Happy New Decade to all the lurkers

Currently Active Users: 585 (11 members and 574 guests)

You know who you are, no need to say anything. I lurk everywhere except Ecomodder, so I can relate.

As of... now ...then — it's coming up on 2AM Zulu Time.

Not everyone drives a Metro/Firefy or G1 Insight here. Just today I trailered my 1958 Canadian Beetle down-river and it's now ensconced in the carport.

It spent twenty years in that barn. It's important to not let go of your childhood dreams.

I've had this model even longer:


and this Lexus 69hp electric axle for ??? years to put in it:

The thread was inherently flawed — no-one joined up to reply. Why am I not surprised.

But 54 people [or bots] viewed it, and only 605 online at the moment.

Happy new year!

Went to a 20's dance, which was awkward because I'm the worst dancer ever. I tried though. We were the youngest people there, which is unusual because we're not very young.

What - you greet the lurkers, and then you're disappointed that they do what they do best, which is lurking and therefore not replying?

I bet they all were like "Hey, I love this guy. I would surely break my lurking habits and post to tell him so, but I feel put off by his insistence on lurking... Ah well. Lurk".

So that's that. On with the really important stuff: Happy New Year!

So that's that.
Exactly it. (And to call attention to the peanut gallery)

And the [click] Permalink #2 was an attempt to lock out the regulars, with predictable result.

I was kinda hoping someone would say the decade doesn't start until the end of this year. Then I could recite the story of the computer programmer who kept counting his luggage and getting an off by one error.

We're in the zeroth year of the decade.

Turtle Love the lurkers!

I must admit I'm a massive lurker on ecomodder, but I feel like I must defend the lurker!

10 years (and multiple vehicles) I've been on this site, very rarely do I post, but only because I have little to add.

There are so many here who are so far ahead of me in terms of knowledge or experimentation that I take more from here than I can ever hope to give.

A library is still valuable, even if none of the visitors have ever published a book!
