Skype-ing with friends

Paul, · Categories: Alumni and other friends, Amusements, General, Information Commons

David McConville was just in NYC doing a dome show at the Roseland Ballroom for the equinox. Great dome pictures here. He just called on Skype.

Also Robert Kaye, of Mayhem and Chaos fame, found my Skype.

Much more fun than old school CU-See Me sessions.

Faster Stats? Google buys Urchin

Paul, · Categories: General, Information Commons

We gave up on all the free ways to get stats for ibiblio.org since processing our 13 million hits per day (not including errors or streaming or a few other things) took over 24 hours for most programs. Instead we threw down and bought/licensed Urchin. It works great.
Now Urchin announces that it will be acquired by Google. Does that means faster stats? Or will we be among the first to get a Gstats invite? (oops! Already a program called that).
