The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

24 July 2004

Half a million served

At just before 12:13 this afternoon, this site recorded its 500,000th visitor, from an SBC IP (216.63.148.113) apparently in north Texas. Scarily enough, 'twas someone who has it bookmarked.

Five months and four days for the last hundred thousand. This won't impress anyone on the A- or B-lists, who can score that many in mere hours, but down here amongst the more modest life forms, it borders on Actual Accomplishment.

As always, I thank all of you who have helped to run up that otherwise-meaningless number.

(Update, 9:40 pm: For a more meaningful number, see The Spoons Experience, which reached 500,000 today.)

Congratulations. I would say that is quite an accomplishment.

I agree. Congrats, Charles, and don't forget to look at the quality side of the meter: this is one of the better blogs out there.

I alone contribued, gosh, at least several score of that last 100K - so I accept your gratitude on behalf of all of your faithful readers.
