Woo hoo. I just rolled over the magic 1000 Weblog post mark (uh, 1001 now <sigh>) last night and didn't even notice until today when I was about to post another entry. Looking at the site this morning I realized the big fat triple 0's showing up on the Post count.
It's been a little unceremonious I suppose - it's pure luck that I noticed since I rarely look at the actual post or comment counts these day. Heck I don't even visit the actual site all that often - I post from Live Writer and usually jump straight into my Admin interface if I need to customize my post's attributes so I rarely look at the numbers.
To make things even less ceremonious, the last couple of weeks have been slow for me with posts as I finished up a contract in Europe and started traveling back to the US. Things should pick back up now that I'm back 'on the horse' with a bit more content lining up.
One thousand posts doesn't seem like all that much but this number stretches back over four and a half years with the inaugural post on December 13th, 2003. Looking over those really old posts is like a jump back into history. Then again it was a lot easier back then to find something to write about. Nowadays it's easy to dismiss something simple as too mundane to post about - gotta reconsider that attitude. Some of the most useful posts or that generate the most responses are those quick and dirty hints and tips.
Ok, time to move on - onwards to the next 1000. I suspect it'll take a little longer yet.
Just as I was going to post this entry my server wasn't available. Grrrr... failures are getting more frequent now. Ironically I've spent the last day building up my new server that will replace this box probably next weekend. The Murphy of the old wants to make himself known just one last time. This time I was able to check out the box (the ISP kindly hooked up a separate KVM to the box and it turns out that network card is jittery - box is alive and running locally, but hte network out connection wasn't working. Jiggled the wire a bit and it came right back. In the end opened the box and reseated the card hoping that it'll get me through the next week <g>...
