Warwick Blogs URLs

I’ve noticed while writing my ‘Bible In A Year’ blog posts that Warwick Blogs appears to have a rather interesting way of dealing with name collisions.

My very first post, in which I declared my intentions, had the URL:

The first of my posts containing a reading had the URL:

The second had the URL:

The third had the same with _3 appended.

And the fourth and most recent:

It makes me wonder what the URL of my last reading will look like…

    I think you’ll get 1_2_3_4_5_6_7_8_9 and then get a completely random number. I don’t think this was the designed intention – I seem to remember it used to just be _1, _2, _3 etc (without all the previous numbers) but it’s possible I changed the code ages ago and didn’t notice (it’s also possible that it was always like that)
