Two million

On the 22nd of July, I asked: “Can we make it to the two-millionth visitor by the end of the month?”

Well, no. But we only missed it by eleven hours or so:

two-millionth visitor

It strikes me that this “unknown” ISP is one worth having, given SiteMeter’s manifest inability to determine anything from the IP address, which I have partially redacted.

And actually, I do know who this is — starting out with a Vent is a sure sign of a regular — but on a day when 60 percent of my traffic is coming from SurvivalBlog, I think it’s highly inappropriate to name names.

Incidentally, we went over three million page views yesterday afternoon.

I do thank all of you for dropping by, be it once or several hundred times, and I hope to see you again during the next million. (The first million was reached on the last day of March 2005.)

    Big congratulations. With some of the wittiest commentary on the web, you deserve two million more.

    At this rate, I should have them some time in late 2020.

    Is there any prize to a 2-mlnth visitor?

    Then it must have been me!

    Incidentally, among the things we know about Visitor 2,000,000 are the following:

    (1) Using Windows 7;

    (2) The most recent (22 July) Firefox version (3.6.8);

    (3) Has the Google Toolbar installed.

    Then I know for sure that it wasn’t me. Missed on two of them.

    Gotta bring back the World Tour — you woulda hit 2M by mid-July! Hopefully next year…..

    Congrats, Chaz! You’ve been on my daily must-read list for years now, and I don’t see that changing any time soon.
