I didn’t post right away when I did my guesstimating on Sunday, but I'll resist the urge to change my number. My guess: 1337

Maybe I should have gone higher, considering that there have since been whispers of loser rewards... 8-)

Playing for "penalties"? :shock:

I seem to recall a cartoon... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvm45cWLRZM :help:

Oh well, as Al Bundy used to say, "If you're going to lose, lose BIG!"

1450


Cheers,
Chris

My strategy will be to add 200 to the year count on the last day of October. ( or probably 202 in case a project or two get catalogued after I log out for the day! ) 13:06

Currently:
October 2020 - 104
All of 2020 - 1093

I am not sure you can use that specific number until you have at least that many forum posts. You still have a few to go :)

LOL! I had no idea that was a special number. Perhaps in that case your rule for sure applies! :lol:

I'm not giving current stats, so as to not make earlier guessers' guesses obsolete. (No fair giving later guessers more information!) ;)

You know we're making good progress when our yearly estimates look like the timeline of the Mongol Empire...

Yeah, I guess we can. I hadn't thought about it. :lol:

Either way, they're locked in on October 31st!

I once won a trophy at a golf tournament for shortest drive.
Sunday is a good PL day for me.

Just so that everyone knows, I am working my butt off to get the count higher! I am cataloging projects #'s 5 and 6 this week! (I think I will need another vacation!)

You need a vacation? From your statement I would say that a replacement backside should be higher on your list of needful things.

:mrgreen:

gotta go... :oops:
