    see the academic papers now on "Growth Trends in MWM Membership
    as a Function of Fluctuations in U.S. Employment." :lol:

    We may not constitute a proper legion, but perhaps we'd
    qualify as the New Golden Horde until our Legion Certification
    comes in. ;)

    A legion? Sounds more like a little over 2 cohorts!

    (A Roman legion was approximately 5,000 men. It varied a little over time,
    from around 4800 to over 5200, depending on the system of organization.)

    Still, 1,000 people is an impressive accomplishment.

      That's only a temporary thing, DeepFixer.

      I guess we can say it's a calm before the storm?

        Well, since we started this thing, counting the end of December, about 10 months. So, let's see. That's 1,000 divided by 10, Fuck, I gotta go get the calculator...

        The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

          Well if you use Macs, i think since Operating System 7.1,
          a desktop calculator was available.

          I think it was no longer available on system 9.

          I wonder why? :?:

          We need it for the Legion Calculation!!

                And don't forget that Centurions must be appointed. I think the
                position of Imperator is taken. ;)

                      I guess we are all Berry's and Mike's cohorts. 8)

                                I've been paying casual attention to the growth rate of membership in MWM over the last several months. Extrapolating the current trend, I predict we'll hit 2000 members sometime in early July.

                                There are a lot of "guests" who look at the site, and there are also a number of members who join but are no longer, or never became, active participants. Hard to say what the effective participation is these days without more data.
