Well I hit 200 posts today. Since I registered in September of 2K, this means that if Tau Zero stops posting today, I'll catch up to his post count in April 2009. How long til you catch Tau if he stops posting now?

Well, I started posting more than a year ago, but I stopped posting regularly about 6 months ago, and am slowly starting back up. I doubt I'll ever post as much as I once did. Someone calculate that for me, I'm no math geek.

My guess was that you hit 44 posts, but I suppose you would've said 0x2C if you meant that.

Well, since I just barely started poasting a few months ago (has it been that long?! ), Apple might even make an LCD iMac before I reach Tau Zero! Until then, I'll be keepin' my eye out for the "consumer portable MP3 player," the $38.26 iPod LC.

Tau has only one month's advance on me, so now let me see:
Tau averages around 62 posts a month.
I average around 50 posts a month.

He has around 300 posts on me, so 6 months to catch up, easy.

On the other had, I do not see Tau stopping posting

If I keep having 3-month hiatuses in my life like I did August-November, you'll catch up next year.  OTOH, look at the bright side; you've surpassed Saintonge.

I would stop one shy and then start over with a new name. I have no wish to be #1, for then I would have no one left to pass up. I enjoy being the hunter, not the hunted. The chase is far more exciting than the conclusion......Z

I could never compute the time to catch up. My posting rate depends on how much work I am trying to avoid. That's unpredictable. I'm just happy to be assimilated

Besides, if I wanted to catch up, I could write a post bot.

Well I too had a long hiatus (twice actually), June-August last year and March-June this year. Wait a minute, this means that without those I would have been in the lead Arrgh!

How many does Sainty have for the moment?
