It was another busy weekend... Site News
If you're in the USA or Canada and have been gone on a nice extended weekend due to yesterday's holiday, you have some reading to do -- we have published 45 hints since Friday! So start reading and see what you missed while you were out ... there are only five new hints this morning as I've run out of posting time, so hopefully that will give you all a chance to catch up.

On a semi-related story, macosxhints' reader David P. sent along an interesting screenshot:
This shot was snapped on the stats page, which I'll be the first to admit I seldom look at ... but 10,000,000 is sort of an eye-opener. These hits are not the same "hits" as recorded by a webserver; these are database server hits only. In other words, there have been 10,000,000 requests made to the database since we went live in early November of 2000! Probably not an impressive number on the global scale of database driven websites, but it seems pretty big to me!

With all of those requests over the nearly two year period, I have never lost any data due to database problems (just due to site owner stupidity, but that's a story for another day!) ... thank you, MySQL!

Just adding this so it's stored in the database somewhere, but 20,000,000 database hits was reached sometime on Sunday, March 23rd, 2003.
