Apparently the demographics for New Zealand (kiwi that I am) is that <20 tend to stick to Bebo, and 20+s are on Facebook. Don't know about other countries but Facebook is quite good for getting ...

thanks for that. I was hoping I could sneak inot the top 100 by dusting when there was less than 100 people, but there were about 200 people faster off the rank than me. I am happy to stay around the 1% mark, even if 23000 of the other people have stopped trying.

suggestions

long time lurker, first time poster. A couple of suggestions. I would rather know the "figure of merit" value (the specificity for x sensitivity against or which ever it is) for a possible track than the "for/against" count. I guess the total count is useful too, especially if th...

drop in numbers

I was just wondering how many dusters were still here. I not a prolific duster (only access at work, chemistry to do, that sort of thing) and I seem to have a suspiciously high rank. And the things I have clicked on have only been seen by a small number of people (typically less than 10). Are there ...

This is my favourite. http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/myevents_viewer.php?id=281240V1 I'm guessing it is too big for what we are suppost to be really looking for (weird though that 5 microns is too big) might be the angle too. I was amazed to see that about 80 people didn't click it though. M...
