.: The RSS feed for PBD is working again. I wasn’t aware that there was a problem with the feed until a friend in Winnipeg advised me that it was linking to the PBD 2.0. With help from WordPress Forums, it seems to be functioning properly now.

Time Away

Posted in Uncategorized on June 30th 2005 by Randy Reichardt

:: First, thanks to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday via e-mail, comment, phone, card, etc. Much appreciated, thank you kindly. Today I begin a few days off from work, returning on July 12th. I’ll be in Winnipeg late tomorrow night. Posts may be few and far between. Enjoy the summer…

State of the Blogosphere

Posted in Uncategorized on March 18th 2005 by Randy Reichardt

:: Via Rafael’s site, a link to David Sifry’s “State of The Blogosphere, March 2005, Part 1: Growth of Blogs“. He reports that Technorati is tracking >7.8 million blogs and 937 million links. The Technorati site today lists 7,926,598 weblogs watched, and 950,105,944 links tracked. The blogosphere has increased in size 16 times in the past 20 months, and ~30,000 – 40,000 new blogs are being created daily. It’s not all good, Sifry reports, as part of the growth can be attributed to spam blogs.

30-40,000 blogs a day? I don’t feel as bad now trying to keep up with Tony’s prodigious output. 😉

Winnipeg Notes

Posted in Uncategorized on July 15th 2004 by Randy Reichardt

:: I had a nice time this evening with some of my cousins, visiting them and their families, and my Auntie Carol, at Birds Hill Park, north of Winnipeg. I arrived home to find a note from my dad regarding my mom, who has been in considerable pain for about six weeks, with an infected left shoulder. The note said that she is in the hospital having surgery. My dad called a few moments ago, and told me that the surgery is over, but my mom will need to stay in the hospital for a couple days. He said an orthopedic surgeon did the work, and that a scope was used. I hope they were able to discover the problem.

:: This just in: watch for the new right-wing weather channel from Fox News.

:: The Emmy Nominations, released today, were as usual, predictable for their omissions, if nothing else. But I was astonished that Ian McShane did not receive the nod for Best Lead Actor in a Dramatic Series for his portrayal of saloon operator Al Swearengen, in HBO’s Deadwood – unbelievable, unforgivable and regrettable. HBO received 124 Emmy nominations, including 20 for The Sopranos and 11 for Deadwood, which was also passed over for Best Dramatic Series. McShane gave the performance of his career in the 12 episodes of Deadwood which aired this year. Gary Dretzka, writing in TV Barn, agrees, highlighting the snub of McShane by the Academy, as well as other predictable omissions. One nomination that was long overdue was Mariska Hargitay for Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. Read every prime-time Emmy nomination here, if you need to know them all.
