4 ducks in a row!

( and still they come..... :-) )

I was just thinking back to when the Pi pre-alpha prototype made its first appearance on the BBC, and when the Pi website was essentially the contents of the "About Us" page....

Things have changed, and thats GOOD!

And as we get closer to the release date that number will probably grow exponentially. I think this is the first time I've seen a product with so much interest before even a beta board has been made. 0_o

So, it will be easy to get 5000 members.
And, if each one buy 2 boards.... all the first batch goes in one day.

4927 @ 11:11. That's 18 new members in ~22 hrs - 74 minutes per member.
We need 73 more to reach the 5000.
Should happen in ~90 hours = <4 days. Round 7am on Christmas Day!

5000 reached with pics of populated boards. The excitement seems to have nearly done for the forum though!!!

5000 signups before Xmas, whp'd have thought it? - we're all doomed!

We'll end up with -1 boards each when they go on sale.... 8-)

There are probably people failing to register because the stress on the site is so high. We should have sweep for when it hits 10,000. My guess is it will be very soon.

Membership:

There are 5903 Members

Certainly looks like the Forum will breach the 6K boundary before 2012.  Where ARE all these people coming from? 

( 3+3  Is it taking the michael? )

Just looked at the stats panel: apart from the 21 members currently online, there were "244 Guests".  Amazing!

They must all be prowling, looking for an announcment on the eBaying of the beta boards...

btw  Only another 20 signups needed to crack the 6k membership barrier before 2011 - if any of those guests are looking, join NOW!
