…to get a new hobby.
That’s right, 900,000 hits. It would probably be a buzzkill to admit that FastCounter’s count is highly inaccurate… and I don’t even know if it’s trying to count unique hits or not, lol. A quick analysis of our traffic using our stats tool shows that we actually have MANY more hits than what FC seems to catch (possibly multiple millions of non-unique hits), but there’s no way to know at this point because this stats tool wasn’t in use when the site was created.
What’s interesting is that I had forgotten we were zeroing in on 900k. I scrolled down there to check something and left the window open. Later I come back to see 5 beautiful zeros staring back at me. How serendipitous.
Let’s hang in there for 1,000,000. That count may be arbitrary, but I think we can all agree it functions well as a sentimental measure for our progress here. Thanks to everyone who helped us get this far!
