- A word about user supported software: -

The user supported software concept (usually referred to as
shareware) is an attempt to provide software at low cost. The
cost of offering a new product by conventional means is
staggering, and hence dissuades many independent authors and
small companies from developing and promoting their ideas. User
supported software is an attempt to develop a new marketing
channel, where products can be introduced at low cost.

If user supported software works, then everyone will benefit.
The user will benefit by receiving quality products at low cost,
and by being able to "test drive" software thoroughly before
purchasing it. The author benefits by being able to enter the
commercial software arena without first needing large sources of
venture capital.

But it can only work with your support. We're not just talking
about THE LOVE BASE here, but about all user supported software.
If you find that you are still using a program after a couple of
weeks, then pretty obviously it is worth something to you, and
you should send in a contribution.

- THE PURPOSE OF THE LOVE BASE -


We live in an age devoid of ideals, devoid of dreams, devoid
of hope. The dollar is our God, television our mentor, the
newspaper our Bible. Drugs and sex make our heaven. Nobody
even thinks of perfection as we strive headlong for mediocrity
with workman-like efficiency.

We are dying.

The ideal of perfect romantic love is far from being the
loftiest of ideals. It hardly compares with the ideals of true
knowledge and wisdom. Yet the romantic ideal is far superior to
the so-called ideals of material wealth and power. And like the
king in Kierkegaard's parable, we may learn to risk everything
in order to make love (perfection) possible.

An ideal is the most wonderful disease, for it makes one
totally dissatisfied with life. Only then can one look higher,
higher, and maybe . . . begin . . . to think.


---------------------------------------------------------------


Special mention:

A significant number of the poems in The Love Base have been
contributed by local poet/philosopher Dan Rowden. I would be
pleased to pass on any correspondence to him if you should wish
to contact him. I understand he is looking for a publisher for
his latest work.

Other shareware programs by the same author:


BREEZE: Word processor/text editor, many features. Can turn
your ordinary text files into stand-alone executable
programs (with viewing & searching features) for you
to distribute. Analyze readability, check spelling,
statistical analysis, sorting, indexing, multiple
files/windows. Very easy to learn and use.

TEXTLIFE: Text file to .EXE program converter.

And four computer books:

POISON FOR THE HEART: The ultimate philosophy.

Written in an aphoristic style for those who don't like to waste
their time with padding. Discusses the law of cause and effect
and its far reaching ramifications. Investigates the nature of
the ego, attachment, religion, men and women. Arguably the only
book a thinking person needs to read.


WIT FOR WISDOM: Compact truth.

"Wit for Wisdom" is a compilation of the most incisive gems of
wit, along with a few drops of my own blood. Unlike normal
collections of quotes, aphorisms and apothegms, this work has
both a purpose and a message. So this is not so much a book for
wits, but for thinkers. Wit for wisdom is a kind of wit that is
too witty even for wits. Of all the areas of interest covered
in this work, the subjects of the sexes and the relationships
between them predominate, they being responsible for the larger
part of our foolishness. The viewing program allows you to send
the text to your printer or to a text file on disk.


VENOM CRYSTALS:

A compilation of the most powerful spiritual/philosophic
writings of all time. Includes the best from Buddhism,
Christianity, Hinduism, Taoism, Kierkegaard, and Nietzsche.


LETTERS BETWEEN ENEMIES:

Amazing correspondence between two thinkers. Explores the life
experiences and philosophies of two friends on the path to
Knowledge.

"Love hurts"

by John E. Pickersgill
Tasmania


I knew a man called Tom McPherson.
He was a very clumsy person.
Two left arms and two left feet,
The clumsiest man you'd ever meet.

Each step he took he fell down twice.
He tripped and stumbled all through life.
Accidents that couldn't happen
Were Tom McPherson's daily pattern.

Now you may doubt and you may scoff,
But he's fell in and he's fell off,
Everything you'd care to mention,
Although, it's not been his intention.

One day in Spring he fell again,
In love this time with clumsy Gwen.
Her two left feet and two left arms,
He thought her most appealing charms.

Of course you'd have no doubt at all
That they were married in the fall,
And at the altar said "I do",
While falling down a time or two.

A honeymoon of carefree bliss,
They fell off that, they fell off this,
But they fell more in love than ever,
Having accidents together.

Weeks of love, of joy and rapture,
Of bruises, cuts, sometimes a fracture,
Sweet memories shared of true romance
Travelling home by ambulance.

But now here comes the tragic part,
A bit to wring the hardest heart.
They both were fell on by a horse,
It was an accident - of course.

Life's ups and downs are unremitting,
Their end was sad but strangely fitting.
An ending flat, yet nice and neat,
The horse you see, had four left feet.
