New Poll

The new poll asks which of my show flyers you like the best so far. The last poll (Best Futuristic Technology) was the most popular one yet, but I need to scold some of you on your choices. Two of you would rather have a Flying Car than Teleportation. Doesn’t this strike you as a little dumb? Hopefully you chose the flying car because you enjoy flying, but if you could teleport yourself around you could sort of simulate flying in an interesting way: teleport, fall, teleport higher, fall, etc. until you meet your destination. I was really hoping the Living Room’s website would win overall since I pleased myself with the joke (The Living Room is a music venue in Collingswood that has yet to step into the 90s and put up a website).

The Revised Terror Alert Rating System is still generating tons of traffic here after a good 6 days (970 reads!). People are passing around. Someone with an account over at must be using my graphic as an avatar or something because I’m getting server requests for it all the time. Right now it isn’t a problem because my bandwidth is still plentiful, but I’d like to find out exactly how it’s being used.

  1. Wouldn’t your logged referer info tell you something about who’s using the graphic?

  2. You would think. I have a bunch of requests from various sites, but when I load them up the image is nowhere to be found. The only thing I can think of is that it is used in some sort of hidden area I can’t see. I don’t know how livejournal works, but I’m thinking maybe when you’re logged in you see your own avatar on whatever page you’re browsing. This would cause the image to show up on all those sites, but just for you and not anyone else unless you posted something there. Trust me, I scoured tons of them to try to find where the image was and I came up empty except in the few cases where someone posted a link to the Revised Terror Alert article, and in that case it wasn’t a direct request for my terror alert graphic like the others.

    Here’s the latest example: – – [25/Feb/2003:06:16:06 -0800] “GET /albums/flyers/alert.jpg HTTP/1.1” 304 – “” “Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826”
