30 Highest NBA Salaries for 2006 - 2007 Season
Which of these NBA player is being the most grossly overpaid in the '06 - '07 season?

1. Kevin Garnett
2. Chris Webber
2. Allan Houston * Retired $20,718,750

11. Brian Grant ***
12. Stephon Marbury
13. Grant Hill
13. Jalen Rose
16. Eddie Jones
17. Antawn Jamison
17. Vince Carter
17. Dirk Nowitzki
17. Paul Pierce

No more Colbert or Daily Show on YouTube
If you haven't noticed this y ourself, YouTube has complied with an order to pull all clips of The Daily Show, Colbert Report, and South Park from their service. Presumably the demand comes from Viacom, who clearly doesn't understand how helpful the Comedy Central clips have been to generating popularity around their porduct.
My top downloaded videos
You now see 37 videos on Google Video if you search for kskobac.
Today's report shows the most watched and downloaded videos as:
The top video, Ben Kweller live at Webster Hall in New York, is odd because it has 111 downloads to only 32 page views; I wonder if this is because of it being embedded in my website, as well as others, and incorrectly tracking?
k. b. skobac readership statistics
Here's a quick look at the readership statistics for my website, for the week of 10.10 - 10.26.
From the chart above I found that:
- 69% of my traffic is organic (from search engines), but those people read only 1.36 pages at a time, so they likely leave after they get what they were searching for.
- 24% of my readership is from referral links and they read just a little more, at 1.4 pages per visit
- 7% of my readership comes directly to my site, and they stay for almost 2.5 pages at a time, reading much more content on average.
The raw numbers:
- 41 people a day on average
- 58 page views a day on average
- 284 visits total
- 409 page views total
FullTorrent - a new torrent search aggregator engine in the block
share your files at box.net
This looks like a great new torrent search aggregator. FullTorrent has a simple interface, and a few tests bring up good results from several of the premier torrent sites.
By the way, I served that image on the fly with Box.net Lite, a simple one-two-three tool to upload an image and get a code for pasting into blog postings or webpages. 1 GB of free storage for all of your files.

Hear George Bush read your speech
This could be mildly ammusing if you're bored at work: Attach phrases together and hear President Bush read the speech. Unfortunately there's not categorization of terms and there isn't enough flexibility to make a truly funny one, but then again look how successfull the YouTube remake of him singing Sunday Bloody Sunday was.
Google trys to protect its copyright and avoid becoming xerox
Google issued a statement yesterday that walks through the ways you should use the term "google" in relation to the engine. Why are they doing this? Intent to protect copyright is an important issue now online, where people are utilizing websites like Google as part of what they do on their own, blurring the lines between the two. In order to keep "Google" from becoming open domain, the company has to defend its usage, or they cannot help it at all becoming a word like "xerox", which will mean to copy, regardless of if you are using a Xerox machine or otherwise. Since "google" was redefined in the Merriam-Webster and Oxford English dictionaries this year...
Usage: 'Google' as noun referring to, well, us.
Example: "I just love Google, they're soooo cute and cuddly and adorable and awesome!"
Our lawyers say: Good. Very, very good. There's no question here that you're referring to Google Inc. as a company. Use it widely, and hey, tell a friend.
Usage: 'Google' as verb referring to searching for information on, um, Google.
Example: "I googled him on the well-known website Google.com and he seems pretty interesting."
Our lawyers say: Well, we're happy at least that it's clear you mean searching on Google.com. As our friends at Merriam-Webster note, to "Google" means "to use the Google search engine to find information about (as a person) on the World Wide Web."
Usage: 'Google' as verb referring to searching for information via any conduit other than Google.
Example: "I googled him on Yahoo and he seems pretty interesting."
Our lawyers say: Bad. Very, very bad. You can only "Google" on the Google search engine. If you absolutely must use one of our competitors, please feel free to "search" on Yahoo or any other search engine.
