Uhoh...

I posted a link to Carol's ghost story on Fark.com, and it has been greenlit. There is a possible risk that this site will suffer an ugly delay.

Here is the headline I posted:

"e-California's Lewis Stringer campsite features a ghost who rearranges your stuff, steals the stuff she likes, and then dances a jig by your campfire. Stainedunderwearity ensues-quote&

The link goes live at midnight.

Let me be the first to congratulate Carol for topping the list in our new number of reads function.

It could reach the thousands.

/fingers crossed nothing noticeable happens

Freaked me out, too... I expected -- maybe 5,000 -- but I didn't want to say that, thinking I would look like an idiot if it wasn't close.

Thanks for the story. It generated a lot of interest here... even if only for a day.

Most impressive is the server we have here. In fact, one fark reader near the top of the thread predicted a complete crash, because of the high traffic. It didn't happen, fortunately.

Your Lewis Stringer thread was getting "hit" every 8 or so seconds by a new visitor yesterday.
