    Where Did All These Folks Come From

    Wow! Suddenly we've passed 20,000 members - maybe(?). Wasn't it just a few months ago that 10,000 were here? Pretty soon the woods will be covered by "hammockers".

    When I recently joined the Mod team, I was surprised at the numbers of new users I was validating, and I'm certain that I'm only doing a small portion of them... Every time I login (several times a day on weekends) it seems there are another 3-5 people signing up. One Saturday, I had a dozen waiting in the morning, and more throughout the day.

    HF is a great place to hang out, and the people and attitudes here keep me coming back!
