100,000 Members!!! We should break the 100,000 PF members mark in the next few days - we have been growing at a rate of 150 to 200 members per day but it does vary. As of right now we are at members = 99,565. I think this is a huge milestone for PF. Congratulations to the Admin and staff, our Science Advisors and Homework Helpers, our gold members who pay to keep PF alive, and the many bright and dedicated members who have helped to further the cause of education and to make PF the best on the web. If the typical internet forum is an internet community, then I think PF has achieved the status of being an internet city; a city of our best and brightest! When I think of PF, I think of a commercial... not sure who did it, but it showed a hall full of young academics, I think scientist and engineers, and asked [approximately] the question: What great things can be achieved when 100 of our best and brightest put their minds together? So when I think of PF, I wonder what great things can acheived when 100,000 of the worlds best and brightest put their minds together? I will add that PF is growing and so is the demand for server power, hence money. If you haven't done so yet and you appreciate the great things done here, please join and help to support the cause. [an unapproved solicitation on my part] After over five years I am a bigger fan of PF than ever before. We have come a long, long way, and every day we are blazing new trails - helping to define the information sphere, and working to make the world a better place. Onward to 250K!
