iOS 5 Webkit

Well, I upgraded my iPhone to iOS 5 and noticed that I could no longer successfully view the Library website with it. It seems as if the iOS 5 Webkit has been updated and the update kills the scrolling sidebar on handheld devices.

So, now I’m going to put together a true mobile version that doesn’t glitch.

New Feature: Article Reads in Real Time

As you can see above, the new hit counter database allows me to have a bit of fun. Visit the new real-time article read counter and check it out.

You can also pull down the title menu and select which blog you want to see the stats for directly.

New Blog Hit Counter Database Working

The new hit counter system that is in testing is working very smoothly and is much faster than the old one. When it’s ready to go and I throw the switch, it will allow individualized hourly blog statistics on each blog profile page and a bunch of other fun stuff. 🙂

Digital Humanities

Tim over on Sansblogue has written a marvelous article entitled “SBL and the digital communications revolution” which actually touches upon a large number of issues that are pertinent to the Library as well as working on a system for The Biblioblog Journal.

I highly recommend reading it.

Yikes! 1,254,177 hits counted…

So, all of you guys are apparently pretty popular. 🙂

After 1,254,177 hits (whose data takes up about 800MB) the hit counter database is deciding to sputter here and there.

At the end of this month with the monthly rankings, I’m going to have to re-design the underlying data structure and figure out a better way to store things.
