What was going on on 4/24/06

What was the big attraction on that day that over a thousand registered users were logged on?

Was it 'give away' day at the local meat house?

Was it a holiday?

Was it a contest??


I gotta know...

My guess is that it was just a search engine thingy. I think that's what GB has said before.

Either that, or it's the day that we finally got to see what Phinz really looked like.......oh yeah, that hasn't happened yet!

We just got lucky that day - mostly spiders.

We get really busy around Christmas and the 1st of January.

Spider or bots are sent out by search engines to look for web pages. They make a copy and go back to the search engine for later processing.

How do you know what's under my desk? I'd like to clean under there, but I'm afraid... Why do you think I keep my feet up on the chair when I type?


Thank you for the explanation, by the way.

Actually 4/24/06 was twelve days after mine and Sizzlin's birthday so everyone on here was still partying with us

But seriously, I think it was just search engines that day
