  • March 31, 2019 - 2019 Crazy Winter

    Here's the month in review: It got cold. It snowed. It stayed cold. It snowed some more. Then some more. Then some more. Stayed cold. Snowed a little more. OK, that's probably not exact. So, here's the last 4 weeks of infrared satellite images showing the busy weather. #wawx @NWSSeattle

  • February 16, 2019 - Annual E-mail Statistics, Part 3

    2018 E-mails, Betty C. Jung
    Welcome back to a look at my E-mail statistics! Here is another way of looking at the total of E-mails I have to deal with on a daily basis.

    For 2018, I only got about 218 E-mails a day. This is down from a high of 2014's 336/day! The percentage of spam E-mails is now down to 16%, from a high of 50% in 2014! Over the years I have discovered that with a spam filter in place I can just delete everything that ends up in the spam inbox. So cathartic when I press "delete." One can only imagine how much paper would be wasted if all this was snail mail.

    2018 E-mails, Betty C. Jung
    Welcome to a look at my E-mail statistics! This time I was actually able to do a 7-year trend analysis!

    Here is a line chart of the total number of E-mails I got on an annual basis. The good news is I am getting less spam these days, and have actually got less E-mails in 2018 than I did in the previous 6 years!

  • February 12, 2019 - Annual E-mail Statistics, Part 1

    2018 E-mails, Betty C. Jung
    Welcome to a look at my E-mail statistics! Since 2012, I have been diligent about keeping track of how many E-mails I get on a daily basis.

    I started doing this because I tell people that I am constantly inundated with E-mails. I would say that I get hundreds. And, then people would say that nobody gets hundreds.

    So, like the epidemiologist that I am (among other things), I decided that I will track the number of E-mails I get and then analyze the results.

    Here is a bar chart of the total number of E-mails I got in 2018, per month. The monthly totals are categorized as either regular E-mail and Spam. For 2018, I got 79,743 E-mails! Yes, indeed, I do get hundreds of E-mails a day! However, I am glad to report that this total is 8,933 less than year!
