■ Most popular blog posts in 2012

I started this blog back in January 2007 (6 years and running!). I don't write as much as I used to. It could be writer's block or the enlarged family. Still you people are reading the older stuff I wrote.

The other day I was examining my website's raw access logs with AWStats. (this isn't the easiest tool to use as it requires Perl and some bugfixes but it is industrial strength). Below is a list of the top blog articles for approximately one third of 2012.

Why are these articles popular? Obviously people found these interesting, and most likely google also liked the keywords used, so the URLs rank high in the organic search results. As you can see many are related to programming. The top article shows how many people are missing the old column handlers — which xplorer² revived.
