  1. Site Growth, De-lurking (Again)

    In some encouraging news (for me at least), my site traffic has been steadily increasing. This is the first month I’ve been averaging over 4000 visits a day (3950 last month). I remember that shortly after I first launched the site, 1600 hits in one day seemed like an awful lot! Anyways, I’d like to…

  2. Feeds With Summaries Only

    A few blogs I read only have summaries in their RSS/Atom feeds instead of the full content, I know one fellow who just made this change recently on one of his sites and I think some of the others have made this change recently as well. One of the reasons I’ve often heard for doing…

  9. Fantasy Baseball Standings

    I participate in two fantasy baseball keeper leagues and it’s been a season of patience in both of them. In the league I run, I was down in the bottom 3 spots after the first month and frankly, it didn’t look good. I thought I’d had a good draft, but my guys just weren’t producing.…

  10. Semi-Extreme Programming
