It’s always interesting to look at your web logs, to analyze the search terms, and to see what sorts of strange paths people have taken to find you.
Wondering just what is “lorem ipso dolor” and why you see it all over the web? What does “lorum ipsum dolor” actually mean? Think that it’s Latin? A secret code? Here’s the actual secret to lorem ipsom dolor!
Many people don’t realize that as computer animation has evolved, some of the movies that they watch are populated with “digital extras”, or ‘computer generated extras’ (sometimes also called ‘CGI extras’).

The AutoPen Explained – It Has a Long History, Obama is Just the Most Recent High Profile Person to Use One
If you heard that President Obama signed the bill extending the Patriot Act using an autopen while he was sitting in France and the bill for the extension of the Patriot Act was in Washington, D.C., you may be wondering “Just what is an autopen?” An auto pen is, quite literally, an auto pen – an automated pen (versus an automatic pen) that automatically replicates, in a remote location, the signature or other writing of the person who is holding it. Other versions can store the user’s signature, and so replicate it on demand (sort of a compromise between using a rubber stamp, and the person personally signing it); it was of the use of one of these signature-storing machine which President Obama authorized, as he was stuck in Europe at the G8 Summit, and the bill was set to expire last night.

Following the presidential debates this week, with the introduction of “Joe the Plumber” as a sort of everyman (or straw man, depending on to whom you listen), the Internet is abuzz with people searching to find information about Joe the Plumber – to understand just who is Joe the Plummer. Unfortunately (or fortunately, again depending on how you look at it), those searches are leading to several Joe the Plumbers who have real websites for their real plumbing companies, but who are not the Joe the Plumber for whom everyone is looking. That Joe the Plumber is Joe Wurzelbacher from Toledo, Ohio.
Ok, now we’ve has seen our share of tattoos, and obviously we have our share of computers. And some might even say that we are …gasp … geeks. But, geek tattoos?
Who the hell is Allan Corfield, why is he (or someone impersonating him) posting cryptic messages on Aunty’s site, and why are people searching for him in Google? And who, or what, is “sule”? Let me back up here. On June 3rd, 2005, I wrote an article about Shagster, a…
Ok, now Aunty can’t quite decide whether this is just too tacky for words, or a clever twist on the old bridal registry. This new website allows the wedding couple to register for their honeymoon, and lets wedding invitees help pay for the trip. From their press release: “With fairy-tale…
Most states in the United States have two legislative “houses”, a House of Representatives, and a Senate (although some states may call them something else). In many states the two houses are referred to as an “upper house” (the senate) and a “lower house”.
Ok, now Aunty has seen her share of tattoos, and obviously has her share of computers. And some might even say that your Aunty is a …gasp … geek. But, geek tattoos? Yes. Believe it. Because Aunty is going to share some of them with you. Remember, this is not…
