Here's One For The Readers

Here's something light (ish) to buffer my earlier rant and to celebrate the fantasticness of a Friday afternoon.

It wasn't my idea, it was Varen's, but being the stats-whore I am, it piqued my curiosity. I wanna know who you are ... I use StatCounter.com so some of you are fairly easy to spot either by your host name or using your IP address. Some of you, regular readers I can tell, I have no idea who you are. And others of you, it's impossible to tell apart thanks to the vast monopoly Telkom and Internet Solutions seem to have on the South Africa web market!

Here are your details - if you don't know if it's you or not, use this handy IP Lookup to check, drop me a comment and tell me who you are ... and why you find yourself a regular reader, it's curious to me :)

1.
Irish Visitor: 87.198.196.139
2.
Someone I labeled FNB @ Waverly: 196.11.134.77
3.
Durban Visitor: 196.22.196.62
4. UK Visitor: 213.31.11.20

So come on readers, put yourselves out there like I do every day and let me know who you are :) Please ...

Hulloo...
i'm one of your regular readers...

i went ahead and checked my IP - it is 196.25.255.218 and it says something about Pretoria...

funny thing is... i'm based in Wadeville - Germiston... WT???
or maybe i'm just not geared for this stuff...

ok bye for now!

Weird, judging by your comment times and checking on my StatCounter (since I know you generally hit me from Loulou's blog), your IP comes up on my side as 165.146.29.17 - still, it's Telkom so who can tell for sure!

Thanks and keep reading :)

Hey Phil, I am the de-lurker from Durbz. Enjoy reading your blog as well as the reciprocal from Varen. It's like a cool soapie ;)

Keep up the cool writing...
Cheers

Now this might be interesting. I have only been reading your blog for a couple of days and depending whether I am at work or home will probably show different IP addresses. From home it is probably some IS (the one I am using now) but from work can be anything .. probably somewhere out of the States with all the firewalls and VPN's we go through.

phillygirl said...

@marius - yes, this is the problem in our country ... too many variable IP Addresses coming from Telkom or IS that mean most people don't consistently keep the same IP. Oh well /* sigh */ such is life.

Good to hear you're reading tho ... how did you stumble upon me?

Marius said...

A great thing called Amatomu

phillygirl said...

@marius - at least that goes to show my subscription there was worthwhile ;)

BUSTED!
I am your regular reader from FNB - although I work in JHB town, not Waverley...
So why am I a regular visitor? Other than escaping the trials and tribulations of writing functional specs and mapping card processes, I am amazed to see how similar our lives are - same rants, restaurant tastes and even boyf issues!
You have some interesting insights...

@suzzie - nice to meet ya :) And I wish you good luck if your life is even remotely similar to mine! Glad you enjoy the daily distraction from work tho :)
