I don't think that Ben would be too happy with you if the forum crashed through over use, and he had to spend all weekend rebuilding it. :doh: :lol:

Thats what I am afraid of matey. As I said I don't know whether the idea could ever succeed due to the technical implications, but hey we coped with 60 users at once. Why not 61!! :dance:

I'd love to see it for a giggle. The funny thing about that day with the 60 users was that there was nothing happening! :shock:

It was a totally random event. Its very odd when you consider what has been relesed since, but we've never come close.

Hi Ben

Well if its ok with yourself & the top cheeses here and anyone else who fancies it, why not give it a go and set an event date?

Perhaps a weekend would suit the majority? :think:

TBH Ben

I thought we were going to bust it at least twice recently

Not only because of the release but beacuse there are a lot more members now

Random numbers are funny things

I thought so too Garry. What with the number of members and the Hunter 2 holer and 748, I thought it was a cert, but the most I saw was 37! :shock:

I've always considered that magic '60' as spurious anyway :think:

Is there any point?

Is that not like saying last June there was a six mile traffic jam, if a lot of us got together perhaps we could make it twelve.

I don't know if it would jam things up or just irritate because everything happens at once.

Maybe I'm just a miserable old fart. :sad:

You can be part of history! You can always look at that record and know you were part of it, something to tell your grand kids about.

But I will probably be busy elseware.
