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?

A Happy and Blessed early Birthday to His All Holiness.

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