On a completely differnt note..... (sorry!)
Statistics are interesting things. No, honestly, I'm not going to go all nerdy on you.
You may have noticed in the left hand column a number showing how many visitors we have had. This does more than just count - it tells us quite a bit about you
For instance, over the last week:
- 28.39% of our visitors are from the USA
- 23.70% from the UK
- 21.35% from France
- 11.46% from Australia
- The other 15% of you come from 15 other countries, except for 23 of you who are stateless, floating in space or just plain too hard for the counter to find.
Quite a few of you (I'm not going to work out exactly, it's about 20%) come from other blogs, notably Ken's and David Lebovitz's, either from their links or from comments we have left there. Other people click on the link we put at the bottom of all our emails and forum posts.
Not only do we know where you are and what youre looking for, we also know about your computers:
- 68.60% - Windows XP
- 11.80% - Windows Vista
- 10.20% - Unknown
- 7.80% - Mac OS X
- 1.00% - Windows 2000
- 0.40% - Windows 2003
- 0.20% - Linux
- Only 5% visitors over the last week have their monitors set at 800x600.
Don't get scared by all this - These statistics are kept by everybody, on every site you visit, and are helpful to site owners because they let us know what you like to see, and how you're seeing it*. We don't get your name or address, and quite often even the city it says you're in is wrong.
Interesting stuff, eh?
* I could go into a rant about Internet Explorer here, but I will restrain myself. Just.
