Visitor #250,000 to this blog arrived here at 3:23pm today, Tuesday. Site Meter couldn't identify a referring URL which means, I think, that my visitor wasn't referred here by a search engine or link from another site. So perhaps they have Proper Course bookmarked and might actually be a regular reader rather than a casual passer-by?
Here's where it gets interesting. Visitor #250,000's Internet Service Provider is the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland which I assume means that he or she is a midshipman, or member of staff, or other employee at the Naval Academy. Maybe it's the Superintendent? Maybe it's the janitor? I don't know.
Anyway, he or she entered on the front page, lingered here for 1 minute 49 seconds and then clicked out to... oh no... they out-clicked to the site of my blogging nemesis, Joe Rouse, producer of the infamous The Horse's Mouth blog, a somewhat dodgy soft porn site full of semi-naked women photographed in suggestive poses with fish. You really don't want to go there.
Admiral! How dare you! And on working hours too!
So, if visitor #250,000 is prepared to identify themselves I would like to honor them here (assuming that by doing so I won't earn them demerits or anything bad like that.) It has been suggested that the lucky person #250,000 will win naming rights to my Laser and I am happy to award such privilege if they are interested.
