Happy B-day to Blogging.Gelle.dk

24th of April 2005 – 3 years ago – I started blogging here. Back then I started blogging and did it in Danish because I was going to do an internship in US for one year and wanted an easy way to keep a travel journey and keep friends and family updated. About August 2006 I switched to English since I was moving back to Denmark and I decided to leave it at that. Check the archive if you want to see previous posts.

Blogging Gelle stats

I have made 207 posts so thats 1.3 post per week. My stats only go back to 15th November 2005 but since then the site has had 29,323 visits. 10,810 of these were on the post about running a company using free office products online. It ended up on the frontpage of digg.com and sent my server to its knees. Apart from that spike I average about 20-30 visits per day – which I am very satisfied with :)

Photo-op

I started using Flickr at the same time. Above is the first picture there which is from my graduation from Aalborg University June 2005. Since then I have uploaded 5,226 pictures or 33.5 picture per week. My most viewed picture on Flickr is the guy with the grillz. My most interestingnessed picture is a panorama of the Big House in Ann Arbor.

Update 29th: Ulrik just pointed me towards this nifty timeline tool :)


Prague beer prices

Working in Prague

The good guys of the Prague search site Nelso has made an invaluable resource for people on the hunt cheap beer in Prague. The beer price heatmap shows the prices on beer at more than 250 bars in Prague. As I understand the underlying technology they have used a meteorological predictions based on the points to create the map – very cool. I guess that is also why all of Letna Park is expensive because of the 90czk beer at Hanavsky pavilion.

By the way – the sweaty beer on the picture is a 0,5L Staropramen at 59czk from Cafe Savoy which puts it in the red.

There is also a Danish edition for Øl i Prag.
