Necrothreading much?

Busy end/beginning of the week: a coalition of the finest and most renowned bloggers linked at the same time to the dissident frogman, with the same exploding effect on my counter as your average GBU-31 on your average underground concrete shelter packed with murderous Husseins (well, at least three of them).

Andrew Sullivan and Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit) both linked to the dissident frogman Friday and Tim Blair finished the work on Monday.

Err... Sorry for the bandwidth usage, Xanga.

Anyway a big and sincere 'thank you' to the most esteemed and respected Andrew Sullivan, Tim Blair - for their post on the Iraqi arm sales chart - and Glenn Reynolds - for his link to "Consecration".

And, of course, the Merde in France Special Forces for the stealthy yet effective ground support.

Talking about "Consecration", I received a lot of very moving feedback and very touching stories, either in the comments or by email.
I'm very grateful to those who wrote but keep in mind that this little post of mine should only be taken as a first installment: I'm still in debt with Joe and Tommy you know.

Not (directly) related, but as a consequence of this busy week-end, I'm glad to tell you that, born in November 2003, the dissident frogman welcomed 100.000 visitors on Friday and had the pleasure to see almost 30.000 more since (we're at 128,462 by the time I write this).

Thanks to all of you for the tremendous welcome I received. It was unexpected and is, therefore, particularly appreciated.
UPDATE:
This counter thing is a bit flimsy and I almost failed to notice that the blogger-buster strike was accompanied by a tremendous shockwave from the outstanding Cold Fury.

To help a bit the argument going on in the comments over there, it is my duty to inform Mike that since I do have a working pair of b... Whatever. Just write "Le" Frogman.

Not "La".

But thanks for the link anyway!

Fin/début de semaine chargée : une coalition des plus excellents et renommés bloggers ont lié presque simultanément vers the dissident frogman, provoquant une déflagration de mon compteur de visites identique à celle produite par n'importe quelle GBU-31 sur n'importe quel abri bétonné souterrain empli de meurtriers Husseins (ou, pour le moins, trois d'entre eux).

Andrew Sullivan et Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit) ont lié vers the dissident frogman vendredi et Tim Blair a fini le boulot lundi.

Euh... Désolé pour la bande passante Xanga.

Cela étant, un grand et sincère 'merci' aux très estimés et respectés Andrew Sullivan, Tim Blair - pour leur post sur le graphique des ventes d'armes à l'Irak - et Glenn Reynolds - pour son lien vers "Consécration".

Sans oublier, bien entendu les Merde in France Special Forces pour le furtif mais efficace support au sol.

En parlant de "Consécration", j'ai reçu énormément de réactions et de récits très émouvants, soit dans les commentaires, soit par email.
Je suis extrêmement reconnaissant à ceux qui ont écrit mais gardez à l'esprit que ce petit post n'est rien d'autre qu'un acompte : je suis toujours en dette avec Joe et Tommy, vous savez.

Sans rapport (direct), mais en conséquence de cet actif week-end, j'ai le plaisir de vous annoncer que, né en novembre 2003, the dissident frogman a accueilli son 100.000e visiteur vendredi et en a vu presque 30.000 de plus depuis (nous sommes à 128.462 au moment où j'écris ces lignes).

Merci à tous pour ce super accueil. C'était inattendu et en devient donc d'autant plus apprécié.
MISE A JOUR :
Ce compteur est un peu bancal et j'ai presque failli ne pas remarquer que la frappe des blogger-busters s'est accompagnée d'une redoutable onde de choc en provenance du formidable Cold Fury.

Pour aider un peu la conversation qui s'enrichit dans les commentaires là-bas, il est de mon devoir d'informer Mike qu'étant donné que je suis doté d'une fonctionnelle paire de b... Peu importe. Ecrivez "Le" Frogman.

Pas "La".

Mais merci pour le lien en tous cas !
