The forums are WICKED CRAZY! :D


I have been a bit more busy these last couple of days than usual, so I don't get to come to the forums but maybe twice a day now, rather than linger for 12 hours a pop. Anyway..

This place has been VERY busy! I see nearly 2000 new threads at my twice a day splits, that's what, nearly 4000 new posts a day!

Glad to see we have so much participation, I sure hope that a lot of the [new] posts aren't going unanswered, everyone who can, please do your best to answer the 0 reply threads with good answers! Thank You for those who already do!

Cool

I wish my message board got this much stuff going on it, of course I have a small FREE message board, and only 69 members.. I pay my respect to other small boards, and believe me there are smaller ones then mine, I also pay my respect to these bigger boards.. Since I am a geek and I have no life other then sitting on the internet.. and this board is the only board I can get Linux help at.. and even know I am a geek I need alot of Linux help!

Between work, the wife and the kids I'm lucky to log a couple hours a day on the internet. I try to divide that between this BBS, freshmeat.net email and a few other sites.

It's busy. I try to spend as much time as I can on the internet. And when I'm on I have at least 1 or 2 opera windows devoted to LQ. It's a great place to help people and learn.

It's hard to keep up with the posts since there are so many! But hey, that's a good thing

It might be more like 21 hours, I mean I have to eat, and do a few other things.. other then that my saturdays are free, and with Coffe and Soda, and Tea and plenty of food I can stay up for a day, and since my saturdays are free I spend that day on the computer..

I do get to spend about 4 hours a day online through the week and 6 to 8 on the weekend. That will have to suffice me till I win the powerball lottery
