I mean look ... when the likes of CruisingDad, Smack, Jonesy et al continue to post when it is quite obvious they are simply blowing it out their butts , when the likes of Jeff_H is allowed to go on posting his interminable monologues that no one can understand and well, that silly Fuzzy fella is tolerated while he strives to find his lost village you could not possibly do any harm.
Which leads naturally to a question tdw:

What are we doing about, er uh, for, your 10,000th post? I am guessing it will come tomorrow sometime?

I'll leave this to the heavyweights . . .

Good point.

10,000 posts. That's ridiculous TD!

10K posts... you really DO prattle on don't you?!

Of course, smack is not that far behind you... which is, of course, "ridiculous"

Re: Fond Fairwell

Maybe there should be a Sailnet "Wall of Shame" for the 10,000th posters...

Man I really do need to get that life don't I ?

Not sure about tomorrow but I guess it will happen in the next week or so. Reality is though I am an imposter on the list of high posters due to the number of my posts that have been in Off Topic especially the various music threads. I reckon to be fair Off Topic should not count.

I really thought Smack would get there before me and while yeah we all know he's a complete blowhard, at least all of his posts are On Topic.

(I just worked it out that this is roughly 30 posts a week. I know that is a lot but its way better than thirty posts a day. )

Did you happen to see the chick, aev?

Heh-heh.
I thought the chick was one of those cardboard cutouts or one of those blow up dolls, way to lifelike. Where do you find these gals? Since large breasts are in short supply in SE Asia, I'd take one of the cardboard cut outs, if you have one to spare?

Ahh.... Something to aspire to.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

*laugh* Yup. I recall something about my ability to talk and knickerless nuns being mentioned at some point... but that could just be vague memories of my bachelor party

Definitely an error (I see jujudoll having no posts at all). I'm guessing the number you saw was 4,294,967,297 - one plus a power of two that has special meaning for us code-crunching computer nerds. Basically, the forum code tried converting a signed "-1" value into an unsigned 32 bit integer. I'm guessing it can be safely ignored
