    Thanks to everyone who helped out with Macrumors event coverage.

    MudBug => Provided IRC transcripts
    jammerb => Provided Satellite Feed for the website updates
    Knox => IRC coordination/bot management

    Mr. Anderson, Eyelikeart, AmbitiousLemon, Rower_CPU => Moderating these forums during this busy time
    Sparkleytone,Shadow95 => IRC moderation

    Some useless stats:

    - ~1500 people were on IRC across 3 channels for the event coverage.
    - The Keynote coverage page was loaded over 860,000 times yesterday.
    - Forums hit a new record of 2652 users on at once. (and we didn't crash :) )

    Ouch! Even with the low bandwidth page in place during the keynote, that must have hurt the old wallet ($$$$) bandwidth++

    Anyway, great job on the live keynote updates, they were very informative :)

    Half of those 860,000 views were most likely from Spymac members, seeing as Spymac was down for the keynote (great move there :rolleyes:).

    Thanks Arn

    You keep this site in good order. Thanks for the coverage, thanks for feeding us with a constant stream of curious, interesting, trivial and not-so-trivial, wonderful, and well, all kinds of information.

    Ditto 'Hear, Hear'

    A daily visit to Macrumors and MacBytes can take a while but keeps me fully informed.

    Keep up the great work.

    Thanks
