7 Blogging Statistics Rules – There is Life After Page Views

Posted by Igor Moochnick on 03/26/2008


Just red a pretty interesting article from Scott Hanselman about Blogging statistics. I agree on most of the items except from a few minor points:

1. I see a different pattern – people come more on Fridays and not on Mondays. It may depend on the style or content of the blog. I can’t compare my visitor numbers to Scott’s but I do have a graph to prove my point. (Note the deep valleys – weekends).

2. I’ve switched from Google blogging mainly because they had no built-in statistics for the bloggers. I need to check it again, but I do love WordPress due to it’s built-in Code snippets formatting.

HTTP Request processing sequence [ HTTP/1.1 (DELETE, GET, HEAD, PUT, POST) ]

Posted by Igor Moochnick on 03/26/2008


While reading Joe on .NET presentation on AJAX Security and AJAX Patterns I’ve stumbled on a pretty good diagram that describes the sequence of processing an HTTP Request and when, what and what errors will be returned at any different state of the process.

Check out original Alan Dean’s post HTTP/1.1 (DELETE, GET, HEAD, PUT, POST) for more information.

Great source for graphical widgets – ideas for XNA Games

Posted by Igor Moochnick on 03/19/2008

map elementsCheck out the OpenClipArt collection of SVG files. You can find a lot of great widgets there. You can easily enjoy them in WPF/XAML as well by converting them.

One of the resources, that impressed me a lot, is a collection of the RPG items. You can see (and download) all of them on Nicu’s site. He even shared how it was made  in a nice tutorial.

This can be a great start for an RPG game for the newly released XNA SDK.

If you’re curios – come to the next XNA User Group meeting. On the next meeting we’re starting to learn how to create XNA Games from the very beginning. No previous game development experience is required. If you want to learn and have fun – it’s for you.
