Register hits million page imps a day mark

That's what they call a result

We've been edging around it for a few months now but yesterday The Register surpassed one million page impressions for the first time - well, 1,000,182 to be exact.

Not to put too fine a point on it, this fact makes us rather happy. Of course, the air of joy and frivolity may be sullied by argument over whose story precisely pushed us over into million territory.

The Lego remake of a Monty Python sketch certainly helped, but writer Tony Smith admitted this morning he expected it to do better; Drew's reposting of what Microsoft said about grey exports in 1998 was certainly popular; the latest instalment in John Lettice's Microsoft anti-trust saga kept readers up to date.

Tim Richardson's report into BT's shaky backbone belied what the monster telco has been trying to make us believe; a quick review of what Gordon Brown's budget holds for IT and Internet companies found some followers; Andrew Orlowski's review of Nokia's vision for the mobile market was required reading; John Leyden reflected on the risk of hybrid computer viruses following a recent spate; and Thomas C Greene's revelation that a tool built to protect your PC can actually be used to launch DoS attacks flipped the security market on its head.

All in all, a good day. ®
