Damned if I remember. I left my journals in Canada, and they were never that precise to begin with.

The 2006 Winter Olympics opened in Turin, Italy, with the opening ceremony at the Stadio Olimpico.

Nothing, apparently, but a bunch of us were a here to not talk about it.

A very teeny amount of googling came up with this:
10th February, 1996 : The IRA plants a bomb that explodes in the Docklands area of London, One man is found dead and another person has been reported missing. The bombing marks the end of a 17-month IRA ceasefire during which Irish, British and American leaders worked for a political solution to the troubles in Northern Ireland.

Actually, I get why he asked. That time and date are listed as the pinnacle of board attendance.

But not a lot of posts made, and not a lot occurring at that particular time. At least, not in my memory...

check for "current" celebration or drama (or rather, event that may have preceeded the peak by a few days to a week) .
the archive might offer some clue.
or not.

Actually, it could also have been a spambot spike. We did grapple with those for a while.

the membership enrollment doesn't show that, if i'm looking at this correctly.
