Cool stats. I found me on the who's on now. Mine is listed as my IP adress with the last piece missing. I guess that's what 2 firewalls gets you (software computer level firewall and network router level firewall).

Someone was viewing the forums from Harvard too.

Google brings quite a few people to the forums also.

A lot of Americans visit this site also.

I found a pie chart break down of countries too.

I'm suspicious of those results.  I don't see Italy, Austria, or Poland.  But I see Kazakstan, Egypt and Ecuador?

Canucks call Brits limeys too! I didn't know Canadians used limeys for the British folk.

I'm from the U.S., but more often than not I wish I was from another country.  Japan, Canada, Australia, Wales, just about anywhere else would be pretty damn cool.
Honor is what you know of yourself. Reputation is what others think they know about you. Live by honor and let your reputation lie where it may. And outlive the bastards.

One day I will rule the world with my army of a mole of moles!

I saw two users from 'Palestinian Territory, Occupied' That's nice.

Don't ask me why, but I appear to be in 'San Sisto, Emilia-Romagna', while I'm from the city of Bologna (San Sisto is a small village)! >:(

Yes, I know.  :D
However, in Italy, we call it 'Mortadella', which is also the nickname (not only among his opponents) of our new prime minister, who actually is from Bologna.

...Prodi (the italian prime minister) is also called "Tortellino" or "Faccia da tortellino" which means "tortellino" and "tortellino face"...  ;D

By the way, I just noticed that I appear in Feldkirchen which is pretty far away from Feldkirch (where I actually live... :P )

I don't even show up on that map. I guess it doesn't like me.
