Wow, 15,000 hits in one month!

You know, when I started this blog a few months ago, I figured it would be a good place for me to gather my thoughts on a subject in which I have a fair amount of interest, and serve as a kind of howto repository for myself.

I keep a lot of notes when I learn things in the Linux world, and I considered The Linux Critic blog to be an extension of that.

Sure, I felt at the time that others might get some benefit out of my howto posts, and on my other posts where I review applications, wax philosophic on the subject of open source, get snarky on aspects of technology about which I feel strongly… well, I thought that anything that fosters discussion and in some cases “says what needs to be said”, regardless of how unpopular the opinion, still furthers the cause of making things better for those of us using Linux and free and open source software going forward.

That said, I honestly didn’t expect this much traffic. I figured the only people who would pay this any attention would be me and a handful of geeky friends of mine and that’d be about it.

Well, last month I had around 9,000 unique hits on The Linux Critic, and this month I’ve had over 15,000 unique hits, and I gotta say, I didn’t think that anyone but my friends and I would be interested in reading any of this.

So for those of you who have been reading the occasional post here, following regularly, or just popping in while doing a search for how to do something, thanks!

And for those who have bothered to take the time to pound out a comment or two, thanks again! I like the comments, I love the discussion, and I’m thankful, even to those of you with whom I don’t agree. Really.

Cheers!

  1. Hey, when i finally write my article on uing Slax to run KDE3.5 indefinitely, you should consider letting let me publish it on your site, since outkasts3510 is averaging about a dozen hits a day. about a dozen hits a day.

    By the way, Slax keeps turning out to be even more amazing than i thought. Yesterday, I found a directory called “tools”, which contains a script which makes it easy to generate custom cds, and another script that converts .deb packages into slax modules. So maybe, just about anything that’s in Debian (all five DVDs worth!) can be easily ported to Slax! I’ve already successfully ported a bunch of packages from Slackware 12.2, using the tgz2lzm command. I added them to my hard drive slax system, used the script to make a 1.1 gigabyte live DVD, and later, since I got an upgrade, I was able to run the DVD from my RAM. There may be as many ways to run Slax as there are sex positions.

    Yes! Absolutely!

    I haven’t had the mindset lately to dig into it, but it definitely sounds intriguing.

    Let me know when you have something, and I’ll set you up as a contributor.

  3. Great, this is the perfect venue for me. I’ve been way into KDE3 lately, but did you know I’m also a big fluxbox fan? Word!

    I would also like to write a better documented, more coherent version of my investigation/rant about how KDE4 apparently doesn’t really use 40 per cent less resources than KDE3.
