I'm going to take a baby step out onto a very thick and sturdy limb here
and guess that this unsent facetious answer would have conjured up
memories of Don Marti's old "Realtime Backhoe Project", where the sites
coinciding with the backbone links to spam-friendly ISPs would be chosen
as locations in which to practice the careful use and operation of heavy
vehicles used for soil cultivation and industrial construction.

The insipid neologism "blog" appears to mean little more        Nick Moffitt
than a Web site that *actually* gets updated, as opposed  nick at teh.entar.net
to one that *promises* to be updated REAL SOON NOW and
includes an animation of a MEN AT WORK sign.
