Congrats indeed. I first joined the site in february 2006, and then forgot all about it for two months. Rejoined with different email address in April that year, and browsing the site immediately got into my daily routines. I had a setup that would open all unread posts in all forums, and I would read each of them every night.. up until about 2008. The site had expanded so much, that it was becoming impossible to keep up with everything on here!
I still use the site daily. I saw the usage statistics some time ago in another thread, and I wonder how many "different visits" from Finland are from ME. I often browse the site from sofa with my phone, then get up and fire up the full browser in computer, and then some time later resume browsing different news sites and NSF from the sofa while watching TV. I'm a lurker by nature... When I post, I try to aim for high quality, instead of useless banter, of which there is surprisingly little on NSF
L2 has been fantastic and it continues to live up to its promise, even after the shuttle has gone. Thanks to Chris and all the sources!
