About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 26,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see it.

The busiest day of the year was November 9th with 142 views. The most popular post that day was Simple Maths in the Unix Shell.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were steve-parker.org, google.com, google.co.in, ubuntuforums.org, and rackerhacker.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for bash maths, suid bit, shell script timestamp, awk one liners, and bash field separator.
