Site Columns By Christian
February 27, 2001 - 11:55 PM

Hello World!

And I was so hoping to avoid this in the New Year, but these Site Columns were again the result of a race against the clock to get them posted before midnight server time, as otherwise they would show up as being posted on the 28th - and as otherwise the whole elaborate TV listing system would fall apart. What didn't particularly help in getting this posted quickly was the new anti-RSI program I installed, which, if I don't take the recommended 40-second break every ten minutes, starts beeping and flashing and generally being very annoying, so that the only possible course of action is taking that break. It won't even shut down regularly, so when I get really frustrated I have to Ctrl-Alt-Del to even get it to go away. Funny how a program designed to prevent Repetitive Stress Injury only gives me more stress.

Well, the amount of people that only discovered the site over the past two months is pretty surprising, even though the site statistics have also seen a considerable rise in popularity for the site since New Year. It's also interesting to see how large a percentage of people discovered TrekToday during its first few months - thanks for sticking with us for so long :)!

Happy Birthday!
