    Mein Gott! who is still using IE? They probably get more false positives than actual attempts from competing companies products. Poor saps will get hit and then spend a crap load on something they can fix for nothing.

    “who is still using IE? ”

    30.3% according to the stats

    does the 3,300 posts refer to thread starters by DPF?

    and the 14,548 ‘responses’ by us plebs?

    average of less then 5 responses per post seems low

    Dean
    I wonder if DPF could lose the film and theatre reviews, his walks and the travelogues and so lift that average this year.

    [DPF: If you don't like what I choose to blog on, then stop reading. This is not a blog just on politics. It is my personal blog on everything I find interesting. I get pissed off at comments like yours. You're like the person who is invited into someone's house and start telling them what is wrong with their furniture. You wouldn't do that )I hope) in person so do not do it here]

    That’s exactly what i mean which means a lot of people are using desktops with a smattering of laps thrown in.

    Looks like a digit is missing from that number.

    The numerous Bain posts will bump up the 2013 stats. So many people live and breathe for the “innocent” paperboy.

    DPF:

    I have a suggestion that would significantly improve the Kiwiblog-on-mobile experience.

    At the moment the thread loads at the top. If you’ve already read a thread, and want to scroll down to catch up on new comments, that can be a real pain in longer threads.

    Any chance of introducing a “go to end” button (similar to the existing “back to top” that appears at the end of threads when viewing on mobile)?

    Were there any other countries? Maybe you could lump them altogether as ‘other’? I know for a fact that there are Kiwis in Turkey, South Korea, Japan and Hong Kong who are regular readers.
    Interesting that there are more visits from America than from UK.

    geez DPF, why so grumpy? Is it because the beached one is continually beating you in the blog rankings? Inviting your readers to p!ss off won’t help matters.

    [DPF: Not grumpy, and you fail to understand why I blog. I blog to express my views on issues and things that interest me. I do not blog in order to keep other people happy. You seem to think you do me a privilege by commenting here. You have it wrong. I extend the privilege of commenting to others.]

You’ll work it out one day, and until then… we’re all here for ya buddy. Good on yer mate!!
