I expected the world to end, but maybe this means I have to wait until I’ve harvested 666,666,666 souls for Satan now.

    Judging by the 0 second visit length, it’s in all likelihood an automated program. Although the ‘visitor’ is using Firefox..

  2. Antti Rasinen says

    I love the fact the visit was to the “godless conservative”-post =) One of those lovely coincidences.

  3. says

    Moloch? Arioch? Ba’al? Dang. I always forget what nonexistent supernatural being the godless are supposed to be worshipping.

  4. says

    This commenting page is the weirdest thing. For weeks I could not get on with my old password and name, though I freely admit I may have forgotten it, so I created a whole new identity with a different email address and suddenly I switch on comments and my old persona is back up and working!

  5. says

    A most sinister confluence of events: visitor 6,666,666 was using Microsoft Windows – surely an unmistakable sign of Azazel. Stay away from Colorado!

  6. Craig says

    Hey, Old Hippie, are you the same old hippie that used to post on F***edcompany.com?

    “Dang. I always forget what nonexistent supernatural being the godless are supposed to be worshipping.”

    The Great Nullity of course! After all, around here nothing is sacred! :-)

    Damn. I was shooting for vist 6,666,666. I will wait for vist 66,666,666. Or even better: 666,666,666. That like, mega-evil.

    This user really needs to upgrade his Firefox. 1.0.7 has a pretty serious security hole.

  10. says

    So, the Devil uses Firefox, Somebody should tell Microsoft Marketing this, they could have a field day.

    Then again, they also use Windows, somebody should tell Apple Marketing.

  11. Willow says

    I got all excited thinking it might be ME, because all the details fit (including the embarassing Firefox 1.0.7). However, I’m not in Littleton; my location usually shows up as Salisbury, Maryland. And in checking my history, I visited the Visboek entry only.

    Darn. Fame eludes me again.

  12. says

    You may be disappointed to learn it was quite possibily me visiting with some friends in the home o’ Columbine, unable to go one day without a Pharyngula fix. Right city, right time.

    My dear hosts are really lovely people, though – far more than you could say of me. I will have to check with them on their IP address to confim and tell them to upgrade their Firefox.

  13. Chris says

    Whoa. This visit came from the town of Columbine High School? Now that’s spooky.

    Not really. In the first place, despite the name, Littleton is not particularly little; it has a population of over 40,000.

    More importantly, Columbine isn’t even in Littleton; it’s a county school.

    Finally, it’s not clear (to me, at least), whether the location is the location of the user or of Comcast. Since this user was probably using a dynamic IP address, I doubt if the location is reliably the location of anything more than a regional server cluster.

    Is this all trivial? You bet. But if someone actually thought this *was* a spooky coincidence (or an even spookier not-coincidence), then maybe I’ve illuminated some of the flaws in their thinking, which makes it worthwhile.

    P.S. Satan is not fooled: not all visits are from different souls. You expected the Lord of Lies to fall for such a flimsy obfuscation? What do you think he is, an ID advocate?

  14. says

    Most of the time, though, Comcast’s dhcp servers assign the same IP address to the same machine. I’ve found it very rare for mine to change.
