So according to the stats, the record number of users online for this board was 301 on the morning of October 10, 2013.

What the heck was going on? I figured there would be something significant, but I can't find anything.

Ford, you need to get out more. Wikipedia is not all-knowing. Oct. 10, 2013, was the day before the Mater Dei-Servite game at Angel Stadium, so there was probably trash talk out the wazoo on this board. It was also the day after Bruce Jenner announced he was separating from his wife. Come on, man, pull your head out.

Probably also a day that we had a fairly massive attack of some kind. I wouldn't expect much more than 100 at any one time for the biggest of big games. It's counted in a 15 minute period, so even one person spoofing different IP numbers could have accounted for a lot of it.

I checked this tonight after the MD-Bosco game. The peak, that I caught, said 70 users (including 10 members and 9 bots). Yeah, 301 was an attack of some kind.

This. Bot. That doesn't identify itself as a bot. 12,529 hits yesterday and a new record of 695 "users".

My server report says 9,658 "distinct hosts" yesterday. I'd quit my "job" if those were humans.

Also 594 "500" server errors. Hopefully those weren't human.

LOL. I just noticed our new record is 1,110. At midnight, no less! \:D/ Probably what caused the 500's.

Whoops! I misspoke. 1229 right now. And the server's holding up.

Wondering if I shouldn't block 114.*, though.
