250,000 downloads!

Today, we reached another milestone as far as downloads go: PeerBlock 1.0 has now been downloaded over 250,000 times! 

Our thanks go out to all of you who've been working to help get the word out about us - while we've had some not insignificant traffic coming from various high-profile blog postings, the vast majority of our hits seem to come from "drive-by visitors" . . . people Googling for "peerblock", or else people just coming straight to our site.  I can only imagine that this must be from you all telling your friends about us, who then tell their friends, who then tell their friends.  They say that word-of-mouth advertising is the best kind, and you guys definitely appear to be taking care of that for us. 

Thank you!  smiling smiley

Yay! Word-of-mouth definitely is a powerful advertising method. Coupled with the awesomeness of PeerBlock, we get a nice mathematical equation ;D. Congratulations are definitely in order! Congrats to PeerBlock people, PeerBlock users, PeerBlock supporters and also to everyone that have at least heard of PeerBlock =)!

I have no doubt that the numbers will grow rapidly. After all this is exactly what everyone needs to regain that they consider private. Well done PB! Certainly all my circle of influence will know about PB. smiling smiley

Heheh, World Domination aside, I'm definitely proud of how far we've come in such a relatively short time.  Woo-hoo!

And Dave/besarar, don't forget that it hasn't been just me working on PeerBlock - we've had lots of people pitching in, as per our Credits page . . . which reminds me, I need to update that to reflect some recent additions to the team.  But yeah, we wouldn't be nearly as far along as we are without all those people contributing their time and effort coding, testing, writing up documentation, helping people out here and on IRC, donating webspace and graphics and, most importantly, their time.  And of course all the people who've donated to the cause thus far, paying for the driver-signing certificate and associated expenses.
