    At last check, the current post counter was @ [post=984544]984544[/post]. That's not to say that there are that many posts as ~30,000 posts have gone missing and are not showing up on the front page of DBSTalk.com. Either way, I wonder who is going to be that magic post #[post=1000000]1000000[/post].

    You're probably right. It might happen while I'm on vacation. There's a good bet that it won't be me.

    Actually my quick, fun quip hides the fact there is someone posting faster than Earl (who cheats with lots of copying of posts each CE [just another fun joke!]). Veryoldschool is posting at a monster rate also, and may someday actually catch up to the Earl.

    Then there are many other wonderful members here who are doing a great job helping out others all the time.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I hit Earl rates a couple of days back, but I'm exhausted now :) I'm back to not too insane levels again.

    How will we know who it is? Will it be like the one millionth shopper and the confetti falls from the ceiling?

    Ah, but we're running @ ~1,000 posts per day as a group. That would be roughly 2 weeks from today.

    Post 976916 was made about a week before your post 984544 this morning. Yep, about 1000 per day ... but weeks vary. Looking at it again, two weeks from today would be a decent guess. Perhaps that should be the goal ... to guess when post 1000000 would be made?

    It will probably be a month until the home page counter reads 1000000. :)

    I just got a new shredder and could supply a fair amount of confetti if needed. :D

    I'm gonna predict that we hit the mark on Tuesday July 10th, probably before noon (PDT).

    It appears it won't be long until Post 1000000
