What a difference 3 days make!

News news news.

The car is at one of the better shops in Houston. The insurance agent came out to day to do the estimate, but the results aren't in yet on the damage. It will more than likely be much greater than Russell and Smith's original estimate, due to the fact that they missed the nose clip damage and damage to the front wheel and tire.

The bigger news, however is that this site is now on the front page of results when search for "Russell and Smith Honda" on Google or Yahoo. It should also be noted that Google feeds Aol's, Netscape's and Exite's search results, and Yahoo feeds Altavista and both of them feeds tons of other search engines.

Think of how many people are going to google the name of the dealership they are considering doing business with, and will see this:

The response has been overwhelmingly positive, and I really appreciate the community spirit. All I can say is thanks to God first and everyone who helped sound the alarm (all 9000 and counting of you).

The other news is that the General Manager called me today, but we didn't get a chance to go into to much detail, so I will save that for when I have something to write about. At least it leaves something for posting tomorrow.

There's no such thing as bad publicity? Well, we'll see about that. It's very encouraging that the "little man" can have such an impact. The Internet -- the great equalizer. Good luck with your conversation tomorrow.

Excellent work Derrick - this truly shows the power the Internet can impart to an average person in a crap situation.
