Dear readers, I have nearly exhausted my bandwidth for April – my first 50,000 hit month ever. It resets monthly, so on the off chance that the site becomes unavailable sometime on Thursday, April 30 be sure to check back on Friday rather than forgetting I exist and never returning.

Six years ago when we were lucky to pull 20 unique IPs per day – and that was a good day – I would never have imagined averaging 1500. Thank you.

    …and feel your inner capitalist. I hate adverts, but better than losing blog reading access!

  3. Ed Says:

    No ads. Ever. That's a guarantee.

  4. Shane Says:

    It would be hard to imagine adverts on this site. Ads limited to only producers of gin and/or tacos however, would be kinda fun.

    oh, and congratulations!

    1500? You deserve a few more zeroes after that number, kid! Seriously, better writing and thinking goes on here than on lots of big-name websites. Consider me a lifer!

    If you start doing gin reviews again, I may just have this at my startup page at work.

    Ed, you make my day almost every day–you are sublime.

    you earned it.

  14. Dave Says:

    I found your blog a few months ago. Enjoy your thinking. Now were are the gin & tacos?

  15. Fulcanelli Says:

    Smart, funny, well written posts. Insightful, high-octane snark. Keep up the good work and I'll keep coming by every day to help use up your bandwidth. Great stuff, Ed. I talk you up at my other haunts, btw…

    I can't even remember how I found ginandtacos. I think it was linked to on dailykos, but I'm glad I did. I actually can't wait to read it every morning when I get into work. Informative, smart, and funny as hell. Thanks Ed.

    My first visit, came via C&l, glad I could be part of the record. Loved the Steele letter.
