Why you haven't seen me around lately

I'm back on the boats until the end of June, maybe longer. We're working on three ships simultaneously. None of them are pretty shiny ferries.

I just finished my first week and I'm beat, too beat to post pictures. If you care, here are some links to what few pics I could find. The Alma IV, a barge which has been modified a bit so it looks a little different now -- The Fraser Titan, a dredge that looks even uglier in person than in the pic -- The Scepter, a smaller dredge that seems to have no pictures on the net because it's even uglier than the Titan. It's owned by the same company.

I have to go to bed now.

That is all.


The Google Code

Google's "Feeling Lucky" button:

The #1 hit for "0" is Business 2.0 Magazine (WTF?)
The #1 hit for "1" is VH-1
The #1 hit for "2" is Internet2.edu
The #1 hit for "3" is 3Com, the network people
The #1 hit for "4" is Channel4.com
The #1 hit for "5" is Winamp.com
The #1 hit for "6" is Apple's QuickTime download page (I don't get it. Isn't it at v7 now?)
The #1 hit for "7" is the Netscape browser page (I don't get it. Isn't it at v8 now?)
The #1 hit for "8" is Super 8 Motels, Inc.
The #1 hit for "9" is MichaelMoore.com

Remember this. It's important. There is a secret hidden in Google.

One is not the loneliest number. One has more friends than any other digit. The loneliest number is zero. Google says:

"0" has 7,110,000,000 hits
"1" has 19,090,000,000 hits
"2" has 16,200,000,000 hits
"3" has 14,260,000,000 hits
"4" has 12,740,000,000 hits
"5" has 12,510,000,000 hits
"6" has 10,310,000,000 hits
"7" has 9,590,000,000 hits
"8" has 9,400,000,000 hits
"9" has 8,710,000,000 hits

However, if you order the digits in the above list by their frequency, ("0" appears 74 times, "1" appears 11 times, etc.) you will get 0192475638.

According to Dan Brown, an important scholar, the number 0192475638 features prominently in Botticelli's work (when viewed upside down through leaded glass while immersed in salty water). Think how many of his paintings feature round shapes ("0") or 1 or 9 or 2 or 4 or 7 or 5 or 6 or 3 or 8 figures. It's obvious if you know what to look for.

As any art student knows, even though it's a closely guarded secret that nobody knows, Botticelli was once the leader of Morbus Orientalis; a secret society that fought (and still fights) against world domination by Eastern Europeans. He also wore women's clothing.

As any half-way intelligent symbologist will tell you, the M.O. symbol is two interlocked rings overlaid with the letter "R".

Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page are also members. Look at their names. The letter "R" appears twice in both of them. They chose the name "Google" rather than the more proper "Googol" because the letter "O" appears twice in the former. The "O"s together, combined with the letters "R" in their names, is evidence of their affiliation with Morbus Orientalis.

This explains why the number 0192475638 can also be derived from the Google search results. They're trying to warn us.

Remember the first list?
So, as you can see, Botticelli, Google, AOL, 3Com, Steve Jobs, Super 8 Motels and countless others are all trying to subtly warn us against the Eastern European conspiracy.

Uncover your eyes!
