Re: 1190: "Time"

Thanks for bumping the clustermap image people. It's keeping it updated. It seems to record visits per view, mind, so if one person sees it in on three pages, that's three views. But it shows the spread of locations nicely. I created it with a "dummy" URL, but since we're #52 top user of t...

I really hope this isn't the end... In the Time that Time has been going, I've come to feel that I know, and am fond of, so many of you. I'm not a prolific poster (only #57 apparently) but I've stuck it out - I never really bothered much with these forums before, just nipping in if I didn't immediat...

We do the same for frame 2 and get another 806 difference frames and so forth till frame 806. So it is 806 x 806 frames. Since subtraction isn't a commutat...
