Wow, that one crept up fast. The Cemetech Forums have officially reached and surpassed twenty-five thousands posts since July 2004, when Cemetech moved from a message board to an InvisionFree forum. This site moved to better hosting in March 2005, with a new phpBB forum after 9,661 IF posts. Since then, nearly 16,000 posts have been made; unfortunately some of these were lost on July 1, 2005, when the site database was hacked. Nevertheless, the forum continues to grow. We have 140 registered users, maybe 15 of whom post on a daily basis. The simultaneous users record is a surprising 42 from when I released information on putting the GIMP on a USB flash drive this past summer. If you have yet to do so, register and post!
In addition, I have finally fixed the online users bug in the sidebar. The debug line at the top of the page has been removed, and users are now colored based on their rank (moderator/admin/normal).
