- A largely under-the-radar rock band called Dramarama released a terrific album called “Vinyl” back in the early 1990’s. The album was just hooks galore, a mix of Stonesy riffs, chugging guitars and backbeats, dressed up nicely with lead singer John Easdale’s clever lyrics. One of the things I liked best about the album was that there were audio clips from various films or television shows between song on the album. They had their share of decent successes and I even got to interview Easdale back when I had time to interview people on this site and I snuck in a question about the audio clips. Anyway, one day last year I went online and found audio clips from some of my favorite movies and I now include them on my IPod, so when it’s on shuffle I get a movie clip about every 5-6 songs. Neat. You should try it. It makes for some good conversation pieces.
- It’s a good sign that you have a tiny bit more time when you’re able to plant a vegetable garden again. I had to take two years off from doing it, but this year I was able to do it for real again. Three tomato plants, four basil plants and an eggplant are now in the ground at the house and I may still do a couple more herbs if I can find room for ’em. Hopefully these plus the local Maynard farmers market will keep us eating locally through the start of winter and beyond.
- Knowing that the Carolina Hurricanes were swept by Pittsburgh is a real kick in the gut. It proves out that the Bruins were the better team, but just not that week they played Carolina. Oh, what could have been. It must really hurt to be a Bruin right about now, knowing they missed out on a huge opportunity to really move the needle this season. I couldn’t watch any of that Carolina-Pittsburgh series without getting a sinking feeling in my stomach about that Bruins loss.
- I was reading Inc. Magazine on the plane ride home from NYC yesterday and came across this article. Even if you don’t care at all about business on the internet, the story is a must read. It simply defies logic. Or does it? Really makes you think and it’s a terribly interesting and fun story. Not convinced? It’s about a guy who works basically one hour a day and pulls in $10 million bucks a year. Does that make you interested enough to click the link? Aside from that, Inc Magazine also claims that the average employee sends 38 emails per day. If I had to guess, I’d say I send somewhere between 60-80 work related emails per day.
- Finally today, every now and again I take a look at my traffic logs for this site. In case you’ve ever wondered, the site, on average, gets 70-120 pageviews each day. Using 100 daily pageviews as the rough middle point, that would be about 3000 pageviews per month. It used to be that direct traffic (when people type rustedrobot.com directly) and Google were the top two sources of traffic, by far. It has been that way for a long long time. But in the last year, there’s been quite a seachange. LinkedIn and especially Facebook have almost caught up with Google as a traffic referrer here and I’ve seen similar instances in articles and heard the same thing from various SEO/SEM firms. I wonder how Google’s feeling about that? I am sure we’ll see their reaction soon enough.
