My Sitemeter tells me where the lurkers ISP is located. Of course, that doesn't always work for the people with wireless connections. I like to know where readers are coming from. For awhile last year there was a lurker from Fargo, ND. I never did hear from Fargo, though.

What a great idea! I might just have to highlight a few myself, but what I found interesting was that in a few simple lines (100, to be exact) you can really form a picture of someone! I feel as if I know you already!

Have a wonderful New Year!
