    50,000 hits in one day, 90,000 hits in a month *sigh* damn geeks, I'm depressed

    Checking out my photo hits on smugmug and suddenly it's there....50,000 hits in a day...yayyy, I'm going to be famous, I'll win the pullizer, I can quite my day job, I'm going to be rich! *start shopping for ferrari's*

    Sadly the truth is depressing. I wrote a review on the Surface Pro 3 for a Mac website (yes, a mac website) and the geeks in the hoards have been viewing it, clamouring over their monitor tanned skin to get a look at a toy which has been out for ages.

    That one article got more hits than all my photos in the last year. I'm going to go beat myself to death with my camera. At least it's a D700 with battery grip so the heavy weight should put me out of my misery quickly.

    50000 "geeks" in a day! Wow! That's... a sombre statistic. Commiserations.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    I'd be more impressed if it 50,000 screaming females, my wife would be less impressed but that would be easier to live with

    I don't understand what this means.
    Any wonder I'm depressed and not famous.

    In this instance it has two shutter releases .. therefore, no excuses for not uploading the resulting pics!

    Sheesh you were game. Talk about trying to start a flame war, posting a M$ article on a Mac site.

    PS. some geeks are female, so your wife might still need to be suitably unimpressed.

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated

    So why didn't you attach a few photo's to that report? All taken with the surface pro free Then they would be amazed and more hits than Elvis
