never forget: nov 9, 2019
« on: Tue, 12 May 2020, 23:17:02 »


on the night of nov 9, 2019, there were the most users on geekhack ever.

remember that day when.. uh.  wtf happened that day?  cc wasn't around, and i can't remember any big custom board GB or ETF sale.

maybe it was a new tp post.

yeah, i am stumped.  23k is a lot of people.  it might be just a bug with the forum.  the stats also show that dalesnail has 8 million posts:

This is the computer age. Any computer can keep dates in order for you (as for searching file names in a directory list) as 2020-11-09 or 20201109, otherwise somebody or some thing has to interpret or convert it somehow.
“You know, my uncle was a great person. He was at MIT. He taught at MIT for, I think, like a record number of years. He was a great super genius. Dr. John Trump. I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it. Every one of these doctors said, 'How do you know so much about this?' Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.” – Donald Trump at the CDC 2020-03-07

Checked to see if I had any purchases around that time that could've been important, but nothing that would attract that many people to the forums.

Those posts are not reliable. I have been up to about 5K-8K more than once and suddenly got reset to somewhere between zero and 1/3 of my previous count.

It was understandable with r00tw0rm and then again a few years ago when the entire underlying structure was re-jiggered, but I look at those counts as somewhat random.

Maybe Dale Snail has figured a way to siphon off everyone else's posts into his own tally.

Maybe they stopped counting the Offtopic posts towards your total count?
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

They did make that change at some point a few years ago.
