Random Google Referals

I don't know what I did, but this morning I got 9 random referals from blogspot blogs. This is highly unusual, as I usually generally get only 3-4 visits a day. Maybe it's because I talk about Google a lot.

Speaking of which, I had a very interesting experience with Picasa last week. For those of you who don't know, Picasa is an image management program that is owned by Google. I've been trying to convince my boss to use it instead of trying to get me to write him a photo-database. The office has a huge archive of work-related photos, circa 3.3 GB worth, and Picasa chewed through them in around 5 minutes. Personally, I think it's a brilliant program, and it seems like the perfect solution. However, when you first install it, the default setup is to scan for all images in typical directories. Now, because the only computer in the office that has a DVD burner is not mine - in the sense that I don't generally use it - I ended up having to click quite fast to save my skin. That's right folks, and here I'm taking a page from Ivan's book: hardcore porn. Well, not quite 'hardcore porn', but I thought I'd just mention that. It was in any case not office-friendly.

To be fair, the co-worker to whom the images belonged to had the images stored on his network drive, and it was only because he never logs off the DVD machine that this happened. That is to say, it was because he let me use his login that I accidently found out. So let this be a lesson people: If you're going to store smut at work, don't give other people your password.

Ah! I just realised that the title of this post also has Google in it. It must look like I'm fishing for referals, but I assure you, I'm not; That's why 'hardcore porn' isn't in the title. *Whistles innocently*
