IPR was launched exactly 9 years ago, on May 20th, 2008. By sheer coincidence – I was not here when the site started, but I was here not very long after that – I had a birthday today as well; a number also associated with a popular caliber of pistol, the sum of the two digits of which adds up to 9. Since it’s already almost midnight where I am and past midnight for some of you I will make this quicker and just do links for the history and prior stats:
Thanks to everyone who writes for, reads and comments at IPR! Sorry for the rush job compared to equivalent posts from prior years and hope to see everyone with another one next year to mark a decade of decadence.
