    hmmmm, I guess the math was ok after all. But when you continually reply, the posts continue on the same page past forty posts. Its only when you refresh the page, that it turns to a new page in the browser.

    That's widely out of date and inaccurate! eg it says Shaggy has 'only' posted 2,491 when he's actually posted 34,524 at the time of this post.

    Also, posts in Chit-Chat don't count in your post total. So, those 2,491 are all dross...in case anybody was unclear on that fact.

    Re: Post Race!

    One thing I find interesting is that I feel like the Post Race has been pretty active for a few years. However, I see us on page 1607, and the breadcrumbs allow us to look at various earlier pages. One of the offerings I see is 1107, which would be 500 back, or a bit less than a third of the way back to the start. If I go to that page, the posts were made in 2002. That's about the time I joined the forum. Two thirds of the post race happened in the first few years of the forum. Those folks were weirder than we are.

    Considering how long you've been a member, I'm somewhat dismayed that you didn't recognize the user name.
    It is an unfortunate situation, and a sad reminder for a lot of us, even though I came along long after his time on the forum so don't really have the connection with him that would justify the emotion. But I did know Gruff for quite some time, and his sudden departure was also a sad time, so I guess I empathize with those who knew Parksie and also feel the same for a few others who have moved on over the years.

    Re: Post Race!

    A) You're talking about Parksie, who is in third place. The person in second place is Guest, I believe, a non-person, and quite possibly many different people. I don't think the Guest account (people not registered) can post anymore, though I'm not sure about that.

    B) How did you manage to get a duplicate in Post Race? I never do.

    C) Why did you bother deleting a duplicate in Post Race?

    Re: Post Race!

    A). I see. I guess it wasn't that clear on my screen, or because of the high resolution and the way the rows don't line up for the second/third entries. I saw that 5100 was the second value on the right of the window, and when I looked at the left of the window, Parksie was the second name. "Guest" is apparently invisible, and I didn't note the short space allocated for that row. The question makes more sense now.

    B). It technically wasn't the "regular" duplicate, as far as I know. I'm not sure exactly how I did it, but perhaps navigated backwards and ended up on a page with an earlier version of the post so just edited it to add the second link. But after posting realized that that post was a duplicate, sort of, and while the second post had the additional link, it didn't have some of the other corrections and additions to the paragraph done previously, so it was a duplicate of a previous version of the previous post with modifications.

    C). It was easier to add the second link to the previous post and delete the second post, than add the earlier modifications from the first post to the second.
    Leaving them both, as was, would have been a mixed sequence of events with neither being the fully intended post.
    C p.s.) It was also easier to fix the issue and delete the unintended "duplicate", than to add a third post (which could have been in the spirit of thread), or explain why the two posts ended up the way they would have. I was in a somewhat somber mood, I suppose.

    Yeah, I still remember when Parksie died, and I hadn't interacted with him all that much. It was still sad.

    Is there a different math used in chitchat? Or perhaps a big endian/little endian thing.

    There's certainly a different math used by Bonker, who is also Bonker and also Bonker. I'm not quite sure why there are three of them, or by his math, 30 of them.

    Haven't found it entertaining, mainly just painful. The market at @ 15% loss, hope this correction stops soon or I might have to come out of retirement.

    I felt it was a bit overheated going into this. Not so much, now, though. Now I think there will be a rebound, though not a big one.
