Your Neighbour's Cough

Have you ever visited your personal physician, and instructed him
My neighbour has the same cough as I have. Her doctor prescribed xxxxxxxx medicine. I want a prescription for xxxxxxx.
Hopefully, not. Your doctor, if he has any professional capability, will know that a smoker's cough (in your 80 year old neighbour) won't be treated the same way as an influenza infection (in you).

Also hopefully, your doctor spends some time reading about what disease level is normal, in the population, at any time.

If you go to him with a complaint, he'll possibly know

This has been going around for a few weeks. Go home, drink plenty of fluids (no alcohol please), and get plenty of rest. Come back in 2 weeks, if you're not feeling better.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
