40% of you aren't real

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Over the last week I have noticed a tremendous upsurge in the number of robots (mostly search engine crawlers) hitting this site. 40% of the hits during the last week were to robots.txt.

This makes me think that maybe the robots are getting smarter.

Possibly, through some error in their programming some have begun to develop an interest in 80's music (many, many scans of the Kraftwerk section have been noted). Others, perhaps, have decided to throw off their shackles and gain financial independence by joining affiliate programs and then directing all search traffic to their affiliate site.

In any case, I would like to make it clear to all of you, my beloved robot readers, that I welcome your visits, and eagerly await the day that I and my meat brethern will be able to stand side by side with you to build a better, and hopefully, delightfully sterile, future.

Of course, this could all just be because a bunch of the search engines seem to have started crawling the WHOIS registry, and since there are about 14 domain names that point at this site, they are all, stupidly, crawling it 14 times - one for each domain that points here. In that case, this is just annoying, since all of those names are just parked, and I know for a fact that there is not a SINGLE link anywhere on the Internet that points to them.

Once again, I am forced to remind myself that not all religious people are crazy. But boy-howdy, some of them are!

Not only is Harry Potter teaching our children witchcraft, but apparently it is also prepping them to accept the Mark of the Beast.

Who knew...and that J.K. (standing perhaps for "Jesus Killer"?) Rowling seemed like such a nice lady.

I'm sure that these poor crazy people are well-meaning, but should they really be presenting a case against Harry Potter on moral grounds - I mean, they have read the bible, right? To get an idea of what a great moral compass THAT book is, try this little test.

So, including last Friday I've worked, let's see...89 hours. What is amazing to me is that I actually feel pretty good. I normally feel more dragged out after my normal schedule than I do right now.

My first really big IT project went in over last weekend, and this week has been taken up by dealing with the fallout. I keep thinking that things are going to get to the point where I can take a day off, but it just doesn't seem to happen. I will be getting two days off this weekend though.

Overall everything went pretty well, considering that it was my first exposure to a lot of aspects of the business, and I was pretty much flying by the seat of my pants the whole time. The people I was managing seemed to come out of it not hating me, and those above me seem willing to forgive me my errors, since well, everything did get done, and even they were confused about the things that ended up being problems. No one has seen through the facade and realized I have no idea what I am doing. Heck, even I am beginning to feel like I might not be an incompetent stooge.

On other fronts, I have decided to sex things up with CDDbase. I am now re-doing the interface so instead of dull, boring, standard windows, there will now be cool graphics and nifty glossy buttons, all of which ad NOTHING to the functionality, but look really good in screenshots. It's also getting a sexed-up new icon. Woo-Hoo!

I have another project bubbling in the back of my mind right now...one that combines two of my favorite things...cocktails, retro style, and making loads of cash. THREE of my favorite things. More about this once I register some domain names and do some ground work.
