Oh, and by the Way -- 1000 Posts.

I realize that's a piddly amount by most message board standards but it's taken me a decade to get this. That's nearly 100 posts a year, folks! Considering how my life just seems to be getting busier and busier I sort of doubt the board will live long enough for any of us to see my 2000th post. I'm not exactly a numerologist, but I do place a far more amount of meaning in numbers than the average person. So this event will be celebrated.

I used to think it was big that numb4er 1000 but ,,, I don't // what is big is that I have never seen any of your 1000 posts guessing that is hard to do - but I don't remember one exceptional Newspaper Taxi posting??,,, it may be that you have changed your avatar name or what not so I just am unsure but beside ... congrats..

Wooue. weee----

Re: Oh, and by the Way -- 1000 Posts.

I've realized lately that I'm not good at being 'part of a community' on a message board. So I don't feel about not being noticed, since most of my messages are to the point on specific subjects. In the beginning I was mostly here for the Enterprise board back when the show was on the air; then I spent along time slumming about TrekLit, before eventually mostly staying in the Doctor Who section.

As to what post is the most essential post -- that's a really intriguing question, one that could probably be it's own topic. I started a topic once about listing terrible ideas for episodes of Star Trek -- to make the most artfully bad episodes ever. It got over a 100 pages in it's day and it made me laugh. One idea I remember coming up with involved pipes appearing through-out the bridge of the Ent-D, and everyone had to figure out why before there would be no room to walk or stand due to pipes. Everyone else's posts were great, too -- the imagination of TrekBBSers can be a mighty thing.

Congrats on making it to 1000 posts (and on having a life ).

At OP's current rate, this would take almost 29 years.

Congratulations. Now that people have gotten a chance to say something, I'm closing this down, because it doesn't have much room for further discussion.
