Website Update - Top 10 Page List Updated for December

Top 10 ListI'm a couple weeks getting to this, but here it is - the most popular pages from my site for last month. I think this is the first month since I've started keeping track that everything that made the list for the previous month made it back to the list the following month, though there was definitely some shuffling around.

  1. Autogyro History & Theory
  2. Blog - A Skeptical Look at MBT Shoes
  3. Blog - Letter to Pharmacy about MBT Shoes
  4. Programming
  5. Factoids Debunked & Verified
  6. Downloads
  7. X-Plane, UDP, and Visual Basic, for X-Plane version 8
  8. Theoretical Max Propeller Efficiency
  9. X-Plane as an Engineering Tool
  10. Blog - Golden Compass - A Surprise at the Bookstore

Website Update - New Factoid Debunking Page

Factoids?I've made a new factoids page, Factoids Debunked & Verified, Part IV. As usual, only some of the claims are true, while many don't hold up to investigation, and are either misleading or outright false. At least it's better than the previous factoid e-mail I received.

For anyone keeping track, you may have noticed the lack of an update to the non-blog portion of this site in November. Actually, I did make one, but it was too small to merit it's own mention here - I put up a new picture of me and my wife on the About Me page. So technically, I've still maintained an update per month average. I'd like to get at least one more substantive update before the end of the year, but December's looking pretty busy.

Website Update - Top 10 Page List Updated for November

Top 10 ListWell, I managed to be pretty much on time updating the list this month. Like normal, most of the popular pages stayed popular, shifting rankings just a little bit. The big surprise this month is that Theoretical Max Propeller Efficiency earned a top spot. It's nice to see something so constructive and useful becoming more popular. (Actually, it's just missed making the top 10 list several times, so this isn't a huge surge in popularity for the page. And really, it's not like any of my pages are hugely popular.)

  1. Autogyro History & Theory
  2. Blog - A Skeptical Look at MBT Shoes
  3. Programming
  4. Blog - Golden Compass - A Surprise at the Bookstore
  5. Factoids Debunked & Verified
  6. Blog - Letter to Pharmacy about MBT Shoes
  7. Downloads
  8. X-Plane as an Engineering Tool
  9. Theoretical Max Propeller Efficiency
  10. X-Plane, UDP, and Visual Basic, for X-Plane version 8

Website Update - Top 10 Page List Updated for October

Top 10 ListI'm about half a month late in getting to it, but here are the 10 most popular pages from this site for the month of October. Once again, it's pretty similar to months past. The big surprise this month is that an old blog entry, Golden Compass - A Surprise at the Bookstore, made the top 10 this time around. The only other time it made the list was back in January, when I blogwhored and advertised it on Pharyngula.

  1. Autogyro History & Theory
  2. Blog - A Skeptical Look at MBT Shoes
  3. Blog - Physical Comparison of Humans to Other Animals
  4. Programming
  5. Factoids Debunked & Verified
  6. Blog - Letter to Pharmacy about MBT Shoes
  7. Downloads
  8. X-Plane as an Engineering Tool
  9. X-Plane, UDP, and Visual Basic, for X-Plane version 8
  10. Blog - Golden Compass - A Surprise at the Bookstore

Website Update- Updated Graphics Program & New Quotes

It looks like I've just squeaked by getting an update in for this month. In fact, I've made a few changes (though a couple are very small). First, I've updated my Programming page with the latest version of my Circle Gradient Pattern Generator. This new version makes animations, not just still images. In a related update, I've added a couple of those animations to my Artwork page, including YouTube versions that loop when you play them (just add &loop=1 to the src link in the embed tag). Unfortunately, part of the way I control the animations right now is through actually changing the code itself, meaning that an executable version for my Downloads page is still a ways off. Hopefully I'll get to it eventually.

For a very small update, I've added a few new quotes to my Quotes page - one by Douglas Adams, one by Mark Twain, and one by Jean Giraudoux. I don't really expect most visitors to this site to look at that page, but it's a nice place for me to keep them for myself.
