What spurred this on? We've been stuck for like 2 years at that 30-something record for the post-reboot board.

Probably some weird-assed fluke in the counter.

It's my stalker contingency. :shifty:
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I always get a bit scared when I see a new "most ever users" record broken because I believe the first time I noticed the thing was on one of the old boards when Joe died.

Actually, the all-time record was a planned event. We did a "Satch's Day" for Joe's B-day one year instead of the usual violent street brawl in a DCT thread. We picked some time midday that worked for both sides of the Atlantic and tried to set the record. Big thread where everyone was posting, and maybe the largest chatroom contingent ever. Set a mark of a little under 200 simultaneous. And everyone was all happy and felt like they'd accomplished something.

Then like 3 days later the board crashed and reset the counter to 0. And we were like "Auuuuuuuuugh...WTF, Inder! :angry: " Fitting in its own way.

I presume that any future EET WEEKS will be both ground- and record- breaking.
