Why don't I got stats like this?

I feel like I am 13 years old again ......

Picture this it is 1982, I'm in year 2 of comprehensive school, we are in an English class and there's no teacher and Craig Sullivan is holding court in the back row! [His parents owned a video / music / computer shop and he surfed - so in Swansea circa 1982 he was a geek but way cool with it!!] And he leans over and says "so what video recorder have you got VHS or Betamax?" and I'm mortified! I feel myself start to blush and feel the cold sweat break out on my forward and the wave of shame sweeps me and I mumble out of the side of my mouth "we haven't got a video!" I can still remember the shocked looks, the giggles which ended up as full out laughing and eventually the pity in the gazes .... yeh ok, probably not but it felt like it at the time. To this day my mother laughs over the way we begged for that video recorder. [Yes, mental cruelty was/is her forte!]

Anyway back to the point of all this, whilst flicking through the usual blogs today I noticed on someone's profile (I don't usually profile flick but it was more of a meander than a flick today!) that he has stats!

stats



It shows all kinds of information which I could work out about myself BUT do I want to sit here and count how many posts I've ...... posted? Work out the average number I write a week? (This is the killer one) count how many words I've written? Actually why do I want information like this anyway ..... because, if you've got stats - why don't I got them? : o (

Web stats can be very unreliable, depends on the program behind it. There are problems like eliminating spiders and people refreshing the page.

Besides, quality before quantity.. that's why I'm here. :-)

blogger has it in their "to be fixed" list...mine stopped at 65 posts and hasn't moved for months, they said something about it making the servers unstable...

i wish i were working, i want to know how many words i've written without counting them all up...lol

hope this clears things up a bit...
