A Question for you guys
« on: September 09, 2009, 09:12:31 pm »
Ok

Thank you all for logging in and saying hello. ;D

Want to ask you all a question - this will/may give you a clue as to what I was trying to achieve today. :)

Question:-

What was so important on the 29th February 2008, that made 79 people log into TAS?

Was it:-
To propose to someone seeing as though it was a leapyear date?
To attend a meeting that someone had set up here?
A computer blip, and it just thought everyone logged on cause it got an extra day in the year?
For another reason that I have not thought of? ???

I have read posts of that day, on several big users, and most of them didn't even log in that day.
It intrigues me to know why, on a leap year day, over a year ago, we had the most users on line.

Anyone shed a LIGHT on it  ??? ??? ::) ;D

It was probably horrible weather outside and everyone was just hiding!

My guess would be that there wasn't 79 people logged in at the same time, but that Dan had performed some form of forum maintenance which artificially logs multiple people as being logged in at the same time.

It's pretty standard with different forum software for that to happen.

Only if I'm right!

But I've run specific-instance forums myself in the past and it's something phpBB in particular is really bad for. Cross-grade the install and it would simply list everyone with an active account as being logged in at that point. Not quite what's happened here (I counted new members between launch & Feb 29th 2008 to check), but it's still at least a reasonable option unless Dan is able to state he did no maintenance on that date.

I'm also trying to recall if SMF logs guests or only logged in users for the stats... but I can't be bothered setting up a dummy install to test it  ::)

 

Anyone know or use these guys
