    Log Statiscs, how I love log statistics.

    It’s really cool you do this list, even though I may not be active as a reader, poster or answered in these forums, I alway think it’s great when people get their "props" in a page, even better when that page is programatically generated.

  2. MSDNArchive says:

    One of our goals is to get these stats generated automatically onto the live site. I hope we can squeeze that into the fall.

  3. Interesting about Web Services having such a low and slow response rate. It’s at the core of .NET strategy. On the other hand, this forum is very specific and the questions, as detailed as they are, require a whole host of mastered details.

    I would ask then, how do these numbers match with certifications – are few taking and passing Web services in relation to the other areas? Is it the least chosen optional exam taken?
