Night Diane I found these pictures of Bono in Ottawa, which are kind of nice.

But once people such as Ian and I are back in university, I imagine threads will go back to taking 1-2 days to finish.

I believe our average over our entire history is about 850-900 posts a day.
That's insane.

God, I don't remember off the top of my head, heh.

I need to work on my own one. I mean, sure, there's my epic one with every UF-era song, but I mean something REALISTIC that you could imagine the band releasing, not some ultra-listing for the UF-era fanatic.

and now that we're gaining new people, the threads should finish even faster!

It's annoying sometimes! Though I really do like being able to lay in bed with this thing.

Even if it has resulted in my falling asleep whilst online before.

Yes! Though we clearly still need some people who are round 6-11am my time, since this place always dies around then. Late afternoon/early evening for you. I was thinking of timing the ultra-quick thread attempt for a Friday/Saturday night in the US, which would be Saturday/Sunday afternoon here, so we'd get both the North American crowd and the Aussie/Kiwi crowd.

By the way, which AIM account should I IM you on?

Yeah, I'm in! As long as it's not all early morning like that 'cause we're in a whole different part of the day than the Aussies.
