I was also thinking that, If you BOL crew have some numbers please post them, it would also be interesting to know how many people use rss feeds and how many download it manually, and we also know how big is Buzz Town... just wondering...

she is not that diplomatic...
we all know she hates math! so she hates numbers, and prefers to express herself with words...

ask her "how much is 2412 plus 2382", and she will say: "almost 5000!"
and she is right, because i have learned in physics that everything should be represented with just some numbers, and the order of magnitude...

and by the way, i am that guy Alexandre from Brazil

I know exactly how many people listen. But we prefer to not give those numbers out. Man, but that would make me lame? Tough crowd! Wink

man, now i want to know the number even more :-p

The only sense i can make out of this is that the number is too small and u guys don't want nobody to know.

If you guys can come with other explanations please enlighten the rest.

Almost all other forums have a good portion of complete idiots, who enjoy nothing better than making trouble. Buzztown however has none at all and it makes it really enjoyable to be able to talk to real people, like you who aren't going to act the *****.

Those stats are proprietary intelligence

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
