The poll with that as the question has finally come to a close after a year of polling.
The poll got a total of 22 votes which I hope is less than the number of people that actually visited the blog in a year. Still 22 people isn't bad and I am particularly pleased that only 7 (thats 7/22 or approximately 100/pi % thats 31% ish) of them claimed to know me while the majority 15 (68% ish) of them claimed to not know me at all. This is heartening, since it means my blog is not entirely invisible on the web. Furthermore it means that the blog has more pull than merely the pull afforded by personal acquaintance with this nut.
