The Internet Tops Nashville

Monday, April 30th, 2012

For the last two years, there has been a woman with a GMail address very similar to mine who struggles greatly at writing it down correctly.   Because of this, I have received everything from Happy Birthday messages to a newsletter for a senior citizen community in Florida.  For a while, I was receiving emails regarding quotes/estimates for how much it was to ship a car from Balitmore to Denver.

So I today received an email:

Thank you for ordering Cabela’s Inc. – 00210942816 (>CBGL514187<)

Inside, it said:

Thank you for your recent order. We appreciate your shopping at Cabelas.com and hope that you had an enjoyable shopping experience. You will receive another e-mail at the time your order ships.

I had never heard of Cabelas.com…so what did “I” buy? Click and find out.

Two Nashville sightings…

  1. Go to the library.  There is a pickup truck on display in the lobby.
  2. Go to National Tire and Battery for an oil change.  Another customer demands to keep his old tires, as they work well to help burn his brush.

Amazon the Adviser

Sat down to do data work…but first visited Amazon.com….and these are the book recommendations I got.

To blow them up some…

Well…thats not encouraging….Why is it stupid?

Okay. I have to do some other things…

Got it…Write a lot…But I am really slow at doing that.

12 weeks? No way I can do that! What’s wrong with me?!

…I guess I should get back to that data work.

[EDIT] Quick Update!

Okay…Still not doing data work. But, it is pretty cool to use Google Analytics to see web traffic.

The above map are my visitors (all 4) in the minute after I posted to Facebook. Who is out there in Princeton? And is it Lindsey or Rich out in Denver?

For reference, here yesterday’s Billikens.com map…from Australia
