I just checked out www.ravelry.com (http://www.ravelry.com). Looks interesting. Anyone beta testing it? I can't wait to see what it's like. Looks great.

:noway: Yeah.. lots of us have gotten in. If you sign up now you will thousands in front of you on the waiting list, but they say they will soon open to everyone. Of course they've been saying that for awhile, but.. :teehee:

What's the wait? It should be database run so even if the site isn't ready to go, the db should take care of membership right away. Sheeeeeeeesh!

They were absolutely overwhelmed, Lu. They expected a few thousand would be interested and instead they've something like, I don't know.. 19 or 20 thousand? They probably have had to do all kinds of background stuff to make sure the site won't crash when they finally open the doors. If you check daily you'll see they are letting in quite a few a day. I kept track on piece of paper next to the computer. :teehee:

I just checked and the number of people signed up is about 31,500. Growing by leaps and bounds each day too. I think about 400 more people signed up since Labor Day.

I am 24094, still have 12,500 people in front of me after a month of waiting. Oh well.
