So Many Entries | 09/24/07
Congratulations to Jamie, the winner of Guess The Number of Entries Contest. There was a very wide spectrum of answers but at the end of the day there really were only three close answers: Jamie (1088), Elena (1200), and Steve (1318). At the time of the quiz, there were 1,114 entries. I started the blog in November of 2003 so there's been roughly 1350 days in between now and then. I think tossing up a post for 81% over a span of nearly four years is pretty darn good--more than five a week throughout the life of the blog.
I've already started working on the annual set of changes for the site. I spend so much time working on other sites this one gets painfully neglected. Over the weekend I wrote a new script that resizes the Photo of the Moment section so the pages should all load faster as the server workload decreases to take a smaller picture. I don't have all the bugs worked out yet--instead of resizing it's just cropping out anything that's bigger than the size I want right now. Also on the blog to-do list is rewriting the entries div's so that I can put a picture of any size in without it overflowing it's little area. I'm also working on a little daily sidebar game but that won't be ready for another couple weeks.
