RS Tech: Another New Feature -From Max 03-Oct-1997 (16) RE: Another New Feature -From Max 04 Oct 97


To Max,

A million hits a month??? Twelve million hits a year????? That's incredible!!!

Also I definitely agree with keeping old postings around. Sometimes it's fun to wander through messages from a year ago & remind myself of what I did read, open some threads that I didn't read, & see what I can learn, or add.

Plus there are a few song requests that I never did get a reply for, that I bring forward every so often, to see if anyone new can help out. (That's one of the uses for my handy Tracer page!)

To Joe,

(about your message several entries back)

Sometimes when I am sitting here pretending to "work" I start laughing uncontrollably, & my whole family knows that I am reading the DT Forum.

I had just been thinking (before I read your comment) that refreshing every ninety seconds would get very annoying, since my screen often freezes temporarily while it waits for the new information to arrive. Imagine that happening at dinner, with your fork poised over the steak, while you wait for the current steak to disappear & a new one to replace it!

And you would _never_ finish dinner, unless you ate *really fast*, because your half eaten meal would keep being replaced by a new complete one!

(Two stories on this theme - Last week my kids brought home a Book Order form from a school book sale ... the ad said "The Original Virtual Reality!" And one day, walking by the lake, I pointed out to my kids how amazing it was that the sound was so realistic, it sounded almost as authentic as the wind & waves on their Carmen Sandiego computer game at home!)

Thanks for the thought! (Hmmm, I wonder what will happen when I go to have breakfast ...) :-)
