The screen shot was sent in by Pinax, of Goliard Dream. Interestingly, it’s clear that according to my logging software, Pinax was NOT the actual 10,000th visitor.
That honor goes to an anonymous person who arrived via Google while, yes, it’s true, looking for info on “The Fruit Detective,” a story that appeared in the New Yorker a ways back that I enjoyed reading enough to blog, and which is easily the most visited page on the site.
They stayed for a total of four seconds before figuring out that this was not their beautiful house.
Fortunately, my vague wording actually requested a screenshot, which Pinax was so kind as to send in, in order to qualify for the prizes!
Pinax already telegraphed an interest in comics, but let’s get a clarification in the comments, shall we?
To review, three prizes were offered, one of whch was to be selected by the winner:
- Duplicates of comics in my files
- Computer junk
- Dot-com gimcracks
