Slow Day?

The place to kick back, relax, post general bullshit, and grill a few on the BBQ. Whatever doesn't fit into another forum would go here. We periodically go through and move posts to the correct forum, but we do charge a case of Beer every time we have to.

Slow Day?

Or perhaps its a busy day for everyone since there isn't a whole of posting going on....

I started work Monday. Working for a different company this summer, so I have internet on my PC.
I check the forums every 10-15 mins...

well...we have had 78 posts so far...compared to 7 on the other forum...based upon the thread in TSSO

but we do normally go through lulls throughout the day...we have periods where we'll post 50-80 posts...break for a couple hours...post another 40-50...break...etc..

Gotcha...

Yeah normally when I only check the forums in the evening.. or once every couple of days...

There is an INSANE amount of posts to get through.

So many that some days I don't bother checking because I know I'll have a lot of posts to go through and I don't feel like doing it at the time, which just adds even more for later.... lol

Right now we're at an average of 124.20 posts a day which is 45333 a year...not too shabby :D

I try to keep tabs on traffic/posts/etc as best I can...I find our stats interesting...we generally post 200+ a day Mon- Thurs...then it sinks from Fri-Sun to less than 100.

The weekends are killers :D

I'm going out to some field testing and data gathering on a sensor today :)

Sensor is going down to the US/Mexico border to be used for border control.
