    Wow!

    That beats the last record by what? 400? Chalk it up to finals week I guess.

    Don't get me wrong, it's awesome we have a sudden jolt in visitors, any publicity is good, however the reason is due to PF having the #2 spot on google for the phrase "Nicholas Berg video". Checkout how many ppl are viewing the value theory forum, at one point I saw over 900!! We should be getting a whole lot more traffic because google just updated the results tonight and some of the data centers are still updating. So if we can get that many during on off time without all data centers updated, I'm expecting 2000 avg during the day! :smile:

    Ah. That explains it.

    *chuckle*

    wasn't the last surge due to John Titor or some such?

    Surely, they were all just seeking an illuminating debate on the moral quandry of the whole situation. :rolleyes:

    Actually, you can thank my morality- and my very loud conscience :)

    I also invite people to come here for a visit. I wonder how many of them come?

    How is it that I never lost track of this ancient thread? :confused:

    Anyway, I've only just noticed it but we've eclipsed the old record.

    The maximum number of members online at any time is shown just above the active users, on the main page.

    We are also coming up on 100,000 threads, and 1,000,000 posts.

    You're wrong Greg.

    The recent traffic is due to my wearing my PF.com T-shirt!

    Wow, who knew that those bots were such an untapped resource? Think any will become PF Contributors?
