    WOW. Since october last year we’ve had 500,000 hits. Glad to see that our site is actually popular. Lets hope the next 500,000 bring lots more fun and joy. Expect to see some changes about in the next few weeks. 😉

    Not bad, keep up the good work!. Last week http://earthspace.net had 27,375 and http://starryskies.com had 5,379. But these numbers are small compared to what esr’s pages did on earthspace.net before we moved it to tuxedo.org. Back when the CATB paper came out earthspace.net was getting over 100,000 hits a day.

    Yeah…I’m working on it! I’ve already got a few photos of the guys, so “I’ll get to it” this weekend, but if you know me, you’ll know what I really mean = ). Not my fault UNSW gives me a crapload of work all the time! Also in my todo list is gonna be the first of my Debian tuning guides. So look out for that. Cheers. And thanks to everyone who’s supportted this site in form or another.

    Are these unique hits, or people like me who refresh every 5 minutes to get the latest in Debian news?
