Afghanistan-A-Go-Go

A Reservist's Tale Of A Tour

Watching Blog Stats

WordPress has a couple of interesting features, not only does it tell me how many hits I get on the blog, and where they come from if they have direct referrers, but it tells me what search terms lead people to the blog (some are bizarre, I have to say), and also an idea of where readers come from. Most hits originate in Canada, which doesn’t surprise me, because virtuatlly everyone I’ve distributed the site info to is Canadian), but every now and then I will get weird one-offs, and sometimes, a whole bunch from one country – like the other day about 11 from Austria. Could all be the same person, know knows, but it was interesting to see that number of hits.

Today is a scorching hot Friday, though hot is a relative term, I’ve got a trip planned to southern Afghanistan where there is a whole lot more heat to contend with – and we’re headed to the range shortly for a mix of training and some good friendly competition in pistol and rifle shooting. Good way to spend a Friday afternoon, especially given that the power is off in the office while electricians do some work.

I did manage to sleep in today for the first time in a while, which was nice – my new room is pretty comfortable (if small) and there’s some luxury in no longer having a roommate – though even if I hadn’t moved, he’s gone on leave for three weeks anyhow – actually, with the way our leave process works it’ll be almost a month before I see him again. We’re busy working on pranks for when he returns.
