Browser Stats June 2011

In august, google is dropping support for IE 7 . Sadly, for a cutting edge reseach center, we are still using such outdated web technology as the default browser. No that we are special, I bet other places are just as behind. The problem stems from lazy vendors building everything to work in one browser. I hate having to build crap for IE 7 or even 8 as it severly limits what is possible compared to the more modern HTML 5 browsers. Its even worse with any non web software (which there is a ton of) and requires Win XP, an OS from 10 years ago. Imagine if we had to use cell phones from 10 years ago.

It's especially weird at my work because all new computers at come with windows 7 and IE 8. I guess they have to wait for vendor approval to upgrade the old ones? To me that just seems like a lame excuse as they have had years to resolve this and IE8 has IE7 compat mode.

Anyways thats not the point of this blog. The point is that my internet stats for estrip show that IE's total share for all versions is only 18% of viewers. I know we are a weird niche population but thats crazy considering several eyars ago it was over 80% of the visitors.

Microsoft is going down. Its about time.

Chrome on windows has the single largest share at 26% for windows and firefox on windows has 27%.

Overall Visitors % by OS/browser:
Windows OS: Firefox 27.95%, Chrome 26.59%, IE 18.58%, Safari 0.30%, Opera 1.08%
Mac OS: Safari 6.63%, Firefox 5.26%, Chrome 1.90%
Linux: Firefox 1.84%, Chrome 1.25%
Android: Android Browser 1.07%, Safari? 2.19% curiously more than iphone
iPhone: Safari 2.07%
iPad: Safari 0.84%
iPod: Safari 0.55%

In general, its still a 74.63% of visitors coming from windows world. Mac is at 13.85%, android, 3.29%, Linux 3.18%, iPhone at 2.21%, ipad 0.93%, iPod 0.61%, blackberry 0.26%, playstation 3 0.12%

The backyard in Summer

It gets better every year. I realized just how much I love our rustic backyard in the middle of the city during our BBQ party last night.

This is the same party I did a one handed cartwheel while holding a full size axe and chopping wood as dared by (e:Mike). I wonder if the dare had to do with his name on my insurance policy. The axe provided a lot of entertainment. (E:samathon1986) hit one log straight in half with the ax. So did (e:Terry)'s friend pat.

Partway through the party the grill died. Seemed like a disaster. Then I took over the grill and it worked leading to some pretty delicious grilled shrimp and pineapple.

Dear Annoying Nameless

I spent like 10 hours deleting you from my life. I would have responded to your messages but you had deleted your email out.

As requested, I removed your name anywhere I ever mentioned you, I deleted your freaking account as requested after you deleted all of your journals. I also asked the two other people that used your first name to remove it. I even blurred your face out of photos that had other people in them.

Anything else remaining on the internet is your problem - the google cache should clean up over time, although I can't speak for anything people posted elsewhere or cached elsewhere. e.g. what the people that you said already found out about your "scandalous past" have done with the "incriminating photos," lol. I can't even believe you think drinking a beer in a low cut hoodie showing cleavage is scandalous. I don't envy you having to live up to the puritanical expectation of having a completely vanilla past when you were in college.

I wish you the great success keeping your future as sanitized as your past. Please don't ever talk to me again.

video screen at thursday in the square

Welcome to 2002 Buffalo. Its so crazy that they have the giant video screen now.

I saw my friend Liz that I grew up with. Its so weird seeing someone after such a long time. She couldn't believe I was a computer programmer and I wasn't on facebook.

I love Fedora 15

I don't feel like enough people thank the Gnome 3 and Fedora team for what they do. This release is nothing but awesome. I don't care what the people who are not ready to give up gnome 2 say. The workflow of this new interface is great. It really keeps the clutter out of the way and forces me to not use my desktop like a trash can.

The effects are also much more useful than the old compiz ones for me. I never used the cube and the wobbly windows had no real purpose while the activity interface on gnome 3 is extremely useful in making getting to apps easy ,as well as, keep my interface clean. That plus just about everything can be done with the keyboard.

Work is so boring right now

I am so bored with my job right now. I am having to re-write a bunch of existing code instead of working on anything new because a vendor product purchase changed the way we store employee position information.

Just about all of the other web apps depend on my directory service JSON RPC2 API so just about everything needs to be tested again.

Sometimes its fun to revisit old code and refactor but in this case, the code was very optimized and now I am just having to re-write and test a lot, in the end nothing will seem much different, just that my life will be sucked away a little more.

Street Signs In Kenmore

(e:terry) and I were in Kenmore the other day when he commented on how large the lettering is on the new road signs there. They are at least twice the size of before. He said he thought it was perhaps due to Kenmore's aging population. I think he might be right.

160 lbs

Eating more carbs is helping me put on weight. Clearly it was the food group I was lacking in most. Strangely it is addicting. I used to have a protein shake for break (banana, milk + whey protein.) Now I eat a bowl of cereal with milk and honey. Before I would not be hungry till lunch or dinner. Now I snack incessantly during the day.

I just hope I can stop before I become fat and that I didn't open Pandora box.
