Getting reacquainted

I think I'm officially a geek. I've been a very happy little Vegemite reacquainting myself with the laptop, and setting up everything that I want to use the way that I want to use it. Nearly there.

While I was away I managed to post my 100th post - to think I didn't even notice because I worked out how to email myself. I'll have to go back through and work out which it was.

I've been looking at some of the stats for how people have been visiting this blog (I told you I was a geek), and I think I can safely say that music is the key way people are finding me - see the list below for proof. I'm pretty proud that one person typed "I hate hewlett packard" into google and found me. I am not alone. To the optimist who typed "the appeal of paris hilton"into google - good luck - I don't think I helped you, but I hope you find your answer. I know one of the searches was me (not the hp one) because I had some spare time at work, had a mental blank for the url of one of my favourites, googled myself (yes, I'm tragic) and visited you from the link on my homepage.

12.50% build me up buttercup baby

'engagement of Daryl Braithwaite'??! How funny.

How do you find out how people have come to visit your blog? (another question in which I reveal my vast ignorance).

Glad you're enjoying renewing the bonds with your computer this weekend!

It's my other geeky little obsession - I've signed up with statcounter.com and got a little bit of code sitting on my blog that tells me the searches people use to find me, and some of the countries that they visit from. Just the free service though.

Ah, I see (said the blind man). I will have to try it for myself!

By the way, thanks for your reassuring comment on my post about getting old(er!). You're a lovely blog-friend :)

Now I've got that song in my head... but I don't mind because I love that song. :)

Happy belated 100th!
