    We've added a whopping 1,749 more users in the last 24 hours.  This is a continuation going back to May where we've been absolutely flooded with new users.  I'm pretty sure almost all of these new users are spammers or bots.  While the rate had been getting faster, it seems they suddenly started slowing down right when Hurricane Sandy hit.  It slowed down to under 1,000 new users in a 24-hour period, and we were back down to somewhat over 100 new users every 24 hours or so, until about January 30th, when it exploded again.  What are they planning?


    And for your Diary Rescue music pleasure, here's Coldplay's "Yellow".

      And screw the numbers ending in zero. I wanna know who number 666.666. Now that's interesting!

      One time back in the early 80's I was working as a barista in the days before they were called baristas, and a customer's tab came out to exactly $6.66. I made a joke that they needed to buy something else to change their tab total, because, hey, 666 ya know. They laughed, but still they bought an additional pastry item. Said they weren't taking any chances, now that I'd called it to their attention.
