I love anniversaries, and particularly when they coincide with one another. Today, I have three four causes for celebration:

  • Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed that Sunday's post on the microbiome was my 800th piece for Not Exactly Rocket Science (including all full-length posts, Pocket Science write-ups and opinion pieces, and excluding re-posts and the photo safaris).

  • Today is my fourth bloggiversary - NERS was born in August 13th 2006

  • Sometime in the last week, I got my 3 millionth page view (including those from the Wordpress and Scienceblogs incarnations).

  • [Updated] And apparently, I've written 10,000 tweets! Thanks to Chris Rowan for the tip.

Woo, and I might add, hoo. So in a tradition I started when I wrote my 600th post, this is an open thread. Feel free to ask/talk about anything you want. I'll do my best to reply, time pending. Cheers, and thanks for reading, Ed
