When the Internet Vultures Come To Roost... [Feb. 2nd, 2009|10:38 am]

Every so often when you have a website, you find out that the most popular URLs for the site are files you forgot you uploaded, or linked to, or...

This is particularly true of mp3 files, and the reason was a surprise to me, but it shouldn't have been. Sites like http://www.tagoo.ru use web crawlers to find audio and video files. And apparently they don't honor robots.txt files either.

So I resolve in this new year to replace those files on my site when I notice them being downloaded a lot with ridiculous replacements...

Health Update [Feb. 2nd, 2009|11:09 am]

Apparently I'll live. My elbow is still a little tender, but they took out the PIC line a couple weeks ago, and Ortho seems like they're done with me. I'm curious about the cost of the whole deal -- 5 days in the hospital, operation under general anaesthetic, IV antibiotics delivered to home, blood work all the time etc...

The diabetes thing is annoying but I need to get past that. I'm as compliant as I can be with the diet changes, and my sugars are still running a bit high, but I feel OK, and I'll talk to my GP about some sort of meds. I've been taking chromium twice a day, which my GP suggested, though it's effect on sugar metabolism is controversial. I'm going to try and lose a lot of weight -- according to my BMI my fighting weight should be 190, and I'm at about 265.

The losing weight and quitting smoking are in direct conflict; even a month out, I still crave cigarettes, and my tendency is to want to eat more as a result. I am far enough out that I can smell smoke on people, even very subtly -- if I get on an elevator that a smoker has been in, I can smell it.

I have some consolation in that my mother's family -- in which several of my relatives have Type II diabetes, are in general long-lived, and vigorous until quite late in life, even when their diet and exercise regime is worse than mine. So I got that going for me.

WTF Track Of The Day [Feb. 2nd, 2009|03:31 pm]

I'm trying to think what genre context this would fit into, and having a hard time guessing. What do you call a track with the Funky Drummer and Think Breaks, Reggaeton bassline, and stutter-stop vocals? It sounds like a Baltimore Breaks producer fell down and hit his head.
