Mangle

Statistics: January 2004

A log is kept of the options and results for each random search. I wrote a small program to analyse everything based on the data from the past month.

August was the first month with a custom word option, where you can specify a word you always want included in the search terms. I exluded these searches from these stats, as they would greatly influence the results.

** Note that the site wortschatz.uni-leipzig.de contains a 10000+ word list of the english language, and so this page is generally found if an odd combination of rarely used words are used in the search.
