Some Useless Stats for www.phoneboy.com in 2006
This is one of those navel-gazing posts. Please ignore if you don’t care about this kind of stuff. And let’s lay blame where it is due for starting this. The only reason I am doing this is because I generally don’t look at my stats unless someone asks me to. It’s been a while, so I figured I’d dive in and see if anything interesting pops up.
Actually, 2006 has been a year where I have changed content management systems twice, so things are a little sketchy overall. At least between Drupal and WordPress I kept the same URL structure. I also get a surprising number of hits for articles that no longer exist on my site, mostly old Check Point stuff.
The stats came from whatever my webhost 1&1 does to generate these statistics. Not sure what they do to generate this stuff. I am also doing a certain amount of “manual parsing” of this data to get the interesting bits.
