Interesting little factoids.

A few interesting things I gleaned from looking at my server’s log. All information is correct for today at the time of 1:36 PM.
- I get an average of 108 unique IPs per day, with an average bandwidth usage of 3 MBs per day. Given that most of my site is text, that’s amazing usage.
- The RSS feed is the most popular page, followed by the 404 page. Hmm.
- 43.7% of my visitors use Internet Explorer. At least we know 43.7% of visits isn’t me: I use Firefox.
- The growth of the site has rocketed by about 400 unique IPs per month since September when I released Writer’s Block.
- I get fewer comments than when my site was marginalised and unpopular. This may be because I spend more time writing crowd-pulling software than writing inflammatory material.
I also find it odd that txt․page — a 67-line script — is completely eclipsing Writer’s Block — a 3647-line application — in terms of popularity. txt․page has double the page views and downloads of Writer’s Block, and it got them in only a month or so.
Could this be some sort of untapped need? Do other people need to display boring manuscripts too?
