In honor of John’s 10,000th post, I thought that I should reveal a little secret – our archives are pretty easy to navigate. If you read the http header for any particular post you will see that it ends in a number. That’s the total number of posts on the blog ending with that one. The archives go all the way back, so here for example are posts # 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, 2584, 4181 and 6725.
This is purely in response to some questions in the comments, not an encouragement to skim through the archives for things to embarrass John with. Those of you who will do it anyway should feel completely awful about yourselves.
