The Best of The Week

Well, I’ve begun the weeding out process for candidates for the first annual Node of the Year awards (tentatively called “The Nodies”) and let me tell you, it’s starting out to be quite daunting. Here’s where I am in the process so far.

First of all, I’d like to say thanks to user mauler for pointing out the Writeups by Type tool. That was most helpful in getting w/u counts so far for the year 2014. I just wish it showed the rep count and the number of C!s for each of the w/u’s. That would have made this chore a whole lot easier. (Hint, hint)

  1. Essay – 112
  2. Event – 55
  3. Fiction – 220
  4. How-to – 38
  5. Idea -143
  6. Log – 393
  7. Opinion – 38
  8. Person – 90
  9. Personal – 168
  10. Place – 54
  11. Poetry – 288

Pink-Eyed Blues Great

His mother told him someday you would be a man,
And you would be the leader of a big ol' band.
Many people coming from miles around,
To hear you play your music when the sun go down,
Maybe someday your name will be in lights saying, "Johnny B. Goode tonight!"

Go, go go Johnny go,
Go, Go go, Johnny go
Go Johnny B. Goode
