Website Update - Top 10 Page List Updated for May

Top 10 ListMan, I've had a busy past few weeks. Not only do I have a lot to do with work, but I've been using my lunch breaks mainly to research things to do during my upcoming family vacation to D.C. Granted, I lived inside the beltway for 6 years, so I know all the big things, but I'm trying to find good information to give to my wife and daughter that are better than me simply telling them about it. Plus, there's so much stuff to do that there are still things that I don't know about. So, anyone with advice on fun things to do in and around our nation's capital that aren't usually in the tour books or that have only opened in the past few years (since I've moved to Texas), leave a suggestion in the comments. We're willing to drive a couple hours for a worthwhile day trip.

Looking through the server logs, I can definitely tell the difference in traffic between now and when I was posting more often. Last month, I had the least amount of visitors to my site since November of 2007, and only 82% of the visitors I had this past January when I was more active. I hope I can find the time to start writing more again soon. I have a lot to say, and a few good blog entries that are already partway finished. Plus, there are a couple comments on this blog that I really want to respond to (short version - doctors and clinical trials are both very good things).

Anyway, on to the list of top 10 pages from May. The only surprise is a short blog entry titled A Few Comments. Considering that there's no real content in it or its comments, my guess is that it was being visited mainly by spam bots.

May List

  1. Autogyro History & Theory
  2. Blog - A Few Comments
  3. Blog - A Skeptical Look at MBT Shoes
  4. Blog - Letter to Pharmacy about MBT Shoes
  5. Factoids Debunked & Verified
  6. Programming
  7. Theoretical Max Propeller Efficiency
  8. Factoids Debunked & Verified, Part II
  9. X-Plane as an Engineering Tool
  10. Downloads

Website Update - Revised Tutorial for X-Plane, UDP, and Visual Basic, for X-Plane version 9

Just a real quick entry - I've updated my tutorial for X-Plane, UDP, and Visual Basic, for X-Plane version 9. There are a few changes between versions 8 and 9 of X-Plane that affect network communications such that methods in the old tutorial wouldn't work anymore. Hopefully this new tutorial will help at least a few people.

Website Update - Top 10 Page List Updated for April

Top 10 ListHere it is, the monthly update of the most popular pages on my site. Nine of the ten pages were the usual suspects. However, I was surprised to see my Life on Mars blog post become so popular. It was the second most visited page on my site in April, but I wrote it back in January. I wonder where the interest is coming from?

April List

  1. Autogyro History & Theory
  2. Blog - Life on Mars
  3. Blog - A Skeptical Look at MBT Shoes
  4. Programming
  5. Blog - Letter to Pharmacy about MBT Shoes
  6. Factoids Debunked & Verified
  7. Downloads
  8. Theoretical Max Propeller Efficiency
  9. Factoids Debunked & Verified, Part II
  10. X-Plane as an Engineering Tool

Website Update - Top 10 Page List Updated for February and March

Top 10 ListWell, I completely missed updating this Top 10 List last month, I missed a blog entry last week, and I haven't made any updates to the main site since December. I apologize for the inactivity, but I've been very busy at work, so my lunch breaks have been too short to spend much time on this website. I'm glad to have been able to make the blog posts that I have.

Anyway, since I missed this list last month, I'm posting two lists this week - one for February and one for March. Like normal, it's the same pages that generate most of my traffic. I was happy to see, though, that blog entries are starting to make that list more, and that it's dynamic (entries making the list soon after I post them). That means either that more people are starting to pay attention to my blog, or that more spam robots are finding my site as a target.

March List

  1. Autogyro History & Theory
  2. Blog - A Skeptical Look at MBT Shoes
  3. Blog - Letter to Pharmacy about MBT Shoes
  4. Factoids Debunked & Verified
  5. Programming
  6. X-Plane as an Engineering Tool
  7. Downloads
  8. Theoretical Max Propeller Efficiency
  9. Factoids Debunked & Verified, Part II
  10. Blog - Book Review - Evolution: What the Fossils Say and Why It Matters

February List

  1. Autogyro History & Theory
  2. Blog - Letter to Pharmacy about MBT Shoes
  3. Blog - A Skeptical Look at MBT Shoes
