    What happend on 04-07-05 at 07:05 AM.

    This was just a little before my time, but what was going on? There were 14,989 people logged on to BF at 7 in the morning. Is this like a server glitch that logged everybody on or was something really crazy happening?

    Maybe the thread about the goofy bike locks you could open with an ink pen???? It was big news but don't really remember when it was.

    8 days before my time, so I can only guess.

    I am gonna say it was the result of whimsy and happenstance.

    6 days before I came aboard.

    It was probably everyone trying to get away from me. It didn't work.

    Was that when the al-qaeda hijack of bikeforums.com happened? I think there's some detail on Joe's blog about it

    edit: the hijack was 2002 or earlier - http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=60490

    I know Yahoo search bots use to tear websites a new a-hole. They fixed that bug. That could be the reason for that.

    I bet it was when the U-lock/Bic pen thing broke. I think BF got a bunch of press for it, and probably got linked on the front page of some news site right about then.

    I saw those videos on BF yesterday. I don't know what happened really I was browsing then all of a sudden this different page with bike locks being opened with pens.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    If that's day-month-year (like many Euros write it), then it was July 4, 2005--American independence and 3rd day of the 2005 TdF.

    I would only assume that it was the digg affect. Has anything on this site been featured on digg?

    I don't think so. ONly thing I can think of that may have related BF and Digg is the kryptonite lock scandal.
