Cowboys and Cowgirls, BetterMost is fast approaching 100,000 posts!  8)

Post the time that you think we'll hit the mark.  If you are the closest without going over, you win a virtual date with Heath or Jake!  ;D

Deadline is high noon on Wednesday, October 25.


My bet is October 25 at 10:52 p.m. EDT  8)


EDIT:  It is now past the original deadline, but anyone who wants to venture a guess can still post to this thread for Honorable Mention status!  :)

As of right now, we are just over 500 posts away.    The stats page says that we average 403 posts per day.   

  So I figure we should hit 100,000 by  10AM EST on Thursday.

I'm going with today, October 25, at 6:47 p.m. CST, which makes it 7:47 EST.

David:  Forget about the average.  Milestones generate momentum, so it will be sooner rather than later.  (But what do I know.)  :)

I'm still holding onto the 26th as being the day - however, I'm bringing up the time (This DVD release is changing the complexion of things) to 12:30 am (Eastern DS Time) tomorrow (are we currently in standard or daylight saving time? - I think the latter)

We'll see ...

A million, Jenny?  What's the matter with you?  There's a hunderd thousand of 'em.  ;)


This competition is still open, even though we're past the deadline.  The first 11 posters are eligible to win the Grand Prize, but everyone else is eligible for Honorable Mention, which is a virtual case of Old Rose.   8)

Sorry folks, but I emptied the Recycle Bin and had to zap a problem thread that corrupted the database, so we're at 99,760.  Let's see it reach 100,000 through normal forum activity.  It will probably cross that threshold sometime later today, probably in the late morning or early afternoon.

Thanks for keeping a watch though, as I have jury duty tomorrow and probably won't be online to see it.

I was posting so fast the the system responded as if it were spam - here's Phillip's note

"Your thread with the one word replies coming in very rapid order caused a forum software problem writing to the database.  The forum presumes such rapid fire replies are "spam" and it throws an alert.  Unfortunately, the alert also corrupted the thread, so I've had to delete it.  Let's let the post count rise in normal order."

So much for my little fun - caused a gread deal of problems - guess I should apologize

Sorry

but it was fun (I think)

If I wait until it reaches 99,999 and then post my prediction, would I still get the honorable mention.

Or is that considered cheating?

It's cheating isn't it?

I still might do it though.  :D

Here's an update at 10:44 (99,953 posts):

Still in contention of the original 11 posters who met the deadline:

DavidinHartford guessed 10:00 am 

keldashelton guessed 1:07 pm (if I've calculated right!  She said 7:07 pm her time and said it was GMT +1).

jpwagoneer guessed 8:11 pm

With 47 posts to go:

If we reach 100,000 before 1:07 pm EDT, David is the winner.  If not, it looks like Kelda will take it.  8)

Darn it. Bad bet on my side! 
Anyways, shouldn't we get ready and kill us a nice elk for the 100.000 posts celebration?  ;D

My guess for Honorable Mention status:

Thu, Oct. 26 at 11:13 am EDT.


I did guess Thu, Oct. 26 at 11:13 am EDT for honorable mentioned status yesterday.  So if you all keep up the good work, I may be very close.  ;D

I will be on my way to work at the time that we reach 100,000 posts.  A big advanced Yeehaw from me!

Anke, I already have my 30.30 handy  ;D But since elk is more than rare in my garden, I guess we'll have to settle for beans and whiskey.

40 posts to go. 39 after I submitted this one.

Still in contention for Honorable Mention:

newyearsday (10:03 am)
JennyC (11:13 am)

If there are 33 posts before 11:13 am, newyearsday takes it.  If not, looks like JennyC is the one.  Our Jennys are real thinkers there!  8)

How appropriate!  But maybe there's a Siesta Motel somewhere in the South Pacific--that private jet should get a workout (just like you two)!  ;D

High Priestess Meryl,

Congratulations!  As my offering to you on this occasion, I'm awarding you a fly button off of JACK'S PANTS (your choice which button) and of course, any chance glimpses through the new gap in the fly. (Exciting prospect, considering those recent 'commando' pictures of Jake on our 'Jake, Jake, Jake' thread  :o )



 If you should decline to accept this award, I'm guessing that DavidinHartford would accept it on your behalf.  That is, if he can find JAKE/JACK'S PANTS after they've been flung to a far corner of the Siesta Motel room somewhere in the South Pacific!

Affectionately,

Melinda/PANTS  ;D




P.S. Yes, you may use your teeth to gnaw through the thread for button removal while he's wearing them, if you'd like...    ::)

Melinda, I'm overcome by your award, coming as it does from the extraordinarily gifted and expressive Voice of JACK'S PANTS herself!  You are too generous!  :-*  David needn't trouble himself, as I'm only too happy to accept!  :P

*Ahem*  I'll have the lowest button, please.  ;)

David, just let me know when Jack puts The Pants back on again so I can claim my award.  Not to worry, I'll be patient.  *Starts honing chewing technique*
