You may or may not have heard of Ravelry www.ravelry.com which is probably something akin to Myspace for the knitting and crochet community. It hasn't officially launched and is still in Beta Testing. They just recently got permanent Production hosting so the two founders are busy with the migration. Many of the Beta Testers have jumped in and used the functions of Ravelry and the screenshots make the rest of the waiting list itch to get in. Unfortunately no one who has not gotten an id on the site can even view pages within it so the hard work shown by the members are only seen by other members. It is not clear if once it goes live if it will be viewable only by members or not.
They added a function to check your standing on the waiting list to make it easier for everyone.
Here is my current standing on the waiting list:
8384 people are ahead of you in line.
5468 people are behind you in line.
*sigh* Can't wait until I can see everyone's cool stuff!
