Zeno's Watermelon

This fucking watermelon will never be finished. Each bite is only going to reduce the remaining melon by half at best.

Successful Analytics ebook 2: Gain Business Insights By Managing Google Analytics by Brian Clifton

Successful Analytics ebook 2: Gain Business Insights By Managing Google Analytics by Brian Clifton

4/5

This is now the book I'd recommend to anyone implementing Google Analytics (and wish had been available when I started). It spends a lot of useful time on how to get data to be trustworthy, how to keep it that way and how to make sure that analysts have the right context when trying to use the data. Great stuff because this is the hard part. Getting data in is easy, being convinced that it's right and useful is complicated. My only real ding is that for some inexplicable reason you have to buy two ebooks instead of one. But that's minor, it's worth it.

Catfood Earth 3.40

Updated on Monday, May 31, 2021

Catfood Earth 3.40

I've just released Catfood Earth 3.40 for Windows and 1.50 for Android.

Both updates fix a problem with the clouds layer not updating. The Android update also adds compatibility for Android 5 / Lollipop.

Also, Catfood Earth for Android is now free. I had been charging $0.99 for the Android version but I've reached the conclusion that I'm never going to retire based on this (or even buy more than a couple of beers) so it's not worth the hassle. Catfood Earth for Windows has been free since 3.20.

Enjoy!

The Forever War by Dexter Filkins

The Forever War by Dexter Filkins

4/5

A barrage of Iraq and Afghanistan vignettes. No narrative, few conclusions. Depressing but illuminating.
