Default Three years ago!

It is an anniversary - Three years ago these Forums went live - It been an amazing three years (to say the least)..

Surpisingly perhaps, (to me at least) it took Terry Lee a while to talk me into trying to create this place (the final straw was, of course, when he said he'd pay for the first year - Thanks Terry and Tartantown for that 'nudge').

Now, after three years, it seems pretty clear to me that we're on to something pretty good here. I fully know that this is a massive team effort (with thousands on the team).. THANKS to all of you for your support, for visiting and participating; THANKS to the moderators for their time, effort, support and guidance; and THANKS to the sponsors for the financial support.

Just a small 'fun with numbers'- I won't use the charts (even though I have 'em) :
We're still growing (!) - at this point I have given up being amazed, and I have no idea where or when it will end (the growth I mean - who could have guessed there would be so many pipers and drummers online?) ..

Our growth - 24 of our 36 months online have set new records for our busiest month ever. In fact, 5 of the last 7 months have set the new record for our busiest month ever.

Our first full month was December of 2001 - where we had over 225,000 home page visits (a BIG shock to me - I was expecting 20-30,000 ) - FWIW This month looks like another record month, probably in excess of 825,000 home page visits - in fact our growth has been a surprisingly steady 60+% a year - and it continues..

THANKS to all of you - we're having some kind of fun ..
