Observations on Stats

I’ve noticed a few things about the numbers of readers my blog gets:

If I write a post and tag it with technology, theres a spike.

If I don’t post until the evening, there’s a drop.

If I don’t post for a few days, no one seems to care.

Meh, I might post something more interesting later on today

More RSS Feeds

I just finished mowing the lawn and now I’m relaxing with a cold beer. On Saturdays you can start drinking before noon. Its not wrong.

I’ve been having a lot of fun with Facebook mobile. Constantly updating my status has become like a low budget blog. Which gives me a great idea.

Look to the right….. see that new RSS feed? That’s my current Facebook status. Cool eh?

Ideas That Wouldn’t Work

So with the advent of Facebook mobile, Twitter and even Gmail on your mobile phone. I started thinking how awesome it would be if all these sites were rolled into one. You’d sign in to a service that collects all the information from every social networking site or email client you belong to. Then when any thing of importance, messages, emails, etc. would be sent via SMS to your mobile.

Then I realized this was probably almost useless. I know all these sites already use SMS. I just wanted a way to aggregate them all together.

Nothing to Interesting Here…

This is a post I wrote yesterday but for some reason it wouldn’t post, I’ll have new stuff up later today

I’m currently listening to Michael Buble – Home. Don’t tell anyone though, but its actually a great song.


Last night I went out to dinner with Mike, Kate and Joel. Hit up Jambalya. None of us had ever been there and its actually a really great place. Awesome atmosphere and the food was delicious. And as a student bonus, not to expensive.

After dinner Joel, Eddie and I saw Disturbia. I’m still not quite sure what to make of it. It was quite a good movie but there were a few points where I was confused as to what was going on. I would reccomend it though, good entertainment.


Second Geek Dinner tonight, 7:30 at Molly Blooms.


Wow, its been a crazy last couple of days for me. Which is why I haven’t been able to post anything. I’ll give you a run down of whats been going on.

Friday April 27th: I had my last exam on 4th year. It went amazing well, mostly because the prof cut 3/4 of what he said was going to be on it. So in the end I studied more then I had to but know everything. After the exam we went to the Spoke for some post exam drinks. Only at a campus bar does it fill up before 11:30. Ran into some other people from fourth year bio and we chatted for a while. After that it was down to the east side for Mary Brown’s chicken and taters with Derek and Aaron Ross. Good to catch up with the boys before the summer. Finally Joel, Eddie and I drove up to Toronto for a Jays game at the Rogers Centre. Joel was amazed that we’d never been there. Ed and I don’t really like baseball so thats the only reason we went. It was a fun time though again lots of time to catch up on the drive.

Saturday April 28th: Went and bought some boots from Mark’s Work-Warehouse. I needed them for tree planting this summer so I wanted to get some and break them in. In the afternoon we watched the home opener of Toronto FC. It was great to see some homegrown football. The crowd was amazing, standing the whole game and chanting away. We decided to see as many games as we can. Maybe even hit up an away game. Saturday night had a pint with Kate and Mike.

Sunday April 29th: Relaxing

Monday April 30th: This was interesting. I spent the day working with Eddie and Aaron on their framing crew. It was actually quite a bit of fun. The day went by quickly which was good. I might try to see if I can do a few more shifts with them before we leave

So, see what I was saying? I didn’t really have time to write.

There she goes….

So I had a great idea for a post, and I said to myself that I would write it down later this evening when I had more time. Then I started thinking about it again and I couldn’t remember any of it. So instead of a great new post, full of interesting insights, you get this boring explaination.

I bought a mac keyboard on ebay several weeks ago and if finally got delivered. It was the dirtiest most disjusting thing I had ever seen. If I was every selling my keyboard I would at least clean it up. But it only costs me 6 bucks so I had better not complain (New they’re worth 40)

Just for the sake of writing

I don’t have much to say, but I just want to get something down on the screen. (Oh, new media terms, why don’t you have the same romantic feel as old-school ones)

Tonight is the geek dinner at Molly Bloom’s. So I guess if you’re reading this and its still April 4th, and you have an interest in blogs, podcasting etc then stop on by this evening. We’re meeting at 7:30.

In the school vein, I’ve got two major papers I still need to write. One of them is started, the other I still haven’t finished the book. I’m hoping I can use some of the same material for both of them. Thankfully profs don’t swap essays around.
