    So I happened to log into GA to see what's been going on while I've been busy eating Easter Dinner. I was surprised that so many people were online, since most of the traffic on this site is from the United States. It's turns out GA was reporting a large amount of traffic from outside of the Earth. Yes, that's correct. I am getting traffic from out of this world. 41 active visitors from the International Space Station's Control room.

    The are not buying anything nor can I tell if they are clicking on ads yet. Astronauts apparently don't convert very well, so they are going to get an IP ban in a moment. :)

    Still a few hours away from April Fools - even on the East Coast.

    41 active users on a small tin can floating in space. Imagine the amount of toilet paper that would be needed. lol

    Guy's it's Google trolling, April 1st, check out some forums about it, they've released Treasure maps for Google maps, and some weird 'Beta Nose smell' thing if you type in 'Dumpster' etc on Google you'll see. It appears they have more money than sense.

    He means he had 41 visitors online which is the same as the first day of the fourth month i.e 41 which was part of the prank by google.
