Sunday, A Day of Rest.


This graph shows distribution of visitors to "The Colonel's Eagle".

As I'm still in the recovery stages of my 30th Birthday celebrations, I've just been taking it easy looking at some of my visitors statistics to this page today and I've found a few intresting things I'd like to share with you all.

Firstly, an 'unfortunate' 88% of surfers are using IE to browse, 5% Firefox, Safari 2% and the remaining 5% is shared between Opera, Mozilla and Netscape.

Of greater intrest is who is reading this. Well naturally, I know most of the people here, but what about the poor unfortunate people who unsuspectingly find themselves here?

A Canadian visitor was brought here when he asked Mysearch.com "what is the name of the muppet eagle". Another Canadian surfer asked Google "to others before the google folks fix this" as a seach term and he was to the Smurfs post.

An American in Denver, Colorado asked google to find him "colonel war eagle". The "War eagle" is a rare variation of the Colonel's rank insignia (in my logo at the top) where the head of the eagle is facing towards the arrows it's carrying. I suspect he's a collector of militaria like me.

Someone in Dublin did a google on"ciaran creedon" and was naturally brought here, obviously someone who misplaced the URL, remember to bookmark folks!

Someone in Atlanta, Georgia did a 'search.people.com' on Colonel Oliver North and a day later a countryman of his in somewhere called East Wenatchee, Washington googled the term "oliver north said i am innocent". Both were brought to my Oliver North post.

I became apprehensive when I saw that someone from the United States Government Centre for Disease Control in Stone Mountain, Georgia came here from another blog but what really got my attention was the two hits on Thursday last from, someone working for the 347th Communication Squadron of the United States Air Force who came here via a masked path so I can't tell what they wanted, or if they found it :-O

I'm off now to record Episode VII of 2IGTV a special bumper episode since it's been so long since the last one.

I dread to think what proportion of those 54% UK hits I account for!

Indeed, the wait for the next installment of 2IGTV is overlong, hurry up with it! 25 days? THought it was meant to be weekly/10 daily!

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

We do have lives mate. It's not as if we have some sort of network contract.

And I thought my threats of violence counted for something :-(

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

They do. They get counted on the humour meter.

sith apologist said...

It's better than nothing! And remember, according to one source, I will get to assault you viciously on film next year!

Cubaboy said...

I have nothing to say on this subject

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

You'll be assaulting me on film. I thought it was the other way around. The Big 'V' is fibbing one or both of us.

sith apologist said...

You were some sort of ego-maniacal character, and I was displaying my contempt for this behind your head with a prop axe?!

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

Oh that one. No I don't think he's going to do that one. You know the 'Captain' he changes his mind about things daily.

sith apologist said...

Indeed he does. Is he on a black op? I've heard nothing from him in weeks now

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

I can't discuss that here. If I did, I'd have to scissor it instantly :/
