That's almost twice as many views as the Café has registered members and nearly a third of all views on Penny since its inception. What does that tell you about the number of lurkers we have here?

Hi

I myself was once a lurker here, but finally have taken the plunge and signed up.

I've jusst iontroduced myself properly in the "introduce yourself" section of this forum so
please feel to pop over there and find out a little more about me.

Anyhow it occured to me the high number of views for this thread may not just be lurkers..

I have to ask the question of how does this forum register views?

By that I mean are ISP's logged for each forum topic thread or does it count as a
seperate view each time each of us views it?

Perhaps the apparent high number of views has come about from all involved in this thread
coming back regularly to see who else has commented?

On a seperate note entirely I am very much looking forward to reviews of Colin and Paul's new
book appearing here, I am currently saving up and deliberating what my next magical/mentalism investment should be and this is in my top three considerations.

Its the reviews that shall tip the balance for me and help me make up my mind.

If it's on your menu then you better grab it quick!

Only 200 people will have their hands on this.

Knowing that I will be 1/200 people (plus Paul, Colin, and a few of their close friends) that are IN on this makes me very happy.

Over 2000 views in a 6 hour period in the middle of the night on Sunday? Definitely something odd going on.

Well fingers crossed that there are enough pennys left at the end of the month
and that there is a copy left, although I may try to start convincing my wife to
buy me this as an early anniversary present.

I've already got several of Paul Brooks books and enjoyed Colin's dvds from Alakazam
so feel certain this release will be amazing also.

Bob, are you saying that in the middle of the night people want to see mine and Colin's 'bits'??? Smile

N.B. - Speak to Colin about possible webcam show!

"Night" is relative - the magiccafe is pretty international...

Over 2000 views in a 6 hour period in the middle of the night on Sunday....YES it's possible mr Cassidy!

No conspiracy theory at all. Just numbers that are completely out of synch with reality.

Todd - I think you are right.

In any event, I think you are all going to be pleased with this release.

Good thoughts,

Bob

Anymore words you have for this Mr. Cassidy?

I'm impatient and I want my mommy.

Maybe more time should be sent shipping the paid for product and less time artificially inflating the view count Smile

I am waiting to ship, but the printers still haven't dropped the books on my doorstep yet.

Re: View count - this has happened on other threads about my products before. I cannot say if the inflation is artificial or just interest in the topic. I know for a certainty that it isn't Colin or me. But it is apparent that a few people have tried to take this thread off-topic a few times, possibly to get it locked/moved/deleted? If the viewing count is artificially inflated it wouldn't surprise me if it were a tactic to get this thread locked/deleted.

Anyway, that's just a theory, and I have no proof, and for all I know it could be general interest.

I will post on this thread when the books land and also when I ship them, which will be later that day.

Cheers,

-Paul

Hi Paul,

I think that no one here is interested about the view count so never mind about that. I am sure that this thread has many view just because there is great interest for this book.

We are happy to know that you'll ship the books soon.

Regards

I've just spoken to the printers and they have confirmed that the books have been printed AND that they are en route to me as of about 2 hours ago.

It's looking like I will receive them tomorrow.

Updates to follow!

Yes, excellent news indeed!

can't wait to get it and finally the "obession" to know the secret has been taken place by something else... I could call it "love for the art"

but the obsession is still there Smile

(maybe because sometimes the secret is not the revolutionary thing? quite a few times I had that "AH! what a genius!" regarding some new effect, but most of the time I appreciate the patter, the psychology or the showmanship infused in the effect)
