In Summary

After reading what seem like hundreds of blog posts wrapping up 2008 by advertising traffic stats, best posts, New Year’s resolutions, and predictions for 2009, I’ve decided to write one myself.

Traffic Stats:

  • People visit my blog. Some days thousands. Some days a few. I also have an RSS feed that some people use.
  • Observations indicate that when I write useful things more people visit. Weird, I know.
  • I wish my readers would all gather in the same place so I could buy them a drink.

Best Posts:

  • All of my posts rock. Except those that don’t. And I’m not going to point those out. 🙂
  • I do have to say, though, that in thinking about “best posts” lists I wondered how new readers here would ever get to see some of my old stuff. So I’ve decided to start looking at what I was talking about over the last few years, and link to those periodically. Plus, it’ll help when I have writer’s block.

New Year’s Resolutions:

  • I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. I make decisions to change things in my life regardless of the proximity to the beginning of a year.
  • That’s just my style, others have theirs. Do what works.

Predictions… I make lots of predictions, and they’re all extremely prescient. Examples include:

  • “I predict that when that application runs the server out of memory it will cause an outage.”
  • “If I don’t get gas I predict we’ll have a problem in a few miles.”
  • “This solid state disk is sweet. I predict these will be popular in the future.”


So yes, 2008 was a good year, for a lot of little reasons, and a couple of big ones. And it’s the big reasons why I’m looking forward to 2009.

  1. Given the couple of pieces of useful VM info you have given me I should buy you a few drinks.

    I wrote drinks as drives the first time. Hmm.
