Freedom...

So, apparently something happened to Sitemeter. For years and years, I lived and died by the numbers that would pop up when I clicked the link at the bottom of the page, sometimes checking multiple times a day. Why, it's almost like my sense of self-worth came from a number loosely tied to the number of times someone clicked on a website vaguely affiliated with me...

And apparently, Sitemeter's been dead for at least a week, because I got my weekly e-mail with stats and it was all zeros. Literally, an entire week with no visits whatsoever. Now, obviously I'm getting something, because comments, so it's just not registering anything.

I know in the past year since I stopped gunblogging and the DGC that the urge to blog is less. There's a zillion reasons why, but I think one of the bigger ones is getting the hell out of MA. Sure, the traffic's worse now, but I'm living in a free state (had two Ruger BX-25s mailed to the house from MidwayUSA this week. HOW DO YOU LIKE THAT, DEVAL?) and working in a job I really enjoy.

It was liberating seeing the Sitemeter record nothing but goose-eggs - and not realizing it for over a week.

That is all.

It appears Sitemeter has been hit with malware.

We're still out here, Jay. You can't get rid of us THAT easily.

Tam also reported problems (pop-ups, redirects) with Sitemeter:

Congrats on your escape and the normalization of gun-stuff. A change in venue can have that profound and effect.
