No sh*it. Mebbe if you were retired and had nothing better to do you could do the expanded form. Otherwise go find a planet. Actually I don't know your physics specialty. Better yet, just enjoy a beautiful Sunday.

Ferret and his climbing partner are riding up Mines Road to the Junction for lunch. I think that's over in your neck of the woods. Me, I opted for an easy trail ride.

the Taco counter increments, on average, about 800 posts a day...

however, the deviation from that can be significant... (on the order of +/- 400 posts per day)
I'm pretty confident that it will happen between midnight (PDT) tonight and midnight tomorrow night... so if you go surfing you're not going to miss it

The "Total Messagss Posted" number reflects the number of posts currently in the system, while the Message ID number lists the actual total number of posts since the forum went live.

The 123,000 missing posts include at least 25,000 from Crowley alone, knott to mention the work (spanning more than a decade) of a certain thread and post-deleting troll. Then you have entire threads that were deleted by admin (some with high post counts), such as the original boob thread (RIP).

On Sept 22, 2012...Dr Hartouni predicted the two millionth post would occur on April 23.

http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=1935803&msg=1936053#msg1936053




Considering the variables...i.e. good weather heartening people to leave their computers, national events affecting posting activity, new members arriving and established members leaving, etc....

Is anyone else incredulous that Dr. Ed fortold the moment, within a day...SEVEN MONTHS IN ADVANCE ??!!

Just a note. If you were close, you could manipulate the final count by deleting posts. I had a ball with that snagging the 1,000 th post on the Friday Drunk thread.

We were damn close to The Big One being either "bump" or gibberish.

It's been a long winter for some people. God bless them. Bump and gibberish is the best some can do.

I was hoping to snipe my way to no. 2,000,000, but my computer went on strike. Congratulations to Ed for so close a prediction, and to Prod for excellent timing. And thank you to everyone for making this campfire so delightful.

hey there say, all...


ahhh, i missed the fun, :(
i been having to log off early, as i got lots of
things i been painting, lately, :))


well, i reckon i just painted a picture of what i do with my evening time,
now, :))

but not always, this goes in groups, sometimes i have a lot and
and sometimes i have only two, to work on...


so at learst i still get to read, many times...
just hard to always answer, due to the dial up, as usual...

say, ed, as to this quote:

I can't resist posting on this thread to tell the truth.

I posted it as I am the only poster on the forum, the rest of you have stolen my identity.
