A million hits

I had to post this because it's another site milestone.  317 verified layouts, 7600+ comments and we've finally got to a million hits.  Here's the stats page from the admin panel which show how much traffic has increased nicely since the blog opened in 2008.  And look at the top posts, all ZVex! 



Thanks guys and gals!

  1. Wow! Congrats!!!! Speaking for myself, I learned SO MUCH using the layouts posted on your site. It allowed me to make huge steps in my learning while building pedals that I always really wanted to play.

    Thank you for all your hard work!

  3. Congratulations! Looks like you have some open markets to tap. I wouldn't focus too much on Greenland, though.

  4. Congrats!

    Seems like those 60-70 layout months paid off faster than you could have ever imagined :) And i do think i know why ZVex layouts are so popular.. Those are the things people want to build as their first builds. Mainly because they are relatively simple, usually really good and originals do cost a lot. The first veros i did were Woolly Mammoth and Machine.. :)

    Yup. Can't agree more on the learning issue. It's not even been a year since i finished my very first GGG Green Ringer kit. Now i've done +85 finished pedals and there is now over 35 tested boards just waiting to get boxed (i might not box every one). I've learned so much, but there is still more to know. You've really deserved the 1M hits. Thank you.

  20. Hi, I have recently started to build my own so I'm rather a novice at it. I do, however, have a question, and one that will prove what a novice I am. So, here goes:
    "Why do all the diagrams stop short of showing us where the input and output connections are made? Which wires go to which terminals?"
    Or are they there and I just don't see them?

    Mark.
