Hello, and welcome to the weekly newsletter of www.cropcircleresearch.com
Photos of the first formation of the season, at Oliver's Castle, Wiltshire are now available in the database, courtesy of Lucy Pringle, who's gallery at www.lucypringle.co.uk/photos/ is one of the best (if not THE best) online galleries of crop circle photographs on the internet (just Google for "crop circle photos")
I've also performed a preliminary geometric analyis of the formation, and published my initial findings on the website at www.cropcircleresearch.com/articles/uk2007aa.html
I've also updated the website slightly to contain individual article counters. This enables me to see which topics are more popular (as well as least popular), and I've also added a small side bar so that you can see what the most popular searches are for. Again, this is handy to see what people find interesting and to enable me to add information which I hope people will find useful.
It's quite interesting to note that (as of writing this) the most popular article on the website is my analysis of the Chilbolton 'Arecibo message' formation of 2001, which is still attracting over 70 'hits' a day, closely followed by my analysis of the 2002 'Alien Face' formation at Crabwood, receiving an average of 67 'hits' a day. These are both more than double the third most popular article, so seem to be the most popular by some margin. By also listing the least visited pages on the website, I also hope to intrigue people enough to click on one of the links out of curiosity, to see what they've been missing - which of course will make them more popular and 're-shuffle' the listings - the purpose being to encourage people to browse around the site and see what information is available that they may have missed.
I've also dug out some very old articles by Gerald Hawkins and scanned them, to make them available to a number of people who have been asking to see his early research work. I'm currently sorting through some of his unpublished notes, in the hopes of continuing some of his valuable work, including thoughts beyond his 'fifth theorem'. See www.cropcircleresearch.com/articles/sound.html for more information.
Lastly, I've improved the site to work better with Internet Explorer on Windows PCs. As I don't use Windows myself, I hadn't realised just how bad Internet Explorer really is, until I checked this morning and found the font rendering all over the place. I've thus given the site an overhaul so that it now looks ok when viewed with Internet Explorer (although I'd still recommend people upgrade to Firefox! :-))
