oh say can you see.......


first and foremost, happy fourth of july! (13 days left until my birthday......and perhaps the launch of something new.)



(i found these nifty fireworks here.)

while we're on the subject of "borrowed" things, i stole this from kal.

somehow, i was not surprised by this result at all.


by the way, if you scroll down and notice that you're my 10,000th visitor, could you please do me a favor and leave me a comment? i'll give you...something. (how about bragging rights and a link in my next post?)

Damn...I was 9949. I seriously considered hitting the refresh button 50 times, but with the speed at which your blog loads.... *sigh*

Happy Independence Day and all that, from your Northern Neighbours

Larry said...

yes I was 9956 damn.

Something new huh? I'm curious.

Kal said...

9966, 9967 and 9968.

Uh oh, wife coming. Gotta surf off...

duff said...

yeah- i'm afraid the fireworks have slowed down the speed at which my blog now loads.....but i figured it was a special occasion.....

i'm up to 9973 right now.

Kal said...

9975.

And, Duff, dear, it was slow before. All your whizz-bang thingies (some of which I've stolen...), like your transition, Now it's p-a-i-n-f-u-l-l-y slow... But all good things to those who wait, right?

duff said...

hmmm....it was slow? it's slower for me at home than at work, but i figured it was just my trusty, ancient pre-pentium computer (paired with lightning-fast dial up).

sorry- maybe i should take off some of the bells and whistles....or maybe just avoid them for my upcoming project.

Kal said...

Hey, don't change on my account, I've got DSL...

I think the biggest change would be that fade in thing you've got.

10,000 hits in five months. You're doing something right... I've just only hit 5,000 (since July '04).

duff said...

the fade will stay, but will not be included on my latest project....which i really should start working on one of these days.

and i'm not responsible for the high number of visits- it happened when i wound up on blog explosion, blogclicker, and whatever the "wolf" one is. (too lazy to scroll down and check.)

however, i am quite proud of having around 25 regular visitors- not counting the folks who check in on me here at work.

Kal said...

Well, we all love 'ya, so keep up the good work.

Erin said...

Hey, 10000! Do I win a pony? Happy 4th!

Mama said...

Like you, I'm a Klinger. At least I'm not a priest.

Callie said...

Yay for erin! I was 25 too late.

Soooo . . . what kind of "something new" are you considering? You've got me really curious now.

Larry said...

Damn, I was 27 to late.

Mossy Stone said...

I know you like the fade, but it's a killer...

Digitalicat said...

Damn... I'm so jealous. My 10,000th rolled right by without a word.

And what's everyone talking about with this "fade?" Is this an IE-only effect or something?

Digitalicat said...

I loaded your blog in IE, too. I have no idea what you're talking about.

joanne said...

I'm late too, but I love the fireworks!

Kris said...

10,000 = blog superstardom! Congratulations!
