Apparently like a picture of me in my pjs as a kid.

Today I looked at my weblog and found over 2200 hits from the AOL proxy server on 27 March from 4am through 6pm. Fortunately AOL aggressively caches, so they were all HEAD hits which doesn't pull down a new copy, just checks to see if it is the same version they already have.
