We've just archived Volume 10, Number 2 of Photo Corners on the Archive page with 15 Features, 15 commented News stories, 25 Editor's Notes (which included 156 items of interest) and three site notes for a total of 58 stories.

We published 95 images among 21 of those stories, as well as two obituaries.

FEBRUARY IS A SHORT MONTH by a few days and our readership numbers reflect that. The slight dips in unique sites and pages delivered reflect those missing two or three days.

On a bright note, daily visits were actually up a bit.

On a bright note, daily visits were actually up a bit.

Among the leading stories, we were amused to see the first four were our Around The Horn pieces. They were followed by our feature Vacant Lot and our slide show of Local Variables.

Another Horn followed them before our news item on the World Photo Awards and our feature Free on some discards we ran across.

Tenth place was held by yet another Horn, which is fine by us. It's the front page around here, curating the day's developments in photography.

OUR MOVE TO UTF8 ENCODING wasn't quite as smooth behind the scenes as we expected. The Perl script that turns our prose and pictures into HTML wasn't looking for that encoding so we had to tweak it as the month went along and we ran into one tricky translation or another. It amounted to a minor inconvenience. And a temporary one at that.

Our site indexing, which we do every six hours for Google, also ran into a hitch when our service provider changed the structure of our site a tiny bit. But we've figured out that little glitch too.

The observant will note we didn't publish a single review this month. That does sometimes happen, whether we like it or not.

But we do have a few sticks in the review fire. So stay tuned!
