Hah, if bigger is better, I am naturally cooler than Uli: 2366 ("fair") today! *jumps up and down* :-P

There seems to be a healthy amount of randomness involved on the side of the page owner however... "Egopoints now biodegrade. They have an atomic half-life"... Don't call the page to often and be happy with the first results, I think that's the message...

Heh, yeah, I put no stock in these gimmicks. But that doesn't make them any less fun to peek at. :-)

I have no idea what the various numbers mean. On the first page (with the speedometer-type animation) I got an incredibly high number (somewhere in the 6000s), on the HTML and on subsequent calls to the same search I got a lower number, and since I posted it this morning the number has about halved.

The progression of numbers looks as if I was burning karma at a vastly accelerated rate, or I'm on a steep rise to popularity ... no idea. Fun idea and plaything, though.

Heh, neat little site. My ego is 3642, so I guess that means I wear larger hats than you. :-P
