the internet sucks

Aug
17

I figured out that my e-mail problems of a few weeks ago was due to a spam fikder being turned on and filling up my main account’s space. I think it was running for about 2 close to 3 months.

In that time, it caught over 100,000 spam e-mails.

2005 Stats

Unique Visitors and Bandwidth doubled in ’05. Pages and hits tripled. The more I think about that, that’s not horrible impressive because I think it’s not keeping pace with the content. Better than going down.

Things were up from May, though not as much as April. Which is surprising to me, because it didn’t seem like we had as much new content. Maybe it’s mysterious AAA love.

Hey, this is late. Hey, no one cares.

For whatever reason, everything was up 50% last month. Hits, visits, whatever. I’d be intersted in this development if I wasn’t 98% sure it was spam bots screwing with everything.

I don’t think I ever actually mention totals, but just to give you a fair idea: take your expectaions and lower them 90%.

I’m 40% doing this to see if I’ve got subcategories going. If things are good, there’s two icons up there in the corner.

Everything across the board is up this month, and pretty cleanly, which seems odd given the relative lack of days, but whatever. Last day of the month was the biggest; if only it was a leap year.

What I like best is I’m getting less people hitting a search term and hitting back as fast as possible; number of visits and pages/hits per visit are both up.

High amount of highs from .au this time. Mexico hits still lower than I’d like, ha ha ha.

I finally figured out where I was supposed to have unchecked something on every post to disallow trackbacks. A nice SQL update fixed that and hopefully less spam for me.

I never did this. I was busy. And now I’m really really tired and I can’t find my iPod to computer connector. I *hate* that little thumb sized thing because I always lose it.

A post in the W thread mentions Daivari’s Magic Carpet Splash, which he tried for (and missed) way back on the 10/05/03 Heat, and a link to that recap is why it made the top 10.

First full year of stats in one place in a long long long time. Well, at least a full year while I was at the same hosting provider; I’m sure there’s full years of stats from places I’ve long since left and hoped would delete my account already.

(That’s #12 on my list of “issues I would have to take care of if I tried out for a reality show.” #1 is Learn Stick Shift.)
