I would like to ask (any internet geeks) what this means:

If you dial "september clues" (in brackets) on the Youtube search engine, you get:

18.000 "results"

If you dial "september clues" (in brackets) on the Google search engine, you get:

147.000 "results"

Does this mean that 18.000 Youtube accounts and that 147.000 websites mention September Clues ? :huh:

If so, this would be pretty sweet! :)

I'm pretty sure that's exactly what it means Simon.

I confirmed this by dialing: 'what do Google search results mean,' into Google, and reading through the top results.
For those words, in brackets, there are about 310.000.000 results :o

The number of results is the number of pages Google found that mention the search string, the result's ranking is based on the number of pages that link to it. That is, according to Google :rolleyes:

oops - you're right, my bad! (I tend to mix those English punctuation terms up!)

Out now ! :)

SEPTEMBER CLUES - with Korean subtitles


Yes !!! We have our first Asian version of September Clues! :) :) :)

Another magic joint effort led by Hoi and Ty, a bright young English-speaking Korean man. A million thanks, Hoi and Ty ! :wub:

And again, very special thanks to David in Perugia who, yet again, performed the heroic subtitle-editing-insertion task. :wub:

PLEASE DIFFUSE TO ALL YOUR KOREAN-SPEAKING FRIENDS !

Whew, this was a lot of work, and I am so happy it's finally done — our first (and only?) Asian subtitles, and to a region/people that could really use some good news. Next: Does anyone have any skills/willingness in Chinese? Japanese? :D

Allan Weisbecker is getting the word out. But it's a tough job.

Here he is - presenting September Clues to his longtime friend (and expert photographer) Walter Ioos:

New bumper stickers!

I should mention we don't make any money on these and right now they are just kind of a joke in response to the suggestion we should even have a bumper sticker. They are the base minimum price and not marked up. (It's just a cheap print-on-demand printer.)

That is a good sticker and one that links to Septemberclues.info with a saying like "9/11 was a Hollywood Hoax" Most people who visit will see the embedded video and its a good starting point for many. I would like to bring awareness to both sites. I made a power point presentation last year as the site was offline on 9/11 and showed a few people. Thanks for pointing me to the bumper stickers.

1.000.000 UNIQUE CLUESFORUM VISITORS

Ladies and gents,

I think this is pretty funny and well, "fitting" in a serendipitious way: at around midnight (Italian time), just as we reached September 11 2014, this forum's unique visitors reached (and passed) the 1 million mark:

UNIQUE VISITORS (at time of my reading): 1,000,327
http://www.cluesforum.info/mint/


But of course, a 7 billion figure is what we're aiming for - so let's not get too excited about this ! :P

Also, strangely, 9 million for general visits. Which is about a 9:1 ratio of general visits to "unique visitors".

Perhaps fbenario is right that we shouldn't necessarily be looking to the stat program for accuracy or accountability.

What I meant to communicate was that the headings that Mint uses might be poorly, and inaccurately, chosen. Not 9 million total visits, but rather 9 million page views. For example, if I read the 10 new posts on 10 different pages during my single daily visit to the forum, that counts as 10 page views; seems erroneous for Mint to call that 10 visits to the forum. We don't have any reason to question the counting by the site, just their choice of headings.

This is good news indeed. Dean Hartwell, author of the book "Planes without Passengers: the Faked Hijackings of 9/11" (which he kindly sent me a copy of a while ago) - and Cluesforum member since February 2013, has recently published this excellent essay:


Malice Without Murder: Who Died at the World Trade Center on 9/11?
http://www.scribd.com/doc/238973065/Mal ... er-on-9-11


Dean's website: http://deanhartwell.weebly.com/essays


Well done, Dean ! :) - and please keep us updated on the feedback / responses / etc to your above essay.

Thank you, Simon! The most common reply so far is that I am insulting the memory of the dead! But without proof that people died on 9/11, that would seem pretty hard to do! :)
Still no straight answer from anyone as to a specific person who died at the WTC on 9/11/01. The media and the Internet got noisy earlier this week with people who talked about what they heard from another person or what they saw on TV or what they presumed to be true. When the noise dies down, we have our best chance to talk sense.

Dean
