Little finger

I saw the doctor today about my little finger. It isn't mallet finger; the droop isn't enough, but there's something up with the top joint. The cure is ... splint it until it's better. Which is exactly what I've been doing, but it's good to have confirmation from a professional.

The doctor was very impressed with the splints and finger stall, and asked where I got them. Ebay, of course. He also advised that I should take the splint off now and then and give the joint some gentle flexing, or it'll stiffen up. He's right, it had. But after a few flexes, it eased up.

This is blog number 500. I've been blogging for 16 months now, and I've got nearly three regular readers. But I'm doing it mostly for myself - it's like a diary.

25 followers, 32,000 pageviews, and although most accesses come from the UK, which isn't surprising, the second most significant country is China, which is very surprising. Why would Chinese people be interested in the ramblings of a geocacher and programmer?


  1. I hate to tell you this Doc, but you only have one reader, I just use 3 different personas. Me, myself and I :)

    But to be fair you are an inspiration to many of my personas, and I am even considering blogging myself!!

    Here's to the next 500 blogs.


  2. I'm a regular reader but I read it through Firefox Add on called Brief..does that make it 4 regular readers ?

  3. I'm RSSing it, for what it's worth :)

  4. With a huge effort, I'll avoid making a double entendre about RSSing.
