She must be on her way to her job as a back-up dancer for Salt-N-Peppa.
California
Cabbage Patch Man comes complete with a birth certificate,
application for adoption and they are each sold separately.
Oklahoma

He is wearing… a trash bag… as a skirt. I can’t even fathom
a reason why! – “Well maybe it was some sort of an emergency.â€
Who knows what he is going to use the Tupperware for.
California
Its not her fault; that guy’s fabulous rat tail makes all the girls pull their skirts up.
Utah
Got 4 to 1 odds saying she smelled her hand after she pulled it back out.
Oregon
He is like a parachute slowing down that drag-racer!!
Seriously, pick the kid up or buy him the candy bar he wants.
I’m not sure what point you are trying to make by dragging
him across the floor of a Walmart.
Georgia
Oh, It’s like a garbage bag filled with creamed corn.
California
C’mon now. This brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘half-assed’.
Texas
This is either the ugliest woman ever,
the worst cross-dresser ever, or a guy
that is really bad at choosing gender
appropriate clothes. Maybe it’s all three –
an ugly woman, cross-dressing as a man,
who can’t pick out manly clothes.
T exas
Well the bleach from earlier obviously didn’t do the trick because
I still see this…. I’m switching to Drano.
Utah
I guess he thought he could roll his underwear
over his pants and use them as a belt…didn’t work.
Texas
I know, I know…… I want to see his old man boobs in
that mesh tank-top as well. Looks like we gotta settle for t
he shorts crammed with Depends. Sorry to disappoint.
Florida
“What is Walmart gay?†– great question;
Walmart gay is extra flamboyant attire like this,
that is still rooted in Walmartness. For example,
tying your shirt up like so is very flamboyant,
however it is also flannel. Pink shorts – big belt buckle.
Big goofy hat – doesn”t match a thing I think you get the idea.
California

If you’re going to wear a nice summer skirt like this,
don’t ruin it with those boots mister, because that is just wrong!
Ohio

Dear Rapunzel, that looks HEAVY AS HELL!!!
It looks like a rolled up rug chillin’ on your dome!
How/why do you put up with that?
P.S. I like your short yellow shorts and big shoes.
Georgia

I bet this guy is wearing a condom just so everything is tight and snug….
come to think of it, this guy kind of looks like a big condom
but I don’t have the balls to tell him that.
Unknown

“What?! I’m not wearing this because I crave attention.
This stuff is really, really comfortable.â€
California
Cat food, check. Ace bandage, check.
Scuba diver for fish tank, check.

Rare Beer Tuesday

Posted in Uncategorized by eyebee on October 20, 2009

Rare Beer Tuesday (10/20)

Please join us today (Tuesday, October 20th) from 4pm to 6pm for a very special “Rare Beer Tuesday” meet-n-greet with Brooklyn Brewery Brewmaster Garrett Oliver!  For those who may not already know of Garrett, he is one of the most highly revered brewers, beer authors and beer judges in the world!  Garrett will be here to talk about Brooklyn Brewery, and release the latest Brewmaster’s Reserve beer called Manhattan Project on the growler station (along with a vintage 2008 keg of Black Chocolate Stout).  He’ll also be signing bottles/growlers as well as his book “The Brewmaster’s Table” which is the premiere resource on pairing fine food and beer.  Copies of the book will be available in store.  This book is a great resource for yourself or the ultimate gift for beer and food lovers alike!  Come have one personalized by the author himself!

About Manhattan Project:
Inspired by the popular cocktail, Manhattan Project is “a robust rye beer, aged in Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey barrels and then infused with the herbs and spices that flavor red vermouth and bitters.  Then a dash of tart cherry, and the result is the Manhattan Project”.  This will be the only appearance of this beer in South Carolina.  Growlers will be first come first serve.  Please note the earlier than usual start time of 4pm.  Growler fills of Manhattan Project are only $15 and will go fast so get on down!
