Randomzied Radio 2011-002 - Metric Clocks and Calendars

Hey Hey Hey!
After about a year of not doing one, I've got a Randomized Radio out. :) After all the RadomizedRadio.com URL points to this blog, so why not?  :)

I'm going to try to do a Shorter Podcast.  I think some call it Narrow Casting, but that's so that the article or media is pointed towards a specific niche, and I just don't have one of those.  I'm all over the board.

Back to the Content on hand.  I did a  blog post and had a phone conversation with @HeyDriver (look him up on twitter!) about Metric Clocks, and Calenders.  The Previous blog post points out that the idea of a Metric Clock and Calendar was thought up some time ago, by a Frenchmen, back during the French Revolution.

In any case, I just wanted get this posted...  I've got a few other things to do today. :)
Enjoy! Post Questions, Comments etc give me some listener feedback... etc.. Please This is MEANT to be a conversation... :)

  1. Hi Randy!

    First of all, I love that you’re back to doing podcasts! I especially liked the latest post about the metric clocks and calendars – honestly, do we need February and August?

    I know you don’t post too much on the trucking industry, but I thought you might be interested in some new changes that Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers are currently undertaking.

    I want to introduce you to a new program from Pilot Flying J, the Frequent Fueler Advantage, an enhanced loyalty program for professional drivers and RV customers. Frequent Fueler Advantage will allow professional drivers to instantly accrue and redeem loyalty points in all participating Pilot and Flying J travel centers, travel plazas and restaurants across the U.S. and Canada. Added benefits of the new program for professional drivers include extended shower expirations for loyal customers, shower credits for expeditors and in-store rewards.

    I know that a lot of your readers are fellow trucking professionals so I wanted to reach out to you to see if you would be interested in learning more about the Frequent Fueler Advantage and writing an article about them? What do you think?

    For more information, please see the online press release at http://www.pitchengine.com/pitch/114722/. Please let me know if you need any additional information.


  2. I think that you covered most of it right there. It's always good to be able to use the points off of the card like an ATM Debit card, rather then having to go to a machine, print up a $5.00 or $10.00 coupon.
