Yep, and I'm still feeling the pain of over induldging on that particular day. Ouch.
I've noticed over the past few months the 'most visitors on one day' has been creeping up. It's probably just spam harvester bots connecting multiple times or something that give the impression there's more users than their really are. I also remember in the past the odd occasion when you yourself Gargoyle seemed to leave a trail of extra visitors to the board somehow, possibly something to do with AOL back then.
I imagine the most number of people online here at any one time is probably still when Jon Lee died. The old site was getting a visitor every minute for about 36 hours and many came to this board. Twenty at any one time was possible at that time. Can't see how there could be more than that.
Yea, I thought you said you were just popping out for a bit of fresh air and a pint of semi-skinned milk from the grocery store, and you ended up disappearing for ages. We're still waiting for those cups of tea and rich tea biscuits you were going to make us before you did your disappearing act.
