Yes, it has been five years since I first registered at GeekCulture and it just so happens that this is my 2000th post! [Eek!]

Well that works out at 200 a year or .547 a day.
[Edit]
I know 2000/5 = 400 and so the average is 1.095 a day
[/Edit]

Trouble is that I managed to post over a 1000 in my first year here. Shows you what old age does to you [Razz] [Wink]

It has been 5 long years, with prolonged absences, but I always seems to come back here.
You have always been here in the good and bad times, unfortunately these days mostly bad.

Thanks for being here Nitrozac and Snaggy and thank you for the site.
Thanks to everyone that I have met on the site, though I have yet to meet anyone IRL.

Now back to your original programming.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Erk, that should be 400, I know [Eek!]

Never said I was good at maths

<Quickly goes back and changes the original post so no-one notices>

Average now works out at 1.095 posts a day.

Also, did you take 2000 and 2004 into account as leap years? [Wink]

Did you take into account the earth's rotation has changed (decreased the length of day by 2.68 microseconds) since the earthquake/tsunami in Southern Asia? [Razz]

Valid point! I don't think MySQL supports that (yet).

WooT, go Swiss! [thumbsup]

grats on the big 2k. Glad the 'bug' didn't get ya [Razz] .... Obviously the rumors about GC resetting your account into the negative at 2000 were greatly exagerated [crazy] [Roll Eyes]

<Edit>:

Dear Losh! I missed my 2k post as well... A while ago, by the looks of it *shrug*

My first 1500 were within a year and a half of joining up though [blush]
