I just want to say wow, and congratulations, matt.

so far, I must say (napster/nader/election mania notwithstanding) I think metafilter is scaling beautifully. well done.

Yeah, when did it hit 2000? Not that that's some magic number, but I'm just curious.

two days later, and 79 more members. Woah! Is that becoming the average? ~40 new members a day? 'grats, Matt, that's an awesome influx of people.

I think a lot of new people would probably be a result of the new 5k site about to go live.

Either way, an impressive number of new joins. There's already amost 40 new ones today alone again.

the stats are through the roof too, check them out.

Wow, that's craziness.

And quite amusing, too. I like the fact that right near the top is a google search for "stupid people" that may say something. :-)

(also, I'm proud to note that 10 people have come to metafilter via my blog [yes, I looked for it :-]. 8 of which were probably me checking to make sure links worked after updating my site, but darn it, I'm creating traffic. :-)

Woo, 673 referrals from my site! I am a MeFi pipeline, baby!

CUJ, keep in mind that the stats are for the past 9 months or so.

oops, 3 months.

Should that stats link still work? It doesn't for me.
posted by gluechunk at 11:35 AM on November 19, 2000

I just looked again gluechunk, and it still works fine.

Hm, I think it's my browser's fault...

When I go to http://work.metafilter.com/metafilter111600.html

I eventually get tossed to http://work.metafilter.com/C:\temp\TSWeb\style.css
