JAA stats

Last week the JAA website had:

18100 hits
273 unique visitors on Thursday
770 PDF's were downloaded off our site last week
(over 350 already this week)
the average visit lasts over 6 minutes
7593 pages were viewed
bandwidth total 173 MB

Great stats and one of the projects I am most proud of - this website being my project ultimately from start till now - and figures much bigger than Leigh thought until I gave her some stats today.

A few more - the blog pages accessed 2249 times in July, and already 652 times that week - which means the readership of mine, for eg, is likely to be around 30 a day - up from 15 or so 6 months ago.  Given the frequency of blog updates thats probably about 150 reads per update.

RAF
All seems quite on the RAF front for now - which is always a sign that its about to change of course! I was chatting to someone yesterday about the claim process and just in the last 10 years we have had changes from the agencies to the RAF itself and who knows what else.
Personally, I think the RAF themselves are running up the legal costs now like never before and it seems a bit hard to understand at times. One runs a case the whole way and ultimately receives what one had suggested - but to get there you have to run up legal costs on 2 sides and one wonders why reasonable offers can't just be made in the first place? Its not as if, in my experience anyway, the Road Accident Fund tenders are even right in 5% of the cases, and I get quite horrified when I see such a one sided match. To stop it being so one sided, and save precious resources of the RAF, all it takes is for claims handlers themselves to apply their minds - or be allowed to (I am not sure what the case is).

You can't
My blog has been a bit quiet - although I have plenty to say!  The current run everything to death approach adopted by the Fund does make free time a bit hard though.  I received a call from an Advocate who does a newsletter on Bills etc and she absolutely agrees with our approach - that in fact the parts of the Act we do not agree with are in place and can't just be removed by a "correction" in the Gazette.  A case in the Cape will hopefully resolve this - but there is obviously risk attached to this work at the moment.
