Driveway

Why does everyone think my driveway is public parking. It didn't even make a difference when the sign was up

Long Day

I had one of the longest days ever. It was one of those days with like 10,000 unrelated things that all wanted all of my attention. I never ate lunch planning to try and get out a little early. Instead I made it home around midnight.

At one point I needed to get onto a server to fix the issue and the monitor to the KVM stopped working after it the screen wavered and twitched a bit. It was like the server version of a Simpsons Halloween special.

The Buffalo Historical Society

On our tour of the park we spent some time at the historical building playing on the building. (e:terry) is great at scaling stuff. I am not so good, I think it is time to hit the gym again.

He lifted himself up the walking ramp across the thruway.

Buffalo Psychiatric Center

Everytime I visit this building I get freaked out imagining people being dragged inside against their will.

Totally unrelated I love oak trees. We have two baby ones out front but I would love to have a house with one like the one in these photos in the yard.

Bully Sticks?

According to (e:Chris) these are bull penises that dogs eat. I never had a dog so I'm not so sure what is normal dog food.

My question is who invented this? Imagine the discussion, "Dude, you know that pile of bull penises we have out back. I bet we could sell them for like $3.00 each as dog treats."

Work party on estrip

Some of my coworkers must have had so much freetime today. According to google analytics and some later verification in my web logs I found a huge spike in work->estrip traffic today during prime work hours that consisted of several hours of total visitation time and 500+ of my blogs being rendered for work IPs in 27 distinct visits lasting an average of 8 minutes each.

It really stuck out because usually there is so little traffic from work. A few here and there from site members like (e:fing), (e:tinypliny) and myself checking in and checking messages. The last time it was high was back on April 21st when I posted this snapshot of a whiteboard I saw where someone drew a pictograph of consultant waste (e:paul,51434). By the way, that someone was not me and I have no idea who it was. I do however concur and so does my union.

I assume the visitors were people from my department because only 40% of the visits were from IE and pretty much everyone outside of my dept has no choice but to use IE 7. That and the higher resolution of the monitors makes it seem likely.

Here is a breakdown of browser visits from work->estrip visits. The A-T column stands for average time and yes that is in minutes.

Assuming its people from my department, and that the average worker in my dept makes about $30/hr, that seems kind of expensive for NY tax payers to foot the bill for. You can verify salaries at http://seethroughny.org/

I see two possibilities for today's spike.
1. I am spontaneously interesting and everyone simultaneously decided to search for me on google and read my blog today.

Lets be honest - probably not the case. Then again, it did start this morning with work->estrip visits to (e:paul,39689) which are the journals I wrote when I was a 10 year computer dork in 1987 and they are pretty hilarious

2. Someone found something curious and then started gossiping about it to other people.

This seems more likely and it is supported by the fact that so many of the visits are to a work related blog about etime (e:paul,52862) and that they happen in the same few minutes ::READ PDF:: which screams email blast before the surfing to other posts began.

Its one of two things:
a. Coworkers also thought the code was an interesting look into browser OS and diversity back in 2001 and wanted to share it with each other.

b. Coworkers couldn't understand the code I posted thought it was some proprietary etime code I "leaked to the internet" when ironically it is totally open source code from netscape circa 2001 and is clearly marked as Permission granted to reuse and distribute. Sadly, I think this is much more likely the case.

The whole point of the post was to show how outdated the browser detection libraries that software used were and how the diversity of browsers and OSes was so much greater back in 2001. The code is a public clientside javascript that just detects the version of browser you are using. There is even a public link on that blog post to the same code online at another facility. Even more ironic is the fact that although it is included in etime, they don't even use it.

And then...
What happend after that, well an work day full of people wasting time reading my totally non work related blog posts during work hours. I barely even visit my own blog during work because I think it is a time waste. Visiting someone else's non-work related blog on company time strikes me as criminal waste of tax payer money. I hope whoever started it feels guilty about what it turned into.

I think that NY taxpayers should start to demand more transparency in web visitation of state workers during work hours. I would love to see just how much time is spend with state workers surfing facebook, twitter, youtube, etc. It must be a huge drain on both productivity and bandwidth.
