Out of the Blue

There's a hidden counter at the bottom of this page that's been ticking off visits on-and-off since 1997. At some point late last week the counter passed the 500,000,000 mark, representing our half-billionth visitor, which is a little startling. Thanks Quboid, who somehow managed to notice this, and thanks to all five of you for having visited 100 million times apiece over the years.

he other is one of those single serving makers where the coffee/tea/cocoa

I have a keurig one at home and work; i think the coffee is above average, but not wonderful; but extremely, even extraordinarily, convinant and definately worlds better than any other one cup brewer i've tried (senseo etc.) you can play with it to get better coffee (the higher ends have some settings, and you can use your own good coffee instead of their pre-packaged ones)

but - while i love it for it's convenience, I still have a drip brewer and french press for when i have more time to make & enjoy something good; but for the morning when I'm running out the door, it really can't be beat.

the tea and cocoa is total crap and expensive to boot, so FYI, don't buy it for that; you'll never want it.
