Hi, everyone, this is Doug, with this month's traffic report. Once a month, during the first part of the month, I send the report to the entire HUMOR list. Welcome to the month of November, 2001.

Starting this month, I will slowly be changing the Contributions of Humor. I will not always make you work for the Contributions of Humor. I an extracting the jokes from the Digests and storing them on my computer. If I have the joke extracted, I will show it. If I do not have it extracted, the jokes themselves will not be shown, only the link. Follow the link if you want to see what the joke is. For more information on this, see the Contribution of Humor section.

Well, I see Les is back at the top of the Top 25 again. We see the same people all the time. How about some of you new subscribers become posters and get a batch of new blood here.

By this time next month I sould have a common place to put all the Digests. My new host is busy with other things and has not gotten my site completely set up yet. Once it is set up, I will be moving everything to it a bit at a time. The indexes should give good locations for the different type Digests.

  • Bob is one of out more infrequent Contributors, contributing on 11
    times from June thre September 2001. Here is information about him,
    in his own words.

    I don't see myself as a very significant contributor, only sending
    something out very occasionally

    Usually i get my humour from real life situations, but also from
    friends who email me funny stories and various jokes.

    A fairly in-depth-yet-completely-cursory trove of information about
    me can be found on my webpage: home.talkcity.com/karmaway/oxo

    And finally, the one feature which has been featured in all Traffic Reports,
    the contribution of Humor. Since, I am not a real regular contributor, I will
    not be providing new Humor. Instead, I will provide a joke from the archives.
    It will be at least 14 months old, so most of you won't remember it. You will
    either see the joke below or a link to the joke, not the actual joke, although
    I will provide the Subject line (Topic). Since there are now HTML versions of
    all Digests, it will point to the joke itself.
    
    My contribution of Humor from the Archives:
    

    This joke is too long for the Traffic Report. The link will be shown.
