Sales may drop for many reasons (public holidays, end of financial year rush, natural disasters, tax time, etc..) The great thing is they always pop back up (you can’t really expect similar sales on every day of the year, that’s just silly)

Best to stop worrying about it and just release more high quality files.

you could try:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)$ /pages/$1.php
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)/$ /pages/$1.php
you could also try my favorite:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ rewrite.php [L,QSA]
and inside rewrite.php you do all the calculations as to what file or files you need to include or run (eg: maybe initialize a database script before including /pages/foo.php)

Yer, travelling time can be a killer.

From Sydney you could probably do the casual 2 day (or pushing it overnight) drive south to Melbourne. There’s a zoo and some attractions/parks/cafes in the city. Lovely city (except some parts at night). South of Melb driving down on the mornington perninsula can be a great day trip / overnight trip. West of Melb is the famous great ocean road. You could probably go see it as a day trip from melbourne. Cold/unpredictable weather some parts of the year.

From Sydney you could probably also do the casual 2 day (or pushing it overnight) drive north to the Gold Coast (beaches, versace, theme parks). If you do the Gold Coast theme park/beach thing you can also drive 2 hours further north through Brisbane to Australia Zoo ( steve irwins place – crocodiles etc.. ). Usually nice warm weather.

Keep in mind that what you drive in the short 2 days can be easily done in 6 months with a caravan – there is just so much to see and do if you have the time!

A flight north to Cairns should be a consideration. Heading up to the lovely palm cove with a unit on the beach and booking a boat/snorkel tour out around the reef. Catching the train up the mountain to the rainforest and the skyrail back down (kuranda). Pretty much always hot.

If you come in whale season jump out on a boat anywhere they offer it (if it’s good weather). Most places generally guarantee a sighting during the season. Can be really good or just a few splashes on the horizon depending on what mood they’re in.

If you get offered roo meat or crocodile meat, give it a whirl. It’s great!

Hope you enjoy your visit ! Use http://maps.google.com.au for directions and to see how long it takes to drive between places.

Watch out for snakes and those crazy kids riding kangaroos down the street all day.

weird numerical sequence for an upgrade… 1.7 to 1.10 …

usualy 1.7 = 1.70

so 1.7>1.10

yerp but not with software. it would be incredibly hard to time / number each software releases to eventually land on an even number for the next major version. so it’s easier to just go 1.7, 1.8, 1.9, 1.10, 1.11, 1.12, 2.0 (wp does this too)

Well one of the problems is that the referral doesn’t always work. I’ve tested it out myself,

I do not think testing it yourself is wise If you have visited one of the Envato Marketplaces before and then click a referral link, it doesn’t count I’m sure they use more than just cookies to track this (eg: ip address vs referral url vs time) in order to stop people increasing their own referral count

also a lot of data on the marketplace is cached – so results may take a while to appear.
