According to the 'Online' panel ... with the red header, in the left sidebar, There are 447 unregistered users and 8 registered users on-line.

According to the panel .... with the revolting yellow/orange/mustard/sick-dog turd-colour header ... to the right ... and slightly below ... that, In total there are 16 users online :: 1 Registered, 0 Hidden and 15 Guests


So, I'm assuming that the LXF website calculations are based on the principle that 1+1 = 2 except for very small values of 1

---

N.B. Anyone trying to come it with Fuzzy Logic will get beaten to death with a hedge! - An X.Y = 1 hedge!

"In total there are 17 users online :: 1 Registered, 0 Hidden and 16 Guests"

"There are 410 unregistered users and 6 registered users on-line."

This is at "Tue, 21 Apr 2009 13:57:44 GMT+1000" - you've just gotta love servers that generate their own counts. At 2:00pm on a Tuesday in Australia I'd say the first count is correct. Laughing

The former is for general website pages (eg front page, archives); the latter is for the forums.

Don't anybody believe a word of that, my calculator is quite specific ...
And it uses the same algorithms that major CEO's use to explain their remuneration packages too.

447 + 8 is indeed 16.

Specifically quite true but i was just refering to all agricultural produce in general (grin).

One can't be to hard on them though, like --- take QCs ... now there's a motley bunch. Over this way they all seem to be hopeless in business, going by how often they go bank-rupt. And there all subject to 'Quick On Set Alzheimer's' for some reason, as well.
