Random Internet Discovery of the Week

Now this is why I was optimistic about the changes in StumbleUpon getting me better RIDs! I think this is the second time in RID history I’ve been delivered to something I was already familiar with. This version is more current, but if only the poses weren’t so generic…

Okay, this is a little creepy. Are you absolutely desperate to talk to a real person, you absolutely can’t stand going through automated menus, even if it means having to talk in Spanish? This list is for you! If there are people so desperate that this list is useful to them, it makes me wonder […]

In what may be my last (real) post before the reboot, I bring you… South Park.

Random Internet Discovery of the Week

I’m late on this RID and I didn’t get any votes on the Da Blog Poll anyway, so I’m extending the poll another week. Here are the topics I’m currently subscribed to, and which I would tentatively remain subscribed to if the poll decides I should pick the topics myself (I don’t know what a […]

I’m linking to this even though I’m not sure how useful it would be (I use an Excel spreadsheet as a “checkbook” of sorts) and I’m announcing right now that this will be the last RID under the status quo. That sort of violates the Da Blog Poll, on which the only vote I received […]

It’d be nice if this told you what it is before throwing you into it. The current RID poll is likely to end on Monday regardless of when it says it’s going to end, simply because the changes that will happen to Da Blog then are too major.

The world’s largest Linux ad! I may have to cut the poll short at the end of the week, and I have to say, I’m dreading the only vote I’ve gotten so far potentially being the only vote.

Random Internet Discovery of the Week

Experimenting with doing this from Friendbar’s “lucky site” button. As I’ll explain in a post later today, I might not keep it up even if it works. And because it’s “a site that is popular today” I’ll be late to the party instead of “discovering” anything. Is the story in the headline – Google Analytics’ […]
