Rude! Rude! Rude! In the library -- between conference sessions -- this dork sitting next to me at one of the computers took three four cell phone calls. Could you at least silence the ringer? And, oh yeah, ever heard of the concept of lowering-your-voice?

Totally self-centered, which would explain the inconsideration of others, and chewed like a cow, I might add. He chomped on an entire Baggie™ full of potato chips with his mouth open.

One of the things I don't like about LiveJournal is that I have no way of knowing how many people read my blog.

I've tried putting one of those page counters in before, but it has some problems:
  • I have to put it on every blog entry, which gets old,
  • I've not been able to find one that doesn't come with an "ad" embedded in it,
  • It doesn't at all give me a feel for how many people are accessing my blog, just the number of times it is accessed, and
  • I access my own pages so many times to edit, it's ridiculous, not to mention skewing the page visit count exponentially.
To this end, I have already put into use what I learned in my 11:00 session to create a survey! Yay for application of learning!

I would be very, very grateful if you'd take this less-than-three-minute (I hope) survey! I'm going to run it for the next week in my blog, so if you can't get to it this moment, and visit again in the next week, please take it then.
