You might have noticed posting has been very light, and I’ve changed the permissions on several parts of the site. This is due to the fact that its the 26th of October and I’ve already surpassed my 15GB a month bandwidth limit. Webalizer is showing 70,000 visits in 350,000 hits, Sitemeter is showing 40,000 visits in 60,000 page views.
I’ve been trying to track why there has been a recent and sudden upsurge in visitors – and I can’t figure it out. It is not related to any specific post. Nonetheless I am seekin a new host – with a higher allowance of up to 25GB a month. Somehow a site of mostly text is chewing through about 600Mb a day, I may be the victim of referral spam. I will have to take a closer look at the raw logs.
Anyways things will get back to normal closer to the US elections.
