Gone a bit quiet in 'ere...

Post by UBT - Timbo » Sat Aug 21, 2021 3:25 am

Hi all

With a few members taking a break (or limiting their crunching) and since the team is not playing an active role in Formula BOINC Sprints this year, I'm wondering what should be done, to try and generate a bit of interest in the forum.

Some people might get their "online social kicks" from the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc and others might visit various other websites to read up on the latest news and events from around the world...

But it would be nice to think that the small band of members who *do* frequent this forum regularly, might find something new and interesting whenever they log in, that they like to read and perhaps might like to comment on?

In the past, we've been lucky not to have too many political/religious rants being posted...and since the Covid pandemic became the focus for many in the world, we've not seen any significant posts from any anti-vaxxers either... :-)

So, perhaps, there is a need to share links to websites that are humorous, or thought provoking or of general interest, perhaps with a "scientific slant" that members like and which might be of interest to others?


I'll start this off with a link to websites that are full of links to other humorous websites....

Namely: Top 100 Humor Blogs and Websites

and some more websites with links:
