Final words, last gasp, parting shots, going down for
the count...

Assuming I've counted correctly, according to the
archives at
during the month of June:

* 183 messages were posted by 38 individuals.

* 4 of the 38 individuals were the panelists, so that
leaves 34 members of empyre who posted during the

* If I've counted right I've posted 72 messages to the
list during June. 28 of these posts were drawings (no
drawings posted June 11 & 12). That means I made 44
written posts.

* The other 3 panelists posted a combined 23 messages.

* That means the 4 guests posted a total of 95
messages, over half of all 183 messages during June.

* Who posted the other 88 messages?
15 members of empyre posted 1 message.
8 members of empyre posted 2 messages.
3 members of empyre posted 3 messages.
4 members of empyre posted 4 messages.
1 members of empyre posted 6 messages.
3 members of empyre posted 9 messages.

I won't count that again to make sure it's absolutely
correct- it's at least close, and you get the idea.

I have no idea how representative this is of other
months.  What quick conclusions might be drawn from
* A very small hardcore participates.  
* A very small hardcore responds to the topic, and
that could change from month to month.
* Participation is spotty among the greater
membership; many members aren't really part of the
conversation during the month.
*Draw your own conclusions.

And now the most important fact- I posted the most, so
I win.  Now, what's my prize?  That's why I signed up
for this thing, anyway.

Finally, here are the titles I culled from emails to
which I responded to make an HTML drawing.  The two
called "Untitled" don't have another title because
there wasn't a post that day or I didn't feel like
digging back into previous days.  It's a reflection of
the activity.  There are only 28 drawings because I
was out of town two days (BTW, I write this from
Ithaca, NY, where I have been since Monday; I fly home
tomorrow).  When I look these titles over they seem to
capture something for me about this month's
experience.  The month's drawings are at
