Mart writes "Mahir Cagri, from Izmir, Turkey, was projected to instant fame when news about his homepage spread among internet users . Entitled
Welcome to my homepage!!!!! I kiss you!!!! the page contains pictures
of Mahir and describes his lifestyle in broken English:
"I like to take foto-camera (amimals , towns , nice nude models andpeoples)....."
Mahir's homepage has received over a million hits. It has been featured in
Salon magazine, and is covered in this week's edition of
The Onion under the headline "Turkish man Kiss You."
Sadly the homepage wasn't real. Mahir
claims that his home page had been pirated and that his worlwide fame, or infamy is undeserved. "
That's the thing about people who think they hate computers. What they
really hate is lousy programmers.
