THIS IS HOW THE PNG ATTITUDE reader counter tracked the tupela wantaim political crisis of the past week. The mechanism graphs each day's page views by blog readers.
This extract shpws the period from 20 November until last Monday.
As you can see, our readership was happily tooling along at about 1,000 a day - it's normal level - until last Wednesday when, with the crisis gathering steam it shot up to the 2,000 mark.
By Friday - the height of the O'Neill-Somare crisis and with our live blog registering events as they occur - page views leapt to a peak of around 4,000.
Then we had interest gradually fading, but it does seem we've added a hundred or so regular new readers. Welcome!
But back to the graph - which shows a perfect representation of perhaps the greatest political crisis in Papua New Guinea' short history as a nation. Interesting, eh?
