5,000th Post on the Site!

Readers Matt and Tom just pointed out to me that I've hit the 1,000 page mark on the site today!

And this post is the 5,000th! That is a pretty big milestone. I'd just like to thank you all for coming here every day. You're the reason I do this, and the reason I am able to do so.

Over 2,000 unique IPs come to the site on a daily basis. That's a really big number, and I still can't quite wrap my brain around it. I don't have a frame of reference for what that would look like if I could look out and see all of your faces in a crowd. My high school had around 2,000 students in it, but we were never all gathered in one place.

On that subject I would like to dedicate this 5,000th post to my sophomore English teacher. She shared her love of Shakespeare with us, which is something I'm still grateful for. She personally showed me that if I applied myself I could write quite well. By allowing me to write on topics that interested me, instead of fucking book reports, I developed an enthusiasm for writing that has stayed with me for 20 years now. Thank you, Mrs. Cummins!

Update: Long-time reader PantsOfDeath did an awesome cartoon to celebrate! For those of you wondering why I'm on the toilet, it might have something to do with my appearance in Apptronica magazine. That picture is still my Google profile pic, which leads to some interesting conversations whenever I call anyone with an Android phone.

I noticed that you were sneaking up on 1 K pages a few days ago. I thought to remind you, but I figured you knew. My wife is an English teacher, and she'll appreciate the dedication to Mrs. Cummins. I've learned a great deal from you over the years. Thank you!

Congratulations Tim, it is a major milestone, top man, top site, and thanks for everything you have done for us and the community๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜Ž

June 25, 2015  | person_outline Doug

Oh wow, I forgot about that pic from the C.24 review.

I think this is the other one you're thinking of: http://discchord.com/storage/lgimgs/ThenAndNow.jpg

Which was inspired by a picture from the guy behind Macbeth Synthesizers; who years before did a picture of himself on the toilet with his analog gear. He didn't respond to a request for permission to use him as "Then" in that picture, so I had to do both parts myself. It was actually pretty hard to fit the camera on a tripod in there with me and the gear.

Ah - that's right - my traumatized mind had conflated that image with this one http://discchord.com/blog/2014/5/16/friday-frivolity-the-more-things-change.html

hee hee. :-)

June 25, 2015  | person_outline PantsofDeath

Awesome Sauce Tim! A nice milestone and congrats on all your success. I appreciate that you never pull and punches and tell it like it is. At least according to Tim's world view. :)

Great cartoon @Pants Of Death. I always enjoy your comics. Great choice of image :)

God love ya, Tim! We love in a time when there are many good online resources. But discchord is the only site brave enough to call bullshit when bullshit comes around. Don't ever change.
