    Default Vernometer - I Love It

    Just thought I would post a quick public thank you to John, Brad and the gang for implementing my suggestion of a statistic tracker and both happy and a little humbled for it to have been named after me.

    Off to have a little play!

    Very nice, indeed.

    I'll be thinking in terms of "How many Verns does my Vernometer inidicate?" every time I refer to it!!

    Well, at least its not a point system where users are punished for what developers/server operators determine are insufficient work hours.
    I'd be written up every week no matter how many excuses my mother writes or my letter of dedication.

    I'm disappointed that it is referred to as the Vern-o-Meter.
    In my mind I think of it being pronounced "Ver-nometer"......similar to "thermometer".
