Google Page Rank

Got us back to Page Rank 6 mid-last week.

Tried a few more little tweaks today, hopefully they’ll get us moving onto PR7 in the next few weeks.

Unless of course they continue tweaking their algorithms.

That’s something guaranteed to give you a perpetual headache, trying to figure out what Google’s doing whilst they try and stop everyone else doing what they’re doing.

More Saturday Confusion…

Was planning of settling down in front of an open fire and watching the St Kilda v Geelong game tonight.

What……are you sure….but I thought……hmmmm…………………?!

It’s tomorrow.

(See what I mean)

Oh, and the Vals dead. It died on H whilst she was running around doing stuff for M.

Can’t seem to get the weekend stuff right….

Can’t seem to get this one right.

I’m on-call on Saturdays and off on Sundays. Sounds simple, right.

Then how come I can’t get into it on Saturday. Spend time having coffee…reading the papers…doing a fry up for breakfast (or if I’m really lucky, getting hot dogs and doughnuts from Vic Market)…doing the big 5-grid Soduku in the Age Magazine. Sometimes even get to check my emails once or twice. Won’t action any of them unless they’re mega-urgent, but will at least check to see.

Then on Sunday, I spend time doing what should have been done on Saturday!!

And NO!!!! I don’t like working weekends and am definitely NOT a workaholic (not by my definition anyway, see below). But when things are so flat-out you sometimes do things you would rather not.

Come to think of it, maybe that’s why I can’t get going on Saturday’s…..just too worn out from the week.

By my personal definition…workaholic (n) –

a) someone who works when there is no reason to, or,

b) someone who works because that is all that matters to them, or that work is the most important thing in their life

Thoughts on MJ

Hmmmmm. Michael Jackson has been relegated to pages 14-15 in the Herald Sun today.

Could it be that we’re now going to ‘leave him alone’ as per his song/request a few years back?

Are we grown up enough to do that?

Hopefully……but I wouldn’t bet on it.

My feelings about him is that he was a total freak of nature, from a talent perspective.

Couldn’t care less about his private life. From what I’ve read I¬†wouldn’t have wanted his private life anyway.

That’s all I have to say on that subject (unless of course I think of something else).

From the sublime to………

Damn!!!! Got caught up at work and missed the post EOFYS sales.

Didn’t even get to see the stock footage the networks use to show people waiting outside Myer at 6:00am and the staff opening the doors whilst trying to avoid being trampled.

But then again, I haven’t really put in enough miles to successfully bowl over little old ladies and kids in order to be the first one to touch the shiny new internet fridge. Cos once you touch it, it’s yours for next to nothing.

Just out of curiosity…….who the HELL wrote that crappy Foxtel EOFYS song?

Hello World ;-)

This is me.

Tried to avoid having ANY footprint on the net for many years. Worked hard at it too.

Then all of a sudden….POW…I have 2 entries when I search for my name.

Bummer :-(

So, what to do………..what to do……….(another cup of coffee)…….

Stuff it, let’s see if it’s all that it’s cracked up to be.
