I use the excellent Google Analytics for tracking stats on my blog. One of the things it tells me is the browser that you, dear reader, are using:
I guess I shouldn't be too surprised that a technical readership should marginally prefer Firefox. But it's still very nice to see.
What else can I tell you about yourself? Well you're probably American.
I had an interesting discussion in the office last week. I'm British, but I suggested that since the majority of my readership is from the USA I should adopt US spelling. Even mentioning such a thing was like finding a raised toilet seat in a nunnery, so rather than being lynched I'll stick to 'through' rather than 'thru'. It's a marginally interesting factlet that English speaking kids take almost twice as long to read and write than most other European countries because of the awfulness of our spelling.
One last thing, and this really does surprise me: The vast majority of traffic to my blog is driven by Google searches which is the result of random people typing in random search terms and then finding their way here. The curious thing is that the numbers are so consistent. Every week looks the same with between 200 and 250 visits during week days and 50 to 70 at the weekends. I would have expected more variation, but I guess it's a good demonstration of the predictability of randomness that it's like this.
