I’m trying to help spread the word about this since it’s about my cousin and a very good cause.
Jon Thomann was injured a couple of years ago, and was in a coma for several months. He finally got back to walking, but he still has a limp and is very unbalanced. He’ll never be the same but at least he is alive. Jon’s father, Joe is working on trying to raise money to get this started in Mid-Missouri. They’ve raised about a third of the money they need, but still have a long ways to go.
Here’s the link to the article on the KOMU site: http://www.komu.com/news/family-pushes-to-bring-brain-injury-center-to-columbia/
Here’s the link to Jon’s caringbridge site: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/jonthomann/
If you want to help with the center itself, the donation on the caringbridge site listed above is not for the center – that’s for caringbridge donations, which is a good cause too…. The center’s website is http://www.headinjuryctr-stl.org/jeffday.html
Did not realize that zazzle products go so high on google searches for products. Need to take mental note of this (actually a real note here in the blog, lol) and focus on getting more stuff in there besides cafepress… Search for Jeff Thomann on google products has several zazzle hits. http://www.google.com/products?um=1&hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&gbv=2&q=jeff+thomann&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=lf
I started a google document… it might be a little easier to maintain than text formating in some Entropia Universe Thread or here in the blog, or on entries in Entropedia or something. It’s open to editing by anyone so it should be easy to keep things updated.

Almost nothing’s in it yet… but soon I’ll start using what info is available on Entropia Forum, Entropedia, and in game in the estate terminals to start making what info is in there accurate. I invite you to do so too. This is a huge project and I cannot do it alone.
There is a place on there to put the name of the TP, name of the continent, name of the planet, name of the service, a link to the service’s website or entropiaforum thread, and a link the the shop owner or estate holder’s avatar in entropiaforum… as I said, huge project…
I wanted to do this project about a year ago, but lots of things got in to my way due to lack of real world time, etc. I’m hoping that others will join me on this crusade to map out our virtual world, and make it easier to access the estate owners of various places, and make it easier to see exactly which shops are active and which are now.
We CAN make this the best darn resource on how to contact shop owners over time! 🙂 😉
Walmart has a neat little chart of quite a few free photo sharing places.
Walmart itself will do free unlimited space too if you buy at least one photo per year. I might look in to that too and share the membership with my wife so that Walmart doesn’t hit the kill switch and wipe out an account with thousands of photos.
Here’s a link to my first image on The 3d Studio.
I am not sure if I’ll use them as much as Turbosquid for individual photos like this one though since the minimum markup for a product is 10.00 on stock photos. However, for packs of multiple images that might be an ok price.
