3 Years of blogging

Posted on Fri 07 December 2007 in About the site

Wow! That went quick. It was just over 3 years ago I installed some blog software called "Movabletype" onto my web server to run my personal playspace. I guess blogging is a phase of life that's still in me, though several things have been and gone. My running phase never quite restarted after "je suis tombe". Speaking of which, The French lessons I began in January finished and I haven't been able to get on the next ones (the teacher's great, but the course is over subscribed again and I wasn't quick enough to book in). I still get tears in my eyes when I read this post.

Onto happier things, someone other than me visits these pages. The server log shows that in November 2007 there were 10,208 page views. That compares to 1,599 at the end of the first year and 6,024 a the end of the second year.

Most people still look for this page on what the shortcut key is on Windows to show the desktop and minimise all the open programs (Windows key & D at the same time, at least for XP, I've not tried Vista enough to find out). That's not so closely followed by people searching for "steve root", I wonder who he is? After which, How much do books weigh? and how to know that shelf you are putting up is strong enough. I'm also not the only one to wonder "is damn a swear word?".
