New Year 2014

January 4, 2014

This blog received 167.000 visits in 2013, slightly less than the year before (and yes, I blame it on Google Reader), totaling 685.000 since its begin in 2007.

Whereas I considered this blog to be about software development, these posts were the most popular:

I published 67 posts in 2013, totaling 587 since 2007.

The blog’s Table of Contents (created by wpxslgui) has been updated to include all posts up to December 2013.

Oh yes, and thanks WordPress for the nice Annual Report…

Happy New Year ;)

CJK Spam

October 15, 2013

There must be a huge online market for golf and fake watches targeting the Japanese.

How do I know?

Well, spam bots from and and tell me so. Permanently! Unfortunately, even if you are interested in 時計 コピー or アルマーニ 腕時計 or カシオ 時計 or ゴルフ ドライバー, you won’t find them here.

Another spam bot from seems to have encoding problems posting Italian junk text, but the accented characters end up as or . Meow.

Do you have a spam issue on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation

Well, Akismet catches most of it 😉

Follower Spam?

August 2, 2013

The internet gets stranger and stranger. After referrer spam, which I understand would only target blog admins, the latest trend is follower spam. Really?

Whatever the WordPress stats are counting as “views all-time”, the counter hit 500.000 views today!

(I have no idea what is actually being counted: Are bots and spam bots excluded from that number? Referrer spam at least shows up in the referrer stats. If I leave a blog post open for some time, does that affect the stats?

I have no idea, so I just have this one number as an indicator of… anything)

Btw, it’s spam season again, so please leave your automated comments below 😉

Thanks for visiting!

Enjoy! Back to work…
