Out of the Blue

Today marks the eleventh birthday for Blammo, the proprietary news database that powers this site. Here are some Blammo statistics: The database now contains over 106,000 entries, over 1,500 articles, and well over a half-million forum posts. The SQL server here is currently at 75 consecutive days of uptime, and is approaching a half-billion queries (464,948,097 to be precise) during that 2.5 month period. All this speaks of the hard work of original programmers furn and Bagpuss and the yeoman effort of Frans to maintain and improve the operation in the ensuing years.

Those models are crazy neat. Reminds me a lot of my city museum's miniature model of the city from decades ago. The photography tricks were excellent too.  
Huh? I'm sorry, I was thinking about cake.
