I have been watching the post count at the bottom of the Discussions page as it slowly climbs toward 100,000. By my calculations it should reach that milestone at about 0300 EST, Thursday April 28th.

What do you say, Grinler? Is there a prize for being the lucky poster? How about a tour of Head Office? Or a Bleeping Computer t-shirt? Or that pen you stole from the gas station? :thumbsup:

Lets put some heat on the Grinler to come up with something!

Anyone else have any suggestions for the big prize?

:thumbsup: Good eye, Leurgy. :inlove:

Now about a prize.

Or that pen you stole from the gas station?


It will be hard to come up with one that will top that. :flowers: :trumpet:

So that's why Leurgy has been making so many posts lately.

He's after that pen! :thumbsup:

Hmm The pen works for me.. or maybe a subscription to TrojanHunter or something??? LOL j/k Ooh I know.. how about a 100,000 Dollar Bar?

I think we will reach 100,000 on Sunday May 1st at about 11pm EDST. :thumbsup:

:flowers: ... and here is one more for the count. LOL

UPDATE

I'm revising my estimate to Midnight EST.

I need a new pen, you wouldn't believe the pages and pages of notes I generate while researching posts here on BC. And I'm afraid to throw any of them away. The general area around my computer should be declared a fire hazard. :thumbsup:

Still waiting for Grinler to weigh in on this one.

Thats no fair, if I was a mod I could have changed that number too. :thumbsup:

Anyway, that post of scarlett's is invalid as 10,000 is 10,000. :flowers: no matter what you say.

Yes Leurgy you are correct but since how she worded there is a loophole she used the word “by” and since she put in 10,000 technically she Wins because it was “by” April 28.

On another Note She shouldn’t be allowed to Win she’s a Mod /nod. Mod’s shouldn’t be allowed to vote just like the pepsi games if you work or are family of someone who works at Pepsi you are unelegable! :thumbsup:
Tag your it!

Ok, I want in on this! By calculating the PPM (posts per minute) divided by 60 min. Then asking my wife what time it is, checking wind speed, and asking my mom :) , I calculate that we'll hit 100,000 sometime between 8:00 and 9:00 EST on April 27th.

SCIENCE!!

We're going to make the merry-go-round go faster, so everyone needs to hang on tighter-just to keep from being thrown to the wolves.

In the mad race to get Grinler's used pen, I suppose we could all just pick a time and start bumping every message on the boards. Maybe if Scarlett wins, we could find a give-away calculator from PeopleSoft as her prize.
Cheers,
