    Default Another little flurry

    I missed this one.

    Most users ever online was 324, 11-10-2007 at 03:46 AM.

    Wonder what prompted the sudden rush . It always seems to happen when I'm tucked up in bed. Perhaps they feel it's safe to come out then.

    It doesn't seem to happen when I'm on line, either. Maybe the counter is inflating the numbers?

    The counter is pretty unreliable on the forum. Although it can only count people if their IP address is different, some search engines send out multiple spiders to index a website, which can boost the numbers to these levels. This will be the same for most other forums too. Genuine users on this site seem to hover between 30 to 70 people online at any one time, although I've got no way of verifying whether 300 odd people were genuine or not at that time. For a more reliable indication of whose coming and going, you should view the site stats on the website.

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
