Slowly bringing over all the scripts I had up on the old server. I have put up the I++ Ching 404 Page, as well as the long-awaited new appointment sign-ups. I should be able to finish off my backlog of emails by tomorrow morning. Hooray!
On the down-side, it turns out Slashdot has changed the way they display personal histories, making a couple of projects I’ve been working on a lot harder to complete :(. Ah, well; just means more crawling of the site.
I promised Julia that I would think about her sampling problem. She wants to use MSN’s web directory. Despite all of its problems, they do claim (with Media Metrix’s backing) to be the most popular search service–though I am curious as to how much of this traffic is driven by those who do not change the default home page. A better bet would be to just take random pages from Google, but since she needs a sample from several countries, we’d have to find the hosting location for each page as well, and would end up rejecting the vast majority of pages identified. Anyway, hopefully I can take a starting crack at that tomorrow, as well as review some of the Zapatista data.
