Does anyone have that line chart showing the progession of posts up to 50,000?
posted by dios at 1:26 PM on March 13, 2006


Why is this important? There are thousands of posts that have not been made, you know.

So out of the 50,000 apparently Matt is responsible for a little over 1,000.

I'm happy to have contributed my crappy N-Machine post to this impressive tally. Though I doubt few others share that sentiment.

Way to go MeFi!

Man, those are some shitty links though.

Wrong thread. I mean the comment still fully applies here, but I meant to post in the other one.
posted by dgaicun at 1:47 PM on March 13, 2006


Thanks, dgaicun. I'll try and do better for 100,000 ;)

50,000 yer sayin!! Why Jumping jehosephat (scratches head , takes off glasses and wipes with handkerchief. Puts back on) seems like just yesterday Mefi was a wee youngun in short pants. Everything cost a nickel back then...yessiree...

I wrote a script to flag every one of the first 49,999 FPPs as noise, starting with this one and working backwards. The way I see it, they were just practice.

I always enjoy these time-travel posts.

Yeah, maybe instead of posting any random detritus on the Internet containing the number "100,000", I dunno, something good.

Woo, snark!
posted by goodnewsfortheinsane at 2:36 PM on March 13, 2006


No kidding. What's with the weak post goodnewsfortheinsane? If I knew that is what it was going to be, I wouldn't have accidentally linked to it in advanced.

I need better precognition skills. And counting skills.

Meanwhile - this thread is wonderful for the kitsch factor.

The first FPP was Cat-Scan.com.

Hot damn, these milestone threads seem to pull the old-timers out of hiding. Don't be shy, the new kids don't bite - and if you squint, it still looks the same as it did back in twenty ought two or so.
