Out of the Blue

Thanks to Quboid for noticing that the hidden counter at the bottom of this page surpassed the 666,666,666 mark, meaning the site has had over two-thirds of a billion visits since 1996. This makes me recall looking at that counter years ago when it passed the 36,000 mark and being shocked because I never imagined it would get to that point (so you can imagine my current level of disbelief). Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the support over all these years.

Congrats on all the hits!

Although you DO realize half a billion of them were generated by nin, right?

Watching Felix's jump was fantastic. It gave me an urge for crazy videos on the weekend so I went digging and found some old helmet POV videos of 2 guys trying to climb Annapurna in the winter and some video of the 2008 K2 incident.  
Playing: Pillars of Eternity 2, Far Cry 5, Persona 5

That is a pretty staggering amount of hits! Congratulations for sure! It's funny, whenever I think of the "early Internet" this is the first site I think of. It is still the only site I go to 2-3 times a day, and have since Quake 1.

Now I'm going to go take my Geritol and yell at kids on my lawn.

As you pointed out the other day, the length of time you've been on the web is downright impressive.

Congrats again!
