I ALWAYS FEEL LIKE SOMEBODY'S WATCHING ME


Since this blog's creation we have seen a steady influx of traffic from Sony of America. Recently it's been more then our friends at 919 Hillsdale, but also Sony San Diego, and Sony of Europe. Even a few hits once and again from Sony of Japan.

THIS IS NOT AN APRIL FOOL'S DAY PRANK. THESE STATS ARE DIRECT FROM OUR STATISTICS COUNTER:

Enlarging the above image will show that Sony's Foster City offices make up 20% of our traffic. 1/5 of our traffic. What do they look at?

Well, according to the stats, they look themselves up. A lot. The hits usually start in the morning hours, and then continue to about 6-7PM in the evening. So pretty much their entire shift. So literally, they check the blog all day long. Stalkers. CydoniaX and Locust_Star often check for posts about themselves, often following the blog labels to hop around various posts about themselves. Awesome part is, this continues when they get home, as I've identified their home ISPs as well. I won't expose those because as much as I find them to be incompetent and terrible at their jobs, I respect their privacy. However, as past posts' comment fields have gone, others don't have the same moral obligations. And they love to read those as well!

So, without adieu:

  1. So awesome!

    It cracks me up, those losers, especially heidi, probably spend more time googling themselves than working. Worst. Hire. Evar!

  2. Ah darn - You've found me out! Promise you won't shut me down, as I'll have nothing to do all day while waiting for builds to compile. Seriously: Would you want it any other way? Would you prefer that we didn't watch you? Maybe if you continue to act in an entertaining manner some of us will register. You can cuss at us and stuff. It would be groovy.

  8. You guys are so funny. I'm going to suggest to management that we prop someone up on this board to hang out with you guys. Any objections?

    Groovy is the new kickin'. Don't talk smack about groovy.

  10. Heidi and gang, go register over at http://pshomeboards.proboards.com/
    The site is fucking dead right now so it can't hurt. Who'd of thought everyone wanted to be moderated by Lithium's knuckle draggers.

  11. Possibly they have just gotten into the habit of checking the blog to see if you have dug up something incriminating enough to seriously jeopardize their jobs at Sony.

    Awesome. As stupid, pretty and all around lame as that person sounds, it has to be Locust_Star Kapow. Hey LS, does this somehow justify the $12 an hour you make?

    LOLcust_Star is Home's official turd in the punchbowl.

  15. lol, did i ever tell you that Locust thinks i'm a homophobe and he thinks we're all "unfortunate souls"?

    you keep reinforcing the Dilbert image i have of you guys,
    "I did nothing all day and still got paid!"

    you say you don't like the writers here or the blog in general yet you keep coming back day after day, now why is that? if you wanna come work for us you don't have to anonymously post and visit, just ask ;)

  16. Well maybe we do have too much time on our hands... to be spending time gabbing on about another of Sony's execution failures.

    I think LS confuses "unfortunate soul" with "unfortunate customer". Some of us just don't like being treated like shit, whether it be through poor customer service, support forum censorship, buggy content, unfulfilled promises, etc, etc, etc. Some of us actually bought the console on the words and dreams of Sony's Phil Harrison, and some of us actually bought the consoles for backwards compatibility with PS2 titles, and some of us actually bought the console to tinker with Linux. Time after time after time Sony fails to stand behind their promises.

    Perhaps the truly unfortunate soul is the Sony employee that continues to fail to live up to the commitments originally made by Sony. The unfortunate souls who forfeit their reputations and character to stand behind a brand that continues to disappoint its loyal customers because they don't have the courage to either quit or fight the abuse. You stand behind a brand that has become synonymous with customer abuse. As people wake up to this they will find that the perception of Sony quality is outweighed by the assaults... the DRM, the root kits in your CDs, the untold broken promises you have made to your customers.

    Wow, that was overly dramatic. The short version: Sony sucks. I hope Sir Howard or whatever brain-trust in Minato will take the high road.

    I fully support that idea. You both do an admirable job, but it's still not enough to satisfy my hunger for information, so it'd be great to bring another person on board, especially if that person is Pygmy. :)

  20. I forget, is this a blog moaning about the lack of attention you get from Sony?
    Or a blog moaning at the amount of attention you get from Sony?

    Just a cussing moan-blog.
