Well apparently we have over 16,000 members, but I just see the same 10-15 regular posters ::)

It used to be a hive of activity, seems almost dead here people.

Makes me kind of sad to see the CRO site so light on active members.

This looks great, I've already made up the base sauce to Darth's spec and will hopefully be able to make the finished curry this weekend.

I think that's a most unfair comment and not even true from an objective standpoint.

There was a relatively small bunch of highly active members back in the mid 2000s, which included us as well as members like markj, curryking, and ghanna, who we haven't heard from for ages, regrettably. There's still a relatively small bunch of highly active members, but many of them are different people. Some folks have dropped out and others have joined. I'd say the activity level is at least as high now, as it was then. More to the point, is any other similar site (forum) doing any better? I really don't think so. It seems to be a characteristic of most forums that they level out with a bunch (20-50) of highly active members, regardless of the number of registered sign-ups.

I made this curry tonight and my lack of faith was disturbing whilst I cooked it. It was very thin and I was sure this was not the Vindaloo I was looking for.

So I added some more oil, turned the burners up and let it reduce on high heat to that nice thick BIR consistency.

The result was a cracking Vindaloo that even a Dark Lord of the Sith would be proud of.

Cheers Darth, I'll be making this again  :)
