There is currently close to 3200 users/guests viewing the Forums, I'm fairly sure this will increase as we move closer to the Keynote speech.

Are there any statistics on the site showing traffic and users logged in?

Does anyone know the record numbers for traffic and users/guests viewing the forums/site?

It coped last time, so fingers crossed :)

Going by the speed I'd guess it's a dedicated server, so it can handle itself.

I think the record was about 9,500 or so back in September. It will surely break 10,000 this time though and I would hope it doesn't go down, however it's inevitable it'll be slow.

It was upgraded recently too, I think to two or three dedicated servers.

Edit: Most users ever online was 9,519, 09-06-2007 at 03:40 AM.

As I link directly to the forum spy, I didn't notice the forum information that you have posted above, thanks for pointing this out.

Enlighten us, how did it make your Safari snappier, in general or just when on MacRumours?

Joke. Based on 2 MR memes.
