Deer Park, NY (PRWEB) November 3, 2010
URL shortener 1-z.us adds "Rated-XXX" warnings to shortened URLs with link or content containing provocative words hinting graphic sexual content. This helps protect minors, warns people who don't wish to see such material and helps legal pornography purveyors comply with their own local and 195 other country laws worldwide.
"Freedom of speech and peace thorough cooperation, respect and tolerance," owner Bill Purkins said, "and this likely helps porn sellers make more money. Legal adults, their customers, seeing "Rated-XXX" on short links? They'll know it's the good stuff and will spend less time searching, more time buying. I'm laughing my expletive deleted off here."
Reasoning his 8-year-old grandson had nothing preventing major or social network search engines from allowing purposeful or accidental clicking of shortened links that skip porn site entrance page warnings, instead leading to adult videos, Purkins designed a relational database reminiscent of International Trade systems he programmed for household name Fortune 500 companies from 1981 to 2006.
The top level table is the world's 196 ISO country codes, correlating to top level domain name extensions, i.e. US for the United States, ME for Montenegro, CO for Columbia. Purkins added data elements, warning / severity flags for keywords and phrases for illegal or potentially illegal sexual content also text warning(s) in local language to warn people before viewing adult content.
Then, for both persons shortening URLs and end users, IP Address ranges that computers fall within can be matched to the country, and, as Purkins explains, "it's so simple it's elegant. Only worry? Who writes the disclaimer on the Arabic and the Chinese? I'm not a lawyer, and I am not going into the censorship business, no way. Don't shoot the messenger, baby."
Purkins states that the Internet, which he has been programming for since 1998, is sort of a parlor game for him after "building rocket ship software since 1981, for over 25 Fortune 500 International Logistics and supply chain fulfillment back office systems. Household names, all of them, but if I use them? Or tell you my buddy's name? I'd get sued. It's their system, not mine. IBM I can say though. They gave me and my partner an AS/400 pre-release, I guess they wanted to see if we could sell one but also break it. We did both. First though we blew the stack in two days. Ha. Fun."
"But, at 55 years old and starting my life over after a rough millennium until a couple years ago, my former reign as Mr. Mom to three teenagers leaves me sort of an empty nester. I had survived major open heart surgery, three minor-strokes, lost my wife, and also abruptly stopped being a millionaire all in just one year, eventually sort of depressed if you know what I'm saying, and finally, no job, 19 cents in the bank. It's an old, brutal sob story, but today I laugh, just tell people today I'm happy, my kids are grown and healthy being young adults, you know three cell phone numbers a year? That age. And my beautiful parents are 82 and get out more than I do. I'm trying to make it on my own from home and I go days without putting shoes on, 19 hours a day.
"I even dated a bit this Summer. Women my own age. It was neat, sharing dinner on plates without cartoon animals on 'em and real cloth napkins. Expense accounts and limos back and forth to the airport gave me a taste for nice restaurants, but when I'm broke I'm happy with a taco, too. No love of money here, man. And the guy from corporate who lied to me so the market wouldn't see insiders bailing out? I was recovering from heart surgery when they said I couldn't sell that stock that tanked and it went from 35 bucks a share to 2 British pence. He just hung himself I heard. Bad medicine, Lone Ranger. So, I got different attitudes on money these days. You understand?"
