What was that about?
The longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, and 779 people were logged on.

How about setting a new record? Someone name a date and a time, based on the HUBB clock - but not 06:46 please.
Is that how the last one was set?

OK, daft, boring, middle-of-winter idea. :rolleyes2:

Dave, great idea but by the looks of things people are either virtually drunk or just cant be bothered.

I am well up for it but will need to be at work or down the Library as my home PC is up the kyber.

Still it aint gona be much of a record just 2 of us.

776 to go
Hmm, Maybe not such a daft idea!

Just need another 776 folk to join in to set a new record - maybe in the middle of the northern winter? Perhaps those in the south can set their own record when they are huddled around the fire in the snow (21st June - was there something about that date in 2007?)?

-- there's nearly 14000 members signed up to this website now BTW, so it is certainly doable. :rolleyes2:

Not at ALL!! Honestly --- we LOVE counting Hubbers!!

I'm only responding out of pure politeness and respect for Walkabout. And I don't really mean it all.

I know that it is still a few months away, but why not plan it for the same date? For whatever reason, last year there were a lot of people using the HUBB at that time. This year June 21 is on a Saturday. I admit that 0646 is a little early in the morning for the weekend (mind you, during the week my alarm goes off at 0430). But that time was obviously good for the rest of the planet. So maybe we can tweak it slightly and pitch it about 0700. Any wimpy Europeans can always go back to bed afterwards. According to the world clock (timeanddate.com) 0700 (London) = 1600 (Sydney) = 2300 (Friday) (San Francisco) - apologies to any New Yorkers but your time will be 0200 - but then you claim you never sleep!

I hope the HUBB bar serves good coffee! So if you are around on the June 21 I'll get the first round in - 999 pints and 1 coffee!
