In-House Notes--- The statistical engine for Ivan's Blog compiles anonymous user statistics and tells me things like which web sites are directing visitors to my web site, and which countries people are in when they're loading Ivan's Blog.

Once per month, I will list the ten countries that have provided Ivan's Blog with the most page views in the previous month. The top ten countries for May 2005 were (in order from one to ten) the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, Japan, the Netherlands, Germany, Brazil, Singapore, and India.

With the month of June coming to a close, India has fallen out of the top ten and has been replaced in the top ten by France.

Most notable of all is that June was the first recorded month in which the top three countries were not the same countries in the same order (United States, Great Britain, and Canada). Canada and Great Britain fell to #4 and #5, respectively, while Australia jumped up to #2 and Japan jumped up to #3.
