Last but not least, my plans were foiled for recording a Flip video accompaniment for the TR Community scoreboard today. While several of the stats presented today were an April Fools' joke, this (sadly) is not. I will post the true stats in the discussion thread, and then cross my fingers that nothing stands in the way of next week's video.

;) And counting...

AnsuGisalas the domain of Nyarlaspamthothep.


And I'd like to jack Nyarlathotep with a ten-thousand year dose of elephant tranquilizer.


Either way, what's it like below the sewers at the sanitarium? Is the service as good below as it is above? ;)


Cthulhu in lurve: Young Cthulhu, the first billion years.


I think I need to check into a sanitarium, I actually understood that. the entire thread.


But Cthulhu looks like he's getting in the mood for lurve!


Yep. Those spammers keep dredging up zombie spam, so that gets slapped down as well. But 350! I keep telling you guys not to give that Loch Ness Monster three fifty, he'll just keep coming back to ask for more.

I've seen your ISP usage for the last week and it's defiantly correct saying that you made 1.32 Million Posts to TR in the past week. You obviously have not been working and spending all of your time attempting to post things on TR. :p Col

seems they get deleted all the time... I guess I should stop using "masturbation creme de la creme" as a title ;)

I'm in the top 5 posters. When you consider that for four days, I pretty much didn't post at all, that says a lot about forum activity from the TRegulars.

Ok, so I didn't write all of those awesome posts on TechRepublic. You can click through to see who the actual author are - or if you'd rather me just list them, here they are in the order they appear in the post: Jack Wallen, ZDNet, Patrick Gray, Deb Shinder, and Jack Wallen. The other stats were a bit off, as well. :) The most posts was really 66, the most positive votes in Discussions was 81, the most votes in Q&A was 8, and the most spam killed was 35.

TR is closing through a Lack of Interest after the Redesign as a April Fools Day Joke. :0 Col


considering its close relation to reality (as perceived by the TR regulars).
