A new record!

Post by or2az » Sat Aug 16, 2014 5:39 am

A new record! 29 users online. 28 guests and me. So cool watching it happen.
Addendum: It appears this record has been broken again, and in a short amount of time.
November 12th, 34 users online.

Wow, that´s a lot of people!
Life is as beautiful as you want it to be, but it´s only one. That´s why you must not get tired of it. Don´t care if you don´t say something that seems "important" because your mere existence is important for someone.

The record for users online was broken 4 times in 5 nights, just after midnight, pacific time, USA .
After that, zero, nada, nothing, zilch. The swarm appeared each night for a short period and then just disappeared. Very strange that 90% of them were just hanging out on the index page. I'm starting to wonder if they ever actually existed at all, except in cyberspace, if that's even possible.
8/15/14....29
11/12/14...34
and then
9/11/15....43
9/13/15....47
9/14/15....54
9/15/15....55

Well, its been almost 10 months and I see that the record was broken again a few days ago. 67 users online!
Happened in the afternoon this time (my location), so I missed being part of this one. Too bad!
(Now if only all those people would register and start posting)

This doesn't yield the same kind of thrill for me like it used to but I thought I'd keep it up to date.
I noticed on 3/31/19, almost 3 years since the last time, we had a record 94 people online at the same time.

Quite remarkable though, I wonder if we will ever reach 100.

I've often noticed and pondered that statistic. Given that I only ever see one or two users online (including myself), these figures must be artificially high. They seem rather low for a serious DDoS attack so my best guess would be multiple spambots trying to bypass the (cunningly mahjong-themed) registration process using brute force...?

I've often suspected something weird was going on (see 9/16/15 post above) but not being an expert (or even half an expert) on computers, I just went along for the ride, and had some fun.
