Frequently Asked Questions ( FAQ )
Question: Is that all you think about is money?
Answer: Yes. But it's a plenty-big topic, since it covers everything from buying lunch today to
Question: How Long has this site been around?
Answer: Since 1995. It started as my MBA capstone project. I didn't get 'papered' until late in life. Found the importance of degrees to be over-rated, but necessary if you plan to work in the field of higher education as I have.
Question: What's the charge for this site?
Answer: Zip, nadda...This whole thing is free unless you subscribe to my weekly premium content offering at www.peoplenomics.com for $40/year. Most folks tell me that it's the best newsletter value on the internet. The revenue from subscriptions is what keeps the UrbanSurvival.com site and the mirror site www.independencejournal.com going.
Subscriptions to Peoplenomics also help to offset costs for projects like the www.nationaldreamcenter.com site.
Question: Why do you have a 'mirror site'?
Answer: there are some corporations (as well as government offices) that have installed server blocks which prevent people from accessing the UrbanSurvival.com site. Most of these users can access via the www.independencejournal.com site, as it's got a raw news look and some scrolling headlines from Google.
Question: Are there other ways to get to UrbanSurvival from behind a firewalled office computer?
Answer: One thing to try is accessing via our http://www2.urbansurvival.com or if that doesn't work (although it usually does) try the http://www3.urbansurvival.com layer. Most 'police snoop' packages don't include the www2 and www3 prefixes - just the plain www. and http:// named servers.
Question: How many people read UrbanSurvival - or am I the only nutjob out there?
Answer: No, you're not alone. Apparently, there are lots of us nutters about because most weekdays we serve up over 40,000 page views.
Just to give you an idea how many 'fellow' thinkers are out there, in 2009 UrbanSurvival served up 15.7-million pages to more than 701-thousand visitors chewing up 228 GB of bandwidth along the way.
Question: What if I send you email...will you read it?
Answer: I usually read everything - eventually. However, I often won't send an individual reply if it is something of general interest - that's where column ideas come from. My email address is no secret: firstname.lastname@example.org gets here.
Emails are answered in the following priority:
Question: Can I come and visit you at your ranch sometime?
Answer: Hell no.
We're physically very private - keep to ourselves folks. Virtually interesting on the web, we hope. But you'd have a warmer reception trying to visit the White House than our ranch. Except for what's on the site here, we hold privacy to be a fundamental and holy right. If we wanted people around, we'd move back to Boca Raton or Burbank. You don't see any moving vans, right?
Question: So you & your wife are what...hermits?
Answer: No. Most hermits don't write economic sites and are more sensible. Eccentric recluse and reclusette might b e closer.
Question: So why should I believe anything on your site?
Answer: Frankly, I don't care whether you do, or don't. I'd wager my take on things is better than what you'll find in the MainStreamMedia by 50% or more, though.
Question: Is this a government disinformation site?
Answer: Nope. But if anyone wants to buy the site, $10-million and I'm out. I'd keep Peoplenomics and writing for subscribers. Everyone has their price, right? Strangely, no offers yet...darn it.
Question: You get up every morning at 5 AM to do this for nothing?
Answer: No. I do it because it really has been quite rewarding (helps me be a better writer) and there are enough Peoplenomics subscribers that I feel like I owe it to them. At some point, I may post only for subscribers...but that won't happen until the real crackdown on dissent starts up. I expect at some point, those who question the paradigm will become targets during the last gasps of paradigm defending by the old order.
Question: How can I make my computer run better?
Answer: Assuming you have stripped all unnecessary files from your start-up folder, try a good anti-virus program like www.antivir.com and then download the latest version of Maxa-Tools Maxa Cookie Manager.
