Cat Post 3: Bedless in Atlanta Airport Overnight.

At 11:40 am I boarded a flight from San Jose to Atlanta. When we reached Atlanta, they were covered with a storm. We ended up flying in circles a lot, and once landed in Huntsville for several hours to… [Read More…]

Cat Post 2: Giving Back to San Francisco. Giving Food to Homeless.

My plane was leaving on Friday morning from San Jose to Albany New York, and it looked like I’d have time Thursday to go to San Francisco for a trip. I had felt only slightly "robbed" of missing Kings Canyon (at least that’s how I justified a second "side trip" in my mind) and the Haight-Ashbury district seemed to be calling me. It’s been probably 3 years since I’ve been there, and… [Read More…]

Cat Post 1: Panhandling in California to get back to SES.

I’m trying to play catch-up this week after being out last week to San Jose SES. Monday went down for almost 30 hours…I’m dreading all the lost emails that bounced back….but that’s another rant post not for now….I’ve also got a bunch of pictures from last week that I still have to publish (another post), and I’ve got shaky camera video of Matt and Graywolf from the "Are Paid… [Read More…]

Domain Roundtable Conference in Seattle Aug 12-15,2007.

A few weeks ago Chuck (my COO) and I were fishing out back with Stuntdubl until the wee hours of the morning while downing a few drinks, and one of the things that was brought up was the Domain Roundtable Conference that’s in Seattle on Aug 12-15th (official info here). Todd had also blogged about this conference. I think he’s hoping to make it…but last I knew he wasn’t positive…. I… [Read More…]

Non SEO: Back to the Future – Jim’s trip to the past, to future Delorean.

Back in December I noted that I had been seeking a Delorean. I’ve actually been looking at them on ebay for over 2 years now. I own a bunch of model Delorean’s, and a handful are floating around the office here…it’s always been "one day… day…." (I’ll get one). I guess it’s never been the right car, or the right time…that is untill a few days ago.  The car was… [Read More…]

How to Find if a Page is in Google’s Secret Supplemental Results.

A method to find if a page is in Google’s New Secret Supplemental Results. After reading Danny’s post today on "Google Dumping The Supplemental Results Label." I thought I’d write on how I’ll analyze a page to see if it might be in the Supplemental Results…even if Google won’t tell me outright that a page is in the Supplemental Results Index, I can still get a pretty good guess if… [Read More…]
