When I started this techblog in 2007 and got my first 500 visitors, I was in
the clouds. If you told me then I’d hit the 5,000,000 visitor milestone 3 years later,
I would have probably slapped some sense into you.
Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine my little side-project would take off like this.
Yet here we are.
To celebrate I wanted to give a prize to the exact 5th milion visitor, but all I know
is that he/she is from Switzerland (the visit came via google.ch). So instead I’ll give free beer
of choice to the first person from Switzerland to leave a comment.
To all other nations & visitors: 1 Free beer for the best Swiss
imitation. But more importantly, a big thanks to you for taking the time to give so much
feedback and help me improve my writing.
I’ve learned a lot from you guys and it’s humbling to be surrounded by so many bright people.
I really hope to keep writing at least 1 article a month for as long as I can
type. And I hope that you will keep voicing your opinions & improvements. Thanks everyone.

@ Rudra: I don’t know, stick to a schedule (in my case 1 month) and just write what you think people will find useful I guess.
@ Marcel: Thanks, but last week isn’t quite 15 October 2010 : )

Congratulations and good luck with your projects!
