The 20K Club

Sometime in the next few hours the 20,000th visitor to this blog will arrive to ... nothing. That would make a nice widget, something that would allow you to greet certain visitors with on-screen fireworks. Of course, all of us have come across screens that tell us we are a special visitor and will get a prize if only we give our credit card number and tether our first born to the mailbox and walk away.

Since the 20,000th visitor here will be greeted by nothing more than a mixture of suspicion and gratitude, if such a widget existed we would not abuse it. It would be what the Brits call a "one-off."

And thus endeth the lesson for the day.
