I notice at the bottom of the CAP Talk home page that total posts to the board are 197,693. I wonder when it will go over 200,000 and who the lucky poster will be? Will bells sound and whistles blow? Is there a prize?

Sorry, but I am a numbers guy. These things intrigue me.

Quite true.

Based on historical average daily post information, the 200,000th post should be sometime on 31 Jul 10.

NOW who has too much time on his hands? (But I like the statistics)

It would be cool if the 200,000th post was made to this thread.

I'm a numbers guy, too. Didn't take me very long at all.

Eclipse has made over twice as many posts as the #3 member, MIKE, who is a Mod.

I noticed that, too. I also noticed that Eclipse has more "on-line" time than MIKE, the Mod.

Well, I'm right up there with 75+ days, and he's got over 100 days. 5+ posts/day, vs. about 2/day for me.

Probably attributed to having it open in a tab behind other sites most of the day.

As to the high post count - I don't do Facebook, Twitter, or any of that other Social Media nonsense, so this is the only place I'm "contributing" (note the quotes).  A little on CS, too, but its mostly the same conversations with the same people.  My job is based around computers, mostly remote, so I'm tethered nearly 24x7 with no one looking over my shoulder.

Oooooh!  A new Woot!

Actually, your post was number 200102.  The other posts have been deleted or hidden from you for one reason or another (spam, moderator area, archives, etc).

We're having a birthday party for my daughter this afternoon.  Can you get here by 3pm EDT?

If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it, does it make a noise?

If a milestone is invisible and is passed, is it still a milestone?  I say we drive on with the party at the end of the month!!!!
