Re: The 5,000,000th Post

Now that it is about to happen I'd like to ask the experts about their opinions, fears or hopes on what this number of posts entails.

Is the software geared to handle the new total number of posts or are planes going to fall out of the skies? are nuclear power plants going to 'china-syndrome' on us (more than they usually do)? will our taxes ever be correctly calculated again? will the dead rise and eat our brains?

Re: The 5,000,000th Post

I just want to make sure we know which one it is.

I'm out though, have to go to sleep and the posting is sooooo slow right now. I fully expect there to be a winner when next I log on though!

Re: The 5,000,000th Post

The current post count on my screen: 4,999,319

At this rate - and if my tally is indeed the correct one - it won't be long. Just the other day there were still about 10,000 left to go and now we're down to a few hundred or so.

I think the counter for you guys also counts all TNZ posts.

Re: The 5,000,000th Post

Earlier in the thread we discovered that the discrepancy in total posts is due to there being two counters: one on the bottom of the index page, and one on the top right of every page. I think we decided to go with the number on the top right since that's what most people were referencing. It is the higher number, at 4,999,335 at the moment.

Less than 1,000 to go, which means it will happen while I am asleep.

Re: The 5,000,000th Post

Here's another one to get us a little closer to the milestone. The Trek Quadropalm.

It's a powerful meme. Use it wisely.
