    Guess what? It’s been a whole year already

    Greetings, Geeks!

    Naturally, I missed my own anniversary -- the first posting I made on this blog was March 30, 2007, just over a year ago. As my dad might say: "Hoo hah!" (if you're reading this and you're my father, Hi Dad!).

    Pretty cool, if I say so myself, I really wasn't sure when I started whether I'd be able to keep it going this long. As it turned out, it wasn't as hard to come up with topics as I thought it would be. Here are some stats:

       41 -- Approximate number of main postings in the blog (yes, I was too lazy to count...)
       1100 -- Approximate number of comments posted
       2 -- Number of guest blog postings (1 by Mark Vincenzes, one by Steve Nikopoulos)
       between 3000 and 9500 -- the range of the number of page hits on the blog per month
       166 - largest number of comments on any one post (this one, I wonder how many of these suggestions will make it into 8.5?)
       a LOT - the amount of fun I've had doing this little project

    Thanks to you, fellow Geeks, for making it worthwhile to keep this thing going. Keep posting!

    Remember: "In theory" means "not really"!

    Well somebody needs to say "congrats," so I'll be first!

    Your blog has done wonders for discussion in the community, and for me has been the #1 most visible sign of the re-commitment of IBM to Notes/Domino.

    Congratulations Bob!

    @1 - First, and <only>, so it seems! :-)

    Thanks Erik!
