    So I was checking my stats on my host and clicked a new link to my pet site. I saw they made an article about one of mine, and credited my page with a link back to it.

    But their article is so bad I'm embarrassed to be a source to it. Ya'all think maybe it's a spinner article:


    "For the full intelligence and evidence for this years 2010 Wiggle Waggle road reserve to increase domestic news  to Cranes Roost Park in Orlando, selfish, and details the links below.

    Although most pet owners will bring their dogs, you wake up straight on a transcription of the pet, cats, birds and lizards, as extensive as your pet in and dominate certain account."

    lol lol

    I enjoy reading those kind of articles -- It's like trying to understand a new language that uses English words, but they all mean something different. smile

      Yeah they can be funny as hell to read. I'm not even sure why the person gave a credit to my article, but then made their own spun article about it. A link is a link however. smile

      Yeh, reading it is sort of like a challenge to translation and interpretation skills.

      It reminds me of the website translationparty dot com - have you ever heard of it?

      You enter an English phrase, then click "Find Equilibrium."  It gets translated into Japanese, then back into English - and back and forth until it ..... reaches equilibrium!

      I entered "Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise" and it eventually turned into "Now, a large health exchange, please go to bed early."

      Maybe we could take spun articles and see what happens with them on that site - or even better do our own "translation party"!

    TBH it looks more like it's gone through a machine translator Bill. Spinners rely on thesaurus, online translators work by attempting a 'best guess' with both the translation and grammar.

      Well if it was I can see those don't work any better than spinner software. Except maybe make them more funny to read!

        Norah and I have a top-secret document with our favorite nonsense sentences from badly spun/translated hubs.  Endless entertainment.

      Yes I am on vacation, thanks. But I have a cold, I always get one when I come up north. So I have to stay inside for a few days. However I took these before I got a cold.

      Bill Manningposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Thanks, but they really don't look anywhere near as good as the full size images. I just have a Casio Exilim camera. You can take great shots with any digital camera these days.

      I also took some good video with my camcorder that has a 70X zoom lens on that mountain, you can see people walking around the sidewalk at that lodge down below with that. smile

    I could never afford a camera with a 70x zoom. I'm quite fascinated by photography, I enjoy taking pictures. Probably be a nice point and click type smile

    1. Bill Manning profile image72
      Bill Manningposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Oh the camcorder I have with the 70X zoom is a Panasonic SDR-S26, a cheap one at $250.00 new.

      And yes it's a true 70X zoom, not the other type that is not real zoom power. Not sure if you can still buy them new or not, they change so fast. smile
