Craig, let me ask you a question. Would you rather have the rich get poorer or the poor get richer?

Garth Says:

" Will Leshner has an irrational desire for readers. The funny thing is, I'm reading everything in his feed, and he doesn't see a single hit from it.

What'd be lovely is an equivalent to the Hotlist, but that tells you how many people are subscribed to our feeds. Not everyone has the ~30 subscribers to make the top 100, and many people would be delighted to know they had even one subscriber.

Better yet, given that people can opt out of the data collection process for it, it'd be incredibly lovely to be able to enumerate the primary feeds of the Radio users subscribed to our feeds. That way we could subscribe to their feeds. Nifty!"

Garth and I are on the same page. Now that "Holy Shit! Terrorists!" button is done, and better referer tracking is on the way, this is exactly what I what I'm looking for.

By the way, Garth, sorry for hijacking your entire post!  9:54:24 PM  permalink   Add a comment All right, which one of you jokers is adding a google gateway to Radio?  9:46:57 PM  permalink   Add a comment

KTUU Channel 2 Magnitude 5.1 and 5.3 quakes shake Southcentral Alaska.

Ha! I knew they were bigger than 4.8! Looks like the Alaska Tsunami Warning Center upgraded the magnitude of the quakes. I'm not surprised. Earthquakes don't scare me, but this one was big enough to make me run for the door, and go to work with two left shoes.  5:44:53 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

Oops. That email bit wasn't supposed to post to my blog. Sorry!  5:35:14 PM  permalink   Add a comment   


That's an understatement. Turns out the quake was only a 4.8 but it was shallow, which is why it felt so strong. 17 miles deep, epicenter 10 miles from my house.

End result: I went to work with mismatched shoes. Don't ask...  12:03:17 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

Earthquake! That was a big one. With a bigger aftershock about a minute later. They don't know the magnitude yet, but I'd guess at least 5.5 - No damage according to the radio.  8:40:05 AM  permalink   Add a comment
