I don’t normally write about blogging. I suppose I’m afraid that it will make me go blind or something, but the ten thousandth visitor to this site is a something of a big deal for me, so I’m willing to make an exception and risk it. I have decided to celebrate the occasion with the official OSOTM* 10 000th VISITOR BIG PRIZE GIVE-AWAY [trumpet fanfare].
But how on earth could I possibly identify the winner? Well, I just happen to have some seriously sophisticated tracking software at my disposal, so it’s pretty easy. We’re not just talking about Mickey Mouse stuff like IP addresses and so forth. I know more about you than Microsoft does. I know what you had for breakfast. I know what colour your underwear is. I know when there is a nasty link between the two. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a tiny bit, but I do know that my 10 000th visitor was routed here via an ISP in Albany, California.
Consequently, I will be sending a letter of congratulation to the mayor of that fine city, along with an autographed picture of my more interesting tattoos.
