wow - interesting stats. Thx for compiling.

Btw, I was randomly going to mention 'm eating TimTams for the first time, then I realised u're Aussie!

They r truly delicious!

It's an amazing what a letter to 7days can do. An Aussie wrote in ages ago asking where he can get timtams from so I got curious.

Pls give me an award for most random comment of the day.

timtams are so the best..esp the dark chocolate one...must remind myself to get some tonight! timtams here i come!

i*maginate said...

anon, I've just polished off 7 in a row!

They are so delicious! The first bite I was thinking what's so special about these things? The excitement starts just 2/3rds into the bite when the choc melts and the biscuit crumbles.

If TimTam corporation is reading this pls pay me a %

or I'm going to be checking out


Anybody from Emirates Airlines reading this pls provide me with a free ticket to Silverwater NSW in Oz

Brilliant compliations Mr Sam :) Hey, Q - often, I access UAECB via my blackberry. Does such views show up?

rosh said...

Oh BTW, this post is soooo much better for the mind/body and soul, compared to the one below :) So thank you for this :)

i*maginate said...

rosh, it's a refreshing change, spesh with a box of timtams. yum!

nzm said...

Sam: Good stats although the number of posts including drafts is highly inflated at the moment due to what appears to be a glitch in the UAE Community blog "Edit Posts" pages.

Some posts have multiple draft copies also saved which can only be cleaned up by the original author or by the blog mods.

It seems that each time an automatic save of the blog post is performed by Blogger, a new post/draft is created.


i*maginate: Not only are the TimTam biscuits delicious, but the TV ads are pretty good too!

The only way to eat a TimTam

Graham Norton gets shown how to eat them by Natalis Imbruglia!

nzm: this is an error (perhaps deliberate so multiple copies are always available?) with blogger/etisalat; i'm not sure it happens from other countries, but when writing posts blogger claims to lose its connection and so a draft seems to saved. I might take a look through and see if I can delete a few.

samuraisam said...

nzm: although I can mass-select all the drafted posts; I cannot delete them all at once. Even so I'm not sure going through each one and deleting them all is a worthwhile practice as the only persons disk space we're wasting is google's and so far there is no limit on the number of posts (AFAIK).

samuraisam said...

Total number of published posts is 2575; am updating post to reflect this.

rosh: blackberry views aren't counted AFAIK.

nzm said...

Sam Understood! Yes, that same error happens to me when posting from Oz, so it's not an IP problem.

However, the multiple saves of the one post doesn't happen with this error when it occurs with the other 2 blogs that I post to - it only seems to happen for me with the UAECB.

Go figure!

i*maginate said...

Dear nzm - sorry for the late response. Would love to check out the links when I have a better connection to watch youtube. I live in the 4th world! hehe. See u soon, and thx again ;-)
