So near yet so far

Just one flag away from 99. Just two away from 100.

The suspense is killing me! Well, maybe not.

Suspense is probably the last thing you should worry about killing you. You have smoking, drinking, drugs and sex. The odd bus when not looking both ways to cross the road can also be a problem.

that can be easily remedied: i will send the link to your blog to my attaché in North Korea and to my adopted-half-sister's-cousin in the Republic of Central Africa a nd you shall worry no longer!!!

btw, hate to bring it up, but "satelite provider", "Europa" and "country not detected" should not really count! so that means i have to also contact my sources in the Faroe Islands, the Seychelles and in the Comores. :) we will discuss the price at a later stage (oh you thought i would do it for free?)

ok, i will allow the argument that "Europe" can be considered a country just because Bush thinks so.
Ok, i am done. no more comments. i promise. i am out. bye.

alan: you may well be right.

coffee addict: you are being mean and nice to me at the same time. Those places will have to be regarded as internet countries for the sakes of me and 'significant numbers'. But, if you are going to get those others to wander by here, I'll be most grateful. I wonder how I'll be able to pay you?

If you're still reading this before you leave, enjoy the weekend.

It took me a while to figure out u were talking about flags. Me's a little slow today. I'll visit ur blog from wherever I go next in the world, if that'll help?

By the way, the first thing I noticed here today is that I can't see so much of your nice background anymore. I hope this isn't anything to do with what that domkop character had to say (I just read his blog. Bah humbug.) I LIKE your ships & stuff!

terri: the more flags the better! As for the background, I did make the changes in reaction to what he said but I'd been meaning to do it for a while as I always thought the main box too narrow. I'd kept it like that because someone had told me that some of the older monitors can't read a wider main section. Glad you like my ships and stuff. Perhaps I ought to make it slightly narrower so that more of them can be seen.

Admit the suspense is killing you big time Nomad, I'm sure you check your blog 100 times a day just to check if another little flag has appeared on your board. OK, I admit, it's killing me too as only a geek like me (and you apparently) think this is actually quite exciting.

By the way, Europe is not a country and neither is satellite provider, but whatever...

My bets are on zambia and Malawi. If I win, you'll have to post a picture of you naked with a Bavarian hat on. VoilĂ .

... and the Bavarian hat has to be on your head, nowhere else.

Why a Bavarian hat? Why not a bobby's helmet? I mean the helmet they wear on their heads.

Hello again my friend:
I just passed 100 a few days ago and I feel honoured (thanks to everyone) to have done so before you, as you were the first person I discovered that had this counter and helped inspire the GOLD Medal Games. It was Luxembourg that was my 100th. I'll put up a message on my NEW CHATROOM asking people to visit you as well to help push you over.
Perhaps I could convince COFFEE ADDICT to have some of their far away friends visit me as well...as I don't have any of the countries they mentioned either...PLEASE COFFEE, PLEASE..send them to learn TREES...I give the lessons freely and now with pictures.
your humble servant,
Ancient Clown

I've been avoiding your blog. Last time I visited I gained 5 lbs!

ancien clown: long time no see; thanks for the offer of sending along newcomers but I don't really mind waiting for them to come by.

andrea: could I tempt you with some chocolate mousse?

Up to 101 now. 100 was Haiti, 101 Tanzania but I don't know which country was 99.

Anyway, it seems that I won't have to put a pic of myself up wearing a Bavarian hat now.

Congradulations!!!!

You've set up another inspiration. A few days ago I noticed that the closest I'd come to 100 hits in a single day was 97.
Now trying to break the triple digits in a single day.
Cheers Dude.
