The one after 99,999

Orange Crate Art received its one-hundred-thousandth visit this morning, from someone doing a Google search in Seoul: how to write email professor. It's that time of year: 270 of the last 500 visits to this blog have been to How to e-mail a professor.

Congratulations on this milestone.

I've retained a mental image of my university life - the professors dining at high table, the students at low table, at our Oxbridge inspired college. Just a step between us - but in our imagination, a huge step.

There was no email then. No advice on how to email a professor.

My essays were written on an inherited (and appreciated) Underwood. This isn't that long ago, at least in my estimation.

I once went by municipal bus to visit a psychology professor at his remote laboratory. There were hundreds of squaking pigeons there - retired squab breeders. No wonder he wasn't at the main campus. I soon decided that psychology was not for me.

Anyhow, please forgive the ramble, and congratulations on Orange Crate's success!

And more than half of mine - but nowhere near your numbers - has recently been for 'salitter'. I'm beginning to regret I ever mentioned The Road.

Congratulations on over 100,000 readers. I appreciate the "how to email a professor" piece, and have included a link to it in my syllabus this semester.
Thanks!

Stephen, for me it was an Olympia portable (which I could take in for a tune-up to two typewriter repair shops in Boston and Cambridge).

Lee, I googled salitter, and now I understand.

Jason, I hope that post adds to your quality of e-mail-life. It always makes me happy to get a good e-mail from a student.

Thanks, all.
