Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

Programming note

Hang in there ...

The visit counter still isn't working right, but the folks at Sitemeter are working on it. Depending on what browser you're using and how you have it set, you may or may not even see the counter -- if you can see it, it looks like I have actually lost a few hundred visitors.

I've been checking back every few hours, and it appears that right now, the Sitemeter folks are undertaking a painstaking and grueling reconstruction of visit data -- each time, there are a couple more days' worth of visits recorded. According to their latest update on the problem, they have been worried that they might just lose the data altogether, so it's nice to see that they're at least beginning to recover it. If they actually succeed in saving everything (or even almost everything), I'll gladly buy each of these folks a growler of Pickaxe IPA.

Oh no!!! Say it ain't so. Sitemeter is losing visitors???

My whole self-esteem is based on thatslowly rising count of visitors to my blog that I only check about every 5 minutes. You mean that 59,786 number might be wrong? My life is worthless. I might as well go back to writing a journal on paper.

Sorry, I mean 59,788 - just checked it again.

Actually, it was just one of Sitemeter's servers that went out -- their oldest one. If you're fortunate enough not to have had your counting done on that server, your numbers are still valid.
