Help the Blue Worm

The World According to Sroyon version 2.0 has crossed the 25-post mark.

*pause for cheers*

The number 25 is significant in several respects: it is the smallest square that is also a sum of two squares, the smallest base 10 Friedman number, the smallest aspiring number, the per second frame rate of the PAL video standard. But most importantly, The World According to Sroyon version 1.0 had 25 posts. Crossing the 25-post mark means that, in a sense, version 2.0 is venturing into hitherto uncharted territory.
To mark this important occasion, I hereby present a cumulative frequency graph comparing the number of comments received on versions 1.0 and 2.0.

From here on, the blue worm is on its own.

You really make the people who read your blog want to kill themselves.
*shoots herself.

every intention of helping the blue worm i have. but not enough time to even read all the posts i've missed. grrr.
word verification can read people's minds: fatig.

I thought you said that you deleted your old blog, then pray how in the world were you able to make a comparative cumulative graph on the comment count? methinks the red worm is engineered...tsk...tsk.

or, you saved a frequency chart from your old time blog, or you made a graph back then and just added the new figures now...take your pick of escape routes :D

Priyanka said...

i don't care. i want to know where the posts on version 1.0 have gone. only then do i contribute to the blue worm hereafter.

no, but really, congratulations :)

Sroyon said...

@wonderwall: Why?

@Pratiti: Believe me, it figures constantly in my thoughts.

@Saha: You hardly spent any time in and around college this time.

@Shrabasti: See? This is why you should comment frequently. But I've already got a real word once, so impress someone else.

@Karthy: Neither. I saved the posts on my hard drive before deleting the blog.

@Priyanka: Now will you contribute?

what if, WHAT if, some hypothetical person were to go and perversely comment on the old blog posts, thus helping the RED worm?
*evil grin*

Sroyon said...

Karthy already did. I don't mind people helping the red worm as such, but borderline OCD case that I am, it makes me want to edit the graph each time that happens. I'm seriously considering disallowing comments on the old posts. The other option is to put in a line in the graph saying "As of so-and-so date."
Also, you have a twisted mind.

"Under 25" provides a common cut-off point for designating youth.Wikipedia

aah.. it took me all these comments, moving from the latest to the first, to figure out what WV meant. Do not judge me too harshly for my stupidity.
I've got a real word once before too, though i can't remember what it was, i do remember feeling exultant about it.
I got sonsisms, by the way...
