Actually... for the 4th time, yes. ;)  Although, I don't know how much of a crouch it was, as much as a "leaning back in my chair, with my right index finger clicking the "refresh" button with the mouse, and my left index finger hovering over the "Enter" button.

Lying in wait to make a congratulatory post.  Drat that I had to go do something.  Ah well, onward to 500,000   ;)

At the pace we've been going, we'll likely hit the new milestone before we hit the new year!

Glory to God!

This site is incredible, with holy things happening daily.  To be honest, I think many converts (including myself) may not had been able to do it without OC.net.  The work you all do is a blessing to us all!

Congrats to OC.net. This site has been very accomodating to guests and is certainly a wealth of information. I hope to be around the forums when it hits half a million, and even a million posts. :)

For curiosity's sake, I checked out the dates for each of these.

Beginning: October 3rd, 2002

*3 years and a couple of months pass*

100,000 posts: December 31st, 2005

*2 years pass*

200,000 posts: January 15th, 2008

*1 years and a couple of month pass*

300,000 posts: March 19th, 2009

*10 months pass*

400,000 posts

It would seem that there is a trend and that if it continues the 100,000 posts marks are going to keep coming sooner and sooner. Maybe 500,000 will happen as soon as this summer...

Well, the pace has slowed here considerably.  We're still at a 100,000-in-less-than-12-months pace, but not by much.

Well, I should do what I can to help the number rate then.  ;) ;D

I wonder how much that is because I haven't been here much in the past few months.  :laugh:
