According to AWStats...

AnacondaSoftware has had 139 unique visitors so far visitors this month, and a total of 18586 hits.

This blog has had 779 unique visitors so far this month, and a total of 2564 hits.

1101 of those hits are recorded as being from traffic that stayed here from 0 to 30 seconds.

No comments are ever posted on here, aside from spam.

There are 22 recorded hits from a Russian search engine for here.

There are 7 recorded hits from links from other sites, six from the Irrlicht forum and one from a malformed version of this blog's address.

There are 3 recorded search phrases that led to this site, one of which is the name of a drug that's been among the spam links.

Google AdWords has recorded only 52 page impressions for this month.

So I guess the real question is, where does all the spammer traffic actually come from?

The Consequences of Forgery

Okay, so someone faked an email so it looked like it was credible from Apple internal, so it got reported as news. Then information came from Apple that it was fake.

But here's the interesting part:

This is why authentication to e-mails is important, and technologies such as PGP were created. The world nowadays online identity is critical. I sign most of my e-mails, through the Enigmail plugin for Thunderbird. More people should do the same.

EDIT: I'm not sure what was wrong, but for some reason this wasn't publishing. Now I finally got it to work (somehow), so just FYI this is an older entry.
