Mark Shapiro's web page!     To Enforce a Judgment, contact me,, as I am revamping JudgmentBuy and found a lawyer who works in 50 states so may start a new web site, for now


A Judgment Enforcement, database, technical, and Internet-savvy "GoGuy" - a legend in my own mind, and more than a few other minds as well. I know more about judgment recovery than 99% of judgment enforcers and 30% of lawyers.   A long time ago, I was the one who created BABBA magazine, West Coast Online magazine, and West Coast Online - the ISP (before it was sold to Verio).   Check out the old issues of   BABBA and WCO Magazines.

Check out some funny stuff, a lens tutorial and selector, my "formal" resume or (informal resume) or about my trip to Bangkok or about songs I've listend to.

What's the best reminder program on earth? It's (the late) John R. McMullen's Early Bird. It's only available on the Mac. MacSoup is the best-designed Usenet reader around - and it's only on the Mac. Apple should put some OS9.22 features in OSX. I still want a Chooser.

Some neat technical sites are at:, and and - for software-based protocol analyzers. Also check out And a great Email and web server is FirstClass. This site built with BBEdit - the best Mac text/html editing tool.

"Never attach importance to the superficial at the expense of the essential."

Most of us focus too much on the Goal - not on the journeys to goals - which is where we spend our lives. We think things like "On a certain day, at a certain hour we will reach our goal." Once we reach our goal our dreams will come true, and the pieces of our lives will fit together like a completed jigsaw puzzle. How restlessly we pace the aisles, waiting for the destination. Some think things like "When I buy a new Car" "When I put the last kid through college." "When I have paid off the mortgage" "When I get a promotion." "When I reach the age of retirement." There is no place to arrive. The true joy of life is the trip. The destination is only a dream. It constantly outdistances us. Life must be lived as we go along.
