Sure RackSpace would notice that spike

I was pondering the combined knowledge of 250,000 WHT members, how many are still active members from around the 1st 1,000+, (sad to say) how many have even died or even killed (murdered)! plus the hosting providers that have come & gone in that time

I'll stop pondering before I crack-up altogether

No complaints here! I've got into moods where I attempt to help as many people as I can... Pressing "New Posts" can be scary on a busy day.

Well done WHT!

It would be nice to see who of the first 1000 are still about and active on the forums.

I'm pretty sure WHT is no longer hosted by Rackspace.

It was temporarily moved to Softlayer until the new rackspace system was put online

Besides,

Registered Members: 225,082

Am I the only one who thinks we are not 9 to go to 250,000?

Ah right, that was when WHT was compromised and had to be restored from an older backup. Seems so long ago that now.

I can answer that.

Thanks to my friends cron, wget, grep, sort, unique and pipe, I can safely say that in the last 24 hours there have been 10 users with IDs under 1000 logged in.

WHT is about 25k away from quarter of a million. And I bet a lot of the users registered are inactive, or have multiple ID's so it's not actually 225,000 unique users.
