    :) just posted a reply to another post and was amazaed at how fast it moved around the "new post search" from other people posting as well. Maybe it has to do with the time of day but who cares. I love it. Makes me happy to know that I'm not the only one sitting at a computer screen on a beautiful sunny saturday morning. :)

    Hey...it's grey here too! Of course, our rain is known as "Oregon sunshine". It is a might damp for doing much without raingear.

    I was skiing in Vermont a few years back. While chatting with one the courtesy patrol guys about my reckless ski habits, I commented on the rain. He smiled at me and said; "In Vermont, it doesn't rain, it precipitates".

    Technically it should only be 9:31 in this timezone, seeing as day light savings was supposed to end last night but didn't due to the Commonwealth games.

    If you want to see a fast paced forum:

    http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/board.aspx?fn=wow-general

    Full of COMPLETE idiots, spammers and generally not-nice people, but that's the fastest paced forum I've ever seen. You can't post there without a WoW account, but pick a new post on the front page, and it'll be on the 3-4th page within a minute or so.

    I just came home from a wake and lunch/dinner - so I wasn't around as much as usual this Saturday. But other than that this forum is pretty fast.

    The longest time I've ever seen between replies is eleven minutes. This place quietens down between 5:00PM and 9:00PM, my time. :)

    The number of people viewing today is pretty light though. Only seems about 100 people. I've been here when that number is probably ten times higher...

    I have seen gaps much longer than that ... case in point below. In addition, there were 1-2 threads that I started some time ago that did not gather a single reply. It does happen.

    Sorry, I mean the time between replies on the New Posts page, not the time between posts in an individual thread. I'm so ineloquent today. I need to go to sleep. :eek:
