Remember that scene in Star Trek: First Contact where Cochrane, Riker and Jordi blast into space in Cochrane's first warp-drive ship with "Magic Carpet Ride" pounding in the speakers? Well that's how I feel today as the altimeter soars past 50,000 hits. Thanks to everyone who's made this possible. I'm at once delighted and mystified that this collection of bubble-gum and baling-wire ever made it off the ground.


Steve and Robbo in the early days: "Wait, how do you spell 'Blogger' again?"

Meanwhile, another milestone has been passed by Gordon the Cranky Neo-Con, who hit the big 10,000 today. Go on over and congratulate him.

Yip! Yip! Yip!

Yips! I hit 100k yesteday and 125 a few minutes ago......

Look, if hits were predicated on talent you guys would get a billion a day and I'd still be getting four or five.

Great job!

Now, for major nerd points: Why was that particular song playing during the flight of the first warp ship?

Hint: Consult the texts on superluminal flight as it relates to creating a warp in space-time. These texts should be found in the left-hand corner of the basement of the science building.

Pep, you worry me sometimes.

Congrats, camelids!

Gordo has such a unique take on things in a blogosphere of thousands, maybe we should keep him to ourselves. Nah, the greater service to mankind would be to linkfest.

Pep--If memory serves correctly, it was "Brick House." Either that or "White Lines." But it was something definitely in the Grand Master Flash oevre.

I am so happy for you! Not only are your numbers soaring, but you help other people's numbers to soar as well. Thanks to you guys, I'm now a crawly amphibian, instead of an insignificant microbe. That wouldn't have made any sense to me in March, but now it means a lot. Thanks for everything!
