Today a LUG record was broken.

Every day about 20 people join the LUG and about 19 or 20 people leave the 
LUG. The total membership is rather stable at about 1100 (up from 1000 after 
the introduction of the M8).

A typical new subscriber will sign on, listen for a while, decide that the 
LUG is not to his or her liking, and leave quietly. Every now and then one 
of them will tell me why they are leaving. Every now and then, somebody 
decides to stay. Every now and then, one of the people who decides to stay 
gathers the courage to say something.

Today a new subscriber lasted 6 minutes. He subscribed. There was a burst of 
off-topic drivel. He unsubscribed 6 minutes later. New record.

Just wanted you to know.
