Yesterday, my post, Cistercian number magic of the Boy Scouts, was the 200th post on Glossographia since its inception.

Today, around 8:45pm EDT (roughly 15 minutes ago as I write), some lucky visitor to the site rolled over the odometer, marking 100,000 views of the site all-time.

In honour of these milestones, here is a an actual milestone, from Thanjavur (Tanjore), Tamil Nadu, India, which features the numerals ’14’ and ‘8’ in both Tamil and Western numerals.
