As you may or may not know, I maintain a log of download numbers for various files I offer (don’t worry, there’s no personal information recorded – just the fact that a download occurred). It’s kinda useful to know, for instance, how many active users of a widget there are, or whether something that I posted for a specific individual has been retrieved.
Now, one of the files I had up was an archive of some pictures of me and some mates on holiday (it’s gone now, so no need to search for it to find my ugly mug). There were only six people who knew about that archive, including me. Now, assuming that everyone who knew about it downloaded it, that’s 6 downloads. Imagine my surprise to note that there were considerably more than that. Sort of creepy to know that random people downloaded those pictures. I can only assume that it was in error. Fortunately, I don’t do anything interesting enough for those pictures to be embarrassing 😉
