Artifacts from my referrer logs: Three very very very loyal readers?

An interesting phenomenon I've noticed in my referrer logs is that just three readers, identity unknown, seem to make up about a tenth of a percent of my total traffic on the typical day:

  • Albuquerque, New Mexico (on a Mac): via comcast IP# [identified]
  • Arlington Heights, Illinois (also on a Mac): via wideopenwest IP#
  • South Weymouth, Massachusetts (on Windows NT): via comcast IP# [identified]

Frequent visits from these IP#s go back at least six weeks. Could these loyal readers be bots of some kind? Maybe. Some activity from them suggests not.

Are you are one of these very loyal readers? If so, please step forward and introduce yourself!
