Ich suche.....Wir suchen

I have been noticing someone visiting this blog often from what is sometimes listed as Paderborn, Nordrhein-Westfalen, or sometimes as Oldenburg, Niedersachsen in Germany. (Sitemeter/Feedjit have their own ways of looking at Geography)

Coincidentally, we have been looking from someone from Paderborn, who came to India and spent a year here. This person returned to the University at Paderborn in the early 90's.

If you are the visitor from Paderborn, could you leave a comment and/or contact me by email available on my blogger profile ?

I would be most grateful !


  1. I hope you find the person you are looking for at the earliest.

  2. IHM Thanks IHM. Someone did contact me, and although it wasnt the person I was looking for, they will be on the lookout for the names...

  3. The blog is really bringing the world closer ! So to speak ! :)

    I hope you find the person. I am perpetually amazed at the way in which you keep track of locations from where people visit your site from !

    Keep it going ! :)

  4. Kavi Actually I am amazed at the laxity, with which the thing in my sidebar interprets latitudes etc. It shows you as having visited from Secunderabad.(I checked the comment timings against the Feedjit thing) Unless, of course, you are really there :-)

    Am also doing some other searches. Hopefully I will trace whoever we are looking for !

  5. Very pleased to tell everyone, that I did find the people we were looking for. About 5 minutes ago, just got an email.
    Who was it that said, "Seek, and thou shalt find ....?" :-)

  6. Hope the visitor contacts you!

    Sometimes visitors have different IPs on pupose- an online friend of mine would have an IP showing her to be in a different country when she logged in from her office computer.

    She told me the office did this on purpose for security reasons ( which I, being technologically challenged, do not understand!).

  7. Just read your above comment- congratulations! :)

  8. congratulations..I was (silently) keeping a track :)

  9. It truly IS a small world, isn't it?

    Glad you found your person!


  10. Oh wow !! You found them!! Isn't internet such a miracle!!??

    By the way there's cup for you on my blog :)

  11. IHM Yes the Internet is simply wonderful. And so is the yellow polka dot cup, which appears now amidst my awards slide show in the side bar ! Thank you.

    P. S. I even spoke to the people we were looking for !

  12. Congratulations. You are smart. Do you know it?
