During some hard core site update time, I actually read through the stuff on some of the pages after ages. I realized one page in particular, about me had the worst title in the world. It’s not about me in any sense of anything. Then thought about it a bit, and realized how hard it is to really put it down in words. This is a rough draft start. This, obviously, won’t be replacing that material any time soon, but should work its way in somewhere, eventually.

I’d like comments and so on. (I seriously doubt the usefulness of even begging for comments. I mean, come on people, I know you read it. The funky site counter goes up like a 150 every two days.)

    This kinda post is really tough to comment on.. Really dont have much to say, except, yes most of that stuff is right. But it would be, since you said it.

    And the counter, well.. refreshes, especially from umich.edu shouldn’t increase the hits ! ;)

    That’s the thing that bothers me, I can’t get the domain split up from sf for the hits. Atleast for the rest of the site I know I account for pretty much 30% of everything.

    I just extrapolated the same thing here.

    I also have got to switch to holoscan so people need to check in at regular intervals to be a) able to comment b) make sure their comments aren’t lost.

    :)
