8000 Posts!

We just hit it! 8000 posts, and it's only been two years since the last milestone. Feels like I've been writing both less and slower, but apparently we're still keeping a steady pace of just about 500 posts per year, and I've managed an additional quarter million words since the last one too.

It's been a ride huh... here's to the next thousand, and the special puns that may follow then...

CDB Stats 2013 -> 2019

CDB Stats 2013 -> 2019

Fetched from the Wayback. Click above for a bigger more visible version.

Taking a little look at how some numbers have evolved over the years... apparently the stats page first appeared back in the early 2010's, but it didn't have a lot of info in the beginning.

There are definitely other ways to dig through the archives and find these numbers, but for some reason I was looking at these stats through the Wayback, so here you go. Also just passed 1,500,000 words. That's somethin'.

Also notice how the numbers have commas now? That was actually not easy to add in - going to post about the process behind that soon.

1,500,000 Words...

...have been posted on this blog up to this date!!

When you stop to think about this that's pretty insane ain't it? We hit a million roughly five years ago, just a bit more than a decade since the blog started. Seems it's going at a pretty steady pace after all! Some years more some less; we all digest. Fewer blogs, but equal words and value.

Here's to the next five years and five hundred K! All crammed with meaning and inspirational masseuse.

Sunday's Over Already!?

Aw man. Had planned another six reviews and a weekly blog, but this'll have to do.

I've fixed up the rating images though. The earlier version wasn't as clear as it should've been: faded the surrounding score a bit more this time around. And my bad, it wasn't 42 reviews last week, it was just 36. Felt like 42. Six more on route to redeem that err. Week's been hectic.

In other news it's hot as hell again here, I'm testing my new fans, funneling fake coolness around the room, and I'll be going to see Sting tomorrow... unless the avenue's too packed. It's always a risk with good weather.

See y'all in time and have a good week! Gröna Lund.

808 Pages Of Posts!

Boom.

(Those of sound mind will get this.)

It's Yet Another Sunday...

...and it's been yet another good week!

Been working like a mofo mostly. Went to an exclusive early screening for Wreck-It Ralph 2 on Wednesday (review coming up as soon as I catch up with those - posted another twelve this week), to a fancy restaurant on Monday (Borgmästarn), played some GTA VC on Android every night and this weekend I finally got this thing done. Half a year after the last update!

It's been on my mind for some time now, but various issues kept coming in the way. I won't delve into detail on that again - already posted a massive post about that on the thread which the link above links to - if for some reason you're interested in what that's all about.

You might be interested if you're a big fan of NG and have no idea what the hexalist is. Or if you're not a big fan of NG in which case you definitely should become one, and check out the hexalist as soon as you start wracking up stats. It's the ultimate list.

In site-related news I've fixed it so that I can use shy hyphenation without WordPress interfering, via this simple filter (add to functions.php if you want to use it): add_shortcode('shy', 'my_shy_shortcode'); function my_shy_shortcode($atts) {return '­';}

...when that's in there you just need to enter [shy] in a post, and there you go! I'm plotting to use this for more similar time-saving things, like non-breaking spaces and line breaks. At least.

I added in a nifty little comment edit plugin last week too, so anyone who posts - account or no, has five minutes to fix potential comment errors... or delete their comment entirely should they very quickly regret ever posting it. Since we're GDPR compliant anyone can send in a request for such things anyway, though. JSYK. This is starting to sound like a promo post. Just want to let y'all know: things be changing around here! As in: improving!

I've also been learning how to make weapons in prisons, because why not right? You never know. And prison culture's interesting.

Next week it'll be off to Östersund for a long weekend, to visit my brother and his family, maybe have some both embarrassing and good times learning basic ski techniques I should have learned some twenty years ago like everyone else who lived where there was snow did and... well, having a good time. I'll be going by train, and back by plane, straight to work, and then off to Hungary a few days later.

Was feeling kind of stressed out a few days ago, but I''m calm right now... hope it's not one of those before-the-storm things. Travel's always a double-edged edge that way. For me, at least. It's great once you've gone somewhere, but just way too much preparation - mental and otherwise - before each trip. Surely that'll all fade away with time though? And I grew up abroad. I should be used to that life. Will be living like a globetrotter a little while there's still some winter darkness to stay distracted from (speaking of that though: we've got snow now: it's awesome), and hopefully come back more focused than ever; rich with experiences from the faraway world! Err... neighboring countries. Exciting times though.

May not have time to post next weekend but I'll see y'all around. A few more reviews should be up soon too.
