I know.  I shall commence rationing to drag out the experience.

Henceforth I'll only reply if somebody writes something so compelling that I just can't help myself.  All other posts you may assume is being tacitly responded to thusly:

My I also point out that 9999 is in its way an even more attractive number than 10K?

!!!

11111 beats 9999 on quantity, but is it really more aesthetically pleasing?  It lacks the mystery.  And in scientific data sets, various versions of 9999 (mainly negative) are used to denote "missing data".  It's haunted with the unknown.

Am I supposed to edit THIS post, or the last one I posted?

Got the message. Ready to go.

9999 also has suspense going for it. Like a millipede waiting to drop the last shoe...

True, that. 9999 was one of the few non-thousand posts counts that I screenshotted.

I'll be exactly 5 short of 5555, while at the same time Halfy is 5 short of 9999. :carrot:

Your move, Mr Halfwise.

Imagine if you guys make your milestone posts simultaneously. That would be a helluva commemorative screenshot. Very Happy Nod

Ah, I see Halfy is poised on the brink, with only one post short of 9999. I better catch up!

This IS an interesting idea of simultaneous posting Eldo. What do you think Halfy? Do you want to pick a time and try for it?

Of course even if you'd like to, you can't post directly without crossing the line, but you can edit your last post if you like. I'll check there periodically.

Edit. good point Eldo. PM's work well too Smile
