does fuzzdecay give you diarrhea?

Two people have legitimately found my page by searching “do wendy’s frosty’s give you diarrhea?” I find this perplexing, unfortunate, and hilarious all at once. I shared this information on my twitter which auto-updates my facebook status. This was probably a bad idea. I now have these additional fecal themed searches:

  • do wendy’s frosty’s give you diarrhea? (#3)
  • do wendy’s frosty’s give your diarrhea (#4)
  • does the scifi channel rebrand give you diarrhea? (#5)
  • does a smart car accessory outlet give you diarrhea? (#25)
  • fuzzdecay diarrhea (#53)

Thanks guys! Nice to know my friends are all 12 years old. :P I’m just expecting google to drop my search rank now. Not that I didn’t giggle heartily.

Just so this post isn’t all disgusting, I’ve noticed some heartening trends amongst my visitors.

most common browser is firefox (62%), followed by internet explorer (26%) then safari (17%). I am counting this as a nail in the coffin of IE, thank god.

Most common OS is windows (46%), followed by Linux (40%), then Mac (14%).

Two people came to my site that have their computers running 8 bit color depth? 24 bit (52%) barely nudges out 32 bit (43%).

Most people are using a resolution of 1280xsomething (53%). Happy to report that no one is using below 1024×768, which is itself only 17% of the demographic. There are two hits from someone with 320×240. I think that might be an iPhone? I also only have two hits from one, so I’m just guessing.

Although I’m sure my sampling of visitors isn’t completely indicative of overall trends, it’s still nice to see IE having its ass handed to it.

i've been informed that macs also are 24bit. our options are "256", "thousands" and "millions".

from my (albeit brief) research, i've gathered that the difference between 24 and 32 bit has nothing to do with actual color. it's extra alpha channels to assist in gui transparency and smoothing.

you can't actually display cmyk on a monitor. you can only display an rgb interpretation of cmyk.

They're the primary colors of two different color systems, additive and subtractive. rgb is the additive color system, because it's formed from different colors of light which add together to form colors. subtractive color is pretty much the opposite of additive. the colors in cmyk are formed by the light that the pigments in the ink decide to reflect. It's technically supposed to be blue and red instead of cyan and magenta, but cyan and magenta reproduce flesh tones better, and are used instead.

Apparently, 24 bit color actually produces more colors than your eye can actually discern. I don't actually know a lot about color depth, though. It's something I feel as though I should look into.

no. just the browser and the browser/os together.

That's unfortunate. I'm curious to see how many ppl are still using ie6 and ff2.

i'm still using ie! :p i like it's file downloading defaults better than firefox's "here, let's just dump everything onto the fucking desktop". ie at least asks you where you want to download each file. and i'm definitely one of the people running 32 bit colour. does it tell you what version of windows people are running?
