Merry Xbox

XXXLYour LakeCountyEye observes an annual tradition of sending holiday greetings to every reader of this blog in their native language:
Merry War On Christmas!
Startling news, however, has recently come in via the Intertubes:
Everyone knows the story of how the world wide web made the Internet accessible for everyone, but a lesser known story of the Internet's evolution is how automated code -- aka bots -— came to quietly take it over. Today, bots account for 56 percent of all of website visits
Bots Now Outnumber Humans on the Web
The site stats do not lie: Were it not for web bots (and North Korean hackers) this blog would see no traffic at all!

None of which, in your LakeCountyEye's estimation, should be reason to discontinue a perfectly good annual tradition. So to all readers of this blog, young and old, human and otherwise, best wishes for the holiday season ...

And to those hacking in from North Korea ...
