  1. Athe bottom of the forum page It says "most users ever online was 6/16/2008" and that 7000+ people visited that day, or were online at the same time, I'm not sure which. Anywho, from the daily list of visitors I have seen nearly every day since then It appears that that number has never been close to being matched. I am curious if anyone knows if their was a specific news event, release or something that happened that day? or was it just raining everywhere?

    I've seen that and asked myself the same question a few times. I have no idea what happened on June 16, 2008. Maybe Julio has some insight.

    From what I can tell, Microsoft's messenger stopped working for a few hours and we ranked high on Google for a solution. Of course, we couldn't help it since the network was temporarily down but people were looking for potential issues.
