Blog Icon

Well, I’ve finally got the blog icon working – in a good browser it should be showing right beside the url.

Here’s the larger version

It references the “under construction” signs that you used to see on every website in the mid to late 90’s, but forms the letter “H”, for Halfdone.

April Halfdone NZ Blog Stats

While there’s no difference in the post, this month we have moved from the hampsters (which were getting tired) to the new Hampstinator(TM).

It’s a lot faster, and has a couple of other improvements which have given me time to check the numbers more thoroughly this month, and pick up a few missing authorities.

To be included, blogs must contain posts on topics of interest to the general public. For a more detailed criteria list, see July.

March Halfdone NZ Blog Stats

Very late I know, but it seems some people are still interested! 🙂

Blog Rankings

Ok, so I guess no one’s missed the blog rankings.

After last month’s farce, I decided that there were a few aspects that needed tidying up.

One issue is that there are a number of blogs that are simply not there anymore – gone. I’ve now gone through the “defunct” blogs and discovered about 40 blogs that have either disappeared, deleted or the owner has signed off for good and not returned in reasonable time. These will now be removed. I’m still subscribed to all the RSS feeds, so any returns should get noticed… eventually.

The other issue is more behind the scenes. I realised that the time it takes is again starting to creep up. That’s a sign that I need to sharpen up my processes again, so I’ve also been working on that. Suffice to say, it’s been more work than I expected.

February Halfdone NZ Blog Stats

Ok, a bit late this month.

UPDATE: It’s been pointed out that the scored did not match the rankings. I have recalculated the rankings,and they now make sense. I apologise for the error!

I’ve also added in data for roarprawn that did not come through in the batch. The graphs should also now be correct too.

It’s always the last, stupid thing you try!

Gr. Youtube has been doing funnies on my computer over the last couple of days.

Any page on their site was showing as text only, with an image showing instead of the video. In blogs, there’d be thing big blank where the video should be.

I tried everything. Flushing cache, reinstalling flash (multiple times), different brower (still broken in IE). After hours of searching, I finally tried rebooting the router.

And now it works. Yay.

Always the last thing you can think of…

Now I can again watch funny and/or thought provoking videos posted by random people I’ve never met.

January Halfdone NZ Blog Stats

Well, I’ve been working on a number of things over the past month.

The one that actually has made it to fruition is the little graph icon in the “Last HDR” column. Any blog that’s had a ranking over 200 in the last year (excluding the current month) will give a graph showing the rankings over 200 over the last year.

Does that make sense? See what you think anyway.

Theme Changed

Saw there was a new theme on WordPress.com, so I thought I’d try it.

Be assured…

…things are not getting worse.

Kiwi pundit was getting sick of No Right Turn way back in 2004.

I used to read NRT because there were no other decent left-wing NZ blogs out there. Now there are several so I no longer need to hold my nose and wade through his rhetorical sewer. I feel cleaner already.

Funny how nowadays Idiot likes to casually talk about “the sewer”.

Turns out, he’s the original article.

Still there…
