Out of the Blue

I mentioned yesterday that the new search function for the forums is far more feature-rich than the search function for the rest of the site. No longer, as Frans continues to beat Blammo into a properly submissive state, and now the same helpful Boolean search is live for the news articles here. Huzzah and kudos!

Hey Blue, do you have a way to monitor which links get hit the most? It occurred to me that in the last 10 years, i've only clicked links in the hardware review section, maybe 2 dozen times. After seeing a section not get touched (relatively speaking), do you do away with it or do you just continue on since it's not based on sales but your own decisions?

not that i'm looking at you doing away with the hardware section, i just wonder if "times" dictate what people click and thus, you post.

I don't believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in duct tape.
