This is really cool: In the past few days, I have noticed that this blog has received visitors from all over the world!

I mean, I know that this "all over the world" thing has always been true for the Internet in theory, but now I am actually looking at the list of specific places: Spain, Australia, Estonia, Korea, Canada, Italy, Russia, Philippines, Denmark, Mauritius ...

That is completely amazing to me.*
