Last post by buster - Today at 09:49:00 AM
Over the last 12 hours, 9:30 PM to 9:30 AM, the leading story for so long, Further Adventures, had zero views.

The once unpopular Unpleasant Computer Problem had 45 views, and is now at 17,732. It was written very close to three years ago.

Further Adventures was written 4.5 years ago and appears to be getting no views at all, and is now 5,500 views behind.

I still suspect Cynthia and Bertha. But you might be right Bill. The AI could have a software glitch.

Good one! :-)
Maybe it is a Google AI robot or another AI robot, that likes to keep reading the post. :-)


Quote from: buster on February 27, 2024, 12:33:05 PMMost of my stories gather a few hits every once in a while, but the relatively unpopular one, "The Really Unpleasant Computer Problem", has suddenly become the most popular of all the  stories. No idea why but it recently jumped into the lead and has more than 17,000 hits, and a few thousand of these came in maybe the last 3 weeks. The leader for months or years is now 5000 behind.

General Discussion has 3 of my stories leading in popularity, and 4 of the first 7 threads are stories. All together the stories have or are nearing about 50,000 hits.

The mystery is why now, and why that story. Unless Cynthia Fulltop and Bertha Softbottom are sending out links

This particular story seems to be getting about 20 views per day. I expect it will reach 18,000 soon. The other stories are not doing this. The question is why now? In views it has passed every story, after sitting in last place, and opened a considerable margin.

Weird, but I'll try to view it optimistically.

Fridays are as good as any. Our days are organized by need, not in any particular way. We needed food to put on the table last Friday. And I had the van on Thursday.

OK, no interest in a meetup for tomorrow, Friday, so maybe I will try again later in the Spring time.

I was following the thread because I tend to check all new posts. The post by Bill I believe made we wonder why someone would read that thread.
