    Out of curiosity...

    When there are 39 users online, but there are only 28 people viewing forums, what are the other 11 doing?

    Just wondering, of course.

    My guess is that there is a ~3 minute cooldown time (I used to play WC3 btw) before the users that are away get taken off the list. Or they're afk, or they're at the C Board index being afk. imho.

    Viewing profiles, PMs, or no particular forum perhaps...
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    I'll idle while doing other things (like real work ).
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left.
