A slight increase in site traffic today…

Ajay Bhatt

Don’t try to act so surprised, we all know before today the only person who read this blog was me!

Today I feel like Ajay Bhatt!

What a day it has been, it appears the previous post regarding the Windows 7 party pack unboxing has proven to be quite popular across the Internet. It has been covered by rather large and popular names such as Ars Technica (who were very pleasant and asked me a few questions about the party pack and my emails, you can read more plus the interview on their website). Also big names The Consumerist and Engadget covered this blog entry in their news stories. Not to mention lots of forums, folk on Twitter and various other social networking and tech websites.

It’s quite a lot to take in to see your daily visitors jump from 31 to approaching 20,000 and still counting (I’m getting hits every 3 to 4 seconds, incredible). I shall enjoy my 5 minutes of web fame before falling off the map in to obscurity!

Some answers to frequently asked questions about the party pack

  • Yes I received both 32bit and 64bit editions. The 64bit edition comes in the form of an Anytime Upgrade DVD which comes separately in the package. You can see it in the white disc sleeve on the photos. The other disc which is in the black Windows 7 card sleeve is the 32bit DVD.
  • I have installed the Signature Ultimate Edition tonight and can confirm it a) needs activating, which it did successfully so it is not a different kind of key and b) it is just Ultimate Edition with different packaging. I have yet to find anything different about it from a quick snoop around.
  • I’ll take some more snaps of the bags if you wish although my schedule is rather busy right now, if I said the weekend, many folk will likely have received their packages by then so images may appear for you sooner than you think!
  • No I am not a plant, nor do I work for Microsoft. I simply sent an email with no intention of receiving a reply but Microsoft graciously replied to my email and very kindly offered me the gift.
  • No my bedsheets are not from the 1940’s.
  • Has anyone else played Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days yet? I’m looking forward to getting stuck in to it this weekend!

Thank you for all your great comments both on this site and across the ones I have seen so far on the Internet. I hope maybe some (or hopefully all!) of you will return here some day to read more articles at Stuff I Wrote.

Thank you!

  2. Thanks for your comment! I’m pretty sure by Monday morning I’ll be back to my 31 visitors per day (most of those being me when I log in to write entries!). Just enjoying the spotlight while it lasts!

  3. Hey it’s technically Monday morning 3 weeks later and I am first reading this now, it’s a great story with great photos. Found it on Ars Technica in a Firefox tab I had put off to read on a rainy day.

    My favorite part is your GD Comment Rating thumbs!
