2 000 000


 It's a nice day today, isn't it?


At least for this blog, because yet another level has been taken.

The counter of page views now shows values more than 2 000 000 (two million)!

2 000 000

Just to remind you, it took Linux notes from DarkDuck blog 1 year and 9 months to get the first 1 000 000: between October 2010 and August 2012. The second million page views came in only 1 year and 3 months: between August 2012 and November 2013.

Thanks to all the readers of the blog for their support!

Confessions of a 40 year old virgin

Until a couple of week s ago I was a virgin.

A frustrated, 40 year old virgin. There, I've said it. 

Well actually, to be more specific, I was a LINUX virgin who didn't know the difference between Ubunto (yes, in that spelling!) and Mint. And DarkDuck helped me to 'pop my cherry'. Now I think that I should stop with the lame sexual analogies before this gets downright weird.
