"How twisted is this?"
I was setting here surfing this morning, and naturally ended up at RB, checked out the new listings and reviews and cut and pasted several into my Palm Pilot, and stopped to think,I wonder how many other people go to these extremes to have a list of well reviewed providers on hand at any time. I am up to 50 in my Pilot as of this morning.
Is this going too far...I wonder?

Being a married guy, I keep them in there with a password just in case, when I was single, I did the same thing you do, but that got a little too open for me.

I have absolutely no idea why you would need to access reviews on 50 providers at a time, but out of curiosity may I ask you how many you have actually visited?

Of the fifty I have on my Pilot I have visited about 20 of them so far. I travel a lot so I have listings for LA, Seattle, Phoenix and all around the Bay Area.The most recent was Wednesday, I got stuck in San Jose after 3PM, and I have to travel to Contra Costa so I called a listing on Homestead (Tracy).She was not there but I met a lovely young little Asian girl by the name of Connie, killed an hour and headed home.
From everyone's reaction I am beginning to think I am a little more perverted than I thought.
Oh well, so be it.

Thanks for your response. I constantly read posts about guys who won't see a provider until she has a few positive reviews. Would you see someone who isn't reviewed?

Sure, I went to see Tamara only on her add and picture, had a great time and have seen her several times. Hell, before I found RB it was all hit and miss, more misses than hits too.

Speaking of Tamara (forgive the minor hijacking) am I the only one who thinks her current B & W photos suck? She's much better looking in person. It may be the lighting, or something else, but her current pics make her look much older than she is. I've thought about calling her to tell her so, just haven't gotten around to it.

Agreed, I left her a message last week telling her to work with someone new for photos, but have been traveling and not had a chance to see her. Maybe this week.

I find that the reviews are useful only to determine who not to see. I also find the postive ones to be much, much, less reliable. Guys have given 10's where I thought a 3 or 4 would have been applicable. I know YMMV, but to be of any use they should be standardized to at least some extent. I mean, does anyone really believe that it's impossible, as the 10 rating would infer, to find any woman prettier than krissy kox, or valerie of the East Bay, just to give two examples?

I try to see unreviewed providers. For one, that's the only way to find the undiscovered gems. Secondly, with the exception of Mora, I've seen everyone locally (over 100, but some are now retired) that I care to.

Nah, your list is cool, but never forget the fun is in working your way throough it.

I agree with Sam that the negative reviews are usually more helpful than the positive ones. One thing I look for (in both types) is whether different reviewers report similar experiences with things like kissing, DATY, etc.

I had a recent, less than satisfactory, session with a highly rated provider (new review, Fresno area) and, when I went back and re-read the reviews, I saw that there was one reported trait that should have been a red flag (for me). In this instance it was that everything the provider did and said was such an obvious (and bad) acting job that I couldn't get past it. Zero chemistry, 35 minutes, see ya later.

p.s. Sam, in answer to your other post - here's the link for Tamara. She used to advertise as Irene (she was blonde then) and was with Garden of Delights when they were around. She's a keeper and looks much better than these pics.

Thank you for passing on the link. I appreciate it. As it turns out, I saw her when she was Irene, but I didn't even recognize her with the longer, darker her in those B&W pics.

Yup, using the pilot is not at all twisted, over the years I've accumulated quite a few entries, I'll count them sometime. Speaking of password protection, check this out for your pilot: http://linkesoft.com/english/secret/.

Depends on why you need to be carrying around the data with you
all the time. Just to have a handy list of #'s to call on a moment's notice, kinda makes sense. As long as your careful with
who could access it, that would be a smoking gun that would be
very difficult to explain to a significant other. "The LA cops
planted it" wouldn't go over well.

50....I can't even think of 5 in the Bay Area I wanna see.

LAST EDITED ON 28-Apr-01 AT 06:11 PM (PDT)

I download several sites once in awhile and keep copies on my laptop. It's easier since I don't always have an internet connection when I'm on the road, looking for some distractions.

I keep the full RB site downloaded to my laptop. I put names/numbers with short notes on my palm. I tried using avantgo on RB, but RB is just too big. I'd love to have it all on my palm, or even full sections, I just can't figure out how to do it.

I have 52 guys working for me that do hardware and software support for outside companies, some of them are really good with "special projects". I will ask themn if they can figure out a way to compress it and load an entire section. who knowa maybe it can be done. What Palm do you have?

19. "not twisted at all"
Hey Derf,

This is not twisted at all. It has been repeated many, many times: it pays to do your homework in this hobby, and with all the choices, phone numbers, schedules, locations, etc., etc., homework is done much more efficiently if you are well organized.

p.s.,

Just don't beam the 50 providers' names to your mother-in-law's Palm by mistake--
