[15:59] <Me> There is about as much point as making that page able to loop for 158 yrs as there is for me having that page up (=

This is sad

This is truely a sad thing about the Internet:  http://www.six-something.org/project-britney-search/

The opening paragraph reads:

Who is responsible for the top 97.23% of all internet searches? That’s right, horny males looking for pictures of Britney Spears. I used her name once about seven months ago on this site and I still get hits from it from people looking for such things as free Britney Spear’s game to download and Britney Spear weight loss. Well, if one usage of her name can bring so much happiness I decided to capitalize on the Britney Search phenomenon with Project Britney Search, aka ‘Project BS’. Here I will create an überlist of Britney Spears search terms to see just how many hits I can get by exploiting the wants of horny young men worldwide.

And then the page goes on to list a bunch of different search phrases for Britney Spears thats highly unlikely, but on this page he lists the results:  http://www.jaguarpc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10390&highlight=amazon&page=2

Single day record was 2259 unique visitors, but that was just by some popular site linking to it because of the cenpect.

Typically it averages me 20-40 hits a day, not many of which stay around.

Something that pisses me off

Welcome to my blog,

Things like this piss me off:
“Batavia parents to shell out for back-to-school”

To sum it up, the school district shelled out thousands of dollars to upgrade to Office 2007 and rather then making a couple changes on their domain policies so that Office 2007 saves files in a format compatible with Office 2000/XP/2003.

Or better yet, move to Star Office which is free for educational institutions and is almost as good as Office for about $500/computer less.

Then the parents could get OpenOffice which is free (Star Office if they want to pay for support).

There are VERY few things MS Office can do that OpenOffice/StarOffice can’t do that. None of which I believe a school would be teaching their students to do.

What I can’t believe is in public schools, there are some parents who can barely make ends meet and the school district is asking the parents to spend almost $100 on one thing for school that ISN’T needed and in a few years, they’ll be asking the parents to upgrade again.
