    I don't get it. Sometimes the statistics on the main page indicate there are more than 700 users online at HTF. Yet, nothing seems to be happening. Everything's so darn quiet.

    Or is that everybody is so well-behaved, loving, and friendly with each other there's not much for an admin to do at the moment? I haven't had to be jack-booted thug in at least a couple of hours or so. Instead, I spend my days answering questions about the virtues of RPTVs over direct-view sets and explaining why manual, multipoint convergence is preferable to "flash focus"-type convergence.

    This love-one-another vibe is becoming so strong that I feel ... alone.

    I dunno, Jack. If you really want, I can insult a member (you?), so you can bully me around and set my ass straight. I've been out of trouble for so long, I actually miss the "Wrath of Jack".

    I feel the love also. Must be the time of year? I'm not sure, but I like it. I'm sure it's a phase...I'm off to start a The Effects of Religion on Politics, the Upcoming Elections and Personal HTF Member Attack Thread, ought to wake you all up.

    This week, it's all about E.T.. Nothing else comes close.
    You will notice there is a rather popular thread on this subject in Software. If you are "jonesing" for new posts, perhaps you should check it out.

    Well sheesh, if you guys would stop constantly threatening to revoke our memberships, we'd probably be more rowdy :p)

    If you really want to get Jack riled up, start ripping on Kubrick instead.

    BTW, Jack, did you hear that a Russian Soyuz blew up???

    Tim: I've only now been able to access HTF after a day of trying. I just read about the Soyuz-U explosion on CNN's Website. Luckily, it was an unmanned launch carrying a satellite. STS-112 (Orbiter Atlantis) is no longer docked at the ISS, though. JB

    Any of the rest of you have trouble logging on today? This is the price we pay for such popularity! How many more servers will we be forced to buy?

    Jack,

    I just got on after trying most of the day as well. No response from the server all morning & early afternoon.
