  After several years of failure to accomplish it's goals, I will be closing ReasonMaster.Net.

This is not the death of my business, however. In it's place I'm erecting Mark E Kraus Consulting. The new website will be www.markekraus.com
The site is not up and active yet but the domain name has been purchased and reserved. I will begin making the pages for the site this week in my spare time.

Here is what Mark E Kraus Consulting has to offer:

Full range of information technology consulting from start to finsh including the processes of consulting, purchasing, installing, configuring, maintaining, programming, networking, advanced and specialized features and options, and documentation

Marriage services that including small and basic wedding planning. Ceremonies specializing in traditional and nonunconventional/counterculture weddings-traditional Christian weddings, Specialty weddings, and unconventional/counter culture weddings.
Also availble for baptizing, union ceremonies, and christenings.

Other services include research and informational services such as small market analysis, statistics, studies, informative rhetoric, small business consulting,  process and technical documentation, and small scale or web based publishing.

My goal is to maintain a level of 99% client statisfaction, immediate or realtime responsiveness to clients' needs, and going above and beyone the call of duty to create loyal and trusting clients. If there is a service not offered it will be outsourced or sought out with the same vigor and responsiveness found in all offered services.

  I took care of some loggin issues. i decided to go back to the original logging method. as it turns out, manual log maintenence is much easier than trying to do it automaticaly.

  Oh, This meaningful life! So full of this and that and let's not forget the other things. We walk around with music in our heads, stars in our eyes, and warmth in our hearts...
Or so we like to believe. Most of us are unhappy, lonely, and bored. It's as if we were meant to live our lives one way then completely forgo all rules and settle for what's there.

I'm alive. Breathing and and feeding keep me aware of this. With out those I'd be prone to think I had died and gone to hell or some sort of 5th demensional reality comprised up, down, left, right, and complete insanity.

Just the other day, a child looked me in the eye and said that her life was shit. Strong words comming from a 5 year old, but I was forced to agree with her.
"This life just wasn't made for people like you and me to live in." I said to her. "We were made somewhere else and put here for some sort of amusement. Dreamers like you and me are all that's left of that other place and time. Prepair yourself, child. truth is stranger than fiction."

This is not the first time this has happened; comming accross one of my kind. There seem to be a few of us still ingering around, holding on to what we know and feel, and searching etenaly for that which should be. Dreamers are a lost and dying race and this life is what is killing us. With a mind so full, so active... it's hard to believe things could be so slow. possibilities exist only in the mind. It's actualities we deal with; numbers, statistics, lines on paper, and complicated pie charts. We could never touch a possibility and it seems hey are the only thing that exist for ever. Even when the moment of their usfullness has passed, like passing a woman and never getting her name.

It's times like this I wish I didn't think at all. Silence can bring comfort but only in the silence of my mind could I be completely gratified. Gratified not satisfied because this world could never offer enough gratifications to be satisfied. Silence of the mind could only do so much. But what it could do is take my mind off all of this.

Just a vacation.

  This Journal can now be accessed through http://status.reasonmaster.net
Also, I moved the failure site to my comcast homepage and gave it the name http://failure.reasonmaster.net
Supposedly, if my site goes down for any reason, the failure site should kick in.

The move will take place tonight and there may be a few days of down time.

Email regarding the "Love is Selfish" essay 
  markthepoet
 
12:42am 07/04/2003
  Email from Fork and Spoon:

Hello. I'm a 16 year old girl with sleeping problems. The mind goes to odd places in the dark hours of the night. My hands followed accordingly and typed up something, http://www.xanga.com/nar. When I type things that may actually be of importance, it usually happens at night after 12 am. This is unfortunate because a few hours after 12 I go into a dazed/nearly-delirious and ranting state. Doesn't make for good essays (though this one English teacher of mine seemed to like it...she was odd.) After typing up my entry, though I should've done it before, I typed in "love is selfish" in Google and got many results about a person named Ayn Rand (whose books I look forward to reading). And I eventually found a link to you as well. I'm fascinated by what you wrote about love. I feel better that someone has/had the same idea about love being a selfish thing. However, I'm still not sure what my conclusion is exactly; it keeps changing and I end up in these viscious loops, you see.

I've never "been in love", nor have I gotten close to it. I've never really had an interest in it. I've always thought of it as a masochistic thing to do. I don't even really intend on having a romantic relationship with anyone but already I'm torturing myself with love. This thing they call love has been around for centuries yet it's still one of the world's mysterious. There's so many situations, so many conditions...it's making my head hurt. If it hasn't been solved by now I doubt have much chance of figuring it out on my own at home in front of this computer.

I just want to thank you for thinking and writing and sharing. I wish you the best luck with yourself and I hope for happiness in your life.

  The DNS has been restored. Right now it is using my local DNS server. In the next few days you may notice a few minutes of down time as the manu many changes I have made take affect and propagate. People on the east coast will notice a few .reasonmaster.net's not working. Central and west coast should all be online and the rest of the world should be up in 8 hours.

Things will be in place to prevent trhis from happening in the future. I'm working on the worst case scenarios for the site and disaster recovery (level 1).

  http://www.reasonmaster.net is back up and online. i'm not sure which DNS server is serving the pages, so as of now the only site that works is www. I'll give more notice when other things come online.
