For quite some time, I had been meaning to print and bind the archives of
the ShadowTalk mailing list so that I could have a hardcopy story to read
through and share with friends and family.

Welp, much to the annoyance of the staff running the laser printer, I did

First, I divded everything into eight books, each encompassing two months
of logs. I then worked up a nice title page for each and printed it.

Here, for your amusement and annoyance, are some ideas about the amount
of material we have produced (I've included some notes about the major
plotlines I remember happening then. I didn't participate as much in the
middle so I dont' remember exactly what happened there):

November 1, 2053 to December 31, 2053 40 Pages (MagnaTech)
January 1, 2054 to February 28, 2054 178 Pages (MONICA I)
March 1, 2054 to April 30, 2054 438 Pages (Omega Island)
May 1, 2054 to June 30, 2054 206 Pages (MONICA II)
July 1, 2054 to August 31, 2054 284 Pages
September 1, 2054 to October 31, 2054 451 Pages
November 1, 2054 to December 31, 2054 238 Pages
January 1, 2055 to February 28, 2055 297 Pages (MONICA III)
Total 2132 Pages


What does the above show? Well, as you can see, we;ve substantially
increased size in comparing Nov/Dec 2053 with the same period 2054
(increase by almost six times), although I don't think it is a fair
comparisson as we were still getting off hte ground in 2053.

If you look at Jan/Feb 2054 compared to 2055, you will see that we
increased our size by about 66% or so. It will be interesting to see if
this trend continues into the future as well. I would really like to
finish ShadowTalk's second year with at the very least a 50% increase in
material, 100% if possible.

In any case, I just thought you'd all like to see these numbers.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
