Mid-month Saturday stats – this blog only

Noticing a spike here yesterday (249 views) I thought I’d review how this blog has been going so far in November. The monthly total so far turns out to be better than last month: 185 compared with 165 per day, but still lower than the first half of 2009. There have been six referrals so far from that National Library listing.

Old favourites dominate the top twenty individually viewed posts in the past 14 days. * = recent posts.

  1. How good is your English? Test and Answers 216
  2. Australian poem: 2008 series #9 — 138
  3. Australian poem: 2008 series #8 – Indig 85
  4. Dispatches from another America 74
  5. The Great Surry Hills Book Clearance of 2005  71
  6. Australian poem 2008 series #17: "A 41
  7. Links 41
  8. Australian poem 2008 series #10: Peter S 40
  9. * Aunty Beryl story – South Sydney Herald 35
  10. Maurice O’Riordan’s view on nude children as art 33
  11. Postcard from Patagonia 26
  12. Kevin Rudd as art critic 21
  13. Liberal – Conservapedia: this is not a joke 20

Combined geekery and stats post

I have been having fun configuring and tweaking the new ACER. At the flummery level is Desktop Icon Toy which has enabled me to do strange things to the desktop icons. They dance when you hover over them too. Cute. So now my desktop looks like this:

More usefully, a very handy program called Gizmo Drive has enabled me to create copies of two of my most useful CD-ROMs here on my own computer. First is an Oxford Encyclopedia whose most useful feature is the complete Shorter Oxford Dictionary.

Oxford

Second is Nodtronic’s Over 4,000 Works of Literature. Yes, I agree with the reservations expressed there, and it is quite old now, but nonetheless it is a handy thing to have on board.

eurekaLast but not least I do commend something I have been using for a long time now:  Anvir Task Manager Free.

This screenshot was taken a few minutes after start-up. Note the detail below. Drive G is the thumb drive which has been turned into around 2G of extra RAM. You will see it is working. See also The things I learn.
