While we were out...

...we passed our one month anniversary of blogging! Hooray for us! Checking our statistic counters, we've gotten almost 1,000 visits and nearly 3,000 page views. We're averaging over 60 visits a day and reader participation is really starting to look up. Granted, some of those visits are probably duplicates of people checking in twice or thrice for updates, but we don't mind. If they tell one or two friends about us, it all adds up. With over 10,000 people on the job, we have the potential of reaching a very large and diverse audience. If this blog had been up during the union elections or during contract negotiations, traffic could have easily tripled or quadrupled get the idea.

It's all about participating, so please, tell your friends about us. As stated below, if we get enough comments on certain subjects, we'll give it it's own thread. If you have a hot story or rumor that might impact the guys and girls or the job they do, post it or e-mail it to the contact address in the "view my complete profile" button at the top right of the page.

You heard it here first (or second if you are as wired in as we are). Captains will be named on 18 July. There are currently 11 openings. This also happens to be the day that the LT merit nominations are due, so we'll have a better feel for how big the LTs class is going to be. Current estimates are 50-60 LT's by end of August.

We are posting this in the open thread area so as to leave the Union Jack at the top of the blog for the day.

More "merit" captains. Great.I think there are only three "real" captains left on the job from the days they actually used test scores.

Well done sight - blogmaster to be complimented. Also, all the current posters, while not necessarily agreeing with one another have not engaged in personal and/or racist attacks instead of commenting on the issues at hand. Compliments to all.
