Journal Journal: Holy shit, I have "fans"!

Well, I was reading an article today when I noticed a blue ball next to the username associated with one of the comments. It turns out that the blue ball means that user is a "fan" of me.

Now, I hadn't been on /. in probably 6 months until last week... all I posted was a comment on DNS wildcarding and another on VoIP at Dartmouth. Since probably not too many people paid any attention to the DNS comment, I'm guessing that my "fans" are Dartmouth folks like myself (Hi Steve).

None of this really means anything, but it's an interesting feature.
