Sometimes I get the impression that I live in a totally different time zone compared to everybody else. Nothing happens while I am logged in, and then I go away and come back and everything has happened in my absence.

Either there is a conspiracy directed against myself, in which case the idea won't help. Or there are certain times when there are more people here than otherwise. I would like to see the statistics - at what time of the day do people post the most? Maybe also run the statistics separately for ideas and annotations - some parts of the day we might be more creative, other times just idly commenting others' ideas.

People could then choose, if they wanted to, to post at a time when annotations are most probable to happen (if they like seeing the croissants pop in) or at a time when ideas are most infrequent (to get all the attention).

       My observation:   

       (Eastern standard time -0500 UTC)   

       The day begins at about 2:30 with UK postings (often Rods Tiger) which continue while I am sleeping. A lot of activity from about 8:00 on through about 12:30 and then tapering off to a dribble. Some mild evening activity from about 19:00 to 21:00 and then hardly anything the rest of the night until it starts all over again.   

       Monday seems to be the heaviest but Saturday can be busy as well.

       is that the aussie Nora, the Yorkshire Nora or the one somewhere in the depths of Dakota.

       Well, if I must mutter, at least I have serious things about which to mutter. However, I was not sneaking. I had an appointment to keep.   

       Welcome back, bliss.
