    Haha! Nice one.

    I was a close call between Yes and ;) (obviously it wasn't gonna be No) - but I went for Yes.

    I don't know why anybody thinks I am the least bit interested in my post count? :confused:

    It is the last thing on my mind or that I ever think about - truly!

    I get bored in the day, come along for a break from work and just look at "New posts since last log on" then reply to whatever comes up at the top and takes my interest - this has followed the same pattern for a few years now.

    I don't know where all the sudden interest in me/this has come from - it seems to be everybody else, who has a bizarre fascination with my postcount - it just happens that a few of us - like JimK, Ed Fuqua etc. stumbled on to this place before the rest of you! ;)

    And of those who did get here first, it seems that I am the fastest typist - given that my job involves typing in reams of SQL code on an ancient mainframe system, that means the interface is virtually a test of "typing accuracy" - this is no surprise to me!! :D

    If I really wanted to increase my post count - I wouldn't be going to great lengths to explain myself in complicated arguments - I would be typing loads of stupid, inane one or two word posts at random in all the forums. Whereas any fool can see that I stick to particular types of topics and post a lot in areas that interest me - if I was just trying to increase my post count I could do it much more efficiently than this!!! :rolleyes:

    Maybe - but I'm not trying to increase post count - just filling the time I have where I am waiting for code to run etc or just feel like I need a rest!

    What I was saying was that i could make that twice as much, at least, if I didn't consider what I said and just put random meaningless words all over the place - so like :

    Yeah man !
    That's "nice"!
    Cool-looking bass, dude!

    etc etc

    Where's the carrots? There should have been a Make Bruce eat carrots option! 11,000 plus posts and they've all been long winded???
  16. Why don't we make him eat a carrot for every post he posts? That'd really slow him down.
