Oops, 7 Days. Hey look I don't update on weekends.

Statistics by Country, Please

Someone posted a URL here that went to a really cool website that had 100's of statistics ranked by country - everything from energy use to crime to libraries to, you name it.

I can't find the URL here anymore, and Googling didnt work out. If whomever posted it could repost it I would surely appreciate it.

This sounds like the sort of information the CIA would be interested in. You can go to their web site, http://www.cia.gov and click the link to World Factbook which will give you a page listing dozens of facts and statistics about every country on planet Earth, even the smallest.

The number of statistics are in the dozens, not hundreds, so you may be thinking of another site.

Interesting. Both links read "http://www.nationmaster.com/index.php" in Mozilla's down left corner, but one doesn't work.

>>> but one doesn't work. <<<

Take a close look at the underline. You'll notice that one extends to the right beyond the end of the URL. There is a non-printing character that will be taken as part of the URL if you click on it.

This is long standing bug in JoS.

Guilty as charged m'lud, it's a fair cop, I done the blag.

However, if you hit the "here" button on the 404 you get where you wanted to go.
