In case you thought I needed help

I'm a 6.3.1. And I ought to get an umlaut or something over that '1,' because every one of the top ten results (out of 104,000 total) for "sean gleeson" is me. That's never been the case before, and I expect it won't last long. My name has been bandied about a lot of late because of the Weblog Awards.

I think, under Matt Carter's amendment, you qualify for 6.3.0.

You're right, I'm a 6.3.0. From Jerry's page, I got the impression that the '0' was reserved for those who were the only results. But the actual text of the amendment is clear, the '0' is for those who are the only results on the first results page, such as myself.

7.1.1, using my surname only since that's pretty much my online identity. 10.1.1 if I start with my first name.

Now you know why I generally don't bother with my first name online.
