How to find the stuff I talk about...

If you ever have trouble finding something I talk about - this blog is set up so that if you click the title of a post, it will take you to the page I'm talking about.

This post for instance, will take you to the marketplace - the page changes at least monthly and gives a good overview of anything you might want to check on. All items I talk about are on at least one of the pages there.

Hotmail & MSN Down?????

Well, MSN and Hotmail seem to be down this morning. I won't be able to get to my email to counsel until they resolve the problem. I've tried from two (2) browsers, so the cookies aren't the problem.

If you submitted a contact form, give it a little extra time. Sorry about this, out of my control....

Voting Concluded

Well, voting is concluded. Interesting results, and here they are:

By sheer clicks, Katie won by a landslide. By IP address, or individual computer address, Rohan won but not by a landslide.

There were several people who came by and voted more than once, for more than one kitty. That's to be expected.

So, since I didn't say that it would be by IP address or sheer clicks or any other criteria, what I've decided to do is to split the winnings between Katie and Rohan. This might seem unfair, but I don't know what else to do. I've asked for help, and no one has stepped forward with an opinion.

So, if you are either Katie's or Rohan's owner, please send me your mailing address by the same way you entered the contest (remember how you did it?) and I'll confirm by email. You will get a bank certified check/money order for your winnings.

Help Needed - Voting Results :)

I've been analysing the results from the pretty kitty contest. It seems that some of my visitors have pretty good programming skills, or they paid someone to click a certain button - or perhaps its just a glitch someplace.

However, on analysing the results, it seems that Rohan is the actual winner by IP addresses. By sheer number of clicks, it's Katie.

By IP address, the results are: Rohan #1, Rebecca #2
By sheer clicks, the results are: Katie #1, Rohan #2

Several folks clicked their kitty more than once, which is to be expected. Several of the IP addresses picked more than one kitty, coming back for the second click. However, there were over 900 clicks and only 181 visitors. That told me the results were terribly skewed. The strange results are in 10-second increments, so I know something isn't right.

Now, my dilemma is: Who is the winner???? Should I go by clicks or by IP address?

Post your opinion and I'll keep a tally, voting on this issue closes at midnight EDT, 7/11/2007. In this case, IP address and identity count, so only vote once - give your reasoning - I need the help.

Happy 4th!

I hope you are all having a wonderful 4th of July holiday.

Remember to keep your pets safe from harm - away from that enticing smell coming off the BBQ and please don't tie a firecracker to your cats' tail! As a matter of fact, please don't play with fireworks of any kind - go to a professionally put on show of fireworks this evening, instead. Keep yourself and your pets safe.

Eat some watermelon (if you like it) and have some BBQ for me. I had to stop eating meat because of a tummy upset.
