10000 posts !
*Amazing* was the first word which came to my mind, because the count is just amazing by itself. But knowing you mostly from the SCJD forum, where *all* your posts are so helpful and based on sharp and clever reasonings, I find "amazing" a lightweight word to express what I feel...
How did you do that ?
Is "astoundingly amazing" correct English ?
Best regards,
Phil.

10000 posts from Jan 2000 to Dec 2003, about 200 weeks. That's 50 posts every week on average for 4 years.
Those of us who are the beneficiaries of Jim's posts know that the post count is a small part of Jim's contribution. Thank you Jim for the intellectual content of your posts.

Jim you're amazing!
Not only 16 posts, but they're all amazing. Man, if you wrote books, you could probably write about 20 / year!
Wow!

Yeah, well we'd ALL have 10,000 posts if we were as smart as Jim. I mean, it's obvious that he's found a way to work out the whole cloning thing.
Congratulations!!

In that case, what's good for the junkie is good for the ranch!

Fantastic work. I remember back when anyone getting 1000 posts was a big thing. But 10000 staggers the imagination.

Congrats Jim.
Can anyone answer a question for me. When you 'hit' a milestone does the milestone hit back? And how hard?
