I just couldn't get into the diary thread the past few times I tried it. Too fast, too many posts to keep up with, probably what would happen here if we added 100 semi-regular posters suddenly. I know you're supposed to just pick what you want to talk about and ignore the rest, but I'm one of those people who has to read every post. I think I'll start lurking there for a while and see if I can find the rhythm. I kind of jumped in head first the last few times.
I hope you're right and that things pick up over here in the next few months. I've seen planx over in the land of eyepatches and booty. I signed up over there mainly to read the charts. I think I've made one post. Just not my kind of place, really.
