Most ever on line
« on: November 17, 2013, 08:48:56 PM »
So for some reason I scrolled all the way to the bottom of the forum listing and saw the static of

Most Online Today: 44. Most Online Ever: 406 (February 20, 2013, 12:43:17 PM)

So I gotta know, what in the world was going on on Feb 20 that so many people were on line?

It might well have had something to do with NHC. I can't really remember.

IIRC, an online magazine article about homebrewing linked to this forum around that time.

Wow, talk about a stroll down memory lane.  Hard to believe that was over two years ago.
