I hate summer, because I have to listen to my neighbours’ horrible musical selection through all the open windows.
Once again, props to the WordPress.com Data team for making our blogs 2012 annual reports.
Here’s an excerpt of mine:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 32,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 7 Film Festivals

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
My oldest daughter will be 10 this year, so it’s time for her to learn how to touch type*.
I recently started learning the Dvorak layout, and I couldn’t possibly introduce her to QWERTY, QWERTZ or any of their variations, so here she is, training to Dvorak on “das Keyboard” in Mavis Beacon, which I found out is better than Master Key. ( Because it puts the emphasis on accuracy before speed and introduces all keys quicker, which then allows you to practice in the real world, instead of asking you to type fast while still limited to 8 or 10 letters, which delays the introduction of the next ones ).
* I totally made up that rule, but hey, how do you know when it’s time to learn?
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,100 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.
