This is, according to the counter, post number 3002.

After the long dreary years of very little traffic - so little I had no compunctions about shutting down the original, spambot-overrun NitroForum - it's gratifying to have so much traffic, of such good quality, and on a steadily rising curve.

The good Doctor is responsible for kicking us over the mark, with 24 posts on his first day participating here. Pace yourself, RJ. This ain't no weekend. This ain't no one-shot. This ain't no foolin' around.

James, this forum is technically extremely functional and visually appealing. besides a brief hiccup when my username (which included a space) ceased to function, the NexusForum is the best place in the world, real or cyber, to discuss Heinlein and his works in a serious way. You should be proud to host a web forum on the man that doesn't include posts like "Starship Troopers Proves Heinlein was Fascist"....

But it's twoo! It's twoo! :mrgreen:

That was always the intention. I am more than pleased to see the site usage both increasing and curving ever more strongly towards serious, in-depth, yet fun discussion of Topic A.

Thanks.

Very seldom, only in rare moments of clarity, only after ages of misapprehension, did a few of them, here and there, now and again, begin to have the deeper insight into the world's nature and man's. And no sooner had this precious insight begun to propagate itself, than it would be blotted out by some small or great disaster, by epidemic disease, by the spontaneous disruption of society, by an access of racial imbecility, by a prolonged bombardment of meteorites, or by the mere cowardice and vertigo that dared not look down the precipice of fact."
--Olaf Stapledon

Does this remind anyone of an entry in "The Notebooks of Lazarus Long?"

It's good to find a Heinlein forum with interesting folks again. The old forum I inhabited for years was crashed by the spammers and the owner never heard from again, though the non-forum part of the board still operates.

What wonderful prose. That sort of writing that just rolls sonorously around the eardrum and caresses the cerebellum with its artistry. A classy reminder of an era when people put a premium on words that took thinking to write and thinking to read.
