1000 Hits in 24 Days!

Visitor 5000 hit on April 1st but visitor 6000 hit on Monday night! I'm not going to bother congrat- ulating them or thanking them because they're French. Still, it's an impressive statistic. So much so that I'm not even going to bother giving a damn about visitor 7, 8. or 9000 but a prize will be given to visitor 10000!* or the closest visitor after that, that I can actually identify and contact. At this rate I'll need it in about 6 weeks LOL.

The pie chart figures show a dramatic and disturbing downturn from visitors here in Ireland but increased visitors from every other corner of the planet and the absence of visitors from the evil empire of Unknown Country is noted.

Good news on the browser front IE is down to 51%, Firefox at 38. Safari has dramatically risen to 6% while the dregs are shared between Mozilla, Netscape and Opera.

As for what brings people here:
  • marsoc
  • gladiatrix
  • "schmidt & bender"
  • Spiderman 3 teaser
  • adventures of briscoe county
  • secnav donald winter
A google for "sentences for cathoilc priests" found a random comment from Cubaboy.

I'm curious as to why someone in Information Systems, U.S. House of Representatives in Washington would come here too look at info on the Thunder Chickens. Maybe they were looking for info on the most recent Osprey mishap the other day ago involving the Chickens themselves. Don't worry lads I won't be reporting that another one dropped out of the sky. Only positive spin on the military here :D

Finally, a big hello to all my readers in Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio (or at least the one who keeps coming back).

*Before you all start clicking incessantly after 9900, I'll be resetting the counter or not counting more than 10 individual non-consecutive visits within a 24hour period and/or more than 1 consecutive visit at a time interval less than 30 minutes in length. Meaning you can't just sit there and refresh the page.

What? Another Osprey incident? There go your share prices Colonel!

Dr Fantastico said...

Do you think the people who counted the casualties from Chernobyl counted the two headed ones twice???

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

@ Fromer Grunt: Shut up!

@ Dr. Fantastico: I read The Onion as well mate, the other quotes are funny too.

Ricky Gervais said...

So come on man, how many differnt regulars hit your site out of these totals, I mean we don't know but your best mate from the air base in Ohio may have hit 430 times this month to put the US top of the chart and why does he get a special mention?

Former Grunt said...

As far as the Colonel is concerned 'real' military visitors are always more special than us. If he keeps this up he may even be seen as some sort of mascot to galvanise the troops. He's certainly more loyal to 'the flag' than some of the troops I've heard in the press, and what about all the generals calling for Rummy's resignation? The Colonel won't stand for that, would he? He needs us because we're the only ones not afraid to comment though :)

Maybe Rummy could get the Colonel to do a discrete number on some of the treacherous generals with his silenced 9mm?
Pre-empting master guns, he could then leave generals behind also. Imagine the thrill of that!

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

@ Ricky: I can guarantee that I look at the details of each visitor to the site and no one has returned to visit more often than those who post, or at least folk whom I know. The visitor in the AFB has returned a few times more than any others I've noticed as his IP and server name are tracked and recorded. I gave the guy a special mention because he's probably got a boring job counting parts or refuelling jet fighters, dreaming of being as funny and prolific as a successful comedian like you or a legendary hero with a way with the ladies as I am. The least I could do for him is to mention him in a post; it's probably the most attention he's got all year. He has a name, but everyone calls him 'Bob' because they've forgotten it...

@ Former Grunt. Indeed, I think I get so many military visitors, because I awaken in them, something that they may have forgotten about themselves: duty, honour, justice, truthfulness, integrity and righteousness. I'm with General Shooemaker on the Rummy thing: “I think we have a responsibility, while we’re in uniform, if we can’t put up with what’s going on, to pick up our saddle and move on,”

@ Sithy: Considering the way Rummy has been handling dissent in the E-Ring lately I'd not be surprised if he calls me in the coming days to do just that...

sith apologist said...

Truth, Justice, Honour, Loyalty ... should I laugh at the Colonel spouting the 'Code of Thundera' from the Thundercats?

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

Shit I forgot "Loyalty".

It's not the Code of Thundera dammit. They obviously lifted it from the Marine's creed in the first place.

Lion-o said...

Thunder ... Thunder ... Thunder ... Thundercats, Ho!!!!!

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

There's always one...

Firefox Fan said...

Heres an idea, Colonel - why don't you design a small "site optimised for Firefox" type logo? It might convince some IE adherents (why are they doing this?) to make the switch?

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

Done! Check it out just above the counter.

lion-o said...

Of course, the Sword of Omens!

lion-o said...

any fans out there will likely find this rather amusing ... requires sound though.

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

My god. The Thundercasts weren't real! It was just foulmouthed voice actors all along!

lion-o said...

As I said to Snarf, "Shut up, you ..."
We're real, dammit!
