I have to thank Mike at Spiked Math for prominently featuring a link to my Coffee Logic strip. Traffic to this blog is up dramatically this week, as well as traffic to the comic only mirror site as well.
How much? (You may be asking...)
Normally, only a good day, the blog gets about 500 hits. September 20th and 21st were, obviously, not good days. After that they days got very good indeed, almost hitting the 10,000 mark. It's been quite a while since I had an outlier like that!
The day isn't over yet, so I can't comment on the drop-off just yet. I'm hoping some of the new visitors will check in again from time to time.
Sometimes the humor is right there in front of you, just waiting to be made fun of. My apologies for using a joke that might not be so obvious to those outside this area who are served by different power companies.
I miss the old Brooklyn Union Gas cones, which read BUG Co.

He started making his own math webcomic totally by accident as a way of amusing his students and trying to make them think just a little bit more.
