I guess it's better than stacking up posts bitching about other people's post count.

I thought so, but I wasn't all that sure just from looking at the sig. I never did like those black alternate uniforms, anyway, so maybe I was in denial.

He did some good stuff in that uniform, though. If only Rickey could play short or second, the Mets could use him right now...

Nah it aint a problem. One thing I've noticed though is you've posted more than I do -- and people actually like you ... oops!

*grin* it'll be a great day when I reach 10,000. Of course, if I wait for this account to hit that, it'll just take forever

Eh oh well. 2 more years to go

Gorickey was obviously an Applescript... I think the real gorickey would come in and post once or twice a week... but the rest were simply +1 or totally agree

You could write a perl script...

I've seen them on IRC. They are web/IRC perl bots.

You find all the geeks on IRC.

Well you wouldn't want to make it TOO obvious.

Just run a "fanboy" script and have it reply to all my posts.

I think the MacNN post count should be implemented as a signed short int.

Imagine the surprise on Zimphire and gorickey's faces when they think they've got a really high post count, and all of a sudden take a look and see it's -32768!

Ticking sound coming from a .pkg package? Don't let the .bom go off! Inspect it first with Pacifist. Macworld - five mice!

Wasn't bitching. Just made an observation. BTW, that was the first post I have ever made about someone's post count and it wasn't negative.

Why not you post all your "gorickey" sigs from beginning to the lastest one? So we all can see and refresh our memories with your hundreds of sigs.

I'd care less. I hope demon gets rid of post counts.

That way we don't have to deal with the post count nazis.

1.)

2.)

3.)

4.)

5.)

6.)

7.)

8.)

9.) (sorta ironic, eh?)

10.)

11.)

With the extra room in sigs now, a sweet one would be of Rickey sliding into second base, fully extended.

This is a computer-generated message and needs no signature.

Definitely. I think any new sig will revolve around "stealing" now that I'm manofsteal...

Sliding into second behind bars?
