Speaking of Sanjay... Patty's post reminds me that earlier this week Gupta's old InfoHunk profile got noticed on a discussion board in a thread on journalists of South Asian background who are covering the war.

This brought to my attention some problems with the old profile, the most severe of which involved the loss of shirtless pictures online. After digging around in my recycle bin I fixed the old post.* You should be able to freely gaze at poolside Gupta any time you want now, provided you don't have fear issues with body hair.

*Visually. The writing is unchanged despite my frequent urges to delete the whole thing.
CNN Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta, a trained neurosurgeon, performed emergency brain surgery at a U.S. field hospital in south central Iraq in an attempt to save the life of a wounded Iraqi boy.

A Quest comment. I found this recent comment hiding after an old Richard Quest post.

Here it is in all of its loveliness:
My name is Laura, I'm Spanish and I love Richard Quest since the first time I saw him on TV, three or four years ago. I'm travelling to London in May. I'm going to live there with a friend and I promise that the first thing I'll do will be looking for Richard Quest. If nobody loves him, I will. If nobody calls him I will. This is totally true, and if you could tell me his e.mail address I would be the happiest woman in the world. I'm a bit young for him but I don't care because I really want to know him and have a drink with him, or two. Lots of kisses Richard. Your friend for the future, Laura. Remember my name because I'll go and look for you one day of May.
Dear Laura,

Thanks for writing. I always suspected that Richard Quest's appeal was international. Have a safe trip to London and please consider posting here to provide an update on your efforts to meet him and/or the actual meeting. According to Quest Quips, which is devoted to Quest coverage, he can be reached at quest@cnn.com. I agree with you about the age issue, for the most part. Age is no matter when it comes to InfoHunk infatuation.

Buena Suerte.

Dan Abramania's arrival on the InfoHunks scene is notable for its breadth and depth of information and opinions on Dan. The Abrams Coloring Page and DANcounters are fun features for the entire family.
Posting problems.

1. The permanent links for the 2/6 - 3/14 posts aren't working properly. This means little to whoever may read this (although there do seem to be more referrals from outside sources nowadays), but it bothers me because I like to link to the posts about particular InfoHunks by their names on the list at right.

I've written Blogger Control about this issue, and if I don't hear soon I'll try the Blogger User Support group. I'm almost positive it's something I've done that's messed things up, but knowing this is not helping me solve the problem.
They work now. Yay!

2. No one besides me posts here. This is not really a problem, as I freely grant everyone permission to not post here, and especially to not read InfoHunks. (How kind of me.)

But it has made me think of why. A couple of possible reasons:

     a. If you had anything to post you could post it at your own place.

     b. If you didn't have your own place you could easily create one and it would probably look better than this and have working permalinks as well. This is a great idea. I've always hoped for the proliferation of beautiful InfoHunk-ish sites.

So, feel free to post links to your InfoHunk stuff and updates. I'll probably link you myself anyway if I find you in the referral records or through google searches for "sexy Lou Dobbs" but it may take a while. Think of this place as having infinite PostAd opportunities for your InfoHunk content.

Anyway, it's just an idea, and a desperate one at that.

3. This page and its posts looked completely unreadable on some earlier version of IE that my sister had on her laptop. I'm not sure I know how to do anything about that, but the designer has done a nice job of keeping things readable on the latest versions of IE and Netscape.
