One year ago there would not have been so many people on line at 02.10 am pacific. I'm sure of that. The forums have expanded and yet many people who were here a year ago are missing. I don't know if they are lurking or gone. I think some leave because they sell huge numbers and no longer feel they need kIndle boards. I think some just give up. Anyway I have to go to sleep so will not be issuing any more opinions on this subject tonight.
