Another Busy Day – 2500 Page Views and about 500 Unique Visitors on the second day – Openmtbmap.org Italy published.

- Open Mountainbike Maps for Italy published —

It has not been so busy today compared to yesterday, but many people floded this site nonetheless. The maps were downloaded over 110 times. So not as many people as yesterday (somehow the time of my statistic page is wrong – the yesterday count went up to 5000 page views and 700 unique visitors) but still many many mountainbikers interested in high quality maps. Great

I got behind the problem of the Swiss maps not being compatible with Mapsource 6.15.4 (been using an old program) but now it’s fine. Actually I only need to do one click now to update a map. Only getting maps done the first time really takes time. Except for Germany the maps compile with reasonable speed, so I will add some countries. Italy is just being generated and France comes too.

This weekend I gotta work elsewhere, so from tomorrow evening no more updates till Sunday we (Tom, Watzlaf and me) need to test some new raxski prototypes, so no new features will be added anymore over the weekend.

600+ Visitors on first day, Sponsor for webspace and Germany will be up soon

Hello everyone, what a day! I did not even get to mountainbike today. Been occupied with this site and automating the map generation (plus some improvements) the whole day.

I did expect maybe 100 visits today, but not 600+ (mainly during the last 12 hours). I don’t think many other websites put up privately get that many people on the first day….. Had I known this I would have improved the page design a bit more before posting on forums (mtb-news.de, naviboard.de, naviuser.at) about this site. I feel quite ashamed about the mess the site is in…

Without help by mtb-news.de for hosting the files and the offer by DomainBox.de to give me free webspace for uploading the mapsets for you I bet this site would have been taken down already by my filehoster. (I decided for a €3.33 offer with 1GB, unlimited traffic – were you can be more or less sure that they either block your sites until next month or get rid of you according to what I read in forums about them once you get to around 25-30gig traffic per month).

Right now my CPU is running hot compiling Germany. I think it will be uploaded […]
