Gotta love our forums community. :)

  • https://launchpad.net/~flimm Flimm

    Where am I? :(

  • http://moxiefoxtrot.com Ryan Troy

    Cool stuff eh? :)

  • Hongli Lai

    I wonder how many of those are spambots.

  • http://dylanmccall.blogspot.com Dylan McCall

    Hah, I’m on that list!

  • http://mrooney.blogspot.com Mike Rooney

    Hey Jono! That is cool indeed. What is quite surprising to me is the high ratio of guests to members. I would not expect it to be about 13 to 1. I wonder what causes that?

  • Roger Mudd

    Just under 7 percent of the active users at that time were registered. That strikes me as a small percentage. Wonder why that is?

  • http://www.jaduncan.com jaduncan

    The community is communised and named using community tools… ;)

  • http://matthewhelmke.net/ matthew

    Thanks for the shoutout, Jono!

  • http://www.fooishbar.org daniels

    Wow, eight comments on here: Dylan McCall, Flimm, Hongli Lai, jaduncan, matthew, Mike Rooney, Roger Mudd and Ryan Troy.

    Good job guys! Let’s keep communitising this community of Jono’s blog comments and nothing can stop us now (except the potential distraction of a DVD).

  • foo

    Shame Debian forums aren’t that active :/

    Perhaps Ubuntu would like to lend us some of their community? Its another way to give back to Debian!

  • http://ogunderground.com Kevin Lange

    “…WindowsSucks…” You caught me ;) Nice timing, I expected not to see myself in that list.

  • PriceChild

    Did you see this bit too:

    Most users ever online was 24,635, November 11th, 2008 at 06:39 PM.

  • But…

    It would be far more interesting to know how many people were online because they needed assistance in getting something done with Ubuntu. If that number of people is going up (relatively), it’s no reason to rejoice…

    quality != quantity

    I am not online for once :)

    Vanadium redox batteries have been demonstrated in applications such as load-levelling the power generated by a wind farm, powering a house using solar energy and in a prototype electric vehicle.
