It’s the middle of April and, thanks to a blog anniversary post from Scott Sheppard, I realised I overlooked my own March 31st blog’iversary! It is now thirteen years since that first tentative post. I must have hit dismiss (not snooze) on the calendar reminder when it appeared a week before!
It has been a pretty quiet year blog’wise but now, working back at The Warehouse, I will be able to post a bit more. I have been playing with some exciting technology recently and look forward to sharing that when things have progressed a bit more.
I still find it amazing that thanks to this hobby I’ve made, and in some cases met, many friends around the world. New Zealand is a long way from everywhere but social media eliminates that gap. To everyone, everywhere, thanks for visiting, reading and subscribing!

Statistics follow in the extended post but, as are for me, you don’t have to read them
Another year of less than prolific posting on the CAD blog but the personal one upped the post rate to a couple per week.
Visits & Subscribers:
The weekly “blog beat” is still fairly constant, thanks to the back catalogue as much as any new content.
I was surprised to see NZ drop to sixth (from second!) but the US and commonwealth countries still lead. Nice to see a few more Asia-Pacific visitors too with Indonesia and Philippines showing for the first time.
Browser & Operating System:
It’s interesting to watch this over the years even if it doesn’t really mean much due to the small sample size. Chrome (on Windows) leads rising from 42% to 58%. IE fell, rather dramatically from 19% to 13%, with W10 Edge browser only recovering about half of the IE loss in its rise from tenth to fifth.
Operating Systems saw Windows still on top, almost unchanged, with Mac and iOS falling behind Android. I wonder if the responsive theme helping with mobile/tablet viewing had any impact? Surprising to see Blackberry still there and Nintendo 3DS? I suspect those Windows Phone visits may be just me!
Of the Windows versions 7 still rules, although 10% down on last year. Windows 10 is rising, from 8% to 30%, as 8/8.1 disappear. Both XP and Vista still appear, although well down, and someone is still on Windows NT/2000!
Thanks for reading this far through the numbers if you did, see you next year!
