You can learn a lot looking through your server logs

Sometimes, I like to browse through my server logs to see who visits. In the sometimes disconnected world that is the internet, I’m not always sure who reads my stuff (in fact, I’m only sure about 1% of the time). The other 99% of the time, I only have a resolved IP address as evidence that someone dropped by to read my creative output. (And yes, I know when you visit, how many times you visit, and often I can narrow it down to a specific geographic location. Hahahawr!)

The logs over at the penguin site are quite revealing. It seems that Yeti Sports part 1 and it’s various hacks are quite popular amongst military personnel, college students and school children. Also, you people at Prudential, Travelers, Honeywell, Delta Airlines and the Government Printing Office need to get back to work! Along with the rest of you who send me your high scores from your work e-mails!

Witty aside: I’m watching Terence Trent D’Arby videos on VH1 Classic right now. Anyone remember him? He was like, Prince Lite. Or Lenny Kravitz, minus the half-Jewishness and Jimi Hendrix aspirations. I don’t think there’s any point to this paragraph.

I’m getting rid of the Take a look, it’s that clever little Flash app in the top-right hand corner that you all so conveniently ignore :-) Seeing as I have plenty of space and bandwidth (especially since my webhost doubled everyones plans), I’m just gonna start posting mp3’s. That, and I’d like to make this more of a music blog. At least one visitor seems to be quite chuffed that I introduced them to the Shaggs. Even if you don’t appreciate the Shaggs, you should at least be aware of their existence. And with that awareness, you should listen repeatedly to Philosophy of the World until it makes sense to you.

Another witty aside: I like the new Outkast video. But what’s up with Andre 3000’s fifties’ obsession? A prediction: Outkast will split, and Andre’s next project will be a doo wop album. It will either be hailed as a great work of visionary pop nostalgia, or it will bomb horribly.
