Visitors to Thomo’s Hole

Whilst at lunch I was also looking at the visitors to Thomo’s Hole, and where in particular they came from. Using the nice little world map off there in the left hand sidebar, I figured that I had visitors from pretty much everywhere with the exception of the few places in Africa, a couple in South America, one or two in Central Asia and an island or two in the Pacific.

Wrong!

I went and had a look at ISO-3166 (as you do when you are part geek). ISO-3166 lists country codes for all extant (plus a couple of “disputed” territories) and there are 246 items in the list. Comparing that back to the visitors at Thomo’s Hole and I still am waiting visitors from 101 places. The locations that have not visited Thomo’s Hole yet? They are:

Some of these places are perhaps covered in other visitors. Svalbard and Jan Mayen, for example, may be covered by visitors from Norway. Åland Islands may be covered by visits from Finland. Anyway, you are all most welcome to Thomo’s Hole – come on in and have a look around! I’m waiting to hear from folks in these states.

Oh, and of course it means that if your country is not listed, then there have already been visitors from there.  🙂
