allisonstein What were they thinking?… Posted on February 9, 2007 by allisonstein Borders Books just emailed its monthly newsletter, personalized to my supposed preferences. There were 1,539 characters in the URL. (The newsletter itself wasn’t nearly that interesting.) Tweet About allisonstein

I’m almost afraid to ask how you derived that figure. I trust that you somehow used your computer to do your counting.

Yep — the word count feature in MS Word.

Whoah. You have a lot of preferences there, missy *g*

For some reason, the URL includes codes to turn off what I don’t want as well as to turn on what I do want. Seems like a clunky way to handle it.
