Click-Through Q and A
Every now and then I’ll check my blog stats to see the kinds of web searches that led folks to this blog. Some of the searches are pretty pointed and I wish that I could just email specific answers to the searcher (and I also evaluate the UDVUX blog post they found to see if it answered their questions). Anyways, here are some of the more common web searches I get…
