Testing. Testing. Testicles?

I'm guessing that got your attention.  I'm going to be doing an experiment.  I do lots of experiments, experimentally speaking of course.  What I'm doing now is trying on different topics and subject matter to see how traffic responds.  I've given up asking for input, nobody responds.  At least not with anything specific or clarifying in any way.  So this ship is still adrift without a rudder.  The two recent posts on Autodesk network deployments are a part of this experiment.

Here's what I'm seeing so far:

The 5 most popular articles I've posted thus far, based on unique visits between January 1, 2011 and September 28, 2011 are...

Title Hits
Home Page (changes often) 3,624
Windows 7, MSG.exe and Group Policy Preferences 3,120
Enabling Windows 7 Remote Management via Group Policy 1,808
What does the AutoCAD PURGE Command Do? 1,779
Packaging Autodesk DWG TrueView 2011 1,449
Packaging & Deployment of AutoCAD 2011 Products with System Center Configuration Manager 2007 816

Based on these numbers, I could draw one of two conclusions:

A. Windows 7 topics are the most popular ... or ...

B. Most of you just read whatever happens to be on my home page

Ugh.  Face-palm.  I'm talking nonsense to myself about nonsensicle nonsense.  The irony for me is that I receive a lot of e-mail asking for various things, mostly related to AutoCAD or Autodesk product issues, especially deployments and licensing services, etc.  I'd like to ablige with more focused content, but I need feedback from YOU to point me in the right direction.

I understand your dilemma.

Most of my most popular AutoCAD posts (copy/paste bug, selectsimilar code, bim standards, cad standards) pale in stark comparison to my most popular post: 'Geek pickup lines' (but, as I noticed the search term that brought most people to my site was 'Lord of the Rings Pickup Lines', so, I made some up and gave the people what they want. ~shrugs~

LOL! This is one of the issues that makes me waffle on the idea of closing this down entirely sometimes. I've been evaluating that decision day by day. I'm still sticking with my Dec. 24 "expiration" at this point.

O God of VLisp books. Thank you. I sort of remember you saying that you don't want to do Autocad based writing any more. Please anything you can think of would be nice. Any weird stories of how Autocad or Windows interact.

Thanks for the writing the VLisp book and giving it free for so long so very long ago.

PS. If I sign in with my google id you will find my other blog which is mostly the Jekyll part of my life whose Hyde in AutoWin based.

Sheesh. Ease up on the 'God' stuff. I'm anything but. I appreciate the compliment and kind words though. If you have any particular ideas for future posts, let me know.
