A few weeks ago I noticed something interesting was happening with the hits on SLR. Suddenly I was receiving a lot of hits from India. Between 1 A.M. and 2 A.M. I saw the total site percentage of hits from India go from 0.01% to nearly 50%.

As it turns out, my virus story was picked up by a major newspaper in India. On February 3, 2006 the Mumbai Mirror picked up my story and in doing so exposed SLR to an audience that otherwise would probably never have noticed me.

There’s probably some copyright issue here, but I’m going to let it slide.

It has died down a little since then, but it’s just another sign on the global nature of the internet.
