Feb 1998

First of all, let me just say up front... Chad once again romped.

Chad took the lead on the February 1st, and nobody ever came close all month long. And by winning again this month, Chad takes the record for the most consecutive wins (six) and also takes the record for the most months won since the contest started (ten). Chad takes both those records from Rebecca, who had held them until now.

Rebecca did come in a very respectible second this month though. Which led me to notice that Rebecca's email volume has increased substantially since she quit her job and went to grad school. Which then led me to notice that four of the top five this month are in school. Meanwhile in places six to ten there is no one in school currently. (At least not full time.) Hmmm... Coincidence?

There was a big jumble for places three through seven. They kept going back and forth all month. Nothing too horribly exciting though.

Only other interesting note is that we switched Shannon's this month. Shannon Nixon fell off the list, but was replaced by Shannon Duff. So we have once again demonstrated the principle of conservation of Shannons. (Or was that energy?) Duffs were also conserved this month with Jay being replaced by Shannon.

Also Chris Morrow makes the list for the first time since June 1996!! That's a long time! Welcome back Chris!
