Hello hello, mr/ms anonymous visitor from bluewin.ch, who surfed in on 27.2.2006 at 2:21:24, without any sensible referral information, and viewed the main page of the blog.
As the 5000th visitor to this blog you are now entitled to a drink of your choice. To be meted out at an appropriate place, at a jointly agreed upon moment. Yes, this being an occasion of such magnitude, even a Long Island Ice Tea is a legal choice.
(Yes yes, the number’s probably off by an elephant-sized margin. The blog was without any statistics for ages, and the sitemeter-service seems to have endured a few outages since then. But as we all know, according to a heroic american statesman “facts are stupid things”, so let’s not get too hung up on the shortcomings on the details of calculation.)
