Getting Ready to Drop Dropbox

DropBox has hired a big fan of Warrantless wiretaps. I can't really trust them with my data after that. Whats next? Snagging a few Obama era NSA executives?

What cloud services do all y'all use other than Dropbox? I'll need 250 GB to 300 GB to replace Dropbox, another 100 GB to consolidate a few other services I'm using. Box.com is in the running, but I'm still a bit miffed at their very poor documentation about support for older platforms. (They support 64 bit OS 10.6, but not 32 bit, and their support staff is CLUELESS about the difference. I'd be OK with the distinction if they were capable of communicating it up front.)

Janet's Revenge Available in the Kindle Store

My efforts to write under the pen name "Matthew Wunderlich" have produced "Janet's Revenge," the tale of a woman getting back at a man who did her wrong. Inspired by a true story. The names have been changed to protect, well, everyone. I'm not sure all the statues of limitation have expired.

Inspired by The Bloggess, Search Terms that Lead People Here

Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess, will periodically post a list of the strangest search terms that have lead people to her blog. With that in mind, I thought I'd examine the same data for  my own blog.

michael cremo debunked  Not surprising, given my article Michael Cremo, fraud or just incompetent?

auburn wa motor city books 
motor city books These search terms are expected, given my post Motor City Books, no book, no contact, I want a refund

paul mounet keanu reeves
is keanu reeves a reptilian alien  These results are unsurprising as the "Popular posts" widget on my blog lists my post about The Keanu Reeves Conspiracy Theory as the #1 most popular post I've published so far.

joshua mills fraud  I'm glad people looking up the Glittering Flaming Con Man for Christ! are finding my article about the huckster.

The rest of the search terms that lead to my site were just as mundane, leading people to posts like The Truth about Atlantis THEY don't want you to know and my battle with First Financial and their efforts to rip me off. Frankly, I was hoping for something a bit more "out there" in the search terms. All of these are related, at least tangentially, to actual articles on my blog. Jenny Lawson gets incoming search terms that are delightfully irrational yet mine are, given the content of my blog, depressingly accurate.
