Funny traffic trends

I have been amused by the patterns in traffic for Pineapple. Here is a 3 week sample but you get the idea:

Monday: Huge
Tuesday: Usually even bigger than monday
Wednesday: Tapering down
Thursday: back up a small percentage (personal projects?)
Friday, Saturday, Sunday: A near linear decrease

Them sorts of trends seem to be the case with most corporate sites anyway.

Well.. I don't really know why it's like that - it just is. I'm assuming everyone's work day kind of coincides when people have free time, and when people are swamped, or when it's the weekend and no one wants to be on the computer.

On all my other sites it's far more random. On this, the days line up almost 100% as far as positive or negative change. The other weeks for the most part are just the same, just increasing volume over time.

How are you getting that stats view? I'm guessing its a different front end for Google Analytics. I originally thought it was from GoSquared but you don't have that implemented.

That would be this one of my favorite apps, Visits... with my paradise desktop backgrounds showing through: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/visits/id462227149?mt=12

Tutorials are any resources you learn from.

Examples: an intro to html5 screencast, a pdf about git, photoshop effects tutorials, meta-programming in ruby, lambda calculus, higher-order fixed-point combinators.

Tools are websites, apps or services used -on- your project (indirectly), to aid the process.

Examples: A color scheme generator, email marketing software, usability heat maps, css3 code generators, a downloadable png compressor.

Assets are downloadable files used -in- your projects, usually as code, textures, or images.

Examples: a jquery sticky menu, photoshop brushes, background textures, mvc frameworks, twitter bootstrap, 960 grid system.
