‘Million Hit’ Day


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 10 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

I’ve just past one million hits for the year-to-date: That happened in March last year, July in 2006, November in 2005, and not at all in 2004. Given the relative paucity of new posts this year, the archive must be driving much of the growth – which is great news.

This 1,261st post was filed under: Blogging, Notes, Site Updates.

Don’t Cry For Me Argentina.
Paco is my 12 year old dog.
He is my fur son.
My constant companion, he goes for help if I get a low blood sugar attack (from my diabetes) and stays by my side until I am helped.
My wife has even taught him to nag me when she is not home and able to.
Come nine P.M. if I am still at the computer or reading a book. Paco comes into my home office and growels at me until I get up and come to bed.
If I try to go outside in bad weather he blocks the door per my wife’s instructions.
I think if I brought a babe in he would bite her boob.
You can guess what he would bite on me.
Paco is a kind, honourable dog.
But in Argentina, Paco is a bad street drug.
It is a disgrace to have something like that named the same as my dog.
Paco and I are able to communicate-that’s how close we are.
I asked him how he felt about a street narcotic using his good name.
“I would not even wish that on a CAT,” was his reply.
