So what are they doing?

It's 3:03am local time (est), and there are 210 "guests" logged on. What exactly are they doing?

Bob

Quite likely those are the Google "bots" or spiders or whatever we call them now. They are automated little dealies that search for information. They are the reason we have to make sure thread titles reflect the content of the threads. If Google is picking us up a lot then we will be "hit" more in answer to questions that folks type in. More traffic = more members to play with!

The more interesting question, Bob, is what are YOU doing on the computer at 3:03 am? Insomnia?

Hi Karen! It's now 1:28am local, and I'm still looking for nice people to correspond with :-)

Well, not really, but I was thinking about your post.
