If this Texas thing snow balls, I may need to fly. Austin sounds good.

Is Medium Tex in Houston?

Is it true in Texas that miles/distance is not a consideration?

Sorry to have not mentioned Tyler. And mukramesh, you and I joined the forum within days of each other. Great minds....

Can somebody pick me up at the airport?
Has there even been a poll done here as to state or country location of active members?

If not and there is a desire to do one now, the easiest way to compile would be to follow something like this...

Massachusetts - 1 (with the next person from my state putting a 2 at the end)

Anything outside of the United States could just do their country like...

England - 1

I'm coming all the way from Vancouver, Canada, so pretty much anywhere in the states will be a trek for me.

I don't suppose you guys would want to meet in Seattle would you? O0

EDIT: Really though, I am down to make an effort to meet just about anywhere! It would be great if we could organize some speakers and stuff. I wonder if Terry Coxon would be interested...

Don't ask me how I know, but unless he's moved, I would guess Collins County, so closer to Dallas-Ft Worth than Houston.
I'll let him speak for himself for anything more specific because, you know, privacy.

If it can coincide with West Virginia in town to play the Longhorns (which I think will happen next season) then we might be able to convince Mountaineer to join too. :-)
High IQ play there, Xan.
There's this very disturbing set of studies where about half the articles printed in Science and Nature magazines, the two leading publications, involved experiments that could not be repeated by anybody.

There were 1,286 users on the site 11/27.

Are we are now popular? Have we arrived?

I believe portfoliocharts.com has a huge following. Tyler’s site is referenced on bogleheads.

What’s our status?

We inch closer to 1,000 members. The price of gold may/may not influence the outcome.

I think a stock market meltdown would also 'influence the outcome'.

This forum is for unusual thinkers. People who approach investing and life in a different way from the norm. I'm perfectly fine with a small cadre of friends here.

998. Two more for 1,000.

This forum took 7 and 1/4 years to get 600 members. Another 400 in only 2.5 years!

An indication of popularity or utility?

May pick up another 400 in 6 months, if things roll along well.

More internet access and more old people. It's a portfolio for retirees, those panicking during a crash, and goldbugs
