I put a Statcounter on this blog in the last week of June, and since then it has been logging (more or less, there have some instances of downtimes) the number of visitors to this blog. Sometime earlier today the number of visitors here shot past the 50,000 mark. Needless to say, that is quite an ego boost. Yes, I know many of them came here looking for all sorts of different things, but whatever it is, and despite the fact that I must have added 1,000 hits myself (so the real 50,000 mark is actually some way off) I like the number. But, of course that won't mean I'll slow down now, I'll continue to bore the bejesus out of you folks.
