The Red Sox won again Sunday; they’re one victory away from a sweep of the AL West-leading Mariners!
Becky — whose first day of grad-school classes is tomorrow — bought a digital camera today! It’s a Canon PowerShot A60, identical to mine. (Copy cat! :) Unfortunately, it’s defective (the darn thing doesn’t power up), so she’s exchanging it for a new one via some sort of overnight-replacement program through Canon. Anyway, hopefully she’ll soon be able to post pictures of her new kittens, and other interesting stuff from her life, to the SHA girl blog!
Mars, in case you hadn’t heard, is nearing its closest approach to Earth in 60,000 years. (Well, I suppose Earth and Mars nearing each other, really.) Wednesday is the big day, and I think perhaps I’ll go here, weather permitting, to check it out.
I’ve been re-reading the fifth Harry Potter book. About to start Chapter 36: The Only One He Ever Feared. Coolest illustration ever. :)
Well, it’s been a week since InstaBoost IV — my fourth-ever link from Glenn Reynolds’s InstaPundit. In terms of its immediate impact, his link last Sunday to my blackout coverage was my most lackluster InstaBoost ever: I got only 781 hits in the 48 hours after the link appeared, instead of the usual thousands. (I believe this is because it was an “update” to an old post rather than a new post of its own, and also because it came on a weekend, when Glenn’s traffic is always down.)
But that was just the immediate impact. InstaBoost IV also did something else: its longer-term “domino effect” has produced the most prolonged traffic surge in BrendanLoy.com history — much less dramatic at first than InstaBoost III earlier this month, but much more long-lasting.
