Saw Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End last night. It was much better than I was expecting. I'd heard/read a lot of negative reviews, so my expectations were far from high.

I was pleasantly surprised. Captain Jack Sparrow just gets crazier; more ships get wrecked; more crosses are doubled and reality gets just that little bit further away. A great story, and not as plot-twisty and complicated as I had been lead to believe.

Google Analytics is a great tool. Firstly, it's free. Secondly, it is very usable. It produces lots of smooth, easy-to-understand charts and tables. It tells you everything you need to know. I'm using it to record stats for a number of sites; from sites that get 2-3 visitors a day, to one in particular that gets over 25,000 visits each day.

The Casio fx-6500g Programmable Graphing Calculator

So I was looking at the Google Analytics statistics for this site today, and noticed that I was receiving a fair amount of traffic from people searching for the Casio fx-6500g calculator. I referred to this calculator a few times back in 2003, mentioning that I could scan and render to PDF some pages of its manual if any readers so required. There are a couple of comments in this blog from people who have requested the manual, but alas they've not left their contact details.

I'm pretty sure I still have the calculator somewhere, along with its manual. I'll have to investigate the exact details, but I'm sure it would be a breach of copyright for me to scan and publish the full manual. But if anyone wants any information from the manual, we may be able to come to some sort of arrangement. In fact, since this seems to be such a popular piece of vintage electronics, I probably should find out how much it is worth; perhaps someone might like to purchase it?

Here's a bit more about the Casio fx-6500g. It was manufactured in 1986 and it does lots of cool stuff.

So, thank you Google Analytics; now perhaps I can give the people what they want.
