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.

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.

No Kamikaze Logic - Another Sunday Post

No more Kamikaze this week! I've been sorting files and listening to Logic interviews instead. And YBN Cordae. And others. While I do things like sift through photos and manage some by now much overdue backups, which I'm doing both locally and via the cloud, to this one service called MEGA.

MEGA is so much better now! You can upload entire folders now! I threw in a folder at a time, 100-200 photos each, and it didn't *knock on wood - still uploading - at least I was when I started writing this* crash a single time. Forget that: 600 files at once!!! It can handle that now. It used to crash at a hundred or less, and lag up the browser... though it's possible updating browser settings, and/or the browser and/or disabling multiprocessor support also had something to do with it.

But it can handle folders now, and just that's pretty cool. It loads faster too.

I was going to post this post last Sunday, but time just ran away back then. This week I've been on a zone therapy session, banged my toe against a chair so the nail turned black (no need for nail polish now if I ever needed it - not that I ever did), and have been hanging out with my nephew - just stopping by - the last couple of days. We've been touring the city, going to cafes and waterfronts and Fotografiska, a photography museum which apart from having exquisite exhibitions also seems like an exceptional cultural hub. Their cafe was packed, live music played in another room, and they even had real towels in the bathrooms. It's a pretty cool place. I also hung out with Buddy Bear one night and watched this old thing.

The week before this one I visited Bergrummet (a private toy museum with a pretty impressive showcase) with another buddy, and was supposed to go to a restaurant too but caught a stomach bug instead. We rebooked the restaurant a few days later but I wasn't OK yet so we booked it yet again, this coming week.

A couple days after this I ate a bag of chips, and realized I shouldn't have done that, so I've been keeping a mild diet for a while thereafter... as well as two days prior to the chips. Stayed home from work one day and that was that. Work and a variety of other tasks (been delving into online auctions too, booking trips to Tallinn and Malaga, voice acting a new role) apparently took up the rest of my time...

Oh, and we celebrated Father's Day! With some Russian chocolate from Lithuania and home-made cake that I couldn't eat (stomach bug still).

I've also been tagging up posts en masse, correcting various small site issues, and trying to find referrals for Initiative Q before my time limit runs out. People are just too skeptic. If you know you can't lose anything on something, then you can only potentially profit from it, right? Possible win/win. No possible loss/loss. I managed 4/5 referrals on the last day.

Speaking of something else entirely: I've had way too many reviews in my backlog for some time now, and they just seem to be adding up more and more, so here's a hundred I'm taking away. I'll just leave them here. In this post. Maybe some day with more time to spare I can come back to this and watch a few, or realize I've worked my way through a bunch of them without knowing it. I still hope to watch these but I just don't want the backlog right now. It's too much. Cleaning out my faucet.

There. Maybe I'll get back to those later on.

Regarding these weekly posts: I just keep coming back to them. There have been phases where they felt like an unwanted routine, but every time I'm in a good mood; when life's going well and I feel like blogging... this is just the optimal time and day to do so. It feels like I'm back on these indefinitely, but I fear announcing it decisively since maybe the pressure of routine will amount again and I'll want to take a break...

Speaking of the George Orwell thing I posted recently I just stumbled upon this thing from 2015! What are the odds. Overall it's been a good week, and the next one's looking to be just as eventful! I'll speak to you in a few.
