I address the reform tranzition concernz on the website. Several placez but mainly in the Feared and Reviled Schlock Tank Analogy. Its ritten in Nooalf, so you woud be better off installing the font if you decide you want to read it.

The short version: Reform as envisioned by the run of the mill reformer iz a waste uv time. The gummit woud goof it up.

The way I am doing it costs nothing.

Pragmatic works in mysterious wayz. Look at any revolution. Before it happened it wuz impossible, afterward, everybody seez that it obviously had to happen.

I clicked on your link: first think is a big breasted angel talking to an alien and a monkey. Then some difficult to read all-caps stuff. (I'm certainly not installing a font).

Look, you'll do what you want to do, but the thing you need to remember is that before there is a revolution, there is a groundswell of discontent. That doesn't exist here. Most people seem to be fine with English as it is. And you are naive if you think there would be a cost-free transition. I can't recall the amount cited but I once was told how much it cost just to switch from imperial to metric here in canada and it was a shockingly high number.

Anyhow, you have a passion, and I don't think anything I can tell you will discourage you in the slightest. I just think you are in for neverending disappointment with this quest of yours. But it's your choice of course! I'll drop it now.

I appreciate your honest opinion.

Like Mr. Wu, I'm an out uv the box thinker. Az difficult az people like us can be to understand, it works both wayz; its hard for me to understand why other people cant understand wut I'm saying.

The first bunch uv pagez at http://nooalf.com/ are in regular English and cover all the reazonz why and how, including why its a zero cost tranzition.

The work is as interesting as the client. It's a crapshoot as to how easy or hard a project may be when setting up the website. AOL users are IMO the hardest people to have to deal with. There are still plenty of them around.

I have no idea of what it would cost to set up or maintain an actual hosting company. For a few simple websites, I know I can do it easy enough with a simple dedicated computer. When I started doing websites I got unlimited server space with a ton of bells and whistles for free. It was a trade off for beta testing.

Alot uv us AOLerz are not computer geeks.

AOL had the rite idea frum the beginning - make it eazy. Unfortunately, they drifted away frum that gradually, probably frum hiring too many computer geeks in executive pozitionz with the 'It worked for me' attitude. Sum stuff that worked fine went away or accumulated extra steps, yet sum stuff that could hav been better refined for ergonomics were neglected.

An example, wen you go frum one screen name to another, a window pops up telling you how long youv been online, requiring you to click OK before moving on. Worthless unless you have an account with limited minutes, which I never had and maybe duznt exist any more.
