Yay!

2000th image!

2000th image

In just a little under three months, we've reached the 2000 image mark. The response from our users has been fantastic - Thank you to everyone who has posted, and continuing to post. I hope the site will just keep growing with great images!

The 2000th image is "island", posted by none-other than my girlfriend.
All say hoorah!

Say what?

Top marks to Lello for this gem of a word:

Sphygmomanometer

Fortunately, we all know what a Sphygmomanometer does, so I don't need to provide this useful wiki link.

You'll also notice we're less than 25 images away from 2000! Get those cameras out over Easter! But try and have a nice relaxing long weekend at the same time.

Referrers from the Far East

Whether its the content of some of nh's images, or simply we're reaching the blogs of further afield, we have our first Japanese referring site this week.

Coincidences

I was browsing through the recent images this morning, and spotted a nice coincidence of the way the images had been arranged.

seventh heaven

Its common for images to sit side by side which naturally connect as many users post the left and right sides of signs for instance, but sitting on top of one another is a harder feat to manage.

one onethousand, two onethousand

By a staggering post of a bunch of images from his recent trip to HK, nh has helped us finally hit the 1000 word mark in TVD. Thanks nh. I'll buy you a beer.

A second watershed has also been passed, that of me being knocked off the top slot in the most contributing posters list. Also, by nh. You owe me a beer.

As a result, the 1000 word mark is the line I had mentally being waiting for before starting work on anything actually using the contents of the dictionary. Watch this space... and please, if you have any ideas of usage, or want to be the first to know when I release the public API - do comment here, or drop me a line.

nb. actually, there aren't 1000 words in the dictionary... as we're including locations, names, numbers etc... but awwww. don't got ruining my fun! i'm keeping an eye on the real word count, and i'll let you know once i've added in the filtering ;)
