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 April, 2006.

One of our contributors got caught in the digest posting time problem. I have corrected it in the Top 15 list. I have mentioned this before, but it is worth mentioning again.

The Top 15 counts are based upon how many days the contributor has postings in the digest, NOT how many times they post. When I was counting postings per month, I occasionally got more postings than there were days in a month. The server will not allow you to post more than once a day, but it will allow 2 postings in a digest. I was therefore forced to go to counting how many digests the contributor was in.

If you want to post in a particular digest, post between 3:00 AM and 12:00 midnight of that day. If you follow this rule, you are ensured that it will end up in the digest for that date. Both times of course, are Eastern time zone.

Our number of jokes are down this month. This is a little unusual, because we are up a contributor from last month. Contributors, let's try to up that next month.

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.
