I do find it interesting that the drive for 200k before 2008 has stalled.

But in the end I think it's best for OC.net if the posts leading up to the great milestone be substantive, and not a frenzy of one-word (or two-word) posts or some sort of photo-crazy spree.

Well, it could be the holidays and people being away. (Then again, the latest Alphabet line of cleaning items is difficult.  I'm trying to think of one that starts with a U.)

But there have been some really dedicated posters. Smiley

So Cleveland won their game.

And Pittsburgh is being pummeled.

And it pretty much won't make a difference for who gets into the playoffs.

Fact:

The reason firehouses have circular stairways is from the days when the engines were pulled by horses. The horses were stabled on the ground floor and figured out how to walk up straight staircases.

Not trying to be a pain here, but it occurred to me that *this* might be a good place for the Julian Calender off-set.  That would give us 2 weeks to make it to 200,000 posts by Jan. 1.

Right.  But that would be 3,270 posts in 13 days, which would amount to 251 posts per day.  One would figure that at the pace the forum's been at the last month and a half it would be "in the bag," however we've had a bit of a slowdown in the last week and a half or so.

And it pretty much won't make a difference for who gets into the playoffs. 

I feel bad for 'ya.  I think Pittsburgh is at a disadvantage against Jacksonville.  Don't think they'll make it.  Even if they do, they are certainly not as good as either Indy or New England.

So I'm left rooting for the team I cheered for when the Browns were "no more" - Go Pack!

Going along with your thought - maybe a New Year's resolution for the board can be "have a few 1,000 post days,*" which can certainly help the cause of getting to 200k by Old Calendar New Year.

* By 1,000 posts, I mean substantial posts (even if they're silly) - not one- or two-worders, or photo-only posts, etc.

It's a little bit of both.  It's fun for a few pages and then gets tedious.  After some time some clever person comes and makes it fun again.  Here's your task!  Tongue  Welcome to the boards, by the way.

Well, those of us "in the thick of things" were enjoying ourselves.  But you're right, it can get a bit tedious from time to time.  At 4,168 (now 4,169) posts, the thread's been around a long time.

I've sent a Panettone through the mail and it held up alright.  Though, when they are made too heavy those things could withstand an atomic explosion.   laugh

No, we don't confer the title of 'pestilential annoyance' solely for your work on this thread... Wink

Truly, just kidding. You're not an annoyance, Ebor!

Reminds me of the oatmeal cookie bars we military blokes had in our MREs (meals ready to eat; field rations for the military, which one hunter I knew loved to buy at the military surplus stores) back in the 90's.  We often joked about how we could use the cookie bars to reinforce our fighting holes. laugh

I have it on good authority that it is inadvisable, when traveling during the Christmas holidays to carry home-made fruitcake on ones carry-on luggage.  Apparently in the x-ray machine it's density has a look like some kind of plastic explosive.  (But then what about the nuts and fruit?  Is Semtex or it's ilk likely to be ummm "lumpy?"
