    Thought you might like some figures to show how fast this board is growing...

    The High Road started operations "officially" at 12 noon, Central time, on Christmas Eve. At that time, there were 94 registered users (all of us in the setup team, plus forty or fifty others who'd crept in while we had the beta site up for testing - we let them stay! :D ).

    As of 6 p.m. Central time today, we had 1,222 members. This means that a new user has registered, on average, every 2 minutes 52 seconds since we opened the doors.

    I didn't log the thread and post numbers on opening, but as of 11 p.m. Central time on Christmas Eve we had 252 threads and 2,120 posts. As of 6 p.m. Central time today, we had 505 threads and 5,662 posts. This means that over the past 43 hours, you talkative lot have been averaging one new thread every 10 minutes and 12 seconds, and a new post every three-quarters of a second!

    Well done, folks. I think we're off to a cracking good start on our journey down The High Road!

    Not quite, Plan-B... All of us in the advance team were posting to one another, starting test threads, deleting them, moving them, editing them, and so on. Thus, we all got a head start on our post numbers before opening day! Still, I'm enjoying the rush. Isn't it just great to see all the old familiar faces (well, usernames!) come rolling through the doors?

    The bad thing is that at this rate we're all going to run out of things to say soon.

    Yeah, right...

    I think we can double those numbers easily enough. Heck, Blackhawk should be able to do it in another couple of days by himself:D

    It'll save Blackhawk money in the long run...

    Both on wear and tear on his guns, and in ammo costs. Why?

    Because he's too busy posting here to actually head out to the range!

    :D
