    If only it would hit even 1 / 100 of that in regard to users online at once…

  2. Agreed Mircea. Whist I don’t want to ‘diss’ Osgrid, or any other grid for that matter – we all know that registered users is a completely meaningless metric. It bears no relation to the popularity of the grid, or how many people actually log in daily or on a regular basis.

    It is a bit like me saying “I have delivered 100.000 leaflets to residents in my area to advertise my business.” and you respond “cool, so how many people actually responded and brought your product?” My reply “Well, only about 60.” Which is what OSGrid averages per day.

    I also know that one of those registered user accounts is mine – which I no longer use and have not logged into for well over 18 months since setting up my own grid.
