(And yes, I suppose we’re always lucky; we wouldn’t be in the 590th installment if we hadn’t been.)

A lot of traffic here comes from random Googlers or Bingers or Whateverers who are looking for something specific, and the sheer volume of content I maintain — we’re coming up on 30,000 pages now — practically assures said randoms that if you dig down far enough, you’ll hit this place.
