There was an uptick in traffic during Christmas. I suspect a large gathering of folks who had questions about their iPhone found their way to EIC. The past few weeks are always odd ones when it comes to traffic. I think most people are active here when they are at work, so I'd expect next week to see an uptick. Of course, the week after is MacWorld so we'll have an influx of new members and some vets will make their way back into the fold.
BTW, thanks for all of your work with the spam reporting. Your speed with the reports is amazing and you help keep this place free of spamage.
