Random stuff

I've decided to create an area for random writings. It's not deliberately linked to anywhere, but I wonder how many hits it will get. There's a lot to be said for Apache's directory listings (and for exporting your entire home directory as a web page).

The first article is about what prompted me to create this: web server statistics for the Department of Computing, Imperial College.

Could this be the ancestor of all '*BSD is dying' posts on Slashdot?

Or it could mean that BSD has a much smaller user base. Being generous, let's call it 50%. However, note that many of the programs for BSD are just ports from Linux (unlike the kernel, which has much the other way around). So maybe BSD has 10% of the programs originating from it. Therefore, we would expect maybe 1 BSD program there.
