After years of 3 new posts each week,

This is number 550.

.

So then, which post has been the most “popular”?

.

We’re not sure, but one post¹ has been “encountered” more than 1000 times…

.

That one is #o77, our short piece of fiction,

.

“33 Minutes to Live.”

   To get this short story you can type in our search rectangle “#077″ and you’ll go directly there. Now some comments: (1) You may get several possibilities since #077 is mentioned, or referred to several times. But you should look at the possibility where the number is in the upper left corner. Or (2) you can type in the name “33 Minutes to Live” and you’ll get several posts where this is mentioned. This is also true for any key word or name such as “Leonard Susskind” who we’ve referred to before. (And you’ll get this post where we use him as an example. :-). (3) Our multiple archiving system also keys into types of interest such as “religion,” “science,” and “language,” as well as “year published” if that’s sometime helpful.

   Now we shouldn’t get carried away about all these hits. We have no clue about about what’s read, much less understood or valued (excepting for occasional comments²). Places from far and near try to “tie in” and connect with other sites without reading or caring what the site is. Such attempts usually end up in the trash.

   The question, however, is why pick this story as a favored connecting point…and not something else, or hitting on a much larger scattering of other posts?

   Our only other comment. Feel free to roam around in any of our other posts. Tell us if you find any are particularly useful for.

   ¹ The clicking on the story, “33 Minutes to Live” may have a few times occurred at posts other than #077, so our implying that this site only was hit so hard is a bit deceptive.

   ² Just a week ago a large pick-up truck pulled up alongside my 1999 Rav-4 in a VFW parking lot and its window rolled down. A older retiree stuck his laptop up where I could see it, and a voice said, “I read you all the time!” Thanks, Lin. You started my day off with a bang. Not all comments come in electronic form…
