Question Too quiet!

Is it just me or this site is all of a sudden gone dead?
Are people too busy with their new XA boards or has the fear of terror and imminent war made everyone pack up their stereo and head for the caverns?

Yes, what has happend?
It can go half an hour between postings.

If this goes on, I have to change into
doing soething else. Not to get bored.

It is slightly better on Sunday/Mondays.

My guess is that the married men can not use the PC,
because their wifes has decided to use the PC
to write emails to eachother.

Those little men are put aside, like when the wifes
had decided to use the telephone - in them old days.
-----------------------------------------
And we all know how powerless a man is
compared with his woman.

My thoughts ...

During the past couple of months, we have a lot of group orders going on and now that we got all ours parts, it would keep a lot of us busy for at least a couple of months. If it continue to have lack of posting here, it would mean that a lot of people are very successful in whatever they were building which also means that a lot of informations that were gathered here were very accurate and helpful.

I have always wondered why members don't post more at night or on the weekends. I have noticed that the most posting were done during the "business hours". The recent lack of posting here could be due to people losing jobs and they were no longer in front of the computer but rather out in the field looking for work.

Another possible reason could be people are running out of money to support this addictive hobby. I personally can't afford to build every projects that I'm interested in.

Members are taking a break (meaning turning off the computers) and finally sitting down to enjoy what they have built?

Don't you see the connection between your own two statements? Maybe they are out of a job and looking for work because they spent too much time at work posting here!!

fcel,

You've got me pegged except when I'm not buying boards or resistors or stuff, I'm answering emails up the wazoo. I was sending emails last night at 1:00am your time!

I am really missing your acrimonious tongue.
I am also missing your philosophical tongue.

You cowardice!

Halo, since you live in Lycksele in north of Sweden, go out and ski! Don't sit in all day (and night) long! You have a great nature up there.

You could also do something yourself....

Picture of myself in Sweden. I saw also a couple of icebears....
