"Because it's fun to watch the odometer roll over"

That's the gist of what my dad said during a discussion some six years ago over why people were still so excited about the transition from 1999 A.D. (or C.E., whichever you prefer) to 2000 A.D. when they knew perfectly well that the real turn of the millennium wouldn't take place until 2000 gave way to 2001.

Well, I have to agree, it is kind of fun to watch an odometer roll over. One year, six months, and three days after I chose a Blogspot URL, named my blog, and picked a pseudonym, Sitemeter logged the 10,000th visit to Do Thy Research.

Thanks for reading.
