1% now what percentage from Oz, including transient visitors but excluding Andrew and I, with a heavier weighting to people from the West?

1 % sounds quite less.I find a lot of postings from India (or India sub-continent)

Good observation!

Even I feel that JavaRanch community has a very high percentage of Indian population. I can hardly see 1 Indian name in 10 posts at Sun Java Forums...

Anyways, both forums are nice places to be in and it really doesn't matter from which country you post from as long as you are a Java Dude, that's what matters

Good observation!

I've often wondered about the high percentage of Indian sounding names here, but you explained it perfectly

if you click on that blue globe-thingy at the bottom of every page, you can surf around and find visitors by country (based on domain name). it shows about 9.72% of the visitors have a .in domain.

for whatever that's worth.

Note that 17.19% are "Unknown." These are primarily visitors from the future, using domains that have not yet been implemented in the present.

If I am not wrong, you are getting this �.in� domain of proxy or ISPs.

But many companies (I think, all MNCs) have their proxy situated in some other country, so in that case, will you still get �.in�???

If not then this statistics can�t be considered even approximate, because IMO, 99.9 % people accessing this site are working, and out of those good percentage of peoples are employed by MNCs only...

My gut feeling says, it�s more than 20%.

Agreed by Rathi, But my guess is some how more then Rathi. it is around 47.59% Indians.

Isn't it ???

Wait are you guys talking about the number of people accesing this site from India? or the number of Indians accesing this site? The only way to find out the latter would be actually to go thru the javaranch database look at each name and try to ascertain if the name was indian. My personal guess is the number of indians accessing this site might constitute 84.5823% of the population here at the ranch. (Dont know why but its the first number that came to mind). Whats disturbing though is the number of people using MSIE to log on. Now that needs to be rectified. Of some interest to people that may wonder where theology and technology actually meet(and there may be quite a few of you out there who may be losing sleep over this), well its here on the ranch, there are also a few visits from the .va domain. .

Many people still believe that Antarctica is a frozen wasteland. But in fact, it's a surprisingly temperate continent with rich cultural traditions.

This is a joke isnt it? I almost ended up believing this. For a moment I thought igloos actually come equipped with an internet connection.

Okay I just checked There are no native inhabitants over there.

* Antarctica has no native human inhabitants. About 900 people brave the six months of extreme cold and permanent darkness in winter to operate the 34 scientific stations. This number increases to 3 000 people during the summer months. By contrast, 2 million people live within the Arctic in the northern hemisphere.

So I guess the penguin theory is true. I bet theyre using a Linux OS

But this is where I live. Are you suggesting that we did not invent "photography in 1500 B.C., moving pictures in 19 B.C., radio in 800 A.D., and television in 1340 A.D."?

Not to mention, it's evident that they must have sent out a colony in North America around the 12th century AD. How else could we explain the remarkable similarities between the ruins at Mimosa and the Cliff Palace at Mesa Verde? Henceforth, we should probably refer to the Pueblo peoples as Native Antarctic-Americans in deference to this heritage.

were not focusing here, The point is there has been an access from the Antartic and we should be able to find out who and why? This is a classic case of who dunnit? if we narrow down who could actually be living there so far weve got:
1. Penguins
2. polar Bears
3. Santa Clause
4.someone in this thread who has made a home of antartica and trying to throw us a curveball to lead everyone astray.

Maybe I should clarify...

I actually live deep inside the Earth (about 10 miles from the core). The portal I use is in Antarctica.
