Just a short note to announce the winner of the competition. Competition? What competition? Don't worry, I didn't know about it either. Truth be known, there wasn't one until I had a winner that was so irresistible that I made a competition just for them.
As background, this all came about as I was browsing my statcounter. This statcounter is responsible for the little hit counter at the bottom of the right hand side here. Actually, it does more than merely give me a total count. It gives me the country, state and town of each hit. Don't worry, I have no idea who anyone is. Other spooky people might, but not me.
Anyway... one place-name just kept popping up over and over and over again. Was it a big city like LA or New York? Hardly. It has a population of just 56,447. And yet people from this tiny town have recently been hitting this site every hour or two. I get more hits from this place than any of the world's great metropolises. That's why I made a competition called The Busiest Internet Town In The World.
And the winner is... drumroll... Reston, Virginia!
Actually it's not really a regular town. Perhaps we should call it a 'company' town. Mind you 'town' isn't quite the right word either. Really it's more of a suburb of Washington DC. It's a bit like Langley in that fashion. Which, funnily enough, is just next door.
Anyway, the fine people of Reston Virginia, I salute you! Long may you have nothing better to do than sit around on the US taxpayer's dollar spending time on sites like this. Hats off to your sinecure! After all the amateur zeroes who come here on the cheap, it's nice to know that there's people out there who are actually paid to do it. And I join you at sneering at those who think that you're villains. You're not villains! You're making the world a better place. Not for all of course. Just for a small privileged elite. As the old saying goes, better to be a fucker than a fuckee, eh? In honour of your victory here today, and in acknowledgement of your service to a tiny percentage of the US population, I declare you to be, without doubt, the former of these two aforementioned! Three cheers!
