WordPress.com changes Analytics

WP.com made a cool change to WP- Stats , its default analytics program, It now counts visitors as well as visits. This is especially useful to writers like me who like to customize content based on analytics ( GA Analytics does not work on WordPress.com hosted sites) and who dont want to bother with hosting /hacking (WP.com is much more hassle free than self-hosted , or even Rackspace hosted in my experience).

Of course the guy DOS-ing my poetry blog (via Yahoo Image Service) needs to use Tor to hide. Unless they dont want to hide and just want to click on my Roses poem 200 times (passing a subliminal message?) . Of course GA Analytics loves line charts and WP Stats loves Bar Charts, but we wont get into that.

The White Man's Burden-Poem

Rudyard Kipling, The White Man’s Burden

Take up the White Man’s burden–Send forth the best ye breed–

Go bind your sons to exile To serve your captives’ need;

To wait in heavy harness, On fluttered folk and wild–

Your new-caught, sullen peoples, Half-devil and half-child.

Take up the White Man’s burden–In patience to abide,

To veil the threat of terror And check the show of pride;

By open speech and simple, An hundred times made plain

To seek another’s profit, And work another’s gain.

Take up the White Man’s burden– The savage wars of peace–

Fill full the mouth of Famine And bid the sickness cease;

And when your goal is nearest The end for others sought,

Watch sloth and heathen Folly Bring all your hopes to nought.

Take up the White Man’s burden–No tawdry rule of kings,

But toil of serf and sweeper–The tale of common things.

The ports ye shall not enter,The roads ye shall not tread,

Go mark them with your living,And mark them with your dead.

Take up the White Man’s burden–And reap his old reward:

The blame of those ye better,The hate of those ye guard–

The cry of hosts ye humour (Ah, slowly!) toward the light:–

“Why brought he us from bondage, Our loved Egyptian night?”

Take up the White Man’s burden–Ye dare not stoop to less–

Nor call too loud on Freedom To cloke your weariness;

By all ye cry or whisper, By all ye leave or do,

The silent, sullen peoples Shall weigh your gods and you.

Take up the White Man’s burden– Have done with childish days–

The lightly proferred laurel, The easy, ungrudged praise.

Comes now, to search your manhood Through all the thankless years

Cold, edged with dear-bought wisdom, The judgment of your peers!

This famous poem, written by Britain‘s imperial poet, was a response to the American take over of the Phillipines after the Spanish-American War.(published in 1899)
