Site news -- great new feature and a general update...

A point of order on the hint count: over 8861 hints served. So is that 8862
then?

Either lose the "over" or perhaps adjust the hints served number to round
down to the nearest 500 or 100. 'twould make more sense then. It's like
saying "it's about 8:43" when someone asks for the time. ;)

It's an old throwback to the fast food signs of my youth. Back before Mickey D's lost count and just went to "billions," they had an actual figure, prefaced with "over."

We always had a discussion as to exactly how far "over" that figure they were. So I used the same wording here :). Truth be told, the real number is "n+1" hints. I may change it someday to reflect the actual value :).

Don't change the wording -- I love it. I, too, remember when McDonald's placed an actual number on their signs. When my best friend, from my youth, and I would go to McDonald's we'd always speculate as to how close to that number our order would be.

I don't see a problem here. When you load the page the counter is frozen (not
updated dynamically) and while you read there are more hints served (you are not
the only one on this site) ;-)
