Did you ever see what the peeping toms see?

when i work midnights, i have to do things to keep myself awake, especially when i know that i have something to work on that requires more-than-a-monkey's brain to be able to fix.

this has led me to look around this site, and one of the things that i've found interesting was the old threads that "guests" were viewing.

the greatest value would seem to be the way both the questions are answered AND asked.

so, i've found a neat way to see what people were asking was to see what guests were viewing.

i guess i'm spying on the peeping tom.

try it and see what you think. it'd be interesting to dredge up old threads.

Well my monkey's brain still isn't up to ape speed yet. How do you tell which thread a guest is viewing?

I think BT's talking about Who's Online, through the Quick Links in the blue bar on top. I've done that a few times, and it is amazing what you find in DC's bowels! It's also handy when you are having a conversation with someone but need to leave DC, and you can see if the other person is even reading your part of the conversation. I can then go to bed with a clear conscience that I am not leaving someone hanging.

Most of the guest are not real people. They are computer programs that companies like Google use to get info for their sites.

Buckytom, I think there's a 12-step for your peeping-tom-itis.......lol

Actually, I've done the same *(back when life was much slower)* and it is fascinating! It has also reminded me of wonderful recipes and ideas.

Perhaps we should all just go back into the archives and find something great and make it this week. I'm up for it.
