It has been a banner month for this web site. I have almost broken 100MB of traffic; sitting at a little over 97MB transferred as of today. The second highest was in May at 77.96MB for the whole month. Is it coincidental that the traffic has gone up in the two months since I posted winfo on freshmeat.net? I don't think so. It is, of course, a direct result of the listing. The winfo archive is only 680KB — that is a lot of downloads. It isn't all winfo downloads, though. People do have a tendency to browse around the site once they get here. Which brings me to the point of this post: It seems that the second most used browser to view this site is Safari (24.4%), right after Firefox (48.3%). This is a small problem. Safari's CSS support isn't quite as good as Firefox's. When I wrote the CSS for the current "theme," I didn't have access to Safari to test with and just assumed that everything would work out fine. Well, Safari doesn't show the navigation bar at the bottom. It will show the page numbers but not the archives link. So, Safari users, I apologize that the site isn't working quite as well as it should. When I found out that it is broken I started thinking of new designs for the site but never started work on one because I was about the only one using the browser to view this site. I also didn't have time to devote to the task considering the fact that most used browser worked fine. The end of summer semester is here and I will have a few weeks between semesters; I intend to fix this problem during this time so just hang in there a little while longer.
No, Jason, I haven't forgotten about your site. I intend to work on that during this break as well.
I need a vacation just so I can sleep *sigh*.
