QiSoftware Gadgets...

QiSoftware development efforts include a lot of gadgets and gizmos that can be incorporated into web pages and blog sidebars. One of my latest gadgets, this applet:




I am known for using a lot of server side Java, however in this case-- all the functionality is contained within the Java applet and requires no server side interface.

Do you need a similar interface? Contact consulting@qisoftware.com to see if we can help you with your requirements.

Exploitable PHP Scripts:: Hosting-Q Has Solutions

Popular today-- PHP/MySQL applications that are provided in web hosting packages as free programs. Examples include phpBB, WordPress, and ImageGallery.

These programs are a good deal and very popular. The problem -- they are so popular that many look for ways to exploit the many installations. That is why developers of these programs are constantly issuing new releases.

This is a pain in the neck for both web hosting organizations and those that use the programs. Web hosting organizations know-- their servers are at risk, if their clients do not update their versions of the scripts in a timely manner. Users do not want to update their versions of the program because they may have had cosmetic changes implemented and do not want to clobber any enhancements with the updates.

Unless you are on your own server or a private server-- the scripts should be updated. Hosting-Q understands this. We want to provide safe updates for your existing programs-- ensuring our servers remain at optimal performance levels and your applications continue to run smoothly.

How can we provide this service? We are a small outfit. I am a software consultant-- and I wish to stay in business. I cannot afford to not provide this service.

Let Hosting-Q take the headache out of keeping your business or blogging site safe and operational.

April 1, 2007 QiSoftware.com Site Stats

On April Fool's Day [yesterday] I had [Average Daily] 1354 hits to the main area on qisoftware.com. Q's Wire... resides in this area. This blog, WiredPages and the forums reside on their own sub-domains. Comparatively speaking-- the statistics are pretty amazing in that the first day of April garnered more than a third-- of the total hits for all of Nov 2006. Nonsense-- misread report. See the number of sites-- still good for one day. Site stats taken seconds after midnight with the previous day's stats factored in and very low. Not a good indicator this early in the month.

[Anyone in Washington want to take credit for their mistake[s]?] I completely screwed up in reading those charts-- only hurt me. I make mistakes-- rdt [April 3, 2007]. Do you?


The statistics look off for Jan and Feb 2007-- because they were not updated nightly and the log files were deleted. All has been corrected.

I have begun to promote WiredPages and the associated WiredPages business directory and quite frankly-- I am surprised at the burst of traffic that is directed at Q's Wire... and not the other areas.

Keep in mind-- I believe my site stats have routinely been reported lower than the actual sums. [The new web host seems to make a difference.] Alexa and other ranking sites appear to be using the lower totals. Maybe things are beginning to correct themselves. Will Alexa?

Last month Q's Wire... had about 2500 hits to the xml feed alone. The other feeds--> rss and rss2 had a lot of hits a well. This is for only the one blog and there is another [this one]. It does not include traffic to WiredPages, the main business site-- nor the forums.

I have seen sites with only a blog-- with an Alexa ranking that would amaze. Why? It appears they have a lot of links [blogrolls] on their sidebar. Are they getting hits?

SEO numbers for qisoftware.com-- [see here] are good at 98%, so this does not appear to be the problem. I also have a key term associated with the site-- "Blogger Calendar".

QiSoftware.com is ranked incorrectly. Why?

The numbers for April 1, 2007-- look about right. I think however, someone is going to claim an April Fool's joke.
