No, exams aren't for a while yet, Ron.

If this is all the world has to offer, I want a refund on my life.

new software?

a rocket liftoff to discover the wisdom in the time-space continuum?

you're going to shut this place down so i can go find a real life?

c'mon!! don't be so slick with your teasing words!!! LOL... just what do you think you are, a writer or something?

ok, well, what number are we on? are you counting down from 100? from 1000? from 10?

how long between the intervals of the counting?

here's the big question... will we even KNOW when IT happens whatever it is that we're counting down to?

and how, pray tell, can i write the last question above properly to avoid using a dangling participle?

hmmmmmmm??????

To #3000?

Or is it--no, I won't say it. But is it?

God bless America, my home sweet home.

Not Valentine's Day, which will probably come first, though they may well coincide. Nope, not exams either (did you know teachers hate those as much as you do?). Not what you're thinking either, Nan, as this has little to do with me.

Doreen, you had several good ideas in there, one of which was even accurate - but still wrong. And, yes, you will know when IT happens, whatever it is to which we're counting down.  

8,984 and counting down…

Could it be “page views” per hour?

We must be heading towards a record of some kind in the number of visitors to the site? Are we approaching 100 million?

Just a rough guess, I say not new software, but perhaps a change in the software? Maybe? either that or we all disappear? LOL,,floria

RON!! Stop being so evil and tell all. This isn't right for the people that can't hold out for very long. lol

Geesh, you guys are a tough audience! I feel like maybe I should have a whip and chair before coming into this thread.

Haven't you ever heard that patience is a virtue? (Unless it's work-related, in which case they call it procrastination and make it a vice.) The faint of heart should probably go away for a while and write a really long ballad, because this countdown is going to take us a few days. Some things, ya know, just can't be easily rushed.

8,584 and counting down…

At 1:02 p.m. the number was 8984


At 7:07 p.m. the number was 8584

a difference of 400


6 hours and 5 minutes = 365 minutes

I can be patient, I really can. I just pray you are not taking away my Piptalk forever and making me get a real life. I hope and pray to the poetry gods that that prediction of Doreen's wasn't the one that was accurate. Maybe you are going to let us in on what the Backroom Moderators are all about????
Anyhow please hurry you are making my head
