So why'd you stop at 10,000? I remember explaining to some girl in some computer class in highschool 3 years ago that I had 230 posts and that merely a week prior I had only 200. She was not amazed. Figures. I guess I've been a stats man my whole life...

Uptime [uptimes.hostingwired.com]
Team MacNN folding [teamstats.macnn.com]
Upward Bound Association of California State University, Chico webserver stats [csucub.csuchico.edu]

Numbers! I hope I don't end up like that guy in the movie "Pi" with a drill in my head...

Anyways, gorickey!

I had always mentioned stopping at 10,000 actually from time to time...and/or having the "gorickey" post count set back to 0 once I hit the 10k mark...I figured a "re-branding" would accomplish both tasks...

I just had a very funny (but somewhat mean) idea. I remember a while back there was some changes made with the board and my post count dropped (I noticed because I was over 1000 but then dropped below). Wouldn't it be funny if the same thing happened again, and gorickey no longer had 10,000 posts? It would be a lot like the "Mr. 3000" movie coming out and gorickey would have to come out of retirement to get his 3 posts.

Christopher Reeve I think...I dunno, they said something about the "man of steel" so I'm guessing it's him.

I must admit though, I sit here refreshing constantly when I have nothing to do, because I am partly addicted too.
