Gas station without pumps

Spike in views on Monday

I had double my normal readership on Monday 18 Sept 2017, which surprised me as I had not put out any posts recently.  I checked the statistics and found that the bump was mainly from one post: Engineering vs. Science, which got 173 views on Monday and 185 all week.  The referrals were from classroom.google.com, so apparently someone required reading the post for a class—I’ve no idea who, as the classroom links are somewhat anonymous (I have links, but would need to be in the class to follow them).

Because of that class assignment, the  Engineering vs. Science post is my most viewed site this week and this month, though not for the quarter—three others still beat it:

It always surprises me which of my posts become the most popular.  The top 10 for the past year were

Home page / Archives 20,144
Where you get your BS in CS matters 1,775
Making WAV files from C programs 1,655
Tools and parts list for Applied Electronics W2017 and S2017 1,387
Algorithmic vs. Computational thinking 986
Sum of probabilities in log-prob space 706
How many AP courses are too many? 687
Journals for high school researchers 565
Getting text from Amazon’s “Look Inside” 547
Pressure sensor with air pump 435

The “home page” hits are large because all new posts read by subscribers get counted there. The next 9 are all posts with original content by me (unlike some of my all-time most-viewed posts, which were mainly pointers to other things on the web).
