Wut Happind?

Blog data is funny stuff. It always amazes me what blogs continue to generate the most traffic. The Phytophactor blog generates a modest amount of traffic, somewhere around 250,000 page reads a year. Something like 85% of that is the result of google searches and most of the rest comes from my dear readers and from other FoS blogs. But then funny things happen and you never know what. Here's yesterday's blog traffic graphed by the hour, pretty normal, pretty typical, until 5 PM when the number of page reads jumped almost 5 fold, a data blip. A sudden interest in artichokes or flat white coffee? Impossible to say with the crude analytics TPP has at his disposal.
