Evening all! There are a couple of small updates on the site: - mail archives from February to July 2002 have now been processed from t= he=20 raw pairlist data to their nicer looking juenger.org form. - I have improved the layout of the mailarchive index page=20 (http://www.juenger.org/mailarchive/mailarchive.php) to make a more=20 user-friendly tabular layout. In the process of so doing, I noticed that there are no entries for Febru= ary=20 and September 2000. Given that pair have no archives for September, I ass= ume=20 that this is because there was no traffic in September 2000 (not unlikely= =20 given how sleepy we can all become on this list). But I am slightly concerned about February 2000 - there is nothing in the= pair=20 archive prior to March 2000. Now, this was the time when we moved from th= e=20 old Oxford system to the current pairlist system - and I suspect that may= be a=20 few mails got lost round about that time. Or no mails were sent. If anyon= e=20 has still got their old mail archives, could you check for me and see if=20 we're missing anything?? I have tried to be very diligent with preserving= =20 juenger-list material, but I have made enough mistakes with archives of m= y=20 own email to know that things can go very wrong. - My curiosity finally got the better of me and I ran some web log analys= is,=20 processing the logs for January 2001-August 18 2002, all in all, about 50= 0=20 filles making up 810,000 lines of log file. You can see the results (for = the=20 time being - I won't keep them up for ever) on=20 www.juenger.org/reports/index.html.=20 To be honest, I think the figures are inflated by search engines (includi= ng=20 myself with ht://dig!!) crawling over the mail archives which tends to gi= ve=20 an exaggerated figure and I haven't fine tuned the configuration to provi= de=20 more "accurate" results. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that there are n= ow=20 substantially more visitors to the site than a year or two ago which is v= ery=20 encouraging considering the total lack of marketing on my part. I'd also like to add that the logs reveal that my thesis has been downlo= aded=20 4427 times. Not bad and a lot cheaper than Peter Lang ;-))) (Ok, it's not= on=20 the report but if anyone would like 130Mb of log file to check...) - I fixed a small problem with the main style sheet. You may not have not= iced,=20 but the roll-overs weren't quite right. I will update the search engine to take into account the new mail archive= =20 files in the next day or two. In general, more automation of mail archive= and=20 search engine updates can be expected very soon now that I've lost my fea= r of=20 bash shell scripting. Regards, JK
