The AOL counter f**ked up again.
After taking it down a long time
ago, I started it up again on July 14, 2006. Unfortunately, when you start it up again
it reverts to zero. Today, after seventeen weeks, it reached
7000. Then, for no reason, my counter on Firefox reverted to
000000s again. Crapola. I see it has reverted everywhere now. Great.
I guess I wouldn't mind so much if
the date posted on the counter would also revert to the day I started it up again. But, nooooo, for some inexplicable reason, it
stays on the date I started my journal. And it's not like the
counter has kept counting since then, even when I took it down. Nope, doesn't
So back to zero starting from today, November 22,
2006. Even though the date says March 17, 2004. No matter what I
do. I just have to remember to add 7000 to the number.
Actually, the journal has been read
thousands of more times since it began. Screwing with the numbers is
just AOL's way of reminding us not to get too attached to that kind of
stuff. How zen of them.
