We Have a Winner

Filed under: Uncategorized — The Professor @ 12:22 pm

Comment #3000 came in when I was in Hong Kong.  And the winner is . . . (pause for ironic effect):

rkka.  LOL.  Proof that I don’t play favorites.

Now, I tried to email him to inform him of the good news, but the message bounced with the error “Domain name not found.”  So, since rkka apparently guards his anonymity so jealously that he registers with a dummy email address, I doubt he’ll be stepping up to receive his SWP t-shirt.

Pretty funny.

And perhaps funnier, is that comment #3001 is from Steve J. Nelson.  Hey Steve . . . if you want your shirt, let me know via email at [email protected] –but remember I only promised to ship in North America 😉

Comments #3002 and #3003 were also Steve’s.

So, unless rkka or Steve come out . . . that means the winner with comment #3004 is R.  Step right up!

In all seriousness, folks, I’d just like to say thanks for all the interest and the comments.  The volume and intensity of the comments has been a surprise, and a pleasant one.  To put things in perspective, comment #1000 came in March, 2009, or more than three years after I started the blog.  Comment #3000 came in September, 2009–6 months after comment #1000.  It’s been a rollicking 6 months.

Sometimes things get testy and rough, but that’s the nature of the beast.  All I can say is, pace the Supersuckers: “I like it all, man.”

Thanks again, and I hope you all continue to visit in the months to come.

  1. Aha! A dastardly SWP plot to persuade me to uncloak! But I’ve seen through his cunning plan to send my contact info to Phoby! Mwa-ha-haa!

  2. I would have rejected the T-shirt even if I had won.

    I cannot allow SWP to sully my ideological purity with his consumerist trinkets.

  3. Can a comparative per capita study be done to see how great the rate might’ve increased since my appearing here (said in jest, unlike a certain anonymous blogger, who is periodically known for issuing boasts, based on statistical claims)?
