This is actually kind of exciting, in a totally pointless, arbitrary, time-wasting kind of way...last month we exceeded 300k hits (total page loads) for the first time, and this month I was wondering if we'd exceed 350k. That's the number I pulled out of a hat when I was writing the new Introductory Page a few weeks ago.

Well, here we are, down to the wire, 7:07 p.m. on January 31st, and the monthly total for hits this month stands at 397,549, only 2,451 away from the Big Numbah. It's already a record; but are we going to make 400k hits before midnight? Tough to tell, but it's entirely possible.

See what fun you can have with a blog?


UPDATE: We hit 400k for the month with half an hour to spare—by midnight, the official number was 400,248 hits in January. Cool! (Yes, I know it's silly, because round numbers are just accidents of our base ten numerical system, dependent on the fact that we have ten digits on our hands. If we had eight fingers on each hand, we'd count in hexadecimal, and we'd understand binary better, and computers would have been invented sooner. As you probably know, there are only 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary and those who don't. <*Rimshot*>)
