  • A little contest for you all

    I am so happy with the daily flow this board gets, the help we give to each other is amazing. But sometimes we have to take all the "data", the facts and figures, the fear of HCM, the Big words that are hard to say let alone type at 6am! and say lets have some meaningless fun..
    OK here is the challange..if you are all game.
    At the bottom of the board there is a line that tells you the date the most people were on the board... well it was on Tue Jan 28, 2003 7:39 pm - (funny thing the Pres. of the USA was on TV giving the State of the Union address and we were all online )
    Well That data has been up for FAR too long and I would like to see us change that.
    So here is the Date June 26, 2003 at 6:30pm EASTERN time...We need 30 of you to log in to the board. Then we can set a new record!
    Yes I know silly...meaningless...but what the heck fun all the same!
    So I hope to see you online at 6:30 Thursday!
    Oh..it will also be my moms b-day!
    Knowledge is power ... Stay informed!
    YOU can make a difference - all you have to do is try!

        Hi there,

        If you go to the first page of the discussion forums, and scroll to the bottom you will see a box at the very end that says "who is online". In that box has some cool information like newest user, who is on now and the most number at one time. Looks like it still stands for January. I for one forgot about the 26th.
