Thanks to cooking master
Tom for emailing me this link.
If they really wanted to encourage people send them balls, they should post a frequently updated photo of the ball collection. Give us something we can see. Something we know that we are helping to contribute to. Something we can believe in.
they have listed the submissions:
though they should have more photos.
690 people have been to that site since June 6, 2003. and they have received 42 balls. I think that's a good percentage.
I wish i thought of that idea. I like sooooper balls. Though I don't think i would want to pay a monthly web hosting fee to have that site. Maybe they are running it off a home computer.
I've got 144 balls in a box right here. Maybe i should make a website about that.
no, it's more fun to have people send you balls in the mail. Can you mail a bouncy ball all by itself? I don't there would be enough room for the address and the stamps.
pay for hosting...? we have stuff you can buy to offset the costs (which are minimal, and there aren't any monthly fees). it's turned out pretty well so far. heh. we'd love to get a single bouncy ball in the mail, especially to see how clever someone would be in getting the stamp and address on there... maybe we'll even have a contest...!
yeah, i pay for hosting. I use http://www.olm.net/cnet
I heard setting up a server can be tough work. So do you run your own server, Dave?
I also posted about bouncy balls here
