    Posted on March 9, 2011 by Lee Whitfield in News.

    I was looking at the website stats the other day and thought that there may be some people out there that would find the stats interesting so I’m publishing them for your review. I’m not a statistician by any means so if anyone has any insight as to what they get from these please let me know in the comments.
