There are 950 entries in this blog. Of those, 687 are blogs posts, and 263 are social updates.
There are 247 images in the filesystem, 154 of which appear in actual posts.

Every post on this blog
You're seeing this blog, powered by Ode, through the magic of the Perl programming language and the Common Gateway Interface. Also involved: the Apache web server and Linux operating system.
Ode does not use a database to store content. Instead, every entry exists on the web server as a "flat" text file.
Comments are managed via Disqus, integrated through the work of Ode project leader Rob Reed.
Update: Thanks to Rob Reed for his help on the Counter addin, which provides the new (as of August 5, 2015) post-count feature seen above.
