  • The Corporate Bulls*** Generator.  Sadly, I suspect that quotes were not computer generated but actually copied down in meetings by real people.  ;-)
  • Here’s my  marketing idea of the week:  For every 50th? 100th? 1000th? download of your product’s trial version, give that person a free license.  It would only cost you the opportunity cost of a free license, and would certainly garner some interest in your trial.  I don’t know – maybe it’s crazy – an idea worth what you paid for it.  ;-) I guess you’d have to defend against bots some how, but an interesting idea in theory.
  • By the way, my last post probably should have been titled “Getting the Internet into Another Room” or “Getting a Switch….”.  I didn’t really need to get a new router in there.  And it continues to work marvelously.  I heartily recommend the solution.
  • Hey, I thought I did a pretty good job here on my personal website, but this guy….. wow, very cool. And the Minesweeper game actually works. 
  • Nick’s Advice for the Week: Never ask a barber if you need a haircut.  Actually, my wife said this one – I have to give credit where credit is due.
  • Geeky Post of the Week: I thought this was a very interesting post:  How Not To Sort By Average Rating.  I particularly enjoyed the “Sites that make this mistake” part.  ;-)
  • Controversial Item of the Weekprivate is the new goto.
