Since we had the little guessing game for when Peter would hit 6000 posts, how about one for his 10000th post... dates and times people!

(Possible tiebreak... how many of the 10000 posts contain a cringeworthy pun?)

OK taking the analytical approach:

Peter has posted 7311 times so far
With a post per day rating of 12.37

so 10 000 - 7311 = 2 689

2689/12.37 = 217.38 days

which means that Peter will make his 10 000th post on March 5th 2005

Ithankyow

Unfortunately, the figures only tell half the story:

Firstly, the initial post count was quite low, and only really boosted by the introduction of the various tune association thread etc

Secondly, for some time I was hampered by a very slow and intermittent dial-up connection, replaced a few weeks ago by a much faster broad-band link

Thirdly, to throw all the calculations in the melting pot, there's a possiblility that my work situation could change in a few weeks, limiting my on-line time somewhat :oops:

Taking all the above from both WFs calculations and Peters post, I'm gonna go for

4th January 2005. :p

For the benefit of those of us who have nominated a date for Peter to reach 10,000 posts, can you boost Peters total by adding his daily average for the days when tMP was unavailable? :rolleyes: :tongue: :wink:

Getting worried are we? There will be no, and I repeat NO, fiddling of the figures... acts of God (and tight-fisted computer geek types) are simply one of those things...

Notice you haven't dared to set a date yet Mr Lynch, waiting until the last minute? Is there a cut off? No guesses after Peter has reached 9,000?

Are you the lucky person that gets to trawl through all 10,000 posts to count the abundance of cringeworthy puns??
