The Visitor Statistics section doesn’t seem to be working. (The forum now feels like an episode from the Twilight Zone: it’s freaking me out!  blank stare)

At the bottom of the main page. It tells you who is logged in, and how many guests are lurking around. Anytime I log in I only see my name and one guest. I know it doesn’t make much of a difference but knowing that other people are in the forum at the same time felt more sociable.

I’ve noticed that too, George.  However, because we have members across a wide range of time zones, some tend to be active while others are asleep or at work.  In fact, I’ve sometimes been surprised when I see someone whose approximate location I’m aware of happening to be on at the same time I am.  I realize that the person is posting at, say, 3:00 AM his time.  Surely there must some better way to deal with insomnia. LOL

Yeah, sometimes there’s nobody, sometimes there are bunches. No rhyme or reason so far as I can tell. Just randomness ...

No, Doug, that’s not it. There is a technical problem. I logged in in Safari and when I opened the same page in Firefox I couldn’t see my name.

Huh. Maybe some of the web browsers don’t supply the right info to the forum program? This is an issue for our techies ...
