    Woody,

    Our first month here on ih8mud has been a lot of fun and those of us that frequent the 80s section really appreciate your rescue of this group from the ashes of what was the SOR forum. We also appreciate the time and work it takes to keep this running smoothly.

    Thanks also to Gumby; he's been a great moderator and participant in this section.

    As Jim would say... Cheers!
    :beer:

    MORE than welcome....we (meaning me and the birfield.com gang) are working on more changes/updates to what goes on. We've mostly weathered the increased traffic, and hopefully some of the things we are looking to in the future will make things just that much better!

    ih8mud.com alone is averaging almost 84,000 hits per DAY in April with over 800 visits per day average and is running at over 2.3 million hits for the month of April thus far! :eek:

    118,000 hits on the 21st of April alone...

    yikes.... :beer:

    Yeah, Woody, but how many of the 118k hits was wench? [​IMG] :D

    Seriously - thanks. Hadn't ever really poked around here much, but now I hardly ever go to any of the other sites.

    Thanks for putting up with us. [​IMG]

    Agreed---thanks Woody! At first I was concerned because from home I was having problems getting in, but that was resolved quickly (and a personal note, to boot!) and now I like this setup quite a bit more than the SOR forum, in large part because of the other forums here (Chit Chat, Trail Runs, etc.).

    FYI, "hits" is not a good measurement of site usage (though is a reasonable measurement of overall site activity), but visits is. A hit is anytime a file is pulled from the server, so the page plus every file referenced on it (each graphic is one file). For example, here I add five more hits everytime someone reads this thread:

    :) ;) :D :D :eek:

    Regardless, there's a lot of activity and your support and great efforts are much appreciated! :G (had to add one more hit, you know!)

    Yes I'll agree with everyone this site picking up the Sor forum is greatly appreciated. Seems like the right time for a Paypal donation!

    Thanks Woody

    I too would like to give a Thanks :beer:

    SOR's constant mothering was kind of a drag, I mean we should be able to say what we want? That is except for Wench 8)
    Woody, were you ever able to pull anything off those SOR cd's? or did I miss that post.
