I found myself getting very backward looking tonight. So I started digging through some of the data on Hexday.
Hexday was started on November 6th 2007.
That day we had 3 posts:
- JP (me) picked a fairly flat green
- Tom picked white
- Jim and Chompski both picked black
- JP – 232
- Tom – 120
- Cryptoskunks – 85
- SykesUK – 45
- Eric – 43
- Pabranch – 39
- JerseyCat40 – 33
- David – 32
- Jim – 23
- RickD – 22
