What Was Going on Here?
« on: January 15, 2020, 07:17:35 AM »

What was going on at 8:30 PM on January 13th to attract 462 viewers to be on line here?

Any ideas why the interest?

Nothing...  I suspect those are bots or other non-human visits looking for spam opportunities.

The level of spam and bot traffic on the internet is amazing.  I'm surprised the whole thing doesn't collapse under the weight of it all.

I'm not sure I have access to that info...  It would have been back in the heyday when we were on a different server/service anyway.

Lately I have been dodging the tumbleweeds!  ;)

That sounds more like Las Vegas than Tampa. If that is the case, please let us know what you see that strikes your fancy.

I see there were 814 "guests" on at about 4:00 in the morning.

The winter weather in the quad cities area must be confining for anyone to be concerned about the number of hits on the forum at any particular time of day or night.

About as bored as a Texan who is inclined to comment on it.    ;)

I'm kind of amazed and really do not understand what this is all about.  I do not see it on any of the other places on line that I stop.

It seems to be the only thing going on here also, I agree with the Moderator's tumbleweed statement.

I agree...it was 69 degrees here yesterday! I had to put socks on.
