Do you like to watch when your cars odometer turns over from many 9's to 0's

Me to. Hopefully I have timed this right and hit post number 800,000! (Actually 790,000 since it seems that 10,000 is the first post back in 1998).

    1. Cool, thanks for noticing!

      And I have to admit, that when my odometer was about to roll over to 100,000km, I was also about to lend it to a friend. And I was so very, very disappointed at the thought that someone else was going to be driving while it rolled over, that I ended up making a completely unnecessary 60km round trip on the highway, just so that it would roll over before she picked it up the next day.

      1. Very cool (and clever to have timed it perfectly). Bravo!

        1. Nicely done, WarmBeer! I barely notice the topic counts. It's only up there on the http line right?

            Also will show up in the status bar at the bottom of the window if you roll over a post on a list of posts, like from the main page of one of the boards. You can play stumble within the discussion area by just changing that number in the URL line and hitting return.
