Random Notes 7/30

Things I discovered in my domain’s access logs:

  • In the last month, I’ve gotten over 3000 hits via Myspace. No, not for my blog: for a picture of a baby panda in a plastic container. It’s adorable, I’ll give you that, but apparently a bunch of people on Myspace have put it on their…Myspaces? Whatever the hell you call that crap. I’m debating whether to screw with them by changing the image to something utterly random instead.
  • In the last 14 hours and 22 minutes, there’ve been 1,124 attempts to post comments to my old blog, and 635 attempts to post trackbacks. These all get 404s in response, since I shuffled the old blog well out of the way. I’m wondering when, if ever, the comment spammers will realize that the old blog doesn’t exist any more.
  • There were still people subscribed to my RSS feed! Well, that won’t really come as a surprise to most of you: I’m betting the odds are pretty good that most of the people who’ll actually see this post are legacy subscribers from back in the day. I redirected the old MovableType feeds to the new WordPress feeds this morning, so you’re getting the new stuff now. Enjoy.
