Busy day again today, but at least everything is running smoothly.

WordPress.com has been down pretty much all day, so i havent been able to post anything so its all squeezed into this one big post. Hope wordpress sorts out its relatbility issues soon.

I have a piece of coursework in on wednesday and one in on Friday. So im working on those at the mo, i’ve also got a meeting later with my tutor about my project, and then i will hopefully get the microcontroller board to program. Should be a little video coming soon of the LEDs flashing.

I’m also going to start up a little side project tonight with Ruby on Rails, more details coming tonight :P

If you hadnt already heard, i won the lottery on Blogmad, 26597 credits!! I wont need to surf for quite a while now!

Links
Lauren has signed herself up a DeviantART Account here, and she doesn’t know it yet but i’m going to buy her a subscription to it so she can enjoy it more and show off her art to the world.

I’ve you have a bit of money to invest in your website and cant wait for google anayltics then check out Mint, they provide a very nice stats service for $30 per site.

This post grinds my gears a bit, its quite obviously about nerds not geeks!! Its a good post tho, just needs the word geek changing to nerd.

Jens has a side project band which he just set up a myspace for, funny stuff, i’m hoping he will do an artic monkeys cover soon!

Did you know that the left boob is usually larger!! [Evatt]

And if you could Work out the title of this blog go here.

Logo Competition
I’ve had a couple more entries for the logo competition. On thursday i will be announcing the Grand Geek Prize for the competition which should hopefully draw a few more entries. I still dont want to give it away tho, anyway below are the two new entries for today from neff and mike:

Also please remember that the logo for printing on a Black, Red or Blue T-shirt, so make sure its nice and big and will stand out against one of those colours.

  1. I’m using these guys for stats, it’s free, no ads, unbelievable data: http://www.statcounter.com

    free account only has a 100-visitor queue for the detailed data, but page visits, etc are unlimited. I’m going to do a post at The Technocrat on them soon with a compar-o to WordPress stats. (also free, obviously)

  2. It’s funny the different connotations of “nerd,” “geek,” etc. It seems that you find “nerd” to be the more complimentary term–I find it to be the other way around. I suppose that would have a lot to do with where we’re located–being on different continents might lend itself to slightly different connotations ;)

  4. Oh I noticed last night that you won the lotto… feel free to share with your favourite reader *cough me cough*
    Anyway, I have Mint and it is worth getting. I find it fun to see where everyone lives using the Geomint pepper. Gd times :P
    I stillhaven’t got a logo design yet. I may have time to get one done by closing, we will see :D
    P.S why is the title blog? Post isn’t much to do with your blog, but I suppose I am just being picky.

  5. I use Stats counter for atariboy.co.uk and updc.co.uk, they are very good.

    And i just felt like putting a bit of binary in my blog :)

  9. Hey there. Just want to mention that where I’m from (New York City) almost nobody says “nerd” unless they are trying to be intentionally mean. Maybe it’s a geographic thing.

    But would be delighted to learn about the presumed differences.

    Cheers,

  13. er crazy, if im not mistake they are completely interchangable hex – binary – decimal its all the same difference!

    March 13, 2006 at 11:46 pm

  14. Oh yeah, the link… I was thinking qwerty but using dvorak, so replace the ‘z’ with a ‘-‘ and it’ll work.

  17. I have Analytics… but would still really like Mint. If only I had the money :P

    Statcounter, while nice ( use it for real-time stats… analytics lags a bit) lacks due to it’s limit of the 100 most recent visitors.

  18. Gimme some. Now!

  19. Yea but binary is actually easy to translate, whereas hex required thought, and I would have probably done it manually, or got bored half way through, if you did not provide a transltion link.
    give you some what?thousand? sorry I am poor
