So I'm checking our viewer's browser statistics for NintendoPlayers.com (http://www.nintendoplayers.com/) and I hit something weird.

Here's our top five browsers.

Browser Type Number of requests
1. Mozilla 330,790
2. MSIE 247,778
3. Opera 36,056
4. msnbot 7,185
5. Netscape (compatible) 5,620


As I keep going down, I get to the bottom of the list.


17. psbot 59
18. I am using a browser and OS so new and innovative that you will never have heard of it. If I told you what it is, it would only be a tease. 43
19. WebTV 37
20. N900iS DoCoMo 33


Notice number 18.

Anyone have any idea what browser that is?

Also, I feel sorry for the 37 WebTV viewers.

Yeah, my first thought was that someone just had their browser modified to tell the site that, but then I saw the number 43.

i don't believe they are hits. i think its showing unique users.

yeah but how many ISPs provide static IP #'s?

GFLPraxis

If it's unique, then we must have a very regular viewer, because dynamic IP's don't change THAT fast. The site has only been open about two months.

Even if isn't unique viewers, that's quite a few views.

There's 62 browsers not listed, interestingly.

It could just be one very, very regular viewer, I suppose.
Maybe I'll ask on our forums.

Or maybe someone is developing some kind of new self-proclaimed innovative browser. Maybe... a DS homebrew browser...well, it would make sense, as one of our writers came over from DSLinux.org and knows plenty of people there and put the link in his sig.

It's me.

I'm using OS XII (.3).

It's the year 2031, and I'm in Central Park, browsing your site with the integrated screens of my sunglasses (Yes, all of OS XII is installed on them too, as they can project onto walls, or larger screens).

It's just someone 'browser-spoofing', changing the name that their browser sends to the server when it requests a page. I get hits from tons of custom browser names, like "I-am", "Expletive You", "Something Else", and so on. People like to mess with things and skew browser results. Just ignore them.

you can force your cable modem to get a new ip by manually changing the mac address for the router and rebooting the modem... heh at least it works on time warner.. so its likely the same person...
