OC.net's 3rd Leap Day
« on: February 28, 2012, 12:08:53 PM »
Tomorrow will be the 3rd leap day in OC.net's history.  Studying leap days can be an excellent way to see progress over a time span; to wit:

OC.net's first one, in 2004, saw only 20 new posts and 5 new topics; 3 people joined the forum that day, and the site had 1,835 hits.

The second one, in 2008, saw 128 new posts and 7 new topics; no one joined the forum that day, but the site enjoyed 18,317 hits.

From the first day to the second we saw an over five-fold increase in new posts and 10x the number of hits.  What will tomorrow hold for us?
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

A Happy and Blessed early Birthday to His All Holiness.

PS  The drinking age in the US is 21.  Not sure about smoking

Alabama you used to have to be 19 to smoke.

Well, I was all gung ho.....and stood in the aisle at work, looking this way and that.....and didn't say anyone to propose to....so, I sat back down.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I sat on a park bench to eat lunch with a work colleague and the only males we attracted where after the bread in our sandwiches LOL

The rules changed.  There was no leap day.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.
