953 people added you to their Favourites THIS MONTH?! That's a lot a new regular readers. I've always wanted to ask though, how on earth do you have technology that tells you that someone, somewhere added you to their Favourites? I just can't understand how that would register.

1,700+ visits per day? That's more than the Peking Duck isn't it?

Oh, by the way, please pass on my thanks to Dave (?) for holding the fort while you were away. 2 weeks without the Linklets isn't something I want to repeat anytime soon.

Linklets should return tomorrow, ceteris paribas.

I get the data from my server stats. The numbers ignore visits from robots and search engines, but will inevitably include some spammers and others that aren't human visitors. That's right, aliens visit this site! As for the favourites, it comes from the same stats package. I assume each time someone does it, the browser makes a note of it. The number does seem high, so I'm not sure of it, but it might also reflect those using Firefox's live updates etc. I agree they seem high, but it flatters my ego, and that's what this is all about!

Richard likely gets more visitors, but you'd need to ask him.

Thanks. I remember Echo once saying in a comment that TPD has 1,500 visitors. Anyway, 1,500/1,700 are both good for a China-related site I think.

BTW, I popped out this morning (in Guangzhou) and passed a few petrol stations with amazingly long queues. The driver told me what what going on. There's a story in today's SCMP called "Petrol supplies are suspended or reduced" which explains. Interesting.

Hope you're going to crack on with your economy posts. Me and a couple of mates are standing by. Also found a new China economy blog called Survived Sars. The guy mainly writes about the Yuan exchange rate. It's worth checking out.

Oh, that Survived Sars site is here:
