Alexa Rankings Stinks….

So, one of my articles hit Slashdot, Engadget, Boing Boing and many other sites the other day, and is still actually being linked from sites… we had so much traffic the site was having problems handling it, moved some stuff around and we were fine again, but Alexa has our rankings as worse, actually the worst it’s been in like a year… how the hell does that work?

Our stats says it’s like the most traffic so far this year, but yet Alexa has traffic and the ranking as going up, or getting worse, I don’t get that at all..

For the daily ranking we had 9,000 something, then for the day we got the traffic it gave us a 19,000?!? How do we lose 10,000 points in ranking when we were slammed with visitors?

There’s something funky going on there….

I got Mad Cow!!!!!


Heh.. it’s a joke… but really I did get Mad Cow, from over at

They had the Giant Microbes on sale and I couldn’t resist grabbing a couple of them for fun..

The kids love them, my three year old wants one but he says he doesn’t want Mad Cow he wants Happy Cow! Not sure if there’s a Happy Cow disease though…

anyway, they’re rather cool and fun little stuffed animals, they come in their own little Petri Dishes and on the back is the story or description of the included disease.. Fun-Fun, got some mad Cow!

So continue on for more pics of the Mad Cow organism…

more postcards!

hadn’t realized it was this long since I made a blog post.. wow, time flies when you’re busy.

Anyway here’s a few more Postcard scans:
