Did anyone notice that Going Private's second birthday slipped quietly by early this month? (Neither did I). Seems a million eons ago, that first post. I barely recognize the author who was writing back then. Still, 1.34 million page views, 401 posts, 86 trackbacks, 26.3 points of lifetime IRR net fees, 18 transactions, 14 date requests, 8 ambiguous invitations to coffee, 5 marriage proposals, 4.5 death threats, 4 threatening legal letters, 3 cities, 2 years, 1.5 promotions and 1 love letter later, the blog remains.
