Aye I saw it too. It was all unregistered visitors. No idea why. Did someone link here from somewhere busy on FB or something?

Clearly it was the UK not leaving the EU inspired lots of people to look back at historically successful UK businesses that continue to do well, like, erm, Sinclair.

Or post-Halloween lots of parents were gorging on the sweets their children had secured from trick or treating, and were reminiscing about their own youth of cold October's doing the hold-your-breath-and-see-if-that-makes-it-load dance.

If only there was some correlation between these numbers and numbers of posts...

Come on lurkers, go out of the shadows and make some interesting talk! ;)

Actually, according to various sources, most people in most places in the web are lurkers. They can even make 90% of people reading some content.

And each of us is probably a lurker here and there. For me, Spectrum Computing is one of few places where I actually post.
That's why I'd like to see some discussion here ;) It's not bad here but always could be better.

Occasionally I drop a link to this (and other forums) in the other forums that I am a member of.

That could account for a small number of visitors. But I suspect that either another web site posted a link, or maybe one, or more search engines are sending people here.

And yes, it’s typical that there are far more visitors who are not members, or members that are not logged in, than there are logged in members.
