The Transition Continues

I was looking for a new stats supplier because Sitemeter apparently doesn’t have provisions for SSL secured sites, and ran across IPnoid, which doesn’t either, but whose front page reminded me of all the metadata that gets sucked up by the various page counters. I have decided that I don’t really care, and will just remove Sitemeter and Feedjit when it is time to reduce the cookie overload that people are under.

I was checking on I Can Has Cheezburger? to see what I could do about my favorite LOLs, and discovered that they have already made the matter moot by changing their file system. None of my existing links to their content work anymore. That certainly wasn’t a very friendly thing to do to those of us that followed their rules, and used their code for linking.

Le Tour 100 – Stage 4

Tour de FranceNice

Distance: 25 kilometers.

Stage four is the team time trials. The time awarded is that of the fifth rider on the team to cross the finish line.

With 72 of the riders trailing the leader by a second, expect some major changes in the standings after this stage. Sky does extremely well at team time trials, and RadioShack-Leopard only has a one second lead over the other teams.

Orica-GreenEdge took it and have a three second lead over Sky. This handed the Yellow to Simon Gerrans.

There is no stage winner or Combative awarded for this stage.
