Shame that only eight or so people actually listened to the Prog Island!

Yeah, but at least we had a good time doing it.

And actually, if you think about it, that's when we started making noise to others about Porcupine Tree. I specifically remember Zoots hearing Arriving Somewhere for the first time from GG's list and getting hooked.

My lasting memory is of Zoots freaking out after hearing Siberian Khatru for the first time.

Yep.

That was also when my premium membership without warning expired and you suddenly ended up making the polls, I think.

It happened right in the middle of it, I believe.

In fact, I'd like to do another mini one at some point, based on another genre, like electronica or something.
what are the specific rules for the mini ones?

I don't think you'd be the only one.

However, I doubt we'd get 20 people if we did it too soon. That's why I recommended waiting until at least July in the DI thread. While us regulars would do it again instantly, not everyone else would. And a few of the participants this time dropped off the face of the Earth during this one, so we'd certainly lose them.

Yeah, I think we were just about to hit the finals or something. It was handy though, since I was about to head to New Zealand for over a week without Internet access.
