Phaster Set Search Page

Greed and crass commercialism overshadowed the noble intent of Tim Berners-Lee and Al Gore (the co-inventors of the Internet) who thought the web should be a bloat free place to share knowledge and find useful content. Hearkening back to the original ideals of the web, Phaster is the portal of choice for users who want a content rich, bloat free web guide with just a bit of subliminal sarcasm.

Here is how to make:

phaster dot com (no frills version) or
phaster dot net (JavaScript version with a nav bar and pull down menus) or
phaster dot org (X Rated Porn Search Engine Interface)

your personal search page using:

America Online 3.0 — 4.0
America Online 6.0
Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.x
Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.x
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x
Netscape Navigator 3.x
Netscape Navigator 4.x

B.T.W. now that you have set PHASTER as your personal search page (or at least I hope you are considering it) you may also want to check out this list of online book mark managers.

America Online 6.0

FYI AOL Time Warner 6.0 promises to be the most comprehensive version yet, but the company seems to have nixed one feature from its Web browser: a home page button. That means AOL subscribers cannot set their own default home pages when connecting to the Internet through the online service. Gosh, do you think a move like this is designed to keep AOL users captive and improve the corporate bottom line?

Phaster Legal Crap

Since every major portal or eCommerce site (i.e. Amazon, AOL, eBay, Micro$oft, and Yahoo) has a legal and/or privacy statement to cover their ass, the powers that be (that would be me) decided to follow their example and enumerate what users of this site agree to:

1    I agree to be probed and flogged (darn I meant to say “logged”) by aliens. The objective of aforementioned probing and logging being, the past, present or future owner(s), operator(s), shareholder(s) of this site intend to buy and sell (i.e. market) your sole, as easily as one can buy and sell the souls of lawyers, politicians and day traders.

2    If you are female, between the ages of 18 to 21 in the United States, or 16 to 18 in Europe or whatever is the lowest age of consent one can get away with in your neck of the woods, and look good in a bikini and phuzzy bunny slippers, I agree to submit to be logged (see part 1) personally by “Ben” the demigod of phaster.

3    I agree to hang phuzzy dice from my rear view mirror. I further vow to buy only official phaster phuzzy dice (once a quarter when the demigod of phaster is able to locate a suitable source of cheap dice that can be greatly marked up).

4    I indemnify and hold blameless the god fearing, morally upstanding phaster demigod for any and all damages which may result, either directly or indirectly, from accessing material (subliminal or overt) found on this or any other site. I further assume all liability for any damages which might result from viewing, accessing material or contents on this or any other site.

5    I agree that I will not steal this site outright and put it on my own website and pass it off as my own work. Nor will I use, view, access, share, show my sniggering co-workers (who should be working instead of reading this dung) or think about this site in violation of international agreements and/or treaties, or federal, state, county, city or incorporated village laws or their non-U.S. equivalent. Furthermore I will not share any questionable materials with minors found within or as a result of using phaster, or mix paper and plastic recyclables or allow minors to mix paper and plastic recyclables.

6    I agree to quit wasting time and bandwidth, think green and be nice to my fellow human beings (even thought some of them are stupid jerks). PLEASE NOTE: this site contains lots of my drivel which is meant to be lighthearted. So if you are easily offended, gullible or are humor impaired, go elsewhere!
