Someone using Windows XP and browsing Pharyngula’s blogroll was the official 50,000th visitor, according to Sitemeter.
That’s appropriate, I suppose. About 65% of my readers use Win XP, and I think Pharyngula has done a lot to make this blog what it is. Thanks to PZ Myers, I got some nice attention for quirky t‑shirts and some good science posts. Plus, he set up the Tangled Bank, which is now in its 31st edition at Science-Boy. Every two weeks I can count on a surge of traffic from people interested in good science.
This is a great community, and I want to thank all my regular visitors for their support.
Onward to 500,000!
