Yeah... I think about this from time to time. I havn't been here as long as some people (node 9135 is my home) but I do remember posting things in the chatterbox like, "Wow 17 people are logged in" and having a short (3 min) conversation about that and then the box would fall silent again. Now the Monastery only gets below 17 users around dinner time and again around 3 am.
Here's another one: Remember when home nodes just had names on them. No buttons, no pictures, no poetry? Now look at them... poker games, random node buttons, chromatic feeders, and evil logouts.
