Horrible jet lag. Unable to go to the gym yesterday; after I came home from my job interview and the supermarket, I felt so tired I had to briefly lie down, and fell asleep at 6. Woke up at 10. Made dinner at 11.30 in a brain haze, went to bed at 1. Recruiters are calling me at 9.30 (two this morning) so at least I do not sleep in too much.

One of them was for a luxury woman's apparel website, and the email asks to respond with anything besides my CV that would indicate my suitability for the role. I wondered how to write down and back-up a professional version of "I am a style-obsessed homo." I sent my portfolio instead, it includes some concepts I did at previous gigs for Moms, and the PHKL.

Incidentally, no PHKL mail in months. I still have the top results in Google for "pink hello kitty laptop" and "hello kitty laptop", but the availability of officially licensed laptops is focusing the efforts of the computing 11 yo set better, I think.

Someone's trying to sell the PHKL on eBay. Except I know Melinda would never list it as working, nor have access to the four-figure-dollars Kimora Lee Simmons Hello Kitty bling to sell with it for 50 bucks.

A HK fan emailed me this morning to ask what was up. I checked and reported it to eBay, but I bet they won't do shit for a while.

Jeezus this thing has legs.

Yes, I have seen NEC's latest Hello Kitty laptop. You can all stop now. But I started wondering and it turns out I still have the top result on Google for "hello kitty laptop" and the third hit for "pink laptop". Which made me check the traffic stats for exonome -- something I really never look at normally -- and indeed, while all during May on average I got around 350 visits per day in May with only one day over 400, June 4th, 6th, and 7th all have over 400 visitors, with yesterday at 470. Traffic goes almost exclusively to PHKL, with YZPL being a distant second.

April and May have seen a leveling of unique visitors to under 10K, but I am already at 2300 right now. People are obviously looking for pictures of this laptop on Google, and ending up on my page.

The main referrers besides search-engines are still Hello Kitty aggregator pages in UK, NL, and HU. I am intrigued by one referrer page: comment.pl at fark. Obviously they are discussing the NEC laptop and someone posted to me.

Who knew this thing would have such legs. I also just noticed one referrer being an LJ that just discovered it. Let's read what they have to say. Hopefully it is not too nasty -- most comments on it I find on the net are either "This is horrible these chicks should rot in hell!!!!" or "IWANTONEIWANTONEIWANTONE!!!!elevtny!!!!"

I forget who recently expressed amazement at me that the PHKL still got hits. Since the month rolled over, I decided to look at exonome's stats for July..

15506 requests in total for the page.

Top 10 referres include:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=43115.0
http://repair4laptop.org/notebook_modding.html
http://www.hello-kitty.co.uk/index.htm (links page)
http://hello-kitty.startkabel.nl/k/hello-kitty/index.php

I had to do some searches to find out exactly what page from the sites pointed to me.

Note that

http://slashdot.org/article.pl
http://slashdot.org/comments.pl

are good for 120 and 90 hits over the last month. In a way, I am still being slashdotted since the 30MB in 20 days deluge of December 2001.

I am wondering if I should start attending Hello Kitty cons just to see what happens.

I generally do not answer requests to send stuff or inquiries about prices, because I am very clear not to ask me that. I just wanted to share with you the glorious state of my inbox some days. That and I am fascinated by the odd email, like the ones that  basically say "I like it, send me crap now", or addresses in farms in New Sealand.

Yeah, well, kid, I wish Sony would send me a U101 laptop too, but I doubt sending them mail is going to make it happens. No request that I become a surrogate parent this time, though, but I have no idea where I was am supposed to leave it.

Cuz what Khalid needs is a pink fuzzy laptop. Or one with a space-station model on it. Or pokemon figurines and stickers all over the keyboard.

I just got the first email in which someone didn't aske me to do it again, or didn't just plan to do it, but sent me a URL to where she did it. And while not as out-of-control as our PHKL, did a fine job in my opinion.

--Kate, who may be regretting the onslaught of frightening rabid
illiterate kitty fans soon
I'd better warn her that she is right.

I don't believe for a second this woman is not some 14-year-old girl trying to scam me with a sob-story. I still get weekly "Make me one!" requests, but at least this one seems to have read the page, and I didn't want to withhold the e-mail address from my dedicated readers. Sheesh. I'd put a $6000,- pricetag on the page to make them stop asking, but Sanrio would come after me in a heartbeat.

Dean Jomes



This is the latest kind of mail I am getting, presumably from having the PHKL and other laptops webpages up. Usually they also mention that the laptops need to be sent to Nigeria, and they always want to pay by creditcard. It is always urgent. Absolutly nothing about the mail indicates they know what kind of laptop was on the webpage they hit. About once or twice a month.
