Another Blog, Meanwhile Index

You know everybody was happy when the index was sitting at 100. That’s exactly where it started, and then yes we all got a little loopy when it was sitting way above 100 for so long. And everyone was feeling so bad when it dropped below 100 that I thought traders were going to call the whole thing off without losing anything. But no, they had to carry on and now they dropped ten points in the one day. It could be worse, it could be down twelve or even thirteen points but still. Oh, this is just reporting for the alternate index, but you know this whole plan to separate the main and the alternate indices isn’t doing anything for anybody, right?

Statistics Saturday: Countries Which Have Sent Me A Prime Number Of Visitors This Past Quarter-Year


A quarter of a year (91 days) is not prime, but what can you do? Calendar reform hasn’t been a going concern since the 1930s.

Country Prime Number of Visitors
Argentina 2
Australia 17
Austria 5
Brazil 2
Chile 2
Colombia 3
Cyprus 2
Denmark 2
Finland 3
France 3
Greece 5
Indonesia 3
Italy 2
Macedonia, the Former Yugoslav Republic 2
Malaysia 2
Malta 2

New Zealand 3
Pakistan 3
Romania 2
Russian Federation 2
Turkey 7

Somehow I had always imagined myself to have a more composite relationship with Malta and Malaysia. Australia feels about right.
