This may seem silly, but I still remember when minivend-users and 
interchange-users merged around 4.6.0 and list activity picked up to around 
30 mails a day, and never dropped back down.  It seemed like a flood of 
newbies came to the list every time there was a freshmeat announcement or a 
mention in the news.  It's nice.

I'm sure people still remember when that first slackware cd-roms started 
shipping and all the newbiews flooded linux-kernel and linux-newbies (when 
vger was on rutgers.edu).  Sunday is my day to wax this and wane 
that.  (Sorry for the torture).
