Well, that was a surprise. A tagline up top of the screen just told me I'd posted 1K times.

Perhaps 10k isn't such a good thing.

Ya Know, something that the "Special" (I.e mods, senior team, benevolent dictators, et al).people don't get are the earned post count titles The coveted one is I think the one I have only seen once, with @avkid.

Let me review the title system and see what we can come up with.

Let me review the title system and see what we can come up with.

Way back when... in the early days, at one point Dave was to be going away for a weekend (in realistically him or someone else managing every hour the website or it could be taken over and often it was.) Dave asked for 50x posts on the forum while he was away - that was a lot of posts back than, (others of us managed it while away and it was simpler to do such things). So I did it as per a joke - 50x posts I believe in quotes from the Backstage Handbook in postings/advice just for post in activity per his request. Them were also the dramatic debate early days. Perhaps on a site anniversary some of the really old debates can be pulled up for more modern discussion or just seeing how low tech the site was at it’s beginnings. Even debated heatedly drill bits at one point as I remember.
The 1K in posts for me was back when I wasn’t as busy with life... done at work for the day, went home and either checked in - AOL I think I had in connection, or sit with a lamp catalogue and manually type in lamp data the rest of the night as useful for work in a big table I was constructing those early years. I mostly typed in lamp data and need to do more to update more my tables. Both were in the end useful after work efforts, though my lamp tables I still use, and CB I less contribute/look at. I have a child now that only wants Daddy especially for bed, work is busier in working late or bringing homework home and I have home projects to do like furniture to make so the baby can step up to the sink in washing her hands. I’m a designer and carpenter beyond electrician... I can design and build a baby lift able step stool that will also store her bath tub toys. There is also much more qualified people than me as expert these days on the forum posting well over the grade of expert I was in the early days on the more useful subjects.
1K in posts was news to me and a non important thing back when. People like gafftaper have on the other hand been around since high school and have been the vibrancy of the website, learning but also telling their own and teaching. Great stuff and alive this teaching others you do. Thanks from all of us in keeping the site vibrant. 10K.. Well done in communiscating as we used to call it in the military.

I appreciate the compliment but have to admit I just attended my 25th class reunion... so I'm less vibrant than you may think.

Never could get into the reunion thing. Maybe it is less important with the internet being able to keep us from completely losing our friends in obscurity. But, no matter, congrats on keeping us entertained in your very many posts.

I went to the 10th and 25th, but not the 20th. I may not go again. I found that the jocks and popular people are still the same and still annoying... although they are all a lot fatter now. Which was entertaining.

Seems a bit... extreme, you know? I mean, I can stop any time I want, I swear!

What a great birthday present to myself. My first kilo post after only 4 1/2 years. It feels like my posting has slowed over the past year or so. Typically someone posts quicker than me on topics that I have knowledge or interest in.

Thanks to all of the folks I have met through this forum. Particularly DvsDave, Gafftaper, and Derekleffew. It's been fun being part of this site and I look forward to being a part of it for years to come

Happy Birthday John. The best part of CB is definitely the friendships you make with people all over the world that you would never meet otherwise.

OK, time to do the math, with this post I need 101 posts, which is a magic number for me because it is a reference to the 101 Ranch, which was showbiz and it was based near here.

Are you really counting? Was a surprise to me in getting to 1K. Like your icon and love and agree with your analog guy tag - but getting kicking and screaming into the DMX world as with the whole LED thing... still have others to do DMX code for me even.. But just as with a quote from "Carol burnett" I'm watching a re-run tonight on TV, of "Jerry Jery...." does it matter that much or something like that in missing exact but appropriate quote. (Just finished rocking the baby to bed and missed all but the the end of the show.)

Post 100 left in telling us about the 101 Ranch. Don't believe I have ever heard of that before and am interested in a reply at least. While Perry Mason is on or in switching to 'Combat before bed.

Oh, by the way @ship I have to tell you about my favorite Carol Burnett moment. It was her last appearance on the Gary Moore show and they had rehearsed one skit, but Gary Moore and Durwood Kirby had secretly rehearsed another skit, the audience was let in on the secret and the outcome was great when the skit went off the rails and CB covered wonderfully. Momentary panic followed by great mad adlibs. They eventually replaced CB with Dorothy Loudon and gave her a trial by fire, they gave here a solo segment, about 8 minutes as I recall and told her to fill it and be funny. She also succeeded.
