Well, it's time to have a look at the logs again. First up - BottomFeeder weekly downloads.
Platform BottomFeeder Downloads Windows 520 HPUX 475 Mac 8/9 343 Sources 268 Linux x86 209 Mac X 172 CE ARM 86 Update 38 Solaris 15 Windows98/ME 11 Linux Sparc 8 AIX 4 SGI 3 CE x86 2 Linux PPC 2 ADUX 1
That's an average of 308 or so a day over the last week, which is where things have been at lately. Being cross platform has its benefits - A lot of my download rate is for platforms that have no other viable RSS/Atom answer right now. Let's take a look at the stock HTTP accesses to the blog site:
Tool Percentage of Accesses Mozilla 44.4% Internet Explorer 31.1% Other 11.6% Java 2.6% Google Bot 2.5% BottomFeeder 2.5% Net News Wire 2.3% MSN Bot 1% BlogLines 1% Opera 1%
A little more variety than last week, but not vastly different. What I'd really like to do is compare User Agent access to the main cincom site and the blog site - I suspect that IE accesses over there are a lot higher. Finally, let's look at the RSS report:
Tool Percentage of Accesses Mozilla 23.4% BottomFeeder 17.9% Net News Wire 14.4% Other 15.4% BlogSearch 4.9% NewsGator 4.2% SharpReader 3.5% Safari RSS 3.3% BlogLines 3.2% Lilina 2.1% Planet Smalltalk 1.8% Feed Tagger 1.7% MSN Bot 1.7% Internet Explorer 1.6% Feed Demon 1.5% Liferea 1.4% RSS Bandit 1.2% Feed Reader 1% Shrook 1% Jakarta 1% Python 1% Google Bot 1% JetBrains 1%
You can see that I trawled my way through the "Other" category (compared to last week) and added a few entries - the variety of tools in use to read RSS continues to grow, at least according to my logs.
