Search Results for: LMGTFY

People that refuse to use Google are maddening!

Let me clarify.  I know this topic has come up at least a dozen or so times,  maybe a hundred times on the blog.

Don’t believe me? GOOGLE the phrase: GoodMorningGloucester “Google is your friend”
Actually,  Let me Google the search results for you,  here-

HERE ARE THE SEARCH RESULTS FOR GOODMORNINGGLOUCESTER “Google is your friend”

But it is beyond frustrating when the same people ask you the simplest questions via social media which require more keystrokes to actually type the question than it would to get their answer had they simply typed the subject into Google.

An example of this would be

Where in Hades is Cape Ann Giclee?

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Cape+Ann+Giclee+address

I know I’m not cracking up,  please just for my own sanity,  click on this link to Google-

Link to Google

And type in- Cape Ann Giclee address

You get the address to Cape Ann Giclee,  right? 

I’m not the only person in the world for which Google engineers designed the algorithms to give the desired search results am I? 

Am I living in some crazy Google MATRIX world where Googling  something only gives the desired results to me and the rest of the world gets exactly the opposite search results of what they were looking for?

FOR THE LOVE OF CHRIST PLEASE FIGURE THIS SHIT OUT PEOPLE! IT’S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE I SWEAR!

Updated With Release Location and Map!: Second Tagged Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons

Update6/25/14

Joey,

This is great information, I appreciate your continued support of the tagging program, thanks to many of you this tagging project has been a great success, we’ve obtained recapture information on 24% of the lobsters that were tagged.  This is a very good reporting rate, and although we have yet to analyze all the data we’ve collected, we do have some preliminary results to share.  Out of the 2,200 lobsters we’ve tagged, lobstermen have provided recapture information on 525 lobsters.  Though finer scale movements within the state of NH are extremely important to this study so that we can properly assess seasonal migrations, perhaps the most interesting tag returns have come from Massachusetts.  Since tagging began in 2012, approximately 50 lobsters have been reported in Massachusetts waters, four of which were caught off of Cape Cod and traveled nearly 100 miles.

The lobster that you reported was tagged on 6/16/2013 near the Isles of Shoals and it was a female.  At the time the lobster was tagged it measured 79mm which is sublegal.  Approximately a year later the lobster you reported moved approximately 45 miles (straight line distance), molted and was legal size when caught.  The majority of tagging for this project has been completed; however, we’re very interested in receiving recapture information as long as lobstermen are observing these lobsters.  Thanks again for your support and let me know if you have any additional questions.  I’ve attached a map from Google Earth so you can see where the lobster was tagged and recaptured.

Thanks,

Josh

Matt Cooney Landed This Tagged Lobster A Couple of Days Ago

2014-06-22 11.23.252014-06-22 11.24.562014-06-22 11.24.122014-06-22 11.24.33

2014-06-22 12.03.33

A couple of years ago Dave Jewell caught one and when we contacted the NH Fish and Game authority who was responsible for the tagging program they gave us all the information about where it was released, when it was released and how far it had travelled.  Hoping to get the same feedback on this one.

This was the one Dave caught two years ago-

NEW HAMPSHIRE FISH AND GAME LOBSTER TAGGED AND RELEASED ON 9/21/12, CAUGHT BY OUR LOBSTERMAN DAVE JEWELL IN GLOUCESTER ON 11/12/12

2012-11-15 13.00.27

Dave Jewell skipper of the Lady J came in a couple of nights ago and handed me this tag which was attached to a lobster and the coordinates of where he caught it off Gloucester MA on November 12, 2012.

There was a telephone number on the other side of the tag which I plugged into Google and it came up as the number to New Hampshire Fish and Game.  So I then Googled New Hampshire Fish and Game Lobster Tag and came up with this result

So then contacting Josh Carloni from New Hampshire Fish and Game’s Lobster Tag program I asked him more about the program and if there was any info he could give as to where the lobster that Dave caught was released or if we could put together a google map to show how far it traveled from September 21st to November 12th-

tag 247

If you have a press release about it or a google map of where certain lobsters were released and where they have been reported, that would be something that would get people excited.  anything visual has great impact.

an interactive google map would be really fun.

especially if you can put this particular lobster on there from where it was released to where it was caught.

Dave caught the lobster at Lat/Long 42.41.8/ 70.25.4

This was the info from Joshua about when it was released and the program itself-

Joey,
That lobster was tagged on 9/21 near the Isles of Shoals (42 57.186, 70 35.823), it was a female spent egger with a v-notch and it was 93.8mm.  I just had someone put your coordinates into google earth and it appears that lobster moved 20 miles.  If you would like to add something to your blog that would be great.

We’re trying to identify areas in New Hampshire with aggregations of large reproductive females and then track their movement.  It appears the Isles of Shoals area has a large number of large females with eggs and we would like to know why they are there and their associated movement.  Though we’ll be looking a variety of other information from this study, this is the major objective.  We’ll also be tagging smaller females and some males so that we can compare their movements with the larger animals and identify if they’re undertaking seasonal migrations.

We hope to tag a total of 2400 lobsters by November of  2013.  So far we’ve tagged approximately 550 lobsters and we have recapture information from approximately 70 lobsters.  A couple of lobsters have been reported travelling to the Gloucester area and two more lobsters were reported in the Portland ME area.  We really want to spread the word so that fishermen will report tags when the catch them.  There will be a raffle held in 2012, 2013 and 2014 and winners of the raffles (three winners each year) will win a 50 dollar gift certificate to New England Marine Industrial or a Grundens sweatshirt

My suggestion to Josh is instead of simply having a page where the fishermen can report lobsters caught with tags that he create a page with maps and info of every lobster released and caught with the names of the fishermen that caught them so they can generate more interest in the results with the fishermen as well as the general public and the people who are funding the studies.

Big Brother???

I’ve asked this question before, but never on GMG.  I have yet to get an answer.

Can anyone out there tell me what these things are???  They look like polaroid pictures. Speed checkers, car counters, solar gizmos, mere reflectors???   Big Brother seems to be watching for something, I guess.  

I used to notice one random one on a rock…somewhere near Exit 15 heading North on 128 in Manchester.  That damn thing wouldn’t budge.  It stood there through rain, snow, wind…you name it.  It kind of looked like an old iPod glued to a rock.  I became a bit obsessed with checking to see if it was still standing day after day.  It always was.  Sooner or later, I started to notice them everywhere. Some are bright blue….some are black or grey.  They are on street signs, on the medium strips, on guard rails….everywhere!  For some reason, I only really notice them going to and from work in Beverly, but I did notice a bunch near Gillette Stadium in the fall while stuck in traffic leaving a Patriots game.  With so many of them now, my love affair with the first lonely one on the rock has diminished.  I keep forgetting to check if it is still there.  I’m sure it is.

Ummm, and, for the record, before Joey goes all crazy-ass LMGTFY on me.  I have tried “Googling” it several different ways and haven’t had any luck!

Joey, I’ve been cheering your rants about people who ask you for info instead of finding it themselves on Google. This morning as I was reading through the blog, I thought I had come to a situation where I really would have to ask for an explanation. Lovasco’s weather synopsis said, “Bombing storm off ACK later today.” As a humble ignoramus from the backwoods, I had no idea what this phrase meant. However, I didn’t want to put you or Lovasco in the position of having to say, “LMGTFY.” 

So I went to Google, followed your instructions precisely. I typed in my question: “What does ACK stand for?” Of course there were a few explanations of “gagging sounds,” and one reference to the Anglican Church of Kenya, but as I scrolled down, there it was – before I got to the bottom of the very first screen full of options: a reference to Nantucket Memorial Airport, which is known by the code ACK. 

Today I bring this message of hope to all FOBs: See how helpful Google can be to an Ipswich resident unfamiliar with the sophisticated parts of the state? Google can be helpful to you, too!

Love from the far west side of Ipswich,

Doug Brendel

It’s never going to sink in is it? ARGHHHHHH!!!!!

I should really just submit and resign myself that there are people that no matter what you do or say or how many times it’s repeated, they will refuse to use a search engine.

Need to get me one of those LMGTFY T Shirts, baseball caps and whatever other products they come up with.  If they have a car wrap I’ll buy one of those too.

Hi Joey

Did I miss the posting of One Billion Rising on GMG?  Coming up on FRIDAY FEB 14. Peeps looking on GMG but haven’t seen it yet!

Thnx so much!
Name Removed , LMHC

Response:

No it was posted three times.  a search would provide the links

there is a search box and there is also google.

might i suggest the search terms one billion rising and goodmorninggloucester.

Here are the results 

There are no less than 5 results.

Now the thing that really tends to get me going more than having to point out that search engines exists is that when you suggest that search engines exist to most people, they seem genuinely indignant and feel like you are singling them out for being a dummy.

I should note that this is not the case with the person who sent me this email who I am sure is a very lovely person.

This note to those who refuse to use search engines –

GOOGLE- PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD- TAKE ONE MINUTE OF YOUR LIFE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO POINT YOUR BROWSER IN THE DIRECTION OF GOOGLE AND TYPE IN YOUR SEARCH QUERY.

WEBMASTERS AROUND THE GLOBE WILL REJOICE- THE WORLD WILL BE A BETTER PLACE!

I MAY PLAN MY OWN ONE BILLION RISING EVENT TO RAISE AWARENESS OF PEOPLE WHO REFUSE TO USE SEARCH ENGINES.

*note: If this email was a joke in response to last week’s post linked below then I hope you burn in hell.

How much could I charge for a seminar to teach people how to look for things on the internet using a search engine?

Search Questions I Get

Joey,

Could you please tell me where I can find the promo you ran about my new book.  I’ve been looking through today’s GMG and I can’t locate it.
Thanks,
Barry Stacks

Go Ahead Click The Google Search Button.  Please.  I know you have it in you.  I just know it can’t be that difficult to grasp that there is thing on the interwebs called Google that actually allows you to find things that may be posted about a certain subject you may be interested in.

If you have a thing against the word “Google” and it sends shivers up your spine perhaps you could try Bing.

Googlephobia- the fear of using a friggin search engine to find something on the internet.

image

I swear to Christ I get 3-5 of these questions a day.  Every day.  It’s maddening.

On top of being able to search anything on the internet there’s also a Good Morning Gloucester Search Engine.  I swear it’s there.  I promise

actual screen Shot of Good Morning Gloucester Home Page below

You can go to the homepage here- www.goodmorninggloucester.com  Bookmark it for easy reference.  The search engine is in the top right corner.

You can use it to search.  I promise you won’t get herpes or anything.  It’s been tested.

Is It Astounding In 2013 That Someone Would Ask This Question Rather Than Google “Hard Merchandise T-Shirt”?

I got this email last night (name removed as to not embarrass the nice person)-

where can i find t-shirts for the hard merchandise?  cant find it on this place, or im looking in the wrong place.  help me out ok?  thanx

 

In no way shape or form am I trying to be a prick here.  It’s just interesting to me and I thought I’d share the fact that there are HUGE numbers of the population that haven’t figured out how to do an online search using a search engine.

I mean it had to take more energy for this kind person to type out the email asking where they can find Hard Merchandise T-Shirts than the energy it would have taken to type “Hard Merchandise T-shirt” into a search engine.

So you know they truly don’t understand how.  They’re not being lazy, they just don’t understand that they could Google it.

Here’s a Public Service Announcement for those folks that haven’t figured out how to search for stuff online (an everyday life tool I think you should know about)-

There are other Search engines such as www.bing.com and www.lmgtfy.com you can use to perform searches for things you would like information about or products to buy.

I understand that many of you already understand this but if you saw how many questions a day I get with simple questions that can be answered with far fewer keystrokes you would understand that there are huge chunks of the population for which this tutorial will help immensely.

If we can help just one person understand how to perform an internet search that previously didn’t know how I’ll consider this post a smashing success.

thank you for your time and understanding

New Hampshire Fish and Game Lobster Tagged and Released on 9/21/12, Caught By our Lobsterman Dave Jewell In Gloucester On 11/12/12

Friday’s Net Tip

As a new GMG reporter I am already starting to run dry of island topics in the start of the winter doldrums. So to fill in on Friday I will supply an internet tip.

Someone out there, maybe a family member, thinks you are a computer guru because you bought something from Amazon. So they e-mail you a really stupid question like what is the address for Amazon or how do you put a stamp on your e-mail.

Here is your response: What is Good Morning Gloucester? << click the link for an example of the trick.

OK, that was pretty nerdy. How did I do it? Easy. The link for that one is:

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=What+is+Good+Morning+Gloucester?

You can come up with your own by just replacing the ending with the question they asked and putting the plus sign in between. Try it out. Amuse your friends. Or maybe it is just me that is easily amused.

Here is another.
