Good news. In Italy there is still a certain interest for the Amiga-like platforms as stated by the 10.000 visits which Pegasos-Italia site (Miky'060) received in less than a year, and celebrated some days ago. Congratulations Miky. It is a great result for an italian site featuring amiga-like products since the demise of CBM.
I hope also that AmigaOne and Pegasos producers will not leave italian market alone.
In places where is still an Amiga community, loyal fans and potential buyers, there are opportunities for a great profit.

Hmmm... so Milky got 10.000 (ten point zero zero zero) visits in less than 12 months. Less than 1 a month!!! Is that good for Italian Amiga sites? Was that the same person visiting 10 times or 10 different individuals? ;-)

In reply to Comment 1 (Darrin):
Dunno.

But I think it is not probablesituation.


I visited Pegasos-Italia less than a week ago and I personally read 9988 visits on the public counter.

So I made a phone call to Miky who get astonished.

Busy into other activities he had not checked his site-stats from a very long time (and also he had problems on the phone line from over than a month. And this fact forced him to use a 56k modem instead of his ASDL connection).


Maybe after he had received my call, he could had made some "personal" visits to his site, in order to reach magical 10.000 visits number.

But I don't believe such a behaviour from Miky, because I know him personally.


At least if a site from you could had reached 9988 visits...

...Then will you had falsed the stats to reach 10.000 in a shorter time, instead to wait for usual visitors?

Mah...

However I can assure you that last time I visited Pegasos Italia Site I was 10007 visitor.

I saved also whole page in a file to keep it as a memory, a proof to say Miky: «Hey. I am of that number!».

And because I like such a number which contains 007 in it.
It is a Lucky number. :lol:

Darrin is talking about how numbers are written differently in English, compared to the SI system and the rest of the world.

In English:
"10.000" = ten and zero thousandths ("ten point zero zero zero")
"10,000" = ten thousand

For the rest of us:
"10 000" (SI writing style) or "10.000" = ten thousand
"10,000" = ten and zero thousandths ("ten comma zero zero zero")

"so Milky got 10.000" That is ten thousands, at least in EU countries ;) And it is Miky, not Milky, btw.

No probs Itix.

Miky used to be Milky'060 sometimes as second nickname on other sites.

10000 visits is not nesessarily the same as 10000 visitors. I would not be surprised if there actually is something like 100-200 users who visit that same site.

Eg. AmigaWorld.net has 2547 registered users, if every users would visit the site atleast 4 times, then it's already more than 10000 visits.

What I'm saying is that this is not really any big news.

During this whole year, I visited Pegaso-Italia site almost ten times (max 15 times) mainly when I knew of news or upgrades of the site directly from Miky.

I think that correct number of visitors lays between 1000 and 5000 persons.

2500 seems to me a more realistic number.

And making a calculation in my mind, I believe that 1000 could be considered as "users", other 1000 as simply visitors and cyclic curious people (who check the site with regular intervals of time), and remaining 500 were only curious attracted by the existence of an italian link into Pegasos pages worldwide.

In reply to Comment 6 (Anonymous):
it depends also from the contents... if it's a news site or just a
istitutional one... in the second case 10000 it's not a bad number, but
if some interesting content is shown there could be lots of visits more..

in some cases, like presence at Amiga shows, my site (www.lightelements.com/asa) got thousands of visits (read pages shown not
unique visitors!) in just one day (example 4962 visits may 7th 2004) a figure
far away from the real average visits....

other thing to be considered: if not filtered out by the counters and if
sites are very big (lot of pages) also search engine visits (like google.bot)
can boost visits up to more hits than real visitors....

Thanks for clearing up my little joke for the others. :-)

Out of interest, if I wanted to write 10,000.99 in the SI system then how would that look? 10.000.99? 10.000,99? Just wondering...

I'm not too sure about the "rest of the world" bit either. Everywhere I've been (5 Continents) has used what you refer to as the "English" system. I even lived in Germany for 6 and a half years and my bank statements from the local bank used "xx,xxx.xx"... Perhaps they just made special ones for us Brits so it wouldn't confuse us, eh? ;-)

Thanks for that. I think the "English" system makes more sense :-)

In reply to Comment 11 (Darrin):
When money enters the picture everything gets even more confusing and inconsistent! Colons, underscores, dashes, superscript...
Things like "SI", "English" or "the rest of the world" no longer apply, you'll be lucky to see the same style of writing in two shops on the same street in some places. :)

Also, just because one style is how it "should be" or is recommended in one place or language doesn't mean that everyone will bother doing so, or even know about it - as this English newsitem is an example of.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SI#SI_writing_style

The big question is when you transatlantic chaps will grab yourselves by the hair and pull yourselves out of the dark ages and start using SI units? As long as NASA uses the same units as stubbornly anachronistic fishmongers use, things WILL go wrong! ;)

LOL. I know what you mean. I have a daily battle with "American" English and "English" English. Of course, global "standardisation" could result in us all being forced to use Windows!!! ;-)

The characteristics of a community portal is of course completely different than this website. A community discussion board you visit daily, some people visit it hourly, and you generate some kind of hit whenever you make a comment in a discussion, which tends to be pretty often on some sites. But this is not a forum! This is a site where you go to get information about a product, the Pegasos! And another thing, the amigaworld.net is a global site in English, the Pegasos Italia is much more narrow with its italian language.

So I actually think this is kind of impressive! Congratulations! :-)

10,98 should be the same as 10.98, at least software wise...
